Bejeweled Blitz Stats July 27, 2010

I say it too often that I play a lot of Bejeweled Blitz.

I finally got around to it and took screenshot of the stats (well, it actually took 15 screenshots and a bit of trickery, but who’s counting?).

That’s a total of 7495 star medals that I’ve accumulated since PopCap started keeping stats. It’s pretty close to the number of games I’ve played since I so rarely score less than 25k.

I wonder how many games other people have played?

I’m also reminded why I was prompted to actually make a count – the “once in a century” thing that’s mentioned when the Moonstone Rare Gem appears. I took these screenshots just after my second Moonstone. That was two days ago. I got my third Moonstone today. Did I play 100 games between the second and third? According to my star badges: no. Apparently I’ve won only 19 star badges between the two. But I’m sure I’ve played a -lot- more games than that!

Following on from my previous post, I managed to get another Moonstone.

“You found a Rare Gem!” “What a find!”

I’m not sure what is meant by “only once in a century” – does it mean it will appear once every 100 games I play? If that’s the case, then I must play way too often. :D

What other “Rare Gems” will they come up with?

Kobo is a no go July 19, 2010

I walked past a book store that had two Kobo readers available for demonstration. There was already one person trying one out, so I tried to use the other one. And failed. It was not responding. The other person said he’d tried to use it too, but it didn’t work.

He moved on, so I tried the other Kobo. The navigation was not as intuitive as one would expect, and the response time was hideously slow. I had trouble understanding why it was not responding only to finally realise that I’d been pressing the menu button instead of a button to turn the page. And this was after I’d tried swipe movements on the screen. How silly of me to expect that one could turn the pages by swiping my finger across the screen like one can on an iPhone or iPad.

I won’t be getting a Kobo, that’s for sure.

Bejeweled Blitz Moon Gem July 19, 2010

I got a Moonstone Gem the other day. I have no idea what it did, and I forgot to take a screenshot of the explanation before I started the game. :( It cost me 25k coins though. But I had plenty to spare. Thanks to the new Daily Spin thing. :)

I did take a screenshot when I started the game.
