About Bejeweled 3

The goal of Bejeweled 3 is to swap pairs of gems in order to create lines of matched gems.

The main game screen is an 8 x 8 grid of gems. Make lines of three by swapping gems with adjacent gems. When a match is made, the matched gems disappear and more gems fall into the board from above. Create powerful Special Gems by making matches of 4 or more. The game ends when you run out of moves (in Classic Mode), when you run out of time (in Lightning Mode), or for various other reasons (in Quest Mode). Zen Mode is never-ending and allows you to play an eternal persistent game. Much of this information has been taken from the official Bejeweled 3 Readme file, which generally (Readme files) are not looked at quite enough.
