Tile Rock

A stone block is a blocker that appears for the first time in level 126.

Features Edit

  • Blocks the tile until it is destroyed.
  • Does not move or fall like the normal tiles.
  • Has 5 different hardness levels.
  • Is destroyed only when the last layer is removed
  • A regular tile with letter then appears where it was destroyed.

How to destroy Edit

  • Create words next to it to reduce gradually hardness and finally destroy it.
  • Line blasters can also be used, they reduce their hardness by one level.
  • Crowns can remove one layer of this blocker.
  • Ideas on stone block breaking
  • Playing a crown can take away one layer if no other target is available (i.e., popping a bubble. Crowns will NOT however remove a rock layer on (some growth mode levels, e.g., 313.)

Key secret to destroying stone blocks Edit

  • The main secret that isn't obvious is that a single tile touching 3 rocks will crack all 3, while wrapping a rock in a word and hitting it with 3 blasters will only crack one layer PER MOVE
  • Similarly for blasters: blasting 4 rocks in a line will crack all 4, but double blasting a rock does no better than hitting it once or playing adjacent

Destroying stone blocks -- full rulesEdit

  • Playing a crown can take away one layer if no other target is available (i.e., popping a bubble. Crowns will NOT however remove a rock layer on (some growth mode levels, e.g., 313.)
  • Therefore it is usually better to play a word (4-letter for example) along MULTIPLE STONES than "around" a single stone.  You could remove 1-layer from 4 rocks in one move but not 4-levels from one stone.
  • It is better to blast multiple stones than one stone multiple times in the same move.
  • It is better to blast one stone and play adjacent to other stones in the same move.
  • On some levels, the blasters seem to have little or no effect across "dead space" in the game tableau (222?, 170 maybe at first, but not 175) -- this behavior may be different earlier in a game or perhaps if the stone already has cracks? Some levels seem to make the dead space a barrier while a blaster played "on the active tableau" affects the stones just fine.
  • Do blasters work better (sometimes?) if CLOSER to the stone than if far away?
Strategy
  • Play to hit multiple stones on a single move (blasters or adjacent tiles)
  • Concentrate on a few stones on subsequent moves
  • On a crowded board, it is better to destroy a few stone blocks completely (obtaining room to play) than to crack every stone on the board.
  • Playing multiple adjacent tiles doesn't give better results
