Your first objective is to make a vertical striped candy or color bomb to get some pieces to fall in. Otherwise you will be done before you even get started. Once some pieces are flowing, if you have the opportunity to do so, create a couple of more openings or a color bomb to allow more pieces to work from. Use the non red pieces to make striped and wrapped candies.

Make anything that will go vertically to release more candies –or a color bomb matched with a locked color candy will do it too. Then look to create color bombs and keep matching them to colors to collect the red, then remove another color—then back again.
