I'm not sure about extending this thread, but...
The four-block shapes can be called `tetrominoes'. We could just
call them "Tetro" or "Tetrom" based on this. Would this still be a
problem? It predates the "Tetris" game just a bit. (IANAL)
Maybe we whould just describe them as "tetromino games". I've also
seen it called a "falling bricks game".
