How to play

Drop gems into the board, lining up 3 or more to score points and bonuses. Only the secret color you choose at game start gets you closer to victory; all others are just to keep your opponents guessing. You can flip the current gem between two choices and also have the ability to hide a bomb in the gems you drop. Anyone scoring on a bombed set gets zero points for the entire turn! Just don’t forget where you put it…

First one to 50 points wins!
