"Genial Santa Claus 2 - the Christmas Cards" is a cute family friendly game.
In the game you have to match 3 cards by using a sliding puzzle mechanics, ie you have to move the cards using the empty space. By matching 3 cards you can create balls and other toys, that Santa can use to fulfill Christmas Wishes.

OMG! Big Thank You to moderators for correcting the mistake.

Here are some tips that would make the game even more enjoyable:

Tip 1.) Use Taps instead of swipes to move the cards. Since cards can move only one way in the direction of empty space , you don't have to show them the direction by using swipes, just tap on them. It's 3 to 5 times faster and provides a real advantage.

Tip 2.) Move multiple cards at once. You can tap farther in the same row or column from the empty space to move multiple cards at once. It allows to create interesting combos.

Tip 3.) Match more than 3 cards. For every additional matched card you create an additional toy.

Tip 4.) Don't stop adding matched cards if you've already matched 3. If you do it fast enough you can match all of them before they collapse and create toys.

Tip 5.) Enjoy the game and post any issues here, I will be happy to help.

You have to make sure that Santa has the toys to fulfill wishes. If Santa does not have the desired toy he uses hearts. If there are no more hearts and correct toys you lose the game.

For example you can make a lots of balls or bears for Santa, but if the Christmas wish is a car or a plane and you didn't make any by matching cards you will lose.

You should do both match cards by solving sliding puzzles and think strategically what toys do you need at the moment and how fast you need them.

I have noticed in leaderboards that people stop at level 47 so I created a video to show it's winnable.
Merry Christmas!
