  • Dachs Delivery Service team “Monikas” is looking for new team members right now! Please let me know if you have any trouble joining team “Monikas” and I will tell her that you’re trying to join! Her team has completed DDS Delivery #1 and is currently working on Delivery #2, so she wouldn’t appreciate your help! Cheers!
  • Like @Spinnifix and @ipete , I have never bought anything and have been at or near the last level of CCFS since that last level was Level 3000 over a year ago. However, unlike @ipete I actually enjoy almost all the ad videos, with the exception of the videos where a “talking head” just drones on for 30-60 seconds about how…
  • @Tzvi_Marcu I will try to explain: I think you are being offered a special event called “Dachs Delivery Service”. A team for DDS consists of a maximum of 20 Candy Crush Friends Saga players who try to complete 6 Team Tasks, which is called a “Delivery”. When the team completes 2 out of the 6 Team Tasks, and again when the…
  • So my Dachs Delivery Service team has completed 5 Team Tasks for Delivery #2 and is currently working on the final task of “getting 150 mew stars”, which is one of the most difficult Team Tasks as if requires successfully completing about 60 levels. As you can see, I am at the Super Hard level 4440 right before the “rabbit…
  • Two curious facts about the automatic deletion and assignment of players to Dachs Delivery Service teams: 1, Before the new session of DDS began on Friday, July 16, 2021, the new team member assigned to replace Team Member “Z” in the post above, who I will designate as “W”, was removed and replaced with yet another member…
  • @JoeyG First, Thank You for laying out exactly what folks are being faced with in such detail, as I did not know what choices (or lack of choices!) my team members had, and now I do. I understand your frustration with it, but being forced to press the “Let’s go!” button is the same lack-of-choice procedure used for all of…
  • @AkumaXX Good for you! I hope you enjoy this session of Dachs Delivery Service and that you get some nice rewards for your participation! I am focusing on helping my team (“Uncle Bob”) complete Team Tasks, and to do that I usually have to shift around which Team Task best fits the “new level” that I am currently working…
  • @JoeyG I agree with @ElenaVorona that I believe you can just ignore the team even if the operating system forces you to choose one, or if it automatically places you on a Dachs Delivery Service team, as apparently happened with one of my team members. But DDS seems constructed like many of the “Special Events” in CCSF,…
  • One key part of CCFS strategy is exactly how to use Color Bombs and Coloring Candies. I think the weakest use of a CB or CC is to simply combine it with a plain “target” candy beside it. CBs will simply destroy all candies of that color, while CCs will simply change all candies of that color with the color of the CC. A…
  • Day 11 felt a LOT easier to me than day 10 did! In any case I did not have any boosters and finished with 3 moves to spare: Good luck tomorrow! Dachs Delivery Service is supposed to re-start tomorrow. Are you leading a team or on a team for that?
  • I succeeded on my first try at the Day 11 of Sunny Tales (Week 2, Day 4 with Nutcracker) without having any boosters or using any lollipop hammers. Since I still had 3 moves left after dunking the 3 cookies, I would consider this a success. Note to other players: I was surprised at how the cookies slid around some of the…
  • Another example of the Suggested Move Algorithm ignoring the potential destructive power of the Coloring Candy combined with a wrapped candy: And a case where the Suggested Move was a very weak “combine Red an Yellow Fish, which would have just created 3 non-jam Fish, compared to moving the Red Striped candy up onto the…
  • @AkumaXX I think you win today! My partner failed on all 3 attempts. I succeeded on my first attempt, BUT I had a Friendly Charge booster and still had to use 2 Lollipop Hammers and watch the ad video for +4 moves at the end. So I was either unlucky, I played poorly, or Level 9 was quite difficult! Cheers!
