Welcome to a new world. An ancient world. A world where the standard game is Columns, a game of strategy and quick thinking. Welcome to the world of Phoenicia, where Columns originated among the merchant class.
Columns is a game of strategy and quick thinking, where you must line the blocks up to get them to disappear from the play field. The more difficult the combinations, the more points are scored. You start with three jewels, and using the butttons, you switch the jewels places and thereby try to line up three or more. When you line up three, either horizontially, vertically, or diagonally, they diasppear from the play field, thereby alowing a little more room to negotiate the jewels that keep falling. ~ Chris Cuson, All Game Guide
