There are many ways to play the classic video game "Tetris" -- on PCs, smartphones, video game consoles, and now, on the side of a skyscraper.

What organizers are billing as the world's largest game of "Tetris" was created using computer-controlled LED lights on Philadelphia's 29-story Circa Centre. On Saturday, a few lucky players were given an arcade-style joystick to control the falling blocks.

The event was part of celebrations marking the 30th anniversary of "Tetris," one of the best-selling video games of all time.
