The folks at Guinness World Records have weighed in: Frank Lee’s Tetris on the Cira Centre is the world’s largest architectural videogame display.

The whopping 119,600-square-foot effort outdid Lee’s previous world record: for Pong on the Cira Centre in 2013.

The Philly Tech Week 2014 opening event in April drew more than 2,500 people to Eakins Oval, where they watched competitors square off. The Tetris games spanned both the north and south façades of the 29-story skyscraper.
