If you've ever wondered what happens when Tetris is mashed with a pumpkin, wonder no more. Let the mastermind behind Haba Bird show you how it's done.

Everything worked great, except for some occasional glitches in the top matrix as the night went on. Maybe a power supply issue, but it's also possible there might be some intermittent shorts that happen when you bury that many electrical connections inside a pumpkin. It's also weird playing with the controller on the top and the display underneath, so if I were to do it again I would wire the joystem into a separate pumpkin, either wireless or with the wire made to look like a vine.

Next up? Porting Halo to a watermelon.
