A History of Matching Tile Games

Jasper Juul from the University of Copenhagen has written a fascinating article on the history of matching tile games. He traces the origins of the genre best exemplified by the likes of Bejeweled, from its humble beginnings 21 years ago with Chain Shot and Tetris all the way to today with games like Luxor, Chuzzle and Meteos.

It's a fairly in depth article, and well researched. If you're a fan of this genre, or video games in general, then check it out here.
