Hi Caprinette,

No problem! Here are some details about how scoring is calculated in Bejeweled Blitz:

The base value for a single match (3 gems) is 250 points.

The base value for creating a Flame Gem is 500 points. The base value for detonating a Flame Gem is 250 points for making the match, 100 points for detonating the Flame Gem, and 100 points per gem destroyed (including the Flame Gem).

The base value for creating a Hypercube is 500 points. The base value for detonating a Hypercube is 250 for the detonation plus 250 points per gem destroyed.

The base value for creating a Star Gem is 750 points. The base value for detonating a Star Gem is 250 points for the detonation plus 250 points per gem destroyed.

The base value for making two simultaneous matches is 250 per match plus a 250 point bonus, or 750 points.

The base value for matching a Multiplier is 1000 points x the Multiplier value.

The base value for matching a Coin Gem is 1250 points plus 250 points for the match, or 1500 points total.

The base value for a cascade is 250 bonus points per cascade. So, a match that creates two cascades would score 250 points, plus 500 points, plus 750 points, or 1500 points total.

The base value of the Speed Bonus starts at 200 points and is added to the score for a match. Speed Bonuses increase by 100 points each match as long as the Speed Bonus is maintained to a maximum of 1000 points.

The base value for an unused Detonate Boost or Scramble Boost is 1500 points each.

All these values (except for the Multiplier's base value) are then multiplied by the current Multiplier value. Moves that match Multipliers are multiplied by that Multiplier value.

I hope this helps!
