Level 340

Image
Concentrate on collecting all the flowers, and you should (hopefully) find that as you do that, your strawberries fall into place anyway. Make sure you move the crops to affect as many flowers as you can, then you will open more than one at a time, and it will save moves. Take advantage of any added value on crops. Try to avoid the snowballs falling down too far if you can, as you could end up having to use shovels to break them. It might take a few tries to complete the level, but its more a case of having the right combinations rather than being hard. Make vertical rows in between flowers to help open at least 3 each time.

Level 339

Image
You MUST build up the value of these crops by making multiple matches around them. If you can't, you will run out of moves. If you look like you might scrape past this level, you could use your boosters to get a higher score and earn more stars, but I think, unless you are really lucky, this is going to be one of those levels where you will get one star, sit back and possibly, never ever look at it again. Of course I could be wrong and you could fly through the level. In which case, add your tips as comments underneath this post. Take advantage of any +5 moves. Use any moves you can to break your iced crops. Then you can save your shovels to grab any higher valued crops when you can. Try and line your matches up so that if you make a match on the bottom line, the crops above will fall to line up nicely and make matches where your ice blocks are. Remember some of those matches will need to be near snowballs so that you can uncover what is underneath, as sometimes cropsies are

Level 338

Image
Make as many rows as you can around the water buckets. Not only will it break snowballs, but it will also make water. Its quite hard to get 15 drops, but if you can make rows on the grass of all crops, it adds points to each crop gathered. Make matches next to snowballs to break them.

Level 337 **Rancid**

Image
We have to throw at Rancid, Apples, Suns, Strawberries and Onions but we have ice and snowballs to slow us down. Companions don't really seem to help as you need so many crops to activate the more useful one but it might work if you have a good board. Try and make as many rows as you can on the grass rows but near the snowballs so that you don't get so many dropping down on the board. The more snowballs you have on the board the harder it is to match crops. Use shovels to drop crops onto the grass or break ice.

Level 336

Image
You will see in this level, you have one strip of grass in the middle. Use this strip as much as you can when making matches then you will get extra points. Watch out for the snowballs falling down, you need to keep making matches to keep them away. Use shovels to remove random crops, when they are in the way of a successful match.

Level 335

Image
You usually find if you have a lot of moves, you know the level will be harder. Looking at this one, you could agree. Most of the crops are either under ice, or webbed, and behind flowers. You have to break ice or webs to get anywhere to start with. At least if you get stuck for moves the board will move around. I find using a shovel on an ice block can help. Match crops next to several flowers at a time, it will save valuable moves for you. Clear the ice, move the spider and you should find that your crops keep dropping making a nice huge score.

Level 334

Image
You will notice on these levels that yes the crops are laid out differently each time, but the basic ice blocks are usually in the same place. Try and break the ice as soon as you can, it will make life easier for you. Move as quickly as you can in the beginning to make matches, once your snowballs fall down, it becomes harder to break them. You should find that as crops are dropping, they make nice multiple matches for you, meaning more value.

Level 333

Image
This is a really hard level again. One of the two hardest ones on this episode of levels. You only have to match strawberries and water drops but you will notice that you have a an ice patch that makes snowballs. If you can get any extra value on crops on this level it will help you Use your shovels wisely. Don't rush in and use them if you can make a move elsewhere. Try and take out as many crops as you can in the first few moves before your snowballs fall down. Under the snowballs are healthy crops, if you cannot see another good move, you could always take the chance and use a shovel on a snowball, but it might not be the required crop underneath.

Level 332

Image
The spider jumps around, so you need to start by breaking the ice and removing the flowers, then moving the spider and restarting the breaking webs until he has gone. Combinations and rows of 5 crops are vital here.

Level 331

Image

Level 330

Image
The best way to tackle this level is from the bottom so that it gives the crops more falling space. Although there are a few patches of grass, they cannot really help much, so you need to try to make the crops cascade by planning your moves carefully. Its not as easy as it sounds. Always match the crops with the highest points first and I would advise making your eggs crack and making your chicks as your priority. Once they are out of the way you can concentrate on gathering the other crops. Companions didn't help me at all.

Level 329 **Farm Club**

Image
Break as many rows as you can with as many combinations as possible so that you break webs and hit spiders to get them to move. You must make crops fall into rows by themselves to break more webs and get the requirements you need. The eggs should not be too hard to match up at least.

Level 328

Image
This one is a little more fun than the last level. Start by making matches between the frozen squares to get to your flowers to begin opening them. It makes it easier to get them. You can swap matches on top of the frozen patches as long as you have the same crop either side, which helps. Its not a hard level, once you get the flowers, but you need to increase the value if you can on the other crops, as sometimes the crops don't drop near each other. Use a shovel if you get lone crops with higher value.

Level 327

Image
The dragons are not so bad to get. Once you have broken the iced water underneath, move them down (hopefully by making a vertical crop row underneath) and make your dragons. Once they are lined up the iced eggs will break and off they pop. The hardest part is making the water because of all the iced crops in front of the buckets. Break the ice as soon as possible, even if you need to use shovels. Then make as many rows as you can next to the buckets which will bounce around and hopefully land where you need them. Make rows out of water with more points on first.

