    This is quite a hard achievement, but if you really concentrate, you can get this in a surprisingly short time.
    To get a black pearl, you need to create a flower of stars.
    (You will also unlock Oyster-meister if you haven't already got it)
    You need to do this 3 times. So that's 18 stars.

    I'd suggest turning the patterns on in the settings, as this can make it a lot easier to see potential star flowers.


    Star-walking is essential to move star pieces into place to get a black pearl.

    What is Star-walking? If you have two stars stacked one on top of the other, you can grab the top star as the center, and turn it so that the other star piece moves. Swap sides and repeat until you've moved the stars into place.
    Be careful of accidental combos below the stars you're walking!

    You should try to make the starflowers as close to the center as you can, as this will make getting this achievement easier.

    NeXuS23Why the heck does "Grand Pearl Pooh-Bah" not create a "Big Cheese of the South Seas" too, its a Cluster of 7 after its finished, and still i had to do a separate "Big Cheese of the South Seas" because it only counted as "Grand Pearl Pooh-Bah" not both, absolutely cheap.

    I found it easier and time efficient *not* to create a whole master grid if you are aiming to get this achievement. However, I recommend you still create some type of small starflower grid system in order to create more starflowers.

    I created pearls one by one whenever I had the opportunity, while always making sure that I had at least three starflowers on the board at all times. I messed up a couple of times (causing starflowers to either blow up or three-way combine) but I found this to be still do-able. Just watch what your doing, and you'll do fine.

    Uber JapseYes you can use this for the Pooh-Bah. But if your new to hexic i would recommend using the other combo.. Its easyer to setup and. But if your up to the challenge go ahead:D
