Bejeweled strategy

Well, the truth is that there is a lot of luck involved. Some people prefer to pick matches from the top rows of gems, leaving a couple potential matches on the lower reaches as a ‘reserve.’ On the other hand, particularly in the timed game, some players prefer to make matches on the bottom rows to maximize their chances of a big cascade, with its correspondingly big time bonus. But if you’re playing the non-timed version, probably the most useful strategy is just to cross your fingers and pray.
The best strategy is no-strategy according to the creator of Bejeweled, the most addictive game since Tetris. You can play Bejeweled (a.k.a. 'Diamond Mine') online at the Popcap Games site. See also these 'best games on the web' picks.
