I haven’t even looked to see what Kirsty’s prompt for I Must Confess is today, because I have another confession that I desperately need to get off my chest.
And it involves Candy Crush. Do I really need to go on?
You see, for a while there I gave it up completely. I said once I passed level 300 I would quit and I did. I deleted it from my phone, I “hid” it on Facebook. To be honest it was quite easy, and I didn’t even think about it. Then one day, I can’t remember why, I thought I’d re-install it on my phone. It was probably to pass the time waiting in the school parking lot. That was the end of my CC hiatus. I zipped through the next 50 levels where I then got to, and remained stuck at, level 350.
I’ve been on this level for weeks, bordering on months now! I’m not even joking! I’m glad it doesn’t tell you how many times you’ve played a certain level, because this would be embarrassing.
To my credit I have never once paid a cent for Candy Crush. But the other night, when I burst 71 out of 73 jellies and ran out of moves, I tried to. For some reason, my iTunes account asked me to verify my payment method. Maybe it always does that when you’re purchasing game-related things, to keep kids from racking up huge bills? I don’t know. It asked for the 3 digit code on the back of my credit card and, not knowing it off the top of my head, I hit “cancel” because I was too lazy to get off the couch and find my credit card.
Now, I am still stuck on level 350 and I can NOT flipping pass it! I can see why it’s called Candy Crush Saga. This level itself has become a saga!
Do you have an addiction? Have you ever paid money for Candy Crush or another Facebook game?
