Impossible to pass Hole 293

[Post New]by lmishaga on Feb 2, 17 5:52 AM
I need HELP learning how to pass hole 293 as it seems impossible to do no matter how many times I've tried or how creative I've been. The directions say to play 8 face cards in a row and so far, after trying to pass this hole numerous times, I've learned there aren't even 8 face cards at one hole which makes it impossible to do. There absolutely needs to be more face cards or change the directions to play 4 or 5 face cards instead of 8 if you want people to continue playing this game.

I hope I'm able to explain this right.

I thought I found a way to pass the hole by using many of the tools available and almost all my coins. I only needed one more face card, then I cleared out the remaining cards by using one of the tools, but when the next screen or hole popped up, the game cleared all the 7 face cards I had already clicked on and brought the number back to zero, so I had to start all over again, (that was maddening) but on top of being incredibly frustrated and angry that I got so far, but I also used a ridiculous amount of coins to get there just to find out it was for nothing,

I stopped playing this game because I realized it's impossible to pass this hole and now I decided to see if I could find help about this on-line.

This hole is impossible to pass as far as I'm concerned. If anyone knows a way to do it, I'd really appreciate it if you'd share it with me. Thank YOU!

A lot of these hole are tough. And many of the challenges are annoying. My personal most-hated is 'no mistakes'. Grrrr.....

For 'face cards only', you need to have a lot of Queens. Kings and Jacks can only connect to Queens, so you'll need at least 3 to make a good run. One tip is that if you need another face card, a Midas club will count as a face card.

Another trick I use is that if I am one card short of completing a challenge run (not just 'all face cards' but also 'all spades', 'no diamonds' 'ascending/descending', 'alternate between 2', etc.) you can play a Midas club to win. THEN use the mulligan to get the Midas club back, but your challenge win will still be recorded.

Other than that, it's spending coins. One thing I do is every course I play on the main courses and bonus courses, I get a perfect score on every hole and I gold flag every hole EXCEPT ONE. Then on 'pro stars' bonus day, I finish that last gold flag on each of those courses and get an easy 10,000 gold. That's how I make most of my money, actually, and I have millions of gold.

Hope some of this helps!
