Bejeweled Blitz on Facebook

Captain's Log, Stardate 10.23.2009

Let me start off by saying that I’m normally not a games person. I’ve never really gotten into games, both computer games and regular games.

(Although I will confess that sometimes the games we played with the Junior High kids at church which involved inflicting physical pain and suffering on them was rather amusing to me, although I’m sure that says something frightening about me psychologically.)

All that aside, I am completed addicted to the Bejeweled Blitz game on Facebook. I don’t know why it is, because I wasn’t particularly good at Tetris back in the day, and this is a lot like Tetris.

Anything involving looking ahead and planning moves and logic is rather hard for me—it kind of makes my brain hurt—so why I like Bejeweled is a mystery.

Actually, I think I know why. High scoring moves involve lots of explosions and blowing up sounds. :) Camy likey explosions.

Anyone else play this game on Facebook?


  1. I'm addicted too! It's a fun game! Though I don't know how some people have scored over 2 million points! Wowza!

  2. 2 million points??? Holy guacamole! They must be the kind of gifted people who can decide what moves to make that would maximize point value, like they can see ahead a few moves and predict movements in their head fast enough to decide what to move when given several choices.


  3. Oh I love it too but its very addictive
    now is this the 1 min game or the one that you can play till you time out?
    will have to go play now.

  4. Will have to look it up. I play Literati, a word game on Yahoo Games that's also addictive.

  5. I have wasted WAY too many hours playing Bejeweled on Facebook. Unfortunately, I see many more hours in my future! Seeing that one of my friends is scoring higher sends me into a frenzy. Sigh. I love the explosions, too.
