Match & Merge, not worth it for GOTW
I just submitted a score of 159,440 because that beats the 157,730 required to get an entry, took forever, I think I was on level 17 or 18 and with supposed double tickets I only got a measly 50 tickets.
Cute game, might play it for fun when I want to waste time and get no tickets, but for GOTW, no way.
Can we go back to the games and scores we had last year when Sean was the host? At least we could win some decent tickets and had a chance to win entries. It was fun then, it’s not fun anymore. I used to look forward to Friday game day. So sad.
Myra The secret to getting points quickly in this game is to finish each level in as few plays as possible. The game then plays your remaining moves for you. I just got to 166,940 in 11 levels. Also, this is a nice game to practice on over time. As long as you don’t exit and collect tickets (or clear cookies) you can come back in and take up where you left off.
That was my first time playing, so I was learning as I played. I also kept releasing the mouse while I was dragging and BLOOP BLOOP BLOOP, all of the little bubbles would form bars in my path and block me from getting where I needed to go, Lesson learned, keep dragging until you reach your destination!
It’s just not a game made for GOTW, the games should be quick and hopefully allow a chance at some high tickets. What’s next Tumble Tiles as GOTW?
And the scores on most of the games are way too high. Not fair that the “host” that we never see or hear from gets to play over and over then reports their highest score ever that we need to win against. This should be fun, not agonizing.
Hi Lizzie, I played this game for the first time today. I think I got to level 16 or 17. The part where you get rid of the little poison dots (I can’t remember what they’re called).
Anyway, it took me FOREVER and I only got 30 tickets.
Definitely a horrible GOTW because of the time it takes, way too long.
How do you “Not Exit”?? I use a computer, which I shut down at night.
Hi justwanthelp Unless your computer is set to erase cookies whenever you close the browser, you should be able to just close the browser window without exiting the game. It will then come back up where you left off when you come back in. If your browser is set to clear cache and cookies on shutdown, you’ll need to go into settings and adjust it to only clear cache and not cookies.
Justwanthelp, I agree with your asssessment of the new GOTW. I found I had been working on this game for 45 minutes last night & still didn’t reach the score we have to beat. This takes entirely too long going thru all these levels. I guess Shannon plays this one all the time & is really good at it; for me, I was a wreck. I needed a tranqualizer (lol) by the time I finally figured how to play it. This is no longer any fun; too much stress. Maybe I’m just too bad at these “new games”. Last week while I was playing pool, it took me 13 attempts to try to control the pool cue & the computer said I scratched when I never even had control of the cue. I find I’m just buying the tickets to enter for the drawing. PLEASE bring back the fun. A couple weeks ago, with Kritter Krawler, the score was not ridiculously high to beat so that was fun & it wasn’t a brand “new” game. I enjoyed that. We had a chance and earned tickets. Why not have one “new” game & one old game so we can get a chance to earn the tickets. What good are double tickets when they are ridiculously hard to get & too long to play. I finally beat the score (about 30 minutes) & only got 30 tickets. Thirty to forty-five minutes to beat the score is nuts. Why not a game like 52 Pickup for a different game or one of the old games. Is anyone else having a problem with playing & achieving the scores required for the GOTW? This is just MHO. Not enjoyable anymore. Using the mouse last week it said to click the right side to turn the tiles around; I did & it didn’t. I never could turn them using the mouse. I found I could only do that with using the up, down, left, right & space keys. Instructions for play are not good. Too many questions with no answers and really, 18 levels? Most of the Mah Jongg games take 3 – 5 minutes to play not 30.
Your lucky you can play, most likely this Sean person isn t in charge anymore. I don’t get anything to play not can I get into community to read subjects I might be able to help with. I hear from noone, not Trekky or Lizzie818.
If I hit my enter key while creating a post the big cursor black and white hand points to nothing, can’t even see what I’m typing. No vote for me, no double tickets because no games are compatible with Silk anymore. Yet they have the nerve to sell AMAZON KINDLE fire tablets 6 mos ago and I had ,9 games, I waited patiently for the supposed new better than ever arcade to start!! Wow I had almost 30 games, only vote I can’t play was suduko, then these new one popped up your lucky to even get 50 tickets. All I play is Adams game over and over 10-20 games a day and puzzle gives you 100 points. Getting 50 is good try 30-40 50 maybe 60 or on a big win ,75 tickets. My 3 cents worth not even worth 3 cents after the tough luck letter I received from arcade master. Shannon is not a host but a robot!!!
Myra1 how do you know you were entered for the GOTW??….any entries I see are the ones I use tickets…I would think it would show an entry when playing the game….TSP does not show entry when played how do you know you were entered?…thanks
ky17, As with all the GOTW games, you are automatically entered each time you tie or break the given score. There is no way to track how many times you do that except with a pencil and paper. If you’re insecure about whether you’re being entered, you can always enter with tickets. HSN has said they never penalize us if we enter too many times; they just toss the extra entries. Maximum entries for GOTW is 20.
This is one of those games I play over a long period of time. I will switch browsers to play for GOTW so I can keep my score going on my on-going game and probably make a lot of the entries in the Rewards Store.
