Bejeweled is a time consuming addictive game. It is now available on Facebook. You can compete against your friends. But be warned, if you start playing you will waste many hours trying to get a higher and higher score and show up all your friends.
Today we were hanging out at the beach house and kept trying to play Bejeweled. It wouldn’t load. We went out to a movie and grocery shopping and came back. We tried Bejeweled again (I told you it was addicting.), still nothing. And now we know why. On the Facebook Bejeweled Biltz page a note had been posted:
There was a major fire at Bejeweled Blitz’s server hosting facility last night. We would like to say that the heat of everybody’s gem swapping burned up the servers, but unfortunately in this case it was an actual fire.
Bejeweled Blitz will not be available until the damage is cleaned up and generators are brought in to restore power. Our current estimate is that we will be back up later tonight (Seattle Time).
When the game does come back up, you may notice that some of your friends’ scores from this week appear to have been erased. Don’t worry — all scores are safe and secure in our database, and they will start to show correctly as you and your friends visit the game.
Thanks for playing Bejeweled Blitz. We are working very hard to get the game up and running for you as soon as possible, and we appreciate your patience.

Bummer! Guess we’ll have to watch tv and play Wii. Hopefully they will get Bejeweled up and running soon and we can waste more time! 🙂
