Favorite Things: Candy Crush Saga

I blame my boss for my most recent game addiction.  I heard her and another coworker talking about the game I kept seeing my Facebook friends playing.  I figured if so many people were playing it, it had to be good.  Plus, it's always a good idea to get on your boss' good side and share their interests, right?

I'd do a terrible job describing the game so here is the blurb from the game makers themselves:


Welcome to the Candy Shop! Which one is your favorite? Crush candy to create special sweets such as striped candy, wrapped candy and rainbow candy. Combine these specials to create spectacular effects such as Super Stripe and Mega-Candy.


  1. Create rows or columns with three candies of the same color to remove them.
  2. Make special combinations with 4 or 5 candies to create special sweets.
  3. Combine the special sweets to create spectacular effects that will crush even more candy!
The game itself is free, but you need to purchase admittance to advanced levels.  Or get your Facebook friends to help you.  Somehow, Mike can unlock new levels by playing special boards, but he can only try once in a 24 hour period.  I find it strange that different people get different options regarding this.  Nevertheless, they have sucked me in and I pay $0.99 to unlock the next board!  I figure, it's $0.99 for a good week or two of entertainment.  It's cheaper than a two hour movie, that's for sure!  The one nice thing about the game is that you are given 5 lives.  Once they are used up you have to wait a certain time period to earn more lives.  So, you aren't left looking at the clock thinking, "Where did the last 3 hours of my life go?"!

  1. I've gotten sucked in! When I celebrated passing a level that I had been stuck on last weekend, Jim looked at me and said, "You're such a dork!" I am, but I don't care!
