And when you're thinking about interlocking irregular bricks day and night, you're bound to acquire some skill for fitting shapes together. Hence why Kotaku decided that a Tetris master was the perfect person to dish out tips on packing up the truck for a move.
Here's Tran's advice:
- Take a glimpse at your next pieces (moving boxes in this case) to determine the best placement positions.
- If you have a box that doesn't fit neatly, hold onto it and un-hold it when it won't mess everything up.
- Stack as flat as possible. The even field will save you reaction time and give you more stacking options.
- Avoid creating unnecessary gaps to maximize space usage.
- Leave an empty column open for your long boxes, and if you don't have any long boxes buy some.
- Don't waste your long boxes! (Don't use 'em until you need 'em to fit a space)
- Multiplayer will help you reach a faster time, so have some friends and family help you out.
It turns out hardcore gamers can teach us more than how to make a doppelganger avatar in Second Life. Just remember that unlike Tetris, not all boxes weigh the same.
