This is my last achievement and I can't find a guide/ good strategy that seems to work. Any help would be appreciated!

Chain Wizard requires that you make a combo of ten chains. It's not too difficult once you know what they are after.

Go into your settings and change the T.A. (Time Attack) Mode settings to 5 colours.

Then select an endurance game (the longest one just to give you time but to be honest, if you mess up just restart the game).

What you need are blocks of three of the same colour. Start in the bottom left and make a set of three (or more). Then you want to make another set of three next to it. You can work up or to the left from here (you'll have to do both).

Do not use any beat drops in this time. Place your blocks by holding down on the analog stick.

The key is to make sure that the block of three only touches one other block of three. And that the next one only goes on to touch one more block of three and so on. After you've carefully made ten blocks of three, make one more and beat drop it. As the first (most recent) block is converted/cleared/destroyed/whatever, it'll set off the next one and so on.

This is why you've got to make sure a block of three only touches a block of three on each side, that's what keeps the chain going.

Example,

B = Blue
R = Red
C = Cyan
G = Green
Y = Yellow
X = the first set of three that you'll detonate with a beat drop.

BYYBGGCXX
BBYBBGCCX

if you detonate the set on the right (can be any colour, X just refers to the fact that they are being detonated first), it'll chain them, then the cyans, then the greens, then the blues, then the yellows and finally the blues on the far left.

In the game you do not have much room to work in and obviously it won't be as neat as above. You'll be looking to do this in a vague U shape.

Hope that helps.
