This level is very similar to the previous Beghouled level, Day 8, except there are different plants and 150 matches need to be met. The matches allow the player to get more sun, thus getting more upgrades. The same strategies in Day 8 should be used in this level, as no new zombies are present. Again, try not to mix fire and ice, as the slowing effect of Winter Melon will be overrun by the fire aspect of Fire Peashooter. It is still possible to lose because of an enraged Newspaper Zombie or a Conehead Zombie or Buckethead Zombie if the row of plants are not strong enough.
Any strategies pertaining to Beghouled should apply in this level: focusing on high-reward combos, maintaining defensive plants at the front line, upgrading plants when enough sun is acquired.
Primal Peashooter should be the player's first priority when upgrading, as its knockback can greatly help in delaying the horde. The player should then upgrade to either Fume-shroom, Laser Bean, or Melon-pult; Wall-nut is usually durable enough for this level.
Electric Blueberry can be a good choice if it is purchased when there is a lot of Laser Beans, as they will be able to kill many zombies at once.
