    Yep, missed that one, thanks. Switching to Yes vote.

    However, that wasn't the point I was making: any of these items in play are enforced by the game at the end of the stage where un-used moves remain. There can't be a blanket-ban on these items.

    Are you on my radar?
    I'd rather be last on every game than throw my time away chasing only one score.

    The only banned items are the "boosters", presumably because they are not available to all players, in equal numbers, at all times. So, allowing their use would give some players an unjust advantage over others.

    The enhanced items ("striped candies"?) are evidently part of the game's bonus system, so they appear in everyone's games. The rules make no reference to them, and that's fine by me.

    Anyone interested in finding out how to play Candy Crush without "boosters" should check the aforementioned thread for suggestions. Join the discussion, if you have anything to add.

    That thread has JJT quoting something that states that all the in-game bonuses are boosters - this is a misleading link.

    I don't think I need to stress that Mr Torres was not right about everything, in that discussion.

    Some of the findings were arrived at by trial & error.

    I shall trust everyone to use his or her common sense, when reading what is in that thread.

    It's not perfect, but it's where this all started, and it's the best reference available, at present.

    Sorry Simon, still laughing at Candy Crush and scandal being used as the same time. Still, I'll prefer to listen to Pete on whether his findings are because when he gives information, he does it better. XD

    Bah, no editing dispute posts either. Still. Pete, if you're okay with this dispute then I'll vote yes.

    Gonna be a big cred hit for me but AD's on target with the dispute as best I can make out and that's more important. I've tried to replicate a circumstance where a "free booster" appears without the player's input but it just isn't happening for me.

    I trust you, bud. I was lucky enough to stay away from this scandal.

    I believe what was meant in the ruling was that you may not use purchased boosters or select boosters before starting the level. The rules say, "You may NOT use Boosters or your record/attempt will be disqualified!" which technically means that, for example, if you get a 4 in a row striped candy, you cannot use it. Even as you play the game purposely avoiding the booster, the game can drop candies to activate the booster.
