Challenges and Ranks: Tips and Tricks
« on: October 07, 2015, 01:21:11 pm »
We have the very awesome Help With Badges/Challenges thread where people can go to ask for help getting their badges, but it’s pretty long and disorganized. In fact, trying to find game specific information about the best way to get ranked out or earn challenge badges in that thread is nearly impossible. With this in mind, I asked Mayhem what he thought about having a thread where people can share with everyone else the settings, levels, and strategies they use for getting their badges, and he agreed that it was a good idea.

So what we’ll do is, as people share their tips, the first post will be updated and listed (by game) to include that information so it’ll always be easy to find.

Here we go!

Bejeweled Stars

For most challenges, focus on creating special gems, but don't use them right away. Eventually, during regular game play, the special gems will be detonated and will then clear away many more gems using fewer moves.  Also, be sure to experiment matching hypercubes with with each other or other special gems, and matching 2 special gems of different or the same kinds for extra impact. Level 2 is a fantastic level to practice on. See The s1lentOne's link below for more information.

Mayhem provided the following information:

Flame Gem: Match 4 Gems in a line or a square.
Flame gems explode when matched, destroying themselves along with all eight surrounding gems.

Star Gem: Match 5 Gems in a T or L shape.
When matched, Star gems destroy all gems along vertical and horizontal lines from their own position.

Hypercube: Match 5 Gems in a row.
You can match Hypercubes to any adjacent gem regardless of color to destroy all gems of that color on the board. This is a great way to detonate other Special Gems or collect SkyGems that are not near any sets of their own color.

Dark Sphere: Match 6 or more Gems in a row.
When you swap a Dark Hypercube, it changes all of the Gems of the swapped color to Hypercubes.

Inky shared that Level 18 is pretty good for butterfly challenges in Bejeweled Stars:  20 butterflies per game which go fairly quickly.

The s1lentOne provided us with some fantastic information for ranking out and LittleFawn points out that it's a great way of earning coins quickly. Click on this link to be taken to his post. https://www.pogocheats.net/forum/index.php/topic,50762.msg674855.html#msg674855


Cookie Connect

Make X number of stars: In a game room they were saying that stars are made when you end a cookie streak diagonally.

Cookie Connect Stars and Arrows or Serve X number of customers Badges Glitch

Step 1:
Play on level 9 but don't win the level - lose on purpose.

Step 2:
When it asks you if you want to buy more moves, click 'no'.

Step 3:
Wait until the next screen pops up and shows your total (x/150) - make a note of what it says and click on "Continue Game".

Step 4:
When it asks you if you want to try again, click the X in the upper right corner.


It will now show you your total screen again and this time will be double. Thanks, Mayhem and CM!

First Class Solitaire Pogo has update FCS so the following may or may not work:

Win x number of games in a row: According to CrazyMan and Disneyland Lady, once you win the first game, if you see the next game (or 2) isn't going to win, just close the window and go back into the same room and play again. You won't lose credit for the games you've won.

Peggle Blast

For challenge objectives such as detonating x number of bombs:

Orange Pegs - Level 4 - 32 orange pegs
Bombs – Level 64 – 6 bombs
Gems – Level 84 – 20 gems
Pinatas – Level 91 – 8 pinatas
Warp Holes – Level 136 – 4 portals
Eggs – Level 171 – 24 eggs
Gnomes – Level 182 – 12 gnomes
Pop Frogs – Level 194 – 14 frogs

To complete multiple objectives try the following levels

Bombs and Gnomes – Level 64 – 5 each
Gems and Pinatas – Level 28 – 5 gems and 2 pinatas
Eggs and Pinatas – Level 81 – 7 each
Spiders and Gems - Level 113 – 2 spiders, 8 gems
Gems and Gnomes - Level 122 - 7 gems, 5 gnomes
Spiders and Warp Holes - Level 129 - 2 spiders, 2 portals
Spiders and Pinatas - Level 130 - 1 spider, 5 pinatas
Frogs and Gnomes - Level 140 - 9 frogs, 3 gnomes
Gnomes and Frogs - Level 151 - 5 gnomes, 3 frogs

Thanks to Squiddly and the The s1lentOne!

Poppit

For challenges requiring you collect/use x number of power-ups: Keep clicking "new game" until you see a board with 1 or 2 stars. Those are the power-up prizes.

Poppit Party 

All challenges and rank advancement: See the bottom of this post for helpful information regarding "wash" times and Power-ups. A HUGE thank you to Squiddly for putting this all together!!!

Sweet Tooth Town

Most challenges: This is another "match 3" game. In this game, like in Bejeweled Stars, you can mix and match the power-up candies, and can even match only 2 of them. For example, you can mix and match by matching a mouth power-up with a striped candy power-up, or stripes with any color cordial candy, etc. This can be a huge help on challenges that require x number of moves to complete.

Zuma's Revenge

Finish a level within the ace time limit x times: If you're playing by hand CrazyMan suggests repeating level 1 over and over, as fast as you can. I found that the PlayBuddy auto was flying through the levels and I wasn't getting credit, so I actually slowed the auto down a notch and easily got credit.
 
Again, this thread is not meant to replace the Help With Badges/Challenges thread! This thread is an information sharing thread only!

Great idea!  I'll be using this thread mucho!

MAHJONG ESCAPE

I did the badge where the objective is to get a bunch of timed levels and China 5 did the trick, winning almost every game.  Hope this helps!

Anyone else as dumb as me and been playing the No-Limit tournaments trying to get jackpot spins for this week's badge? If so, you can play the Limit games and you only need to win 4 hands to get a JPS, not win the tournament.  low blow.gif

I must admit... I started in the No-Limit rooms and soon discovered my error.  I switched over and had the badge fairly quickly.  I'm not sure why the No Limit rooms didn't give credit; I won lots of hands.  Live and Learn.

 Live and Learn.  

Sheesh, I have lived almost 70 decades so I am pretty sure that the learning part better be sooner than later.

You only get credit in the no limit rooms if you win the whole tournament. Otherwise, no JPS.

Any tips on the Monopoly slots badge? Is it just dumb luck? I played for an hour and a half yesterday by hand and didn't get a single landing on Community Chest. *sigh*

I know someone who played for 9 hours and didn't get a single one.  I got one in 5 minutes.  It's all luck of the roll (when you get them).

Choose 1 line instead of all lines. It limits your chances of winning and thus less animations.

That's...disheartening.

So the dice don't have to be on that one winning line, right? Good thinking CM! Thank you!

For today's daily challenge, which is the best Mahjong Escape level to play to get the unlocks?

Edited to add - Britain level 4 has 3 lock combinations and wins easily.
