I hope you surpass me, it'll give me reason to play the game again :D
And in regards to tips, when the board reaches 3/4 full, sometimes slamming a few pieces down makes a difference. Also my strategy is to just play normal tetris for as long as possible, and to always attempt to regain control of a board. Never resign yourself to just playing with angles and chips everywhere, always strive for normalcy.
That's all really. And don't be afraid to only play a few games a day. I only play one or two. It's the same with Temple Run. I only play one game a day, and my high score is 192,000,000 :3
Edit: I should also mention that the block physics (the overall stability of the structure and the predictability of placements) will actually vary from computer to computer, so my strategy may not work for you. Also as an aside to Maurice, it would be cool to have more rocket types. It's too easy to get the final one :)
