Helpful Game Tips for Some of the Hardest Games at PCHGames
“I don’t want to play anymore!” Sound like a familiar childhood refrain?
Remember the days when there was always someone way bigger than you, or someone much older than you, always showing you up on the playground? Maybe it was during school recess, or out on the street in the neighborhood. No matter how hard you tried or how much you practiced they were just unbeatable!
Were you done playing and just wanted to go home? Or did you practice, practice, practice until you got your winning moment at last?
It’s the same thing with gaming at PCHGames. Sometimes you just want to throw up your hands and say “Game Over”!
Well don’t give up just yet! About two weeks ago we asked you all to let us know which games were the most challenging for you , so we could help with some pointers. Thanks for your feedback! We listened and we’re here to help.
As a newbie to Monkey Gems I feel your pain! When the monkey and me don’t have our game on, I wish I could throw a coconut at HIS head instead of at the snake!!! LOL.
But I jest. It’s all about having fun, right? Here are a few invaluable tips from our own resident gamer Greg L. that I thought would be helpful.
1) Try to make combo shots. If you can clear a few gems between matching gems, you can get the whole snake to back up.
2) Work quickly to match 3 with special gems. They don’t hold their special powers for very long and may go back to being regular gems.
3) If you’re holding a gem that doesn’t match the snakes, throw it away! You can get rid of gems by throwing them anywhere but the direction of the snake!
1) Use the left & right arrow keys to spin the puzzle. This will save you the time it takes to drag your mouse to the arrows in the corner of the game.
2) Try your best to match 2 identical sets one after another. This will give you an additional bonus. It even stacks with the speed bonus for making any 2 matches in a row!
3) I like to assign names to the pieces. This just helps me keep track of which free matches I have available.
1) Try to build up a pile before adding more cards — usually your best bet on your first turn. You have the most amount of available moves at that point and no blockers.
2) Work on clearing a pile as quickly as possible. In the example below, you’d want to move the Jack on the left before the Jack on the right, since you can’t play kings on anything but the table. (Keep in mind you need to move a card to an empty pile to add more cards!)
I sure hope this was helpful. Please don’t get discouraged! Just keep playing and remember to HAVE FUN. No matter what, you’ll be earning tokens and plenty of chances to win great prizes!
P.S. We’ll be back in a few weeks with helpful game tips on some of the other games you told us were hard! If you have any others you’d like us to talk about in our next blog, comment below and let us know.
