Think hard! And turn those lumps of coal you call brain cells into some brain gems!

If you like word jumbles, crosswords, word ladders, word association, bad puns, anagrams, fill-in-the-blanks and trivia you should try Brain Gems!

Brain Gems is a fun and addictive word game that combines elements from all of these games into a nice shiny diamond!

Each puzzle consists of crossword-style clues where all of the answers fit into a diamond shape. So shorter words are on the top and bottom, while longer words are closer to the center. Once you answer a clue correctly, you reveal that word in the diamond!

And once you get one answer right, you now have another hint to the remaining clues, since neighboring answers share letters!

Clues are a wide variety of trivia, definitions, pop-culture, movies, television, stars, quotes, bad puns, songs, capitals, language, vocabulary, logic, fill-in-the-blanks, geography, word play and much more!

If you love word games, then you just might love Brain Gems too! So test your skills and solve the diamonds!

Brain Gems provides hours of entertainment for you, your family and friends!

Must Have For Wordsmiths

I literally stumbled upon this game and I'm glad I did. As a NY Times and Bonza addict, I find this a great addition to my collection of word games. It makes you think and have fun at the same time.
I HAVE ONE COMPLAINT: THE GAME REWARDS YOU WITH AN ADDITIONAL 50 GAMES IF YOU "LIKE" THEM. NEWSFLASH NOT EVERYONE IS ON FACEBOOK! It would make more sense to reward players with the extra games if they take the time to write a review.
I still very much recommend giving the game a try. You won't be sorry.

HELP! I'VE RUN OUT OF GAMES. I hope you guys have your thinking caps on, please.


Could be smarter

This is a fun little word game, where each word is built upon the letters of the word before it to form a diamond pattern. The only thing that annoys me is the fact that some of the clues are just plain wrong. For example, the answer to "cooking by browning in fat" was braise, but braising is slow cooking in liquid and does not use fat at all. I've only been playing this for a few days and I've found several similar mistakes. A glacier is not a floating chunk of ice. If this is meant to stimulate intelligence, the clues should be more intelligent.
