Welcome to the pond, gibsondianne

I'd have to start up a new game to give a detailed strategy, but I have found that a good general strategy for any of the later boards is to work on keeping the powerups on the bottom charged up as often as possible. Use the powerups as soon as you get them fully charged, and then work on recharging them again. You can get away with the second level (silver) hammer on most of the boards, but having the gold army and gold hourglass are really helpful, if not essential, by this point in the game.

If it is a board where you have to collect a target tile like treasure chests or pirates, save the lightning for that tile when there are a lot of them on the board and the timer is running low. If the treasure chests are chained, break most of the chains first before using the lightning. Hope that helps.

Here's a more detailed strategy. Hopefully you have the gold hourglass, army, and hammer at this point. Focus on the middle of the board and try to break the chains on the top of the columns as soon as possible. Match whatever else is around to get the powerups charged and clear some of the soldiers. Use the hammer to break the chains going down the columns, making sure that you focus on spaces that have a tile in them (empty chains will not break). Any time the army or hourglass is charged, use them.

Pay attention to pairs lining up in the columns because most of the chains have to be broken by matching over them or using the army and hammer, until the tiles reach the very bottom. If there aren't any matches in the columns at the moment, go back to matching mostly in the top center to reshuffle the tiles and get the powerups charged, etc. Use the lightning on the soldiers if needed, and save the ships/cannonballs for the bottom-most row with the story tile in case you need to rearrange the tiles to get the right setup there. Hope that helps!
