That’s about how fast Kim Sacha is — she’s one of the top 10 players in the world. Watch the video and learn how to play Zuma (one of the top Xbox 360 and iPod video games). Oh, and if you’re in the video game business, this is free customer research into the casual gamer market. Hint: those women control a lot of Xbox purchases! Wake up Tom Peters! She has a WordPress blog all about Zuma 360 too.

Oh, and if you want something a bit more geeky, watch Liz Lawley, the social software professor. She has forgotten more about social software than we know. Seriously, if you’re into Web 2.0 and World of Warcraft and all that, she’s done some of the best thinking. Yes, she has a blog too (doesn’t update it enough, we think she’s off in WoW or over in Vox too much), and is an instructor at Rochester Institute of Technology and just finished a stint at Microsoft Research.

  1. Zuma is my curse. I love it, and have played it virtually every day for a year now… but once I reach Stage 4-1, it becomes absolute hell for someone who is color blind. I’ve powered my way up to stage 9 via pure stubbornness, but I’ve given up the dream of getting anywhere near 13.

    So now, I just work at maxing out my score from 1-1 through 3-5, and use the game as a kind of meditative thing… it’s pretty easy to play on autopilot if you really need to think things through.

  3. I agree with the Colorblind player having trouble from 4-1 onwards. I was just getting used to telling the Yellows and Greens apart when suddenly I was faced with (what I was told were) Blues and Purples. I would kick this level’s (and future level’s) to high hell if I could see the difference!
