That is just my list.

I thought about grabbing a master list from elsewhere, but this will be more fun. ^_^

You never played the normal NES Tetris? Just wondering because you seem to be fascinated of the Tetrizoid concept.

I collected my first experience on Game Boy (Tetris DX + 1989). Multris was my first multiplayer clone.

None of them are in my path:

TetriNET > TetriFast > Quadra > Cultris I > Cultris II

 Irrelevant. This is MULTIPLAYER games.

Tetris (Microsoft) and ZTetris (TI-85) are multiplayer capable? I wouldn't call Tengen Tetris multiplayer BTW.

PS: The question "When did you spawn?" is irrelevant, too?

MS Tetris had a VS mode with optional garbage sending.

ZTetris featured hard drop and VS play with Game Boy style garbage via data link cable. Smashing noobs in math class was awesome, especially one prick who thought he was hot shit for beating my marathon score. ^_^

For many of the NES generation, Tengen was their first taste of Tetris since it was available for rental before the later NES version was released. At that time, nobody was a "Tetris Master" so the simultaneous marathon mode did present a competitive multiplayer environment i.e. noob vs noob. This is why so many from the era mistakenly remember that Tengen Tetris had garbage sending. Point is, for many like myself, this is where the multiplayer bug first bit them.

the word is "whence", not "when"
