Step 4: Gluuuuuuuuuue!

Now that you have all your squares cut out, they may need a little flattening. Get a Lego guy to help you, or lay a big heavy book like the Bible or the Koran or The Stand on there. Once the pieces are flat enough for you, you'll want to arrange them on your posterboard and see how they will fit. I only had a strip of board, so I didn't do all the shapes. with a full sheet of posterboard, you could have a whole fridge of tetris!
Once you're satisfied with the layout, heat up your gluegun and get cracking!
or make them one block and play a game of fridge tetris with your friends and every line cleared you just take them off :) im a geunus
WOW, ok, Please, give me an idea where I can find the magnets! are stickers? stripes? Thank you erik
I got all the materials at the hardware store. You might want to ask an employee, as most of this stuff is kind of obscure in a hardware store. The magnet comes in a roll, one side is sticky. My other option, which I didn't wind up using as I found the magnet tape was to go to the dollar store, buy a bunch of crappy magnets, and rip the fronts off of them to get at the plain magnet.
lmao if tetris becomes the ew k'nex of instructables!
Next up -- my totally rad tetris gun! you'll need two L shapes, a Z shape, and it fires rectangles heh
Glad to be help out with the inspiration.
Me fail English? Thats unpossible.
I'm expecting some of these for Christmas -- but I want the right colors and shapes - don't skimp on the posterboard!
Wow, people are totally taking off on the Tetris Theme :) I'm not complaining -- I think it's cool )
Great idea with the cork board on top of the magnets. I guess if they were thick enough you could use a couple push pins and double up on the holding factor of the magnet.
Oooo, I like that. I was thinking about doing multiple layers, but I was concerned it wouldn't come out looking as nice. Really ideally it would be done with wood blocks like Tetranitrate's mold positive.
