My high this week is 316K. (I about fainted, usual is around 225k).

My tips, start as soon as the board falls in (don't wait for "go"). You can blast a couple sets before the "go" even comes in.

I don't worry a whole lot about getting 4's or 5's intentionally. I just pretty much concentrate on continually making sets. As soon as you do one, immediately go to the next one to move. I often switch from one side to the other so one side can "settle" while I'm working on the other. Do your best to zone out any fancy tricks, blasts going on.

I do keep an eye on x2 x3, etc to use those if I can. Also use the 5 in a row diamond things on whatever color has the multiplier.

And I probably play more than I should.

Wow over 300,000! I am still trying to break over 200,000. My DH and I have a little competition going on however his current score is over 286,000. I wish I could figure out how he does it.

Ok - Give up the clues

Are we playing the same game? I am playing the one that goes for one minute only. I can only get 70K. Either you guys are the most talented players in the world or I am at the wrong game.

Please tell. Are we playing the one minute version? If so, wowsa to you guys. What are the hints.

If I am not playing the same game, where do I get the one you guys are playing?

I think you are all playing the same game. It's totally amazing. One game can be at 10,000 and the next at 100,000. My GF consistently scores well over 250,000 while I hover at 100,000. I'm curious to see if anyone has any tips. I try and try but just can't get the big numbers.

My highest score has been 285,000 and my current is 175,000. I think it is easier since they changed it for some reason. I agree with the post that said don't wait for the GO, start immediately. Also, you get a bonus for speed, so focus on getting the matches quickly. They have a button at the top of the game that says "tip & tricks" which has good info, too. I'm rather addicted to Bejeweled Blitz and dream of getting over 300,000 someday.

I'm admitting to how pathetic I am, but the high scores come with putting in a lot of time playing. After a while, you don't have to "look" so hard and can find the matches and move a lot faster. Also, you have to get multipliers to get the high scores. My highest scores come with usually at least a 4X multiplier and the great scores are when I get a 5x or 6x.

I will admit, I often quit and scrap games if by 30 seconds in I don't have any multipliers because I know there's no way I'll get a good score. My highest score was 290 something. I haven't broken the 300 yet, but I have a friend who got a score over 500. That must have been a wild minute!

I'm completely addicted to this game. My highest score is 330,600 but right now I'm at 324,250. I have a friend who's at 369,850 so I'm really trying to beat her, but I don't think it'll happen. I do think it's easier since they changed it; before that I'd only hit 250,000 a few times, now I can do it daily. I can also now occasionally get up to 7x or 8x, before I only hit 5x or 6x. My friend's scores have all shot way up too on average.

I always start before the go, I don't pick up the mouse, I click (and hold down) then slide it to the color I want to swap it with, I try to find swaps on the bottom of the screen, when the screen turns that funky yellow I try and swap as many 3 combos as possible, this seems to make more jewels explode (it's best if you can get them to explode near a 2x, 3x, etc), if you have more blinky jewels at the end you get a bigger last hurrah, and if you can use one jewel to complete two sets at the same time it's better also. Oh, and don't be afraid to use the hint button, you're not penalized for it.
