Get Higher Bejeweled Blitz Scores Fast

Are you ready for the secret to higher Bejeweled Blitz scores?

Well, here it is: Cascades.

That's it. Get gems crashing down the screen pairing up, matching, exploding, and taking out row after row of gems while the points rack up and your eyes squint into the blinding commotion, and you'll have the highest Bejeweled Blitz score you can get.

Making cascades happen in Bejeweled Blitz is easy. Actually, it isn't always easy. Not every Bejeweled Blitz board can be scored for huge points. The layout of the gems at the beginning of the game is setup in a pseudo-random process. That means that some games are just not going to be high scorers. Some boards will be impossible to make a top score on. Just get over it, and play another game.

You can't force a Bejeweled Blitz cascade. What you can do, is make it much more likely to happen. The key to cascades is making matches near the bottom of the screen. Don't get distracted by going up to the top to make matches that will create a flame gem, or moving around gems to fire off of star gem. Going off target like that is a sure way to get a highscore that will make your mommy say, "Your father and I have always been so proud of you, no matter what you do." That's her way of saying, are you sure you didn't hit your head too hard? The poodle can score better than that.

You can match several star gems, flame gems, and hypercube gems, but without a cascade, you'll be looking at a sub 100,000 points score. If that impresses your friends, it's time to move up a grade level.

The only exception are multiplier gems. That precious gemstones with the 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, or even 6x are worth their weight in gold. But, guess how you generate multiplication gems? With cascades! The more gems that match and disappear quickly as gems fall down the screen and match up automatically, the more multiplier gems get created. Each subsequent score multiplying gem increases in value. Two times, then three times, then four times, and so on. Play a one-minute game of Bejeweled Blitz with 30-seconds of 5x multiplier in effect and you'll see what a really high score can look like.

However, don't get lost! If you can't match it right away with a single one-second glance, get back to work matching down low. Chances are, it will fall into place for an easier match-up within a few seconds. It might even match itself up and take effect without your help.

To score high in Bejeweled Blitz on Facebook, stay low, match fast. Don't analyze, deliberate, or try to set things up. Your setups will burst and fail before you can execute them if you are playing well enough. Otherwise, you are matching so slow and dainty, that your kid sister will be trying not to laugh too loud.
