Find a way to destroy the top 3 chocolate at first. Then try to avoid liquorice from flooding the board. If you see regular matches that kill liquorice, try to use it because you will not have to deal with more and it can increase your chances of finding the right candy.
If you know how to set up colour bombs and predict future moves, then you should succeed in this easily.
Do not give up. The more you play, eventually there will be a "friendly" board set up.
On mobile, the player does not lose a life when the player makes no moves. Just start with a colour bomb booster and start over and over til you can make another colour bomb in one move. That way you start with two colour bombs.
