Graphic for the "Attack of the Tetriminos!" Spirit Board event.

Attack of the Tetriminos! was a Spirit Board event focused on spirits from the Tetris series, which featured Tetriminos as spirits. It ran from 6 a.m on October 25, 2019 to 6 a.m. on October 30, 2019 (UTC). During the event, defeating spirits on the Spirit Board which were part of the event awarded more Gold than usual.

  • Attack of the Tetriminos! is the first Spirit Board event released after the version 4.0.0 update to be followed by another Spirit Board event rather than an Event Tourney.
