Bejeweled 3

Over half a billion people have played “Bejeweled,” the popular game from PopCap, and version 3 is now out for Nintendo DS, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. You may have played it on a computer, an iPhone or the airline seatback.

The game continues to sell at the rate of one copy every 4.3 seconds. (This reminds Bob of expert’s predictions 25 years ago that games would soon disappear from computers as serious business programs took over.)

Bejeweled 3 lets you explode colored jewels in a myriad of ways. We were surprised to see “poker mode,” “butterfly mode,” “diamond mine,” and “ice storm.”