Level 326

Image
Ice patches at the top of the level, creating snowballs. But you know you can break snowballs by making a match next to them. All the flowers are at the bottom and you need to open all of them. Concentrate on removing the flowers first, as you get further down the screen, more crops will fall meaning you will get more matches, and hopefully combinations of matches, increasing your value for each needed crop. You should find as well, a lot of the snowballs get broken by falling crops which really helps

Level 913

Image
20 moves  3 Black Sheep 3 Sheep 120 Carrots 120 Onions Two things about this level. You need to get the white sheep to the hay first as the black sheep will eat it. If its a choice between the white or black sheep moving when you make a row next to both, white always move first. So make rows next to your white sheep to get them to move up to the hay. If you can combine rows that touch more than one sheep, even better. Even if one of them is black. As long as you have most of your hay, it doesn't matter about the black sheep eating it. At least it gets it out of the way. You will need combinations for the rest of the crops, but the sheep seem to be the hardest part.

Level 912

Image
17 Moves Requirements: 6 Poppy flowers 6 Flowers 85 Carrots 85 Onions 85 Suns You need to be careful moving the bulls. You are better making a row horizontally in front of them rather than vertical, as you will find doing it the other way, that you move a bull up or down. You don't want to do that. You just need them to go across. If you move one across out of the way, then you might be able to make to make a vertical row then to move more than one. You only need to get them to the other side, once you have done that, gather your crops. Watch out for those snowballs though as they fall and get in your way!

Level 911

Image
25 Moves Requirements: 18 Oysters 25 Firecrackers 150 Strawberries 150 Water drops Its a lot easier to get the firecrackers than it is the oysters, but to get to the oysters you have to clear a path. Start by making as many rows as you can, touching as many firecrackers as you can, and then when they are moving, start working your way in between the gaps to get to the oysters. Don't worry about them opening and closing at the moment, you will have chances to get them later. Its fairly easy to get the crops, the hardest part are the others so concentrate on them. (I used companions for quickness, you won't have to :) )

Level 679

Image
20 moves (revised) Requirements: 50 Strawberries 4 Flowers 6 Oysters Lots of free boosters,were you like me, waiting to see what nasties appeared? Open your oysters and flowers, by making rows in between them wherever you can. Use the tractors when you can't make a move. When strawberries land next to the air drop boosters, swap them to get more strawberries flown in. You will get more fall onto the board but you might as well take advantage of the extra ones :)

Level 678

Image
20 Moves Requirements: 1 Sheep 1 Spider 4 Flowers 60 Strawberries A fun but tricky level. Open up your flowers as quickly as possible. It doesn't matter if you move your sheep as you can work around him. Once the flowers are open, concentrate on getting your sheep across, while breaking the spiders webs open. Once you move him, he has an empty nest. Once both of those are complete, you will just have to gather any remaining strawberries,trying to get extra value on them to make the numbers up.

Level 677

Image
14 Moves Requirements: 60 Onions 60 Strawberries 4 Flowers 4 Fireflies What a fun level.  Open the fireflies. Most of the time, the board seems to lay itself so its not too hard and you don't need to use too many moves. At least it was this way when it was first made. Once they are out of the way, drop your crops, make your rows and they will take care of the bombs, just remember to open your flowers and you are home straight :) Save shovels for making better matches. 

Level 676

Image
22 Moves (revised) Requirements: 5 Flowers 30 Apples 30 Onions 30 Strawberries You need an incredibly lucky board, crops with extra value on and lots of water. Be careful where you make your flowers so you don't trap crops from falling down. Use your shovels to gather higher value crops and save your boosters for this level. But don't use them until the end when you know by using them, you will be able to complete the level. Make a lot of water to flood the board. No you don't need to collect it, but you will remove all the crops and have new ones fall down.

Level 895

Image
26 Moves 2 Black Sheep 20 Firecrackers 75 Apples 75 Carrots Luckily, we don't need to provide our own water here, so try and make the hay near the sheep as much as you can. You need two because the greedy sheep will eat them when landing on it. Make as many moves next to your firecrackers as you can, you need 20, but hopefully the ones you set off will help the others too.

Level 894

Image
16 Moves Requirements: 4 Fireflies 100 Water drops 100 Carrots 100 Apples This is quite a hard level but not as impossible as you first think. Try and collect as many apples/Water drops as you can before you unleash the frogs, but you will need to add value to them to get the numbers up. Once the frogs are in play, concentrate on freeing the fireflies, while gathering good rows with points added on. When they are out of the way, you need to make as many +5 rows as you can, and use shovels to drop crops. Although we have grass, its unlikely you will get many, if any, matches on it as it is in an awkward place. So try and set your crops on your logs up, so when they move, they make another row for you.

