Hasbro, PopCap Teaming Up For New Bejeweled-Based Games

You've played it on your PC, your phone, and just about every other device with a screen. Now PopCap and Hasbro have announced that the popular match-three game Bejeweled is heading over to the world of physical gaming. The companies are releasing a pair of new games this spring.

The announcement certainly clears up earlier confusion about the Bejeweled Frenzy domain registration. Bejeweled Frenzy is a card game that challenges players to build stacks of matching cards as quickly as possible. The imaginatively titled Bejeweled is a board game based on the traditional sliding-gem mechanic. Both games include download codes, with Bejeweled Frenzy players getting a voucher for four Bejeweled Blitz gems, and the straight-up Bejeweled players scoring a code for a Bejeweled 3 download.

Regardless of what version you pick, keep in mind that it's going to be a lot harder to conceal your play sessions at work. You can't exactly minimize a board game when your boss walks by.
