High score moments

High score moments

I've recently found that I tend to set high scores in the most unlikely of situations. This is especially true when I'm playing games on the go - particularly on my iPhone.

This weekend I went to Barcelona for a bit of a respite from the dreadful weather up here in the north and a break from the day to day work schedule. I wound up breaking my Fruit Ninja Puss in Boots (licensed games can be good, you know) record, while my girlfriend was trying to get me to answer her questions and I spent 28 (!) minutes in Bejeweled 2's Action mode setting a record while guarding bags at the airport. That record more than doubled my previous high score, by the way. I hadn't played the mode for almost a year, and obviously my addiction to Bejeweled 3 was paying off as my skill when it comes to matching three blocks of the same colour are at an all-time high.

I guess beating high scores is all about getting into that zone - that place where you're really focused on just one thing, and in my case that's often when I'm supposed to pay attention to something else. Perhaps, I'm not alone in this. When do you set your best high scores?
