Candy Crush Strategies: Getting Close to the 100K Mark

So, I’ve been officially playing Candy Crush every day for the past week.

It’s an addictive game, but I’m getting a handle on it.

And I’m getting close to my personal goal of 100,000 points!

So, here are the screenshots of my two 90,000+ scores in the tournament edition of Candy Crush.

Note: I surpassed my previous record of 88,520 points.

Basic Strategies

1. It’s best to start at the bottom of the board by matching 3 candies in a row. And this will have a trickle down effect as more candies fall into various positions that might create “special candies”.

2. Work your way from the bottom of the board to the top, scanning for possible patterns that will get your more of those special candies.

3. Figure out ways in which to eliminate candies (by matching 3 in a row) so that special candies line up next to each other, or one on top of the other. Then you can match these to get a “super candy” that will give you even more points.

4. I’m still trying to perfect the strategy of bringing “special candies” together to create the “super candy”, and be able to do this quickly so that “I don’t eat up the clock”.
