  • When you open up this level, you’re going to want to see if there are a lot of moves surrounding the licorice–you need an easy way to break through the licorice xs to move candies into there. Keep an eye out for a board that will help you do that (similar to how you strategized your board in Level 65). Look for adjacent matches.

    If you reset you DO lose a life. Just tried it.

    • Caryl

      Lol..u must be doing something wrong. I just reset 3 times..still have 5 lives..you are wrong!!! Have someone show u how to do it…:)

      • jeff brave

        Not exactly rocket science!! You WILL lose a life on a PC. I’ve tried many times.

  • jeff brave

    If you reset you DO lose a life.

    • 1Legal_IT_Gal

      The reset occurs after moves are started…the purpose of a reset is to START with a good layout so reset as many times as needed before taking the first move.

    • Caryl

      U don’t. Lose a life as long as u just reset..don’t make a move..if u make even one move u will lose a life!

      • jeff brave

        You DO lose a life!!!!

        Not exactly rocket science!!! If you’re on a PC you WILL lose a life. I’ve tried more than once and lost a life! My Nook also I’ll lose a life. Maybe a phone you won’t.

          I’m playing on my nook hd+ right now. I reset the board over and over until i get a good board and never lose a life

      • Patricia Simpson

        You are so right, if you make a move you Lose a life .

    • Patricia Simpson

      I am using a phone you can roll the board as many times as you like which is what I always do and have never lost a life , only if you are on the timed game ,oh and by the way I am stuck … And been stuck for a while on 86 I am very seldom getting the 4 or 5 build up ,,,,,, when I do get a 5 stack it’s when I am down to one moves,,,is this frustrating or what????? !!!!!

  • Tony Haire

    WRONG. If you reset, you lose a life, whether you’ve made a move or not.

  • Barbara Moore

    I’ve reset many times and have never lost a life. As long as you make no moves

    • manangupta

      but how

      • MiSSAH

        resetting the board doesn’t work on the facebook version

        • AKM

          Right. It says though that it only works from handheld device. I think it even said phone. Download the app itsself to your phone and play thru that vs FB. Good luck to you! :)

      • AKM

        Cant do it on a PC/laptop/etc/ ONLY on Handheld devices and I BELIEVE only on a cell phone, that is. Not positive. But I KNOW you cant do it on the PC’s. :( Just use your phone on the boards proving to be very difficult and LIFE-THIEVING! :) Heres how (for future reference)

        I see how long ago youd posted this. Hopefully youve figured it out or someone has answered you, since. But I’ll answer anyway in case others need to know. Shoot! Id asked the same question several times on different pages to no avail – yet, myself! Finally I found a page (here) though that does tell you EXACTLY-step-by-step how to do it! Thank God! What an AMAZINGLY handy trick! This will ONLY work though on a HANDHELD DEVICE, (it says), so do NOT attempt on a PC or laptop, as you WILL LOSE *PRECIOUS* lives!
        1st step) What you do is look at your board thoroughly BEFORE moving/touching ANYthing! If your setup isnt good (meaning: you dont have any good moves to break thru meringue/jelly/chocolate, etc within the first 1-2 moves, then you should RESET your board.)
        2nd step.) All you do is click the gold button (bottom LEFT corner) [at least mine is] its the menu options button, nonetheless. Click that, 3rd step.) Then click on the FOURTH choice on the RIGHT. The RED option that takes you BACK to the map. THATS what you want. Go BACK TO MAP 4th step.) Then re-push the same level you just left. Voila! Youve reset your board AND lost NO LIVES!!! Whooo hooo! :)

        You can do this again, and again, and again until you get the right setup that YOU may need for WHATEVER particular board you are on! :D Niiice, right? Hope this is easy to follow fort everyone. I figured out for myself once I read it, then did it….So Im positive you can from this as well. After that, its just second-nature from there. Good luck to you ALL, in your Crushing! ;)

  • Amy Sacks

    If you are on a pc you will lose a life but if you are on a android phone or tablet you will not. I do it all the time! I believe the same goes for iphone and ipads but have never tried.

