I found this game on Facebook, and it's terribly addictive...I spent 2 hours playing it the other night and lost track of time :oops:

My question is, I've googled the game and it's around $20 to buy and download online (more expensive through Bigpuddle though I notice :? ). I want to know if I can buy it from a physical shop or if it's only available online. I have a credit card so that's not a problem, but my husband isn't too keen on downloading software in case there's a bug in it - he's a bit of a Luddite :wink:

You can play the game for free from the [url=http://www.popcap.com/games/free/bejeweled2/]Pop Cap webite[/url], however I'm not sure if there's a disc version of it, I may have seen Mac versions at one time but that's it.

If you download from the Pop Cap website or from [url=http://store.steampowered.com/app/3300/]Steam[/url], you should be fine. You might even trip over a sale period with the latter; I managed to get another Pop Cap game, Peggle, from $US5 instead of $USwhaever the price was. By the way, don't play Peggle if you treasure your free time - it's somewhat addictive.

The lesson: Pop Cap are evil!

I'm pretty sure it's on Xbox Live Arcade, if you have an Xbox 360.

You missed the point. On Xbox Live it's re-downloadable so there's no risk of losing it.

I have downloaded it from MSN Games with no problems at all. Yes, it is terribly addictive, especially on a 19" monitor.

Thanks all :)
I've decided to play it online from the Pop Cap website and have a look around to see if I can find it on a disc, or a similar game.

Yuppieville - yes Pop Cap are evil.... :twisted: :D

We went to Dick Smiths and found another version of this game called Bejewelled Twist. We registered it online (a site called Mindscape) and received a 20% discount on our next purchase - lo and behold they had Bejewelled 2 so I managed to get the disc for just over $20 including postage :dance:

Here's to a lot of wasted hours..... :wink: :D

You can get games for a lot less than that from Big Fish games.

Bejeweled sure is addictive but I found another addictive game that I like more called Chuzzle.
My dad's pc had a sample of Chuzzle, which allowed only 30 mins of play before you got a message saying you could buy it for $19 online.

A few days later I stumbled upon a copy of the game for PC at Kmart, the only copy of it there, and snapped it up. It was $20 but well worth it for hours of addictive gameplay.
