Idea Behind the Game

Gems 3D is a game of order, chance and organization. Gems 3D is played in turns. With each turn three new gems fall on the 9x9 playing board, and player has a chance to move one gem on the board to another empty location. The goal is to play as long as possible and to earn the highest score by forming vertical, horizontal or diagonal lines of five or more gems of the same type. Once aligned to form a line gems disappear, and free board space is gained. The game ends when the entire playing board is full.

Playing Board

The playing board has 9x9 cells:

There are 16 types of gems in the game, but all of them can not played on the board at any given time. There are 7 gems that are drawn from 16 types randomly that you can play on the board by default. Thus when you begin a new game you may get gems that you have not seen before!

To Move a Gem...

To move gem select a gem first by clicking on it. Then click on an empty board cell where you want it to go. If nothing happens and the gem stays where it was then there is no clear path between its original position and the destination cell.

Scoring Formations

To score points and gain free board space one must form vertical, horizontal or diagonal lines of five or more gems of the same type. It's just like playing bingo game where your goal is to create a horizontal, vertical or diagonal line. Combined formations of vertical, horizontal or diagonal lines are also accepted.

Bonus for scoring formations depends on the number of gems in formation. The more gems are information, the higher is the bonus.

# of Gems Bonus
5 5
6 8
7 13
8 20
9 29
N (N > 5) 4 + (N - 4)2


Tricks help playing the game longer. A trick turns a semi-scoring formation (i.e. a formation that looks like a scoring formation except for a single gem of a different type) into a scoring formation by altering color of the blocking gem. All it takes is a right-mouse click on the blocking gem. Tricks are awarded every 50 points. You can use the tricks to save the situation even at the end of the game when the entire board is full.

Game Setup

Starting with version 3.00 the game board is configurable and you can change the board size from small (5x5) to large (15x15).

Also, you can control how many different gem types will be used in a game (3 to 12), and how many gems are added with each turn (1 to 7).

Lastly, you can specify your own line size too ranging from 3 to 10 gems. In other words you can tailor the game to your experience level. All the rules discussed above still apply.


Unless playing in 'Hard' mode you can undo any move that did not result in scoring formation / bonus or the end of the game.
