Introduction:
Bejeweled Live is a great casual game that most people should already know from the XBLA games for the Xbox 360. The goal in the game is to match three or more gems to create cascades and special gems for extra points. The Windows 8 version offers three game modes and every game mode has some achievements tied to it. Propably 11 of 12 achievements will be unlocked before you reach rank 6 of 81. If the user TerreDactyl didn't share his method to cut the playtime down to around 5 hours it'd be a very long grind for the full 200.

Abbreviated Walkthrough:

Step #1 - Classic Mode
Classic mode is the only mode where it is possible to run out of matches. The best way to "survive" is to either work on the second half of the board or from the left to the right side (or the other way around). I prefer to work my way up from the bottom because you constantly get new gems from above. The board will get mixed after each completed level but you will keep your special gems.
Tip: Don't waste your hypercubes as soon as you get them. Instead save them for emergencies. Take your time and don't rush it. Look for possible cascades and don't be afraid to use the hint button because you won't get a penalty in this version of the game.

Step #2 - Butterflies
The goal in this mode is to save as many butterflies as possible before the spider at the top of the screen eats them. The butterflies move one row up after every move you make. They start to shake to warn you as soon as they are near the top. To save one or more butterflies you have to match them with gems or butterflies of the same color or detonate them with special gems (this will free them instead of blowing them up).
Tip: Look out for cascades and special gems to save multiple butterflies at once.

Step #3 - Diamond Mine
In this mode you have to dig out gold and various treasures before the time runs out to get points. Matching gems will NOT get you any points! Clearing the marked area let you proceed and gives you a 30 second time bonus. You have to match gems at the bottom of the screen (where the dirt is) in order to collect the treasures. Later you will see lava flows which can only be destroyed by matching special gems. Ordinary rocks need two or more matches to be destroyed.
Tip: Detonate the special gems at the bottom of the screen if possible to advance faster and cumulate more time. Matching two hypercubes gives you a 90 second time bonus!

Mop Up:
The last achievement is Jewelforger. After getting the other 11 achievements you will probably be at rank 5/81. The remaining time can be reduced to less than 5 instead of way more than 100 hours if you use the TerreDactyl-method!

How it's done:
1. Play Diamond Mine (Classic is fine too) and get a score of around 1 million or more (the higher the better) and exit the game to the main menu with 1 or 2 seconds left on the timer (or one move if you play Classic).
2. Go to the folder C:/users/[yourusernamehere]/Appdata/local/packages/PopCap.BejweledLIVE_dw446q17t8sdy/local state and leave it open.
3. Copy "diamond_mine.sav" ("classic.sav" if you play Classic) to the desktop.
4. Switch back to the game and let the timer run out.
5. Collect your points and quit to the main menu.
6. Switch back to the desktop (Windows + D) and copy "diamond_mine.sav" ("classic.sav" if you play Classic) back to the folder C:/users/[yourusernamehere]/Appdata/local/packages/PopCap.BejweledLIVE_dw446q17t8sdy/local state.
7. Return to the game and resume your Diamond Mine (or Classic) game.
8. Repeat from step 4 until you reach Rank 81.

Although this method is NOT considered cheating, I am NOT responsible for any damage that may be caused by using this method or messing around with files. You do it at your own risk and you should know what you do before using the TerreDactyl-method!

Conclusion:
The game is highly addicting at first but gets pretty boring after a while and the grind would be unnecessary long without the trick.

[x360a would like to thank VonThronstahl for this Roadmap]



Chroma-Collector10
All the colors, so bright and pretty! I got 20 of them to unlock Chroma-Collector! 

You have to match up 20 gems of each color (red, blue, orange, green, white, yellow and purple) in Classic mode. This will propably the second achievement you get after Friendly Fire.

Friendly Fire5
I unlocked the Friendly Fire Achievement — watch out Flame gems! 

Matching 4 gems of the same color creates a flame gem which will explode after being matched with two or more gems of the same color.

Butterfly Bonanza5
Who needs a net to collect butterflies? Ask me, I just collected 5 at once! 

