tetris was the first video game played in space – Russian cosmonaut Aleksandr A. Serebrov took his Game Boy with him on his mission to the MIR space station in 1993 and played Tetris in his (limited) free time.
In 2008, NASA astronaut Greg Chamitoff played several remote chess games from the International Space Station against various planet-bound earthlings. He used a felt board and attached velcro to the bottom of the pieces to ensure none of them disappeared into the void.
The very first space sport was a 2018 Double Badminton Match between Russian, American and Japanese crew members of the ISS. The zero-gravity environment made things a little tricky, but at the end of the day, they didn’t even count – “friendship won.”