  • nbmntkbnrkbktnbjktbn4

    You only lose a life on iphone if you have made 1 or more mves If you havent made a move, you can reset as may times as you want

  • jp

    what the heck! I had over 80,000 points and all the jelly clear, game should have been over. looked again and licorice appeared and jelly appeared out of nowhere???

  • jp

    What the heck! Level 86, had over 80,000 points, all jelly removed and still had lots of moves left, nothing happened. Game should have been completed successfully and move on to the next round. Before my eyes, more licorice X’s appeared and more jelly! Grrrrrrr

  • cheryl

    It depends on your phone. Apple you can not reset. I have samsung and I can reset as many times as I want, as long as you don’t start the game ..back out, hit play again etc..

    • MEPac

      I play on an ipad and can reset as long as it’s not a timed level.

    • Caryl

      I can reset on my galaxy ax much as I want. Agree with you!!..love this game!!

  • Najmuddeen

    When you start the game you have to click on the bottom left little wheel type thing and click the back arrow to start over. You won’t lose a life this way :-)

  • Najmuddeen

    I see on my phone you have this option I do not see how to do it yet on my Mac :(

  • Candy crush 86

    I am stuck on 86 for a couple of months I use a I pad can I reset it or not, how do I do that

    • AKM

      I dont THINK so. Only on phone, I THINK. NOT positive. But I KNOW you cant on a PC/laptop. Try FAQ to be sure.

      TIP: Just use your phone on the boards proving to be very difficult and LIFE-THIEVING! :) Heres how (for future reference)

      • PropShoot

        You can reset, use quarter circle on left bottom corner and touch red exit button before making a move.

        • AKM

          Ive done that – from a phone though. When I do it on laptop I lose the life. Thanks though.

      • Rose Tate

        I have been trying for two moth, on my cell your phone , Can u pass#86, on my cellphone ? If so how? Thank You

  • Donna Damron

    I have been on level 86 since way before Christmas and I had over 400340 points and it said I still needed one jelly now tell me how can you get that high of score and still not clear all of the jellies. I am just about ready to quit the game it is tearing my nerves up driving me bananas and I am not one that is that easily persuaded to quit but I cannot make it thru this level and am tired of playing it over and over.

    • http://candycrush-cheats.com/ Candy Crush Cheats

      Hi Donna! Don’t give up! Instead of focussing on the points, try and put your attention on the jellies themselves. The points will come with the clearing of jellies.

      • Donna Damron

        I do focus on the movements and not the points that is why I was saying how can you make that many movements strategically and still not get thru the level. I have play with a strategy every time I play to remove all the jellies. thanks.

        • http://candycrush-cheats.com/ Candy Crush Cheats

          No prob Donna. Just keep on at it! You’ll get there!

          • AKM

            I feel like yall shouldnt make it soooo difficult for sooo many boards FORCING people to get frustrated and give up, especially AFTER theyve spent 30-40$ only to STILL not pass the daggone thing! Honestly, SOME boards (like every 5-10, Ii think, should be made easier…give us all a little break and a reason to WANT to continue on. Just sayin…and just my opinion. Though, Ive seen many, many others feel the same. I LOVE the game! I thank you. BUt yeah, listen to your players on just how hard yall really do make it. HELP! :) Thanks again.

    • Rita Bellaert

      i’m also getting fed up playing it over and over and over donna :-(

  • Deborah

    I had to come back to Lv86 for a quest. I find it to be a fun challenging level. Although I did take me a little longer this time through. It’s a good level to hone your strategy skills :-)

  • elmas salman

    I’m FAILS awhile assistant operation of olurmusunuz Can you give some hints please

  • scott s

    I’ve been stuck on this level for a long time. There just seems to be a series of three in a rows that never make for much help.

  • TCP1000

    This is the first level Ive really got stuck on. You have far too few moves. May give up Candy Crush now

  • Sarah

    hey,is it possible to get d exact same board in the video?

  • Pam

    I have reset my board several times and never had a board like the one in the video. This level is soooooo frustrating. I’m not sure how much longer I can play it.

