I’ve featured some geektastic afghans here on GeekCrafts, such as Lattes & Llamas Geek-a-Longs (2014 and 2015), as well as a Settlers of Catan blanket. On Ravelry recently I stumbled across this beauty by Alicia1018, which she aptly calls her GamerGhan.
Twenty-five crochet squares pay homage to a variety of video games, including Tetris, Minecraft, Angry Birds, Harvest Moon, Pac-Man, World of Warcraft, and Oblivion. Alicia very kindly uploaded patterns for all of the squares – you can find them linked in her Ravelry project post.
What video games would you include in blanket form? Let us know in the comments below!

I would absolutely love to have this set of Tetris bookshelves in my living room! Or my bedroom, kitchen, or bathroom, for that matter! They are so awesome! And the best bit is that each Tetris piece is separate, so you can arrange them however you’d like! It was made by johloh on Craftster, and I definitely think he should go into business making more!
Do you know the feeling of standing in front of the fridge and just not knowing what to make for dinner? I certainly do! This colorful set of heart-shaped cross-stitched Tetris magnets will surely give you something to puzzle with in these moments of despair. Kirsty Willis sells them on her UK-based Etsy store, together with other cross-stitching work, embroidery and patchwork.
This picture was emailed to be by Alea, who’s mom made these oven cloths. Pretty awesome, right? I’ll let Alea explain in her own words;
Basically I just asked her if she could crochet stuff like that and she said she’ll give it a try. Took her about a year to find the time to do it, but for me it was worth waiting. The funny thing is that although the Game Boys we used to have belonged to me and my sister, my Mom was the one playing Tetris all the time and setting the highest records.
Well Alea’s mom doesn’t have a blog, or an Etsy or even a flicker account, so I’m afraid for now this pic is all your getting (but if we all gang up I’m sure we can persuade her to show off her brilliantness a bit more). In the mean time, I’m jealous because my mum can’t crochet OR play Tetris….
Today I want to show you this amazing Tetris Side Table made by Annahowardshaw from Instructables.
The whole table is made from scratch and we are given the complete tutorial so you can create your own piece of retro geek furniture. The Tetris pieces are made from wooden cubes stuck together, sanded and painted. They are then glued on to the table after arranging them carefully.
