The tetrion is the frame that surrounds the playfield. Henk Rogers has defined "tetrion" as the machine that plays Tetris.[1]

Different tetrions may implement different variations of the game rules. For example, TAP indicates the game mode with different frame colors:

Normal
TGM Legend Tetrion 1.png
Master
Doubles
TGM Legend Tetrion 3.png
T.A. Death
TGM Legend Tetrion 4.png
TGM+

Similar to TAP, TGM3 uses differently colored tetrions for each game mode:

  • Easy: Green
  • Sakura: Pink
  • Master: Blue
  • Shirase: Red

In Tetris Worlds, tetrions are described as gateways which, when opened, give the Minos access to a new planet in their galaxy suitable for terraforming.
