Yes, there are some valuable lessons learned from this addicting game. I recently joined the ranks of those who can’t stop playing this game. As always I try to find something positive in every situation so here goes.

The life lessons I have learned from Candy Crush:

1. Don’t be afraid to try something new.

Okay, so maybe there are better “new” things to try than a silly computer game, but it’s the thought that counts, right?

2. Do something that uses your brain in new ways.

Candy crush is all about making matches and seeing patterns. These are spatial things and that is something that I am not good at. Just ask dear Mr. Ken how bad are my senses of space and direction!

I am having fun looking for patterns.

3. Put some color into your life.

One reason Candy Crush is so popular because, let’s face it, everyone loves candy. The candy pieces are so realistic, I can almost taste them!

4. Recognize your limits.

Have I mentioned how addicting this game is? You have to have a lot of will power to stop playing. Although, there are built in “stopping places,” since you only get 5 tries to finish a level before you are locked out for a while. Of course, you can always but new tries, but me being the cheap, er frugal person I am, will never succumb to that.

5. Find a way around obtacles.

There is something very satisfying about advancing through the levels and you want to keep trying until you succeed. Since I will not succumb to paying for new tries, I had to find other ways to keep playing. Did you know there are two other games by the same makers of Candy Crush? They are Candy Crush Soda Saga and Candy Crush Jelly Saga.

There is also Google, which can help you with tips on how to beat each level.

It will be interesting to see how long I keep playing these games once kayaking season starts . . .

So what new things have you tried lately?
