Diamonds are forever and this is not just because they are very tough and can outlast any other material in the world. The word was coined to mean that if you gave a gift of a diamond then you would forever be in the mind of the person you are gifting. However, recent tines have shown that the second school of thought is fast fading into materialism. In this free online gems game, you are going to look for diamonds as you mine them in the mineshaft. The diamonds are placed on a board in which you get to remove them by matching 3 or more that look alike. They will be removed from the board and you will get a certain number of points. The aim of the game is to remove as many gems as you can within the shortest time possible. The level is timed so you really have to try and be fast. There is an extra challenge added to the game and that is the fact that you will be playing against other players. Usually you play against the computer but now you get to play against a living person who is on the other side of the planet; not necessarily, but one should just hope that this is the case. You have to try and get what is called a combo score; this happens when you remove gems, and those that fall from above, to fill in the empty space. Also form new sets and are removed without you having to play another round. Combo scores bring a lot of points and that is why one must look for them at all points. You should make sure that you beat your opponent at finding these settings by looking ahead and seeing the pattern which will bring you such a score.
