# level 876 is not nice

Posts: 419 Game Expert
congrats to the code tester who beat level 876 in 20 moves
lets do the math for 8 words in 20 moves ... add 2 with an artifact ... 22 moves
let us start with this ... how often is a word done in 1 or 2 moves? ... it is rare

the math:
we get lucky and get 6 words in 12 moves(highly unlikely)
2 words have a missing letter ... 3 moves each to chase down and play the missing letter
now we are at 18 moves
add 2 moves each to complete those words with missing letters ... 22 moves

how often will there be only 2 missing letters is 8 words? ... never???????

I'll have to replay that, as I got walked through like in a "first time you play this kind of level" tutorial with just 1 word to create, probably some artifact of playing with the (not-so-)new phone... will post back.

will you try this in English?

Have already a hard time in Italian

About 10 attempts, I might have done it once but botched a move and killed my chances...

Yeah, by far the hardest of the lot. Needs another 2 moves to be achievable.

Alessandro ... thank you for looking at level 876
what happens next?

Played another dozen attempts, got really close with 3 moves for the 8th word at just 4 letters, but was unlucky and only gathered two out of four

@QueenMia , 876 should be reviewed by the Studio to consider adding a couple moves or making it 7 words instead of 8?

Thanks @abe_coffee for playing patiently and keeping it nice!

(back to try 876 in its current form in the meantime...)

thanks for your interest Alessandro

upon further review ... 2 more moves would be nice and/or 7 words
... but ... the math was based on getting 6 words in 12 tries
... there are no 3 letter mystery words thus it is unlikely to get a word in one move
... typically it takes 3 moves(at best) to complete the longer mystery words
... on top of that we have crown and trap behavior
... a crown does not always yield a gold tile
... traps tend to hide new gold tiles way too often
... new gold tiles are often unplayable
... based on all factors:
... 3 * 8 = 24 moves
... add 2 moves for trap and crown behavior 24 + 2 = 26
... which would be 6 more moves
... up to now no player in our group has made more than 6 words

You guys are right. 876 is impossible without a couple more moves. Hello, King. Happy New Year!

Just to brag that I finally beat 876 in its current form, no boosters used

Good Job Alessandro! Too many traps(that often move to cover the coveted final letter of a word), too few moves, too little space,crappy letter combinations, a missing letter that often takes 3 turns,and those pesky exclamators(mostly unreachable/unplayable), have driven me to a state of hopelessness....(sigh)

congrats Alessandro. It is too bad you do not play in English. Level 225 was a very
difficult level when it first came out. There was a utube video of 225 in Spanish
where 225 was beaten soundly. It appears that the suffixes in Spanish allowed for
longer words with what would be lousy letters in English. I cannot say that doing
it in Italian makes it easier, but your test results only show what can be done in Italian.
Level 876 needs to be tested in English on a PC. You seem to be a very skilled player
based on other levels you have beaten and reported here in the community.
If you have time, could you try 876 in English(as requested above)?

Level 876 needs to be tested in English on a PC. There is no doubt that someone will beat 876 in English, however that does not make this level fair.

it is possible to get 7 words on this level.
it is still difficult, but possible.
it may take 50 tries(not counting the quit button) to get 7 words.
changing to 7 words would be better than adding 2 moves.
changing to 7 words and adding moves would be nice.

Wow, Alessandro. And that is why you are a Superstar!

@abe_coffee : English isn't my native language so for these hard levels I have little chance - tried, but best I could do in 20 attempts was a mere 6 words (on the last move)...

@IEEEgal : thank you! though being a superstar is more due to helping out others than being an expert

Ok so I tried a bit more in English and I came THIS close to complete it  - just a bit more luck and...

I guess native speakers may ultimately do it
