Perhaps you've seen that we've been playing in the beta for PopCap's Zuma Blitz. I thought I was doing well. In the first tournament I was third place among us all. I felt good about a score of 366,670, which I acquired by clicking so many times that my hand went numb. The next morning our Jonathan Ross managed to demolish my score, though I was able to keep my third place ranking, right under him. And this morning Conrad Zimmerman took the bar so high that all I could do was throw my hands up and say f*ck it.
I said that I threw the towel in, but PopCap sent me some words of encouragement. And some tips, which we've shared below. All of these smug winners are quick to share their own tips, so it's nice to see something official. I didn't know about htis Curve Clear Bonus. I'm going to try for that. Not that it would help me much at this point.
