Hardest achievement ever!

Grand Pearl is the only achievement i feel i ever needed to brag about after i got it, so here it is....I GOT IT AND I STILL HAVE SOME HAIR LEFT! Seriously hardest ever, you almost have to be a puzzle savant to do it. Ide rather chew my own arm off than have to do this again. This forum really helped me get this one done thanks guys.

Congratulations! Brag away, you've earned that right!

(I will never get it unless I hole myself away for a month to practice, because I suck at combos and starwalking. I still have hopes for someday, but I'm not holding my breath.)

I'm going for it tonight. Just finished Dead Rising around 3 yesterday morning. This is my next goal. Watch the Master Grid videos on Youtube if you want help with it. I now understand the possibilities.

Good Luck, when I finally did it I had been playing Hexic for about a week. I used the method of making combos with 2 stars next to each other. When I got though the only problem was all I could do for the next 2 days was think up hexic combos, how to get stars and pearls - wasn't my best moment.

Personally, the Mortal Kombat DC "25 ranked wins in a row" achievement was WAY HARDER than this one.

But that's just my opinion. ^_^

This one was challenging, but Mortal Kombat was infuriating!

Good job nonetheless!

Congrats. After I got it I stopped playing for a while because I got wicked Tetris Syndrome. I know it's not a real condition, but I was seeing combos every time I closed my eyes.

What an addictive game! I just got my Xbox 360, and was surprised that this showed up among my XBLA titles I'd already bought (I didn't realize it was a free game for everyone with a Gold account). Once I started playing, I couldn't stop. Just today I finally got my first starflower, and I had that "Ok that's what it means" thought after doing so. I just want to keep going, and unlock everything. What an underrated game.

Was this title always free?

Yeah, getting Grand Pearl Pooh-Bah is the most difficult. It's key to star building the clusters as soon as possible because later on in the rounds you have to deal with those bombs.

lol

after i got mine i started another game and just made 21 black pearls and got bored and ended the game

after that i read more about the massive multiplier combos and started one and it was way too complicated so i intentionally blew it up halfway trough

then i started another account and went for 200G just for fun

great game, lots of fun once you understand it

holy crap this one is crazy

this is without a doubt the most insane achievement i have ever gotten! was pure luck too! the roadmap on here should have this rated as a 10 on difficulty!! this, and get a royal flush on WSOP:TOC (which i still haven't gotten) are without a doubt the most ridiculous achievements ever.

i HATE 'luck' achievements!!!!!

There is a setting in the options menu that puts designs on the hexes for colorblind people!

Got Pooh Bah tonight!!!! Thought I would never get it. Tips for all those trying, take your time and patience cannot be stressed enough!!! My match took 570 minutes but I finished it in level 2 and never had a bomb to deal with. Check every move 10 times over and it will happen!!!

This is one of those games that I just "clicked" with and understood right away. I think I have a top 50 score in survival mode. I'm proud to say I have 200/200 achievements in Geometry Wars, Bejeweled 2, and Hexic. Three of the toughest 200/200 games out there.

the game really isnt that hard. you just got to get your mind into it to learn how things fall. I had 15 black pearls on timed mode and finished the game with a black pearl flower haha. rank 55

also got the black pearl flower on my first attempt on 2nd account . Just dont give up. Its really not that bad once you wrap your head around the grid. Once you master the grid, it becomes so easy. seriously
