UPDATE2: Since challenges only last for one month, please read and update the comments for easy and possible challenges for this achievement.

UPDATE: Since October 2012 has ended, the mentioned challenge is not available anymore. But I do think that Colour Charge is the best way to achieve this. You just have to wait for an easy one that has more than 149 tiles.

I recommend doing the colour charge daily challenges for this.

The one in October 21th, for instance, is easy, and has exactly 150 tiles.

The only problem I had was with the shades of green in the last one, so keep them last.

Good luck and keep retrying.

1) You can make mistake as long as you correct it quickly.
2) Not all challenges have 150 tiles, so it is not possible to win this in every challenge.

AP E JC Way to go. I played a lot of colour charges and sprint matches and this is the easiest.

Good solution tho

grex9101 Great suggestion for the level. Bloody hard though! Actually, pretty much impossible using a virtual machine and still pretty difficult on a pentium 4! (yeah, not installing win8 on my good machine!)

AP E JC After playing it a lot it becomes really easy. You just got to keep itrying. Impossible is the 10 second time tiles with a mouse. I think it is only possible with a touchscreen.

ScottMacFreedom Any tips for colourblind people?

AP E JC Definetely go for dash. I got some high speed bonus in some sprint match challenges. Probably they will raise the bar and put one above 150.
Posted by AP E JC on 24 Oct 12 at 23:20
ScottMacFreedom Heres to hoping! So far my best was 120.... and then I spun the tower and got frigged.

AP E JC Keep trying. You are getting better.

MathGuy42 FYI, Nov 1 Color Charge will not work. I had a perfect game and only got to 147. Quite annoying. Since Nov 1 only had 9 puzzles, I'll wait for 10 puzzles to actively try again.

AP E JC Thanks MathGuy, I updated to reflect that that challenge is not up anymore.

Pinicus I can confirm Nov 4th is a good one, I just FC'd it and got a chain on 179 too.
Posted by Pinicus on 04 Nov 12 at 12:14
MathGuy42 Thanks, TerreDactyl, for the Nov 4 tip. The first 9 puzzles have 149 pairs. Be warned that the 10th puzzle has many blocked tiles and has both light and dark green (for the first time in the Challenge). I got to 149 once and screwed up at the finish line. Fortunately I was successful on a later attempt. Thanks again!

I think in general, any 10 puzzle Color Charge is possible, while 9 puzzles usually has too few, since Nov 4 had 149 in the first 9 and Nov 1 had 147.

Nuttyleader Nov 4 has 174 tiles if you do it perfect

Chris8875 November 6 is almost 200 pairs and quite easy. I got mine this way today.

Tandar1 Nov 4th is really good! Thanks again!

Anyone know what's up with the clear three puzzles in one gem mode game?
Posted by Tandar1 on 09 Nov 12 at 20:16
AP E JC Besides being super difficult, you can use the strategy in my guide for the Gems Gone Wild to help. But I think it is easier with the tablet, since you can tap with your fingers quickly. I almost one it once, only four tiles were left on the puzzle. Got luck with a sequence of wildflower, gem flower as special tiles for the bonuses. Good luck trying.

Gh9st I agree that Nov. 4th is an easy one, it got me mine. Good guide, and thanks for the date Tandar1.

Arron114 Im colourblind :(
Posted by Arron114 on 15 Nov 12 at 08:08
AP E JC Go for Mix & Match then, sometimes there are easy patterns, and you must focus in not losing the speed bonus anyway.
Posted by AP E JC on 15 Nov 12 at 10:09
Skrypek Yeap, just got this on November 18th. Much easier than the previous ones.

MathGuy42 Just wanted to warn everyone that 12/12/12 Mix & Match will not work. I did it perfectly and got only 148 matches. :( I already have the achievement, but I thought this was going to be a good puzzle for color blind players. Sorry.

Rosshk I just got this on the Feb 1st Color Charge. The achievement didn't initially unlock though. I had replayed it (after already winning the challenge earlier) and got it very close to the end. I had to go back to the menu, then to the achievements menu. I clicked on this achievement (which was still grayed out), and it unlocked. And no, that didn't work for any other ones :(

Cysiek1991 28 of Feb colour charge challenge has total 219 matches!

MathGuy42 Today a Title Update added a Color Blind option for the Color Charge challenges. I'm not color blind, so I can't speak to its effectiveness. Basically, the colors become white, grey, black, yellow, brown, and 3 shades of blue. It makes it more difficult for me since I'm so used to the old mode, but you can choose which one you want in the settings.

March 22 has 186 pairs to match, so you might want to grab that one before March ends.

Cecil Kilmer April 8th has a color match that has 160+ (it was between 163 and 167), so you have the rest of April to use that one.

khan800 I just got it with June 2nd Color Charge, it is a medium puzzle, but was quite easy (160+ pairs).
Posted by khan800 on 08 Jun 13 at 17:00
