  • Playing too much bastet may screw up how you play regular tetris, since the strategy for each is slightly different.

    I had no idea about the Egyptian goddess, though.

      Rather than discuouraging me, this suggests me it could be a tempting experiment. Point is, although I regard myself as a rather good regular tetris player, I still haven't found any strategy for the damned beast that bastet is... ;-)

      I had no idea about the Egyptian goddess, though.

      So did I up until saturday. My therapy was to begin late in the evening and I had virtually nothing to do for the rest of the day, thus I asked for a permission, which they conceded me, and took the chance to visit Turin and it's rather famous Egyptian Museum [museoegizio.it]. Bastet was not so heavily represented as Sekhmet, the other feline goddess, and the one regarded as the fiercer of the two, at least from some point on, but I did notice a statue, and immediately recognized the name.

      The lesson to be learned, though, is what I read in Wikipedia, specifically that Bast/Bastet was regarded as lioness herself originally, and only later on as a domestic cat, occasionally depicted holding a lionness mask, which hinted at suppressed ferocity.