Level 893

Image
21 Moves Requirements: 1 Spider 6 Flowers 150 Carrots 150 Strawberries The key to this level again is cascading crops. Don't touch the right side of the board if you can help it, until the spider has moved from his first nest. The reason being, the less free crops, the less crops he can web. You need crops to cascade, or at least line up well against as many flowers as you can, to open as many as you can in each move. Once the spider has moved, concentrate on moving him from his current web until he has gone. While at the same time building your crops and flower gathering numbers. Use shovels to drop crops so that you get a better row as it will save a move. +5 rows will go a long way to completing this level too.

Level 892

Image
22 Moves Requirements: 4 Fireflies 80 Carrots 95 Strawberries 95 Water drops Observations about this level. You don't need companions or boosters... Break the ice and ignore the fact you have grumpy crops, just get it broken. Stun the chicken as much as you can. The only other crop you get apart from required crops, are the suns. Which means you will be able to make plenty of good rows. Try and make the grass so it covers at least some of the slime squares, but even if you can only clear one side of the board, you will make grumpy rows yes, but you will make plenty of clean crops too. Cascading crops are your friend and will earn you the points needed to pass the level. Once you have cleared the ice, open your fireflies and remove them, leaving you just the crops to concentrate on.

Level 891 **Rancid**

Image
17 Moves 650 Carrots, Apples, Suns, Water drops Make as many rows as you can on the grass and next to firecrackers. This will earn you extra points and set the firecrackers off to gain more crops. The key to this level isn't just combinations and +5 rows, but you need to cascade your crops so plan your rows carefully. The more cascading crops, the more points you gain and the more crops you get for each move. *edit. On request I went back and redid with 3 shovels and no companion. If I could eventually get a  decent board, so can you!*

Level 890

Image
23 Moves Requirements: 14 Flowers 8 Oysters 160 Apples 160 Carrots This level relies heavily on firecrackers falling on flowers. Set off as many as you can while making rows against the oysters. If you move them quickly by making rows that touch as many oysters as you can, it saves moves later. Use combinations in between oysters and firecrackers. Keep matching the crops with the most value first. This level can be done without using companions, but the grower ones does help, as it means you don't need to rely on just the firecrackers hitting them. Its very hard to make rows against the flowers but not impossible, so plan moves carefully.

Level 889

Image
26 Moves (revised) Requirements: 3 Sheep 125 Carrots 125 Strawberries 125 Water drops You need to move your sheep, down to the logs to move them along the river, then up onto the hay. You could move them down to the grass then across the logs to the grass on the other side then over logs again to the hay, but that seems harder to get. While moving your sheep across, you also need to gather the crops. If you match rows on the grass they have more value, but you need to increase value on all rows before you gather them. Otherwise you won't have enough moves to get all you need.

Level 888

Image
25 Moves (took away 4 sheep) Requirements: 8 White Sheep 4 Black Sheep 95 Suns 95 Water drops This level is one that will challenge your observation skills. To complete in the moves, you need to move more than one sheep at a time. So you need to position your crops very carefully and not miss any chances. You can even do that with both colours of sheep. Because the white sheep will trot along first and the black sheep last. So if you can manage to move 3 in one move, the extra moves you save will go towards gathering crops. I know this takes some working out and you could be on it a while, but its nice to have a level that relies on your skill as well as crops falling where you need, instead of just pure luck. Getting the crops shouldn't be too bad, as long as you match the rows of crops with points first.

Level 887

Image
18 Moves 2 Black Sheep 100 Apples 100 Carrots 100 Onions This level is one of those where you need to sit back and watch crops fall and fall. The only thing is, this makes it quite boring. You don't need to collect the flowers, but they are obstructing the sheep and the hay, so most of them need to be opened. Meaning you will probably open all. Save your shovels for leading your sheep. Don't be tempted to use them anywhere else until they are home. A lot of crops will fall through the clear logs, but a lot will fall on the slime. Until you get a good couple of rows of flowers clear, don't worry about if they are grumpy crops or not. Obviously you want the clean crops, but you do have time to build up more. You need the space and the grass will clean them. The bombs are pretty easy to clear. Just match them with a crop from the log. Even if one or two go off, as long as you collect lots of good crops later on, you will not notice the ones lost.

Level 886

Image
20 Moves Requirements: 1 Spider 2 Black Sheep 135 Carrots 135 Onions I loved this level, hopefully you will too. You don't need to open all flowers, just enough to free the sheep to get to the hay which is just above them. If you cascade crops and plan carefully for combinations etc you will soon get your points too. The spider is really easy to get, just start opening flowers and he will go. You don't even need companions here :)

Level 885 **Farm Club**

Image
17 Moves 2 Chicks 100 Apples 100 Carrots This level has been changed at last!! **and not only that its been changed again and completely re-done ! Start by making all your moves of the biggest rows of crops against the firecrackers as you need quite a few.  We only get one chicken, but she happily lays eggs aplenty for us, so actually, getting the two chicks needed isn't that hard. The reason being, the firecrackers often crack her eggs open for us and because the crops are rotating on the logs, they move nicely into place. As far as Farm club levels go, this is definitely one of the better ones. In my few attempts I mostly passed and the final 2 star result was without shovels. Save shovels until the end if you can just in case and you should be fine.
