Many times. Often after playing the one match-3 move I was given. I have never had a board START like that.
The trick is how to deal with it and change the board around. We all deal with “bad boards” more often than not. With the right team composition I can weather the storm and change the board in my favour to eventually win. And this is often against teams stronger than mine.
I go through periods where no matter what I do the board does not turn around and I lose too. It is very aggravating. Then i get a board where I will get a cascade on my colour on the first move and there are two opponents left.
Mind you, I once had a board with a diamond match in the first move that killed the tank and then got NO replacement colours that I needed and lost.
