My New Addiction


"Hi, my name is Major Mom and I have a problem."

"Hi Major Mom!"

I'm addicted to a silly little game on Facebook. It's called "Bejeweled Blitz" and Facebook went and made it interesting by turning it into a challenge against my other Facebook friends. So if I hear about one of my friends beating my high score, I'm on Facebook trying to beat him or her.

Unlike the classic game "Bejeweled" that's available on the web, the version on Facebook is timed. So it's as many jewels as can be cleared in just 1 minute.

I'll spend HOURS on this! It reminds me of how I was with Tetris back in the late 80s/early 90s! A lot of it is luck, but there's quite a bit of skill involved, too. I think Dave was worried about me for a while because I had a period where I did this instead of, say, laundry, dishes, or cooking dinner.

Jacob even plays this game now, but he prefers an untimed version on Popcap.com, or else the version on the game on Webkinz, where he can earn Kinzcash for his pets.

So if you're wondering where I am instead of blogging, I'm probably wasting my life away with video games.

My husband is also addicted. He is determined to beat your score :)

The first step is understanding the rules, I couldn't really get past 75,000 until I learned more about how the 2x, 3x, and 4x crystals drop down: you need to clear 12+ crystals with one step. Other than that, it's speed, speed, speed. I never look at the score until I'm done.

Chuck wants to know where to find the rules. Or do you just have to figure it all out? Thanks!

Try this website when you're on Facebook: http://apps.facebook.com/bejeweledblitz/gameplay.php. That's what I used. There are a couple of good things on this website, too, but it's mainly for the full-downloaded version: http://www.games.com/game-tips/bejeweled-2. I never thought to focus on the top of the playboard.
