As detailed a couple of weeks back, The The XBLA House Party promotion continues with:

Bejeweled Blitz LIVE - 800 MSP
Challenge your friends in heart-pounding gem-matching action. You have one minute to match and detonate as many gems as you can. Choose your favorite playing style — Classic or Twist — and rocket up the leaderboards.

Battle your way to the top in the all-new 16-player Party mode over Xbox LIVE. Conquer the boards as you compete for score, style and speed. Create cascades of fun with Flame gems, Lightning gems and Hypercubes. You can even combine scores with friends for the highest weekly and all-time Friendscores!

Play 4 ways: Hone your skills in Single Player, take on friends via Battle LIVE or Local, or compete in a 16-player Party.
Choose your style: Swap gems in Classic or rotate in Twist.
Unlock 12 achievements: Earn bragging rights for your gem-matching skills.
Real-time leaderboards: Track your progress to the top!

Another game cropped up on the Marketplace yesterday, this was:

Days of Thunder Arcade - 800 MSP
Days of Thunder: Arcade is a high adrenaline Stock car arcade racer. Coached by Rowdy Burns himself you can relive the intensity of the film while you race to the top of the leader boards. Watch out for Cole trickle and Russ Wheeler though! Race on Oval and road tracks to prove that you've got what it takes.
