If you're like Donald who can't win to save his life, you still might get the gold.

The Tetris 99 Cup will return this weekend, with more opportunities to bring home the (999) gold (coins).

Running from Friday at 9 a.m. EDT to 2:59 a.m. Monday morning, the tournament will award 999 My Nintendo Gold Coins ($9.99) for top players. The second competition will institute a points system based on finishes during the play time, with 100 points being equivalent to a win, and the top 999 scorers receiving the money.

The victorious players will receive their prizes the week of April 28.

This is a game that I play a match or two every now and again. As such, I will never win one of these competitions.

It's cool that they have them, tho.

I saw a bunch of tweets about this an none mentioned the format change.

I'm very excited that they made the change as someone who got second place three matches in a row during the last Maximus.