  • Caryl

    Okay…stuck on 102 for a week. Any suggestions? :)

  • Jacky

    How to reset bro…

  • rhonda

    I am playing on my computer. Is there anyway to transfer the level I’m on to a mobile device so I can reset my boards?

  • rhonda

    Is there anyway to transfer my score and level from a pc to a mobile device?

  • Athena

    :( Can’t do it…

  • Mike Holsombeck

    What are blockers?

  • Rita Bellaert

    been playing level 86 for months now, getting really fed up, get to just one jelly, i wanna move on, gonna delete the game all together soon i think

    • Joyce Casalicchio DiSanto

      me too, I have tried everything. hate this level..

  • iffi khan

    Hi can u plsss tell me how to clear all jellys ??

  • Musicluver

    Helppppp……I m stuck on level 86 since Monthssssssssss :'(

  • Hani

    Done after two or three days continuous effort. Phew. Spent all my boosters. Finally with that ‘fish’ it got done :D

    Trick is to penetrate in the blocks by clearing either side and try to make striped candies or smasher and do that combo.

  • Faiza

    fed up now no guidance is working

  • JMT21

    Having just completed Level 110. I am pretty much convinced that Level 86 was the toughest level I’ve completed. I did it with a huge amount of luck on my very last move. The best advice I can offer is that when you get your first look at the board…… look to see if you have any matches to clear the licorice barriers which prevent access into the pyramid. If you don’t have at least 1 match on each side of pyramid…. reset the board. You’ll never get thru the level if you don’t have at least 2 (preferably 3) matches to gain immediate access into the pyramid. I got very lucky and had 4 immediate matches….. I had to reset the board about 15 times. On an iPhone.. you won’t lose any lives by resetting… as long as you don’t make ANY moves on the board your given. Good Luck!

  • Ivan Gough

    Hi yes we all have the same problems on different levels but I think it’s only a puzzle, it’s meant to challenge us ,sometimes after planing and plotting with no results I just go mad on the board making matches and hey presto it just falls into place ,but I know were your coming from it makes you pull your hair out sometime s happy candy crush!!

  • Barbara

    My question is, how can you get to the jellies if you don’t break the licorice? And, how do you reset? Does that mean close out the game and start over?

  • Barbara

    I just passed level 86 on my Kindle Fire. You don’t have to reset anything or pay anything. Just concentrate on the jellies at the bottom and clear them as soon as you can.

  • meher fatima

  • meher fatima

    I HATEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE THIS GAME WORSTTTTTTTTTTTTT GAME WORST CANDIES WORST COLOURBOMB WORSTJELLYFISH WORSTZEMO WORST COCONUT WORST LEVELS WORSTMOVES WORSTJACKPOT WORST JELLY

  • trilac

    If you clash a colored bomb with a wrapped candy, it converts all the candies on the board of the same color into wrapped candies and activates them. This way you clear heaps of candies at once.

  • JoColl

    There is no way to win this level 86. It is cruel that they designed this level to be impossible to solve. I’ve spent weeks on this level playing many hours each day. I’m good at this game. I make good moves. It is impossible to win! I’m giving up for good! A waste of my time.

    • lois

      I agree! It is no fun when it is impossible to win

      • JoColl

        I think it’s cruel for them to make this level impossible to win. I’ve been playing several times each day for over a month. It can’t be beat no matter what suggestions people give.

        • Biggest_Baddest_Wolf

          Actually, think about how/why the game was designed…
          The company behind it wants your money, that stuff gets them rock-hard, throw mucho dineros at a level and it will be beat.
          Or go the no-money route, and possibly (quite probably, as well) you’ll spend months on a level.
          It’s a game only in name; it’s a one-way money-sucking black hole in truth.

  • lois

    I’ve been stuck on 86 for 3 months, I’ve tried everything, except buying lives, I won’t do that. When u make it imposable to move on after 3 months
    forget it

  • JoColl

    I have been stuck on level 86 for 3 months. I play many hours each day. I’m telling you….. IT CANNOT BE BEAT!! No explaining of moves will help, because it is impossible to beat it. It has made me hate this game. A total waste of time. The creators are gruel to torture us like this! To make a level that is unbeatable! I am using an Android tablet.