  • How are all of you doing on Level 10 of Sunny Tales? We found Level 10 to be quite difficult. My partner failed in her 3 attempts today. Although I (barely) completed Level 10 on my first attempt, I had a Friendly Charge booster, I used 1 plain and 1 striped Lollipop Hammers during the game, AND I still had to watch the ad…
  • If my records are correct, my data indicate that the automatic deletion of Dachs Delivery Service team members is probably being done based on activity in TRYING to progress in CCFS rather than actual progress in CCFS levels: On my team, Team Members X and Y were at the same CCFS level from May 7 to June 28, and Team…
  • Well, Day 9 of Sunny Tales with Nutcracker was more difficult for me: I could not complete it with the normal number of moves and had to watch the ad video for +4 moves and use 3 of those moves to successfully complete it. My partner finished Level 9 without using extra moves and she thought it was relatively easy, so…
  • @Brigdeez This site has a mail system, but you have to first make a few posts or comments to be able to use it. Meanwhile, why don’t you just list the 2-4 most pressing questions you have now, and I’ll try to answer them? The reason I started this discussion thread was that I could NOT find any guidance on basic CCFS…
  • @gr33n3y3z , Here are 3 annotated screenshots about Yeti placing the Cyan wrapped candy in some useless place rather than next to a special candy like a fish or a striped candy. These examples happened to me using Yeti this morning on level 4430. yeti did not always malfunction in this way, but it was happening on average…
  • I had good luck on my first attempt at Level 8 with Nutcracker, so after creating a Color Bomb and combining it with a Red Fish to spread the jam, I was able to finish with 9 moves to spare. Cheers, all!
  • I was fortunate today that I saw how to make a Color Bomb and then a fish next to it.… The resulting 11 Red Fish spread the jam well enough that I could finish with 9 moves to spare. Cheers!
  • To make Color Bombs or Colors Candies often requires “looking ahead” for a couple moves to see if the correct pattern for a Color Bomb or Coloring Candy can be created. (The Suggested Move algorithm does not do “look ahead”, so this is one way you can find better moves than the suggested ones.) In this example from Level 8…
  • @DieOmimi I also thank you for this information as knowing when DDS will re-start helps me decide whether to progress or stay in place in the meantime.
  • Next week in Sunny Tales, we will get Rachel the raccoon, so now is the time to practice using Rachel! After matching 12 Green Candies, Rachel throws a rainbow-colored square candy on the grid. You can combine the rainbow candy with any unblocked candy above it, below it, to the left of it, or to the right of it. IF there…
  • @Pitty_Kitty @gr33n3y3z My partner and I have both recall the same Yeti “throw the cyan wrapped candy “ into unusable places rather than next to a fish, striped, or other wrapped candy situation, but I do not have the screenshot to prove it. We concluded that there is a “difficulty parameter” where Yeti throws the wrapped…
  • @Tzvi_Marcu I and my partner have played CCFS for about 3 years (she also plays CCS but I do not). In CCFS, I am waiting at Level 4425 for Dachs Delivery Service to begin again, but she has progressed almost to the end-of-the-road for IOS devices, which is now Level 4460. For Dachs Delivery Service , she leads team…
  • @Grumpy_Old_Man What would you recommend/suggest to help newer players learn to evaluate the grid and find more effective moves? I was thinking of something like: “The algorithm works top-down and stops at the first acceptable match in the playing grid, so you should carefully examine the playing grid from the bottom up to…
  • My partner completed Level 7 of Sunny Tales with 14 moves to spare, but she did have the Friendly Coloring Candy booster. With no boosters, I did still finish Level 7 on my first attempt, but with only 3 moves to spare: @chris64lu I just today got a repeat of the “Beach Race” event but my partner, also playing on an IPad…
  • I have noticed like @Pitty_Kitty that the “suggested move” algorithm does NOT handle Color Bombs or Coloring Candies very well. I captured 2 examples of that this morning. The first was a screen where the Suggested Move was to combine the purple Coloring Candy with a Blue fish, which would have created 13 fish. But…
  • @AkumaXX Thank you for the information! I only have the original “free” Piggy Bank, which is limited to 30 Gold Bars. But what has been happening to me when I win more Gold Bars is that I now have a separate icon that says “+175 Gold Bars” that appears to the right of the Piggy Bank. I accidentally used some Gold Bars…
  • @ElenaVorona and others: Except for that odd 1-day setup and then immediate withdrawal of Dachs Delivery Service sometime in March-April, the starting and ending days for DDS that I have in my records for my team are: February 12-February 21 March 5-March 18 March 26-April 4 April16-April 25 May 7-May 16 May 28-June 6 June…
