Can you solve this E&P board Puzzle!

6B to 6A at least combo 3 with 11 Stones and setup for a yellow diamond

I don’t know if it’s random, or if I just haven’t figured out the pattern, but is there a way to know where the dragon will form in this case? That’s always the big unknown for me trying to start a cascade.

I meant more specifically, the dragon could form at A3, A4, A5, or A6 if you make the green 3- match first causing the 2 blues to then go in to row 1 for the 4-match

If you move B6 to A6, the blue dragon can appear at any of A3, A4, A5, or A6. I just verified this - the dragon can appear on any tile of the four in the match when it is created as part of a combo after the initial move.

I would move B6 to A6, that will create a combo of atleast 10 tiles if not more. :slightly_smiling_face:

I would swap d3 and c3

I concur. Give’s the yellow 4 the 1.1 bonus, gives a dragon, then that yellow dragon blows with the other yellows in 2 and 4.

I like A6 to B6. The green 3 will charge Zeline and combo into a blue 4. It then has a 1/4 chance (dragon appears on A5) to combo into a yellow 4 and a 3/4 chance (Dragon appears anywhere but A3) to allow for a yellow diamond centered on D2 in the next move. Since the one tile hitting Khiona will charge her special, Zeline will be able to dispel the fresh buff instead of letting it be replaced.

I don’t believe the question was about how to best play this board. If it was then I would probably agree with you.

Fair. My move has a chance at 3 combo 11 tiles which is higher than the OP’s, though not guaranteed.

I’m reasonable]y certain that the dragon always appears in the place of the tile that created the 4-match. If it’s as a direct result of your move, thatntile will be the one you moved.

I’m happy to be proved wrong about this.

What if the 4-match isn’t the result of a direct move? In the OP’s example, if you swap B6 and A6, it will create a green 3-match. Then, 2 blue tiles will take their place in A5 and A6, creating a blue 4-match in A3 through A6.

When I indirectly create a 4-match like this, I’m never sure where the dragon will form, it seems random to me that it could be any of the 4 spots in A3 through A6. Just wondered if anyone else had noticed a pattern, or if it truly is random

Edit: @kerridoc I completely agree with you about the direct move. It’s always the tile you move to create the 4-match

Yeah that is what I’d do as well. Here’s the reasoning:

  • it will create a little cascade of green, blue and yellow based on the now visible tiles.
  • it will generate mana for heroes that are still standing, hopefully get Zeline and Greg ready to fire their special
  • it is a move high up the board, there’s no telling what goodness may drop into the board and cause additional cascades. Moves high up the board are preferred over moves down the board, because the additional chance of cascading.

Green + cascade of a good number of tiles (color less relevant) + high up the board, basically closes the deal here.
