Fans of the game Bejeweled may be skeptical of the new, physical board game version of it. They need not be, however, as the 3D version is a fun, family game that develops strategic thinking.

The game comes with 84 regular gems, 7 glittery power gems, 70 scoring coins, a bag for holding the gems, and the game tray. Begin by placing sixty-four regular gems on the game tray, making sure that at no point are three gems of the same color in a row. Then, each player takes turns swapping gems as they try to arrange three or more gems in a row. Coins are awarded for each matching set of gems, and extras are earned for sets that include power gems or more than three gems in a row. The first player to score three coins of three different colors wins.
