China day 49

[Post New]by pnbqueen on Mar 27, 09 6:59 AM
I am unable to get the icons to the middle or either drop down the grid. I've used power-ups but still losing all my lives and having to start China expedition over. Does anyone have the answer to day 49??

I'm also stuck on day 49 of China. I have tried over and over and just run out of time before I can get the pieces traded over to the right or left. I would also love to get a tip on how to get those pieces out of the middle "column of doom" ... please help! (thanks)

I finally got past day 49 by using the power-ups to move the pieces from the bottom allowing the icons to fall. I tried to get matches of 4- 5 to speed up the process. GOOD LUCK

Okay, the first thing you need to do is get the 4 pieces down from the column onto the "main" part of the board. Make some matches under the pieces, and they'll fall down. Now the fun begins:

Look to the right and left of the puzzle pieces (notice they are above the block on the bottom row, which is preventing them from falling out) - try to make 2 same-colors on one side of the piece(s), and the same color on the other side of the piece. Example: 2 red on left, puzzle piece, 1 red on right. You now have a "match three", and can move your puzzle piece off the block on the bottom row. Do this for all the pieces.

I generally use the Single Hammer - it's quick to power up, and will let me drop down that one piece I need for the match 3. Also, it's perfect for releasing a tile on the bottom row, so the puzzle piece falls off the board, which will help with the remaining pieces. Occasionally, I use the Bomb to clear the area. Very rarely do I use Tesla's hammer, and I never use the Fireball.

You will use this same method (2 same-color on one side, 1 same color on the other side) for other puzzles between now and the last day of the journey.

Good Luck!

This level is very frustrating! I actually got through this one but then blew it on the next and had to start China all over again.

Got 5-6 levels into China again and now guess what? I've blown it on this level and restarting China all over again. I wish they allowed you more chances at free lives in this game.

I always seem to get within one piece still needing to be freed before the timer runs out. It takes me 3/4 of the level's time just getting them out of that center column.

Very frustrated with this level. Not enough time!!! Too hard to get over to the sides and then down before time is gone.

Thank you - GmaGale!!!

This was AWESOME advice. It worked the FIRST time I tried it. I had the "2 on the left, 1 on the right part figured out", but I was trying to get the "1" by making matches. Every time I got the one I needed close to where it needed to be, two others of the same kind would show up beside it and RUIN the strategy. Using the hammer to drop the 1 piece down the final row was a LIFE saver (pun intended) LOL THANK YOU!
