I'm on level 180-something in Candy Crush Saga (it's an improved version of Bejeweled, if you haven't played it). Is there anyone here who doesn't mind being barraged with requests to unlock future levels (of course, I will reciprocate)? I hate asking people. But I'm not thrilled about giving FB my credit card information, either.

You can send me requests. I already get barraged with requests from other people, more from you aren't going to bother me. Plus, when I occasionally need tickets I need people to bug.

Now stuck at 215 station. 208 took about 10 tries. It's funny to read all the internet grousing about it.

You are some kind of candy crush jedi. I need to give you my facebook password so you can play my game and get me a higher level than my wife.

Sure. I can be trusted.

Game is fairly simple, of course, though requires some strategy and a fair amount of luck (especially on certain levels). Plus it helps to have a few devices and willingness to bend time in order to regenerate more lives.

260 and begging again.

How did you get passed 197? I've been stuck there for days! :(

Yes, it sucked - I think it took 10-15 tries, including a try where I'd had one jelly left for 12 moves that I could not lose. Obviously you start the bomb chain first, then you try to clear the top corners of the jelly while looking for combos. No real rocket science - you will need luck. (The time I cleared it, I had over 10 moves to spare and got three stars. Sometimes it just happens.)

Through 275 now. There were a couple in the last set I finished on the last move, and wasn't terribly convinced by my strategery. (I'm glad I don't have to redo them, though.)

BTW, it's funny reading other people's complaints about levels; this link on 275:

Meh. Took me two games to learn the essential strategy, and three more to beat it. Yes, some luck was required. But come on, everyone.

Past 305 now. That level sucked. So did 298, to a lesser extent.

Good lord, JJ. Are you going for 3 stars on all of these? I'm at 104, with all 103 preceding at 3 stars each.

No, I'm ignoring three stars requirements (I think I got them on the first fifty or so). There are some where it's damn near impossible.

Current aim is to complete every level. Then to win every trophy among peers. Then to three star everything.

Through 320. Another set of levels where I wasn't terribly stuck, but wasn't completely convinced by my performance.

335 now. Got 43/45 stars on my finished rounds that last 15. Seems like when they allow you to survive, you score well.

Am not looking forward to trying to redo 325 (got just 2 stars on that).

It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

Which one was that? I remember some things there being annoying, but nothing too impossible.

147 seems to be the first major stumbling block. I've got half a dozen "friends" that are hung up there.

365 and begging. There were a couple rough ones in the last fifteen (364 maybe? - not sure which was the worst).

380. Last 15 was manageable. Maybe one or two sucked.

I'm on 109 or 110. I get stuck on beating the level at all, then get the win with 2-3 stars. It's difficult to move forward to new levels when I've kept the 3 star trail behind me.

Understood. I think there are some at the higher levels that are near impossible to get 3 stars on, but of course I could be wrong.

I'm now at 395 and begging again. Only 75 left (until they add more). There were a few tough ones in the last fifteen, but I seemed to get through them fairly quickly (luck played its usual role).
