Not much
System: NetBSD 
Architecture: i386
Machine: i386
        /rescue/tetris tries to use /var/games/tetris.scores.  If the system
        is in a bad state, possibly with corrupted file systems, it
        would be a bad idea to write anywhere without a deliberate
        decision by the sysadmin.  Simply running a game does not count
        as as deliberate decision to write to the file system.
        press 'q' to quit.
        see this message:
        tetris: Cannot open /var/games/tetris.scores for read/write:
                Permission denied
        Disable the high scores feature in the rescue version of tetris.
