Online

When playing online we understand that the growing cost of 2nd hand consoles and the disappearing number of PAL versions available should not be limiting new players to enter the wonderful world of Tetris.

CTEC is not officially supporting clone creations but is neither in a position to deny the presentation on the systems listed above. 

If you are doubting wether or not your system will meet the standard criteria then make sure there is no option for save states and no option to use roms by default

On Location

When partecipating in CTEC On Location, players will strictly be competing on original Nintendo-licensed hardware. We do not use or accept copies, clones and the like. There will be stations with NES console, tested controller & CRT TV available to all who participates. However, there will be a queing system.

Players are allowed to bring their own original unmodified NES controller to competition.
