WATCH: Philadelphia plays Tetris across skyscraper

Have you ever played Tetris across a skyscraper-sized screen? Philadelphia has.

"To kick off the Philly Tech Week festival, Philadelphians gathered for their chance to play the classic arcade game on the side of the 29-story Cira Centre," reports Time. "Hundreds of LED lights embedded in the building’s glass facade displayed the falling blocks, which competitors controlled with joysticks."

In a similar gaming event last year, participants played video classic Pong on the larger-than-life game board.
