Level 242’s board is actually very complex with only 4 out of 9 columns having exit points for the 4 ingredients that you have to bring down. The problem here is that ingredients spawn on the columns that do not have exit points in them. You will be forced to swap the ingredients to the columns that actually have exit points. With all 6 colors present on screen, special candies can be hard to form on your own, so it’s a good thing that there are a number of surprise candies given at the start of the level.These are what you have to use to work around the complex board, and here’s how:

1. Utilize special candies:
Create and optimize specials and match them with each other to maximize their power. The specials spawning from surprise candies can be really helpful, so use them strategically. Wrapped + striped special combo, or a pair of color bombs, is the most ideal combinations.

2. Stay away from stuck zones:
Once you have already switched ingredients to columns that have exit points, be careful to keep them there and don’t switch them back to stuck zones as you may not be able to retrieve them.

3. Be attentive where your ingredients are:
You might be wasting moves in columns that do not even have ingredients. Focus on switching them to columns that have exit points and in dropping them down.
