Back in 1991 I was in 7th grade, and my uncle started making me and my brother learn DOS on his computer. We had no idea why... until later that year, we received our first computer as a Christmas present from our Grandmother. It was an Emerson with the Intel 80286 processor running at 12.5 mhz, and a 40MB hard drive. (We were thrilled, although we later found out that she made the innocent mistake of buying the 286 instead of the newer 386, which was much more expensive, and she saw no difference.)

Soon after that, a friend of mine introduced us to Blockout and I was immediately hooked! I\'ve played it on and off for over 20 years, never venturing too much into the extended blockset, but still enjoying myself. The other day I decided to look for Blockout again, not having installed it on my last two computers. I was thrilled to find this website! I still can\'t get Blockout II to work correctly on my laptop, but I was able to get the original version to work with the help of Dosbox and I\'m having a ton of fun, and getting absolutely nothing accomplished at work today!