You will need to create a cascade and/or match special gems to save five butterflies at once. The game starts with a handful of butterflies but they'll appear more frequent after saving a around 20.

Master Blaster5
I destroyed 50 gems in a single move and earned the Master Blaster Achievement! 

The easiest way to destroy 50 gems at once is by matching two hypercubes which will clear the whole board (64 gems). The other way is creating a huge cascade which is completely luck based. Easiest done in classic mode.

Butterfly Monarch10
I took on the spiders in Butterflies mode and earned a score of 250,000! 

I had to save around 90 butterflies to get the needed amount of 250,000 points. Cascades and special gems are the best way to save butterflies. Look out for possibilities to save multiple butterflies at once.

Butterfly Guardian10
Phew! Saving 70 butterflies is challenging, but at least the spiders will go hungry tonight! 

Cascades and special gems are the best way to save butterflies. Look out for possibilities to save multiple butterflies at once because more and more butterflies appear after each move.

Diamond Miner15
I dug so far down in Diamond Mine mode, I think I saw a dinosaur! 

The counter on the bottom left of the screen shows how deep you dug. You need to dig 200 metres deep to get the achievement. Clearing the earth above the line let's you proceed and dig deeper. Match special gems at the bottom of the screen to quickly get rid of the most earth.

Levelord 15
I'm a Levelord - I reached Level 10 in Classic Mode! 

It is possible to run out of matches in Classic mode! Look out for ways to create special gems and hypercubes. They can save your live! Save them for emergencies instead of wasting them. The board will get mixed after each completed level but you will keep your special gems. My strategy is to work my way up from the bottom because you will always get new gems at the top. Another way is to start either on the right or left side. It is not good to match random gems without thinking. Use the hint button if you get stuck and take your time. You can't run out of time in this mode so take it easy. You can always use the TerreDactyl-method if you can't do it legit which will make this achievement a cakewalk! Quit to the main menu after each level and copy the save file ("C:/users/[yourusernamehere]/Appdata/local/packages/PopCap.BejweledLIVE_dw446q17t8sdy/local state/classic.sav") to the desktop and try other matches if you fail.

Bejeweler 20
Wow, I just scored over 300,000 in Classic Mode! 

The description of the achievement is WRONG! You have to get 500.000 points in classic mode to unlock this achievement! You need to get to level 12 or 13 to reach the needed points. You can always use the TerreDactyl-method if you can't do it legit which will make this achievement a cakewalk! Quit to the main menu after each level and copy the save file ("C:/users/[yourusernamehere]/Appdata/local/packages/PopCap.BejweledLIVE_dw446q17t8sdy/localstate/classic.sav") to the desktop and try other matches if you fail.

Miner, Extraordinaire30
Ka-Ching! I mined this mode and earned $750,000 in the process! (1) 

You have to earn $750,000 in one game! Create special gems and match them at the bottom of the screen to destroy the earth and rocks. You proceed by clearing the area above the line. Every time you move on you get a 30 second time bonus. If you are able to match 2 hypercubes you will get a 90 second time bonus! Use this to your advantage!

Superstar 35
They said it couldn't be done! 6 gems in a row! 

This achievment is luck based! Playing Diamond Mine is the easiest way to create a supernova gem because it is the fastest mode and has the most special gems per minute. You can try to line up gems and hope to get the right match to drop them but it is way faster and easier to just play a few rounds of Diamond Mine without paying attention to supernova gems. Create cascades and huge explosions to clear the bigger part of the screen and you'll create a supernova gem if you are lucky. It took me a handful of games before I got lucky and created a supernova gem. Lining up 6 gems in a L-form does NOT create a supernova gem (it creates a star and a flame gem) - they have to be right next to each other in a straight line!

Jewelforger 40
I'm a master of matching! I just earned 40G and now hold the rank of Jewelforger in Bejeweled Live.  

The legit way to get rank 81 will take way more than 100 hours! I was able to get around $1,000,000 in Diamond Mine in a little less than 15 minutes. But you need more than 15-20 million to advance to the next rank on higher ranks.
