Moves are one of the main features of Diamond Digger Saga. A move consists of matching at least three same colored diamonds that are one by another. A successful match will decrease the total number of remaining moves by one.

When you complete a board you receive two additional moves at the start of the next one.

Mystery eggs (available is selected levels from level 271 onwards) may grant two additional moves when brought down.

All remaining moves left, after the level target is reached, will result in converting each one to additional 2,000 points.

The moves can range from 9 to more than 50. When you run out of moves and you haven't reached the level objective, you'll fail the level.
