I have been scouring and scrounging around and cannot for the life of me find somewhere that shows how to create a tetris-style game. A friend of mine wishes for me to learn how to do the mechanics for that because he is an artist and wants to make a game. IS there anything I can find where someone is explaining how the things work? Any and all information about this would be greatly appriciated. Thanks so much!

I have done that, but my thing is, is that I want to know how and why that works. Its why I like having people do Tutorials. Like The ones that were made by Ashley. Its not that I just want to have the events filled out for me, I want to fill them in myself, but also be able to understand why that works the way it does.
Do you have any particular questions on how to do something? I won't be making a tutorial, but I'd be happy to answer questions if I can.
A lot actually. If there is a better means of communication that I can get a hold of you with, that would be great, since you are required to have a rep of 500 to send any sort of PM. I said I prefer tutorials because it gives me step by step on how these things work, as well as an explanation on why. I will not be getting a hold of you within the next few hours, seeing it is 3 AM where I am and I work in less then 7 hours, I need to get some sleep.
Why not ask here? That way if I'm not available to answer right away other experienced users can answer as well.
I apologize for getting back to everyone so late, I have had a lot of work to do. And the reason I don't want to ask here partially is because some of the questions I have may need a deep explanation. And I dont know if you want to post it here. But if here works, that's fine by me. Let me know when you are on and we can discuss this.
most programs and engines that are similar to construct 2 use ds grids and ds stacks and ds lists to find formations of objects, but i find them annoying and tedious and difficult to understand just as you do, if there were a simpler way i am sure everyone here would love to know

It's probably unlikely that we'll be on at the same time. But ask anyway, I don't mind long explanations.
Here's a different way to do tetris, without any fancy math.
