I posted this in another thread, but thought it might be useful in this stickied thread since hexic.info is mentioned a lot.
Hexic.info is still available at
I imagine the owner just let the hexic.info DNS entry expire.
Also, I found these videos helpful:
Master Grid Pt 1
In the video, you can click the green annotation to get to Part 2. Then click the next annotation to see how to go from a Masters Grid to a Poobah.
Note: I did not make the videos. They were just ones I found which were most helpful to me.
Edit: Got the Poobah today. I only made the bottom 3 rows of the Masters Grid, then one more Star on the 4th row, on the left. I continued making stars there, moving them to safety down below. After a bomb, I would make a pearl and move it to the bottom left. (I waited until after a bomb since the pearl messes up some of your grid, giving you less control.)
I would then rebuild my 3/5th's grid and continue as above, making a pearl after a bomb. After the 5th pearl and moving it to the bottom left, I didn't bother rebuilding. Instead I made my 6th pearl in the bottom right area, moved it, and made the Poobah.
An extra piece of advice:
Get rid of colored star multiplier pieces. When combined with a bomb, every tile of that color will be wiped out, wreaking havoc on your grid. Only defuse a bomb with one as a last resort.
I still feel I got lucky. Most of my bombs were very easy to defuse.
