Hexic Tips and Strategies

· Create clusters lower on the board, that way you have a better chance of creating cascading clusters from the tiles that fall to fill in the gaps.
· To create a starflower, make a ring of same-colored tiles around a single tile. The ring of same-colored tiles will disappear and the single tile in the center will turn into a starflower.
· Form clusters using bonus pieces for extra points.
· Bonus pieces do not have to be the same color in order to create a cluster.
· Make a cluster using three same-color bonus pieces and the bonus pieces will disappear, along with every tile each of the bonus pieces is touching.
· Clear bombs first! When a bomb appears, waste no time in clearing it from the board.
· To clear a bomb, look for clusters to can clear anywhere below the bomb. Your goal is to put the bomb in position next to two same-colored tiles so you can form a cluster.
· Create a cluster of same-colored pieces using a bomb and at least one bonus piece to remove all pieces of that color from the board.
· Avoid letting your starflowers drop to the bottom of the board or you will have difficulty using them to create black pearls.
· Start making flowers early, since it is easier in the earlier levels when there are fewer tile colors.
· Look for same-colored tiles that are forming a partial flower, and then maneuver other same-color tiles into place to create a complete flower.
· Don’t create clusters beneath the flower you are trying to create or the flower tiles will fall out of position and you will have to start over.
· Create a cluster or a flower using black pearls to win the game!
