  • General strategy for what to do first at the BEGINNING and MIDDLE of the game is to CHOOSE THE MOVE THAT CAUSES THE MOST TOTAL DESTRUCTION ON THE PLAYING GRID. If you have a Color Bomb or Coloring Candy try to combine it with: another CB or CC a Wrapped Candy a Striped Candy a Fish if none of those are next to the CB or…
  • @DieOmimi Sorry for delay! I believe my King ID number is 10439511665 based on the number used for being the team leader on my DDS team
  • After many attempts to solve Level 10 of Wild West Splash, this strategy worked for us: (1) Try to solve first screen with 1 or at most 2 moves by setting off the top wrapped Candies as quickly as possible. This may require using many lives until you grt a starting configuration where you can do that! (2) On the second…
  • @DieOmimi Please let me know if the very last screenshot in this post qualifies me for the LIMBO badge. If it does, I would appreciate the badge very much. @fabke You asked me and the others for advice, so I thought I would try the strategy proposed by @bearwithme , which is to get very close to winning with a low score,…
  • I am having trouble posting my screenshot of Olivia , but will try again today:

  • @Lola_Pop Ok, here are my screenshots of the middle levels as I have not completed the basic 10 Oliver levels yet: Could you please put me the drawing for the gold bars? I suspect they could be useful in some future levels! Cheers!
  • @DieOmimi I think that having the team leader be able to switch a Team Task for a different one is good as our teams have different strengths and weaknesses. A good team leader would learn which tasks were most difficult for their team and then swap that one out if they see it in a new Delivery. Your idea of posting what…
  • I also usually try the #1 recommended character first, and depending on how close to success I came, switch to the #2 recommended character next, and finally if both #1 and #2 have been utter failures, I’ll try character #3 (which will change over time). The design team has said that the #1 recommended character seemed…
  • @DieOmimi Well, you raise some valid problems with the implementation [email protected] ’s idea of a “task-switch” option for DDS. I thought of having the system check whether any DDS team member was currently listed as working on a Team Task prior to deleting it as that is a fairly simple check of the Team Task roster. But the…
  • Well, the “Sunny Tales” event ended for me with a set of 3 Super-Hard type levels freeing octopuses with Tifi. The third and final day seemed particularly difficult even though I had completed my Daily Quests and had the Friendly Charge and Friendly Coloring Candy boosters. I still had to watch the ad video for +4 moves at…
  • @Grumpy_Old_Man You may well be right, but your help already allowed us to fully complete 10 deliveries, and that was a first! So you can be proud of that! I spent the first part of the last day creating the necessary 20 “Color Bomb + Wrapped Candy” combinations, and the rest of the day passing levels to finish the final…
  • Our “Uncle Bob” team of 20 completed 10 Dachs Delivery Service “deliveries” from July 16-25 , which was unusually high. The team members increased their levels in CCFS from a total of 33,866 to 35,071, for a gain of 1,205 levels, or an average of about 60 levels increase per team member. For the previous DDS session from…
  • Team “Uncle Bob” had a very successful session of Dachs Delivery Service (June 16-25, 2021) in my view, completing 10 Deliveries: Why were we more successful during this session? I think we had new team members including @Grumpy_Old_Man and a new member I will simply call “Player P”, who balanced out our team to be more…
  • One responsibility of a Team Leader to to show appreciation to team members who have played well and contributed to the team’s success. Our team did better by far on this iteration of Dachs Delivery Service than for any previous session: I would like to thank them one and all, but I have no way to directly communicate…
  • @AkumaXX I agree with you that something is odd in the Brach Race. My Partner’s group for Beach Race had the leader with 3,000 shells and two other people with 1,000 shells. I think it is very unlikely to get exact thousands of shells collected! We are currently ignoring the Beach Race, on my part because it is a Zero-Sum…
  • @me6412 I am completely mystified why you are being shut out of the ad video offers because I and my partner are both residing on East Coast America and we have usually had them except for a couple 1-month gaps when they disappeared for both of us. But you really have my sympathy, because there are some levels that are…
  • To collect data on the “combine Color Bomb + Color Bomb “ strategy, I took screenshot just before and just after combining a Color Bomb with an adjacent Color Bomb: Before: After: The best cells for judging the CB+CB effects are the isolated cells in the central column as they have no direct connection to the cells on…
  • Wait a minute! You mean only players on IPad s(like me and my partner) and maybe Android tablets get those add offers, but NOT players on PCs with Win10?? Is that the situation? We have a PC with Windows 10 and even a touch screen, but we just never have tried playing CCFS on it because playing with the iPad sitting on my…
  • @Kate3A Thank you! It is probably just a byproduct of being at home during the pandemic and playing a LOT of CCFS to relax. Did you get also get about 2 weeks of “Unlimited Lives” last Summer? They put a small “infinity “ symbol up in the lives place, and we could just play and play and play, which was a huge waste of time…
  • I was hoping for an “Outer Space Olivia” costume with a air helmet and Olivia shooting space lasers to free the octopuses! Zap! Zap! Zap! Just like in Star Wars! Oh well, maybe next time. Sigh.
  • @AkumaXX I failed on my first attempt today, but the second attempt went much better: I saved some of the earlier levels from this week to complete them when I needed the 30-minute boosters, and that has worked well for me so far. Cheers!
  • I’ve been concentrating on Dachs Delivery Service this week, and decided to save the easier levels of Sunny Tales with Rachel this week in case I needed those 30-minute boosters to advance some levels. That has worked well, and today I completed Day 19 on my second attempt with 6 moves to spare: But is anyone else saving…
  • I would be remiss if I did not mention that both I and my partner have encountered some hilarious “topsy-turvy” situations during DDS, where we have to completely reverse our normal “play-to-win” strategy and strongly try to “play-to-lose”! In particular, when we find a good level for the Team Tasks of “Combine Color Bomb…
  • Well, thanks to @Grumpy_Old_Man and efforts of my fellow team members, team “ Uncle Bob” has burned through 8 deliveries so far in this session(July 16-25, 2021) of Dachs Delivery Service. Congratulations, team! This is the best that Team “Uncle Bob” has ever done over all the itereatiins of Dachs Delivery Service , and I…
  • @ellectra I agree with your basic point. But @Grumpy_Old_Man is correct that the relative difficulty of each task varies on the level that each player is playing at. I wish we could communicate with other team members because we could then discuss who can do which Team Task the best. Grumpy can do stars very efficiently,…
  • I have discussed the automatic deletion of team members for Dachs Delivery Service elsewhere, but pertinent to this thread: Should a DDS Team Leader remove (“kick out”) team members who have not progressed any levels for the last 2 months (roughly 3 sessions o DDS)? Is that formally one of the Team Leader’s duties? So far,…
  • Well, the first 2 days of Week 3 of Sunny Tales with Rachel didn’t seem too hard, so I “saved” them for when I would need some 30-minute “Friendly Charge” and “Friendly Coloring Candy” boosters. I was having trouble getting going today ,so I completed Level 15 (Day 1 of Rachel), and using those boosters I managed to…
  • I did complete 4440 to help satisfy the “3 Super Hard Levels” Team Task for Delivery #5, and have been using 4442 to make Color Bombs, Coloring Candies , Fish, Wrapped Candies , and other things for the team over the last day as it is a rare level that only has 3 candy colors:
  • Well, I scraped by Day 12 with a +4 ad video at the end, but starting with that booster, Day 13 with Nutcracker went much better!
