Distilling spice problem

Ok, so I've had this happen a couple times, and I'm fed up with it. Occasionally in distilling, I've gotten two spices at the very bottom of two consecutive shorter columns, with a gap in between for the longer column. This makes it absolutely impossible to be able to interact with the piece trapped in between the two spices, and it's just so happened that it's a black one that breaks up my CC chain.

There's got to be a way to make a quick fix to prevent this from happening. You can play 100% perfectly and still be forced into a low "good" simply because of a board that can't be interacted with...

I would post a picture, but I have no clue how to do that on this forum.

Re: Distilling spice problem

It's known as "spice lock" and is a major frustration to all decent distillers. I don't have the link but I know it has been brought up in game design before, where the devs outright refused to fix it. (A position I strongly disagree with.)

Re: Distilling spice problem

Distilling (Idea Links):Don't create spices in top or bottom rows was one proposed solution. The Developers haven't implemented that change.
