My Arcade®, a leading provider of retro gaming devices and accessories, is thrilled to announce its sponsorship of Willis Gibson, renowned in the gaming community as Blue Scuti, for the Classic Tetris World Championship (CTWC) 2024. 

A skilled Tetris player from Stillwater, Oklahoma, Gibson at the young age of 11 years old rose to prominence after an extraordinary achievement on Dec. 21, 2023. He had secured his place in gaming history by being the first individual to conquer level 157 in the iconic Tetris game, triggering a "killscreen" and essentially completing the game. 

The collaboration marks a significant milestone as My Arcade® extends its support not only as a sponsor of the CTWC event, but also to one of the most talented players in the competitive Tetris scene.

CTWC, an annual gaming tournament that celebrates the iconic game Tetris, gathers the world's top players to compete for the prestigious title. My Arcade's sponsorship of both the event and Willis Gibson underscores the company's commitment to fostering the growth and recognition of retro gaming within the esports realm.
