Tetris Stars: 3 Million

1st (or 2nd day) of playing though the Facebook game Tetris Stars. It's been a long time since I've played any Tetris-related game.

Differences: Digging to reach new levels underground (similar to that of Bejeweled 3's Quest Mode), click to drop pieces as well as use of keyboard, level up related rewards.

Tips: Although keyboard controls are available, they are not recommended for use, but you should at least set mouse control to advanced so you get more control as to where you want your pieces to end up. Also, get powers that break up blocks to cause better cascades.

High Scores: After seeing this forum post about the no. 1 high scores, I realized that my original intention of posting what I thought was a high score, at 1.7 million, was nowhere near close. After many attempts, I finally passed that 3 million goal.

With the introduction of the weekly bonus, the high score was pushed to nearly double that amount.
