Subject: Re: How do you play
To get high scores you have to try to get the marbles into
large groups before you delete them. It's really pretty tricky to get
consistant high scores. Deleting two marbles gives you 2 points, but
deleting 4 at a time gives you twelve, 5 gives you 20, and 6 gives you 30. A
group of 13 will give you 156 points alone. On the other hand, I just deleted
all but one marble but only got 258 because I couldn't make any big groups.
I'm supposed to be working on my web site but this is lots more fun.

I got a 578 yesterday--got all the marbles used up! Of
course, I didn't
get much work done. I did not need
a game here at work. I figure that if
playing it I'll get really sick of it, then I can get back to
OK, what is your strategy? It
took me awhile to figure out I need to click twice on a group of marbles,
and another while to figure out I'm suppose to make as many marbles as
possible disappear. Can you tell I don't play very many games??
