If you are just starting out with Candy Crush Saga you might not know about the special pieces of candy pieces that can be created. The striped piece is one of the most common and easiest to make and it can help to clear a row vertically or horizontally. How do you know where it is going to travel? It depends on the stripes. If you can get bombs or obstacles knocked out with one of these it makes it a lot easier to clear a board. The best way to get the hang of how to use this special piece is to play around with it. No two boards are exactly alike and the things that are used on the boards vary from level to level so knowing the maximum impact of a detonation and what you are going to be able to clear with it will help you plan the best move possible.
