Blindfold tile game, color crush and solitair

iOS & iPadOS Gaming

I think these games might have a pod cast for those who either have never played games like this, and would like to. Because I know I would and I never have played games like these.

Blindfold Solitaire has a podcast about it, but there been several additions to the game since the podcast was recorded. Because there are many different varieties of Solitaire, you may find many of the instructions available on the Internet helpful. The Internet also has lots of useful strategies for the games in Tile Puzzle. I would also like to see a podcast for Color Crush because I am not very good at the game, and I would like to improve.

That's the easiest one within the tile puzzles. It's actually my favourite one of the set. I'm useless at 2048, well I understand it but you get lazy sometimes and make the wrong mov. Either way, Game of threes is still my favourite of the tile puzzles.

You're not alone. I was really looking forward to playing Threes after having some limited success playing the original Threes on my iPad. But I can't figure out how to play the Blindfold version of it

In the UK this is called patience and I have to say I need a heavy dose of it. I just canno seem to figure out how to play this game and I have looked on the net for instructions. I'm not stupid but really? I'd love to be able to get the hang of this game before I use my 8 coins up to find out whether or not I want to actually buy it.

I love this game. i find it a massive help to have the sound on that tells you when you are on a gem that you can flip. I don't think I could play this otherwise. If you haven't enabled this sound maybe that will help you improve.

Color Crush makes no logical sense to me. Like you think you would swop matching colors near each other but with the sound on you find that isn't true. Just flicking around though and selecting the 2 that make noise doesn't really appeal to me either. Maybe I just don't get it.

I feel a little like that about the tile game. :-) The colours are always near each other, it's just that sometimes you could be finishing off a row that goes to your left, right or above or below where you might think.

Neither of these games make sense to me. I've read the user guides for both of these games multiple times, but I'm still confused by them.

Okay. Well, as far as the tile puzzle goes, I'm with you. I had a go at it yesterday and while I sort of understand it, it did nothing for me. Colour Crush, on the other hand, I love. The point of it is to clear all the board of as many matching gems as you can. They have to be in at least rows of three and you achieve this by flipping gems that sit next to one another to form at least a row of three. I do find it quite addictive. I hope I'm not already stating the obvious :-)

There's something on YouTube about Blindfold Color Crush. It's a short video with lots of talk, done by a blind player.
I play this game a lot, and bought most of the gem packs. Not a sports fan so I didn't get those.
But I love this game and this developer. Do you know he asked for suggestions, and I suggested a few gem pack ideas, and a few days later, they were there?
I'm not sure I have the hang of it yet. I only know you have to move the gems around to get matches.
I'm getting good at it without knowing quite why.
I know you can only move within columns, between clumns, but not diagonally.
Anyway, there's a YouTube podcast on Blindfold Color Crush, and it also has a help file.
I started in the beginner level, and am having too much fun there.
Are you in the beginner level?
Also, someone asked about using gem packs once purchased. I had no trouble using the ones I purchased.
Where does one get all the information, I wonder, to create the gem packs?
I thought I knew my royalty well, but when I bought the gem packs of royal titles, I found a lot of titles I'd never heard of before.

Greetings from a fellow addict.
I'm not exactly sure what you mean by 'flip', unless you mean 'switch'. There is a YouTube cast of someone playing this game. I'm not sure I have any logical ideas. I just keep trying to switch a gem from column 1 into column 2 or 3 and vice versa.
By the way, what is that whistling sound? I know the ting-ting when you get a match, and the noise when you get two you can't swap. But there's a third sound, like something out of a cartoon, like a whistle.
Does that mean you're on a gem you can flip?
