Bejeweled has always been a favorite game on the computer. My mom, to this day still the most computer illiterate person I know, actually introduced me. I sometimes spend hours when I visit their house trying to beat my mom’s score.
Available now, Bejeweled has come out with a brand new board game version of it’s popular computer game. I love that I can now sit around the table and play Bejeweled Frenzy with my family.
It’s a sparkly flurry of a card game as kids race to match gems and build the largest stack of cards in Hasbro’s BEJEWELED Frenzy game. Kids will love competing with their friends to collapse their stack, collect Boost Gems and score the most points to win! The game comes with a link to redeem four Rare Gems to be used in the Bejeweled Blitz online game. Mobile device not included. To access the digital features, you must be 13 years or older and have a valid Facebook account. Additional terms and conditions apply to digital features offer.
Age: 8+; Players: 2-4; Available: Spring 2013; Approximate Retail Price: $14.99
This is such a fun way to spend a bit of time as a family. I like how they incorporate the gems, and the fact that you can even build upon your collection of jewels. What can I say? I guess I’m drawn towards things that are shiny. But the game itself is fairly easy, though probably best for older kids to really get it. You build upon your collection of cards until your colors match and you decide it’s time to collapse. We had a great time with it and will definitely be playing again!
I received a copy of the game for the purpose of this review. Thoughts are my own.
