On any untimed level of Candy Crush, you can reset your board before you make any moves. If you don’t like the set-up, tap out to the main menu and then tap back into that Candy Crush level. The board will be different and you won’t lose any lives. Click on the link above for instructions on how to reset your board. More >>


3. Always look for special candies.

Special candy moves are always better than the basic 3 candy match. There are three types of special candies in Candy Crush Saga: striped candy, wrapped candy, and color bomb. Learn how to make all the Candy Crush special candies.


4. Special Candy Combos are the best moves to make.

You can combine any two special candies to make a special candy combo. Each special candy combo has a different effect, and they are all very helpful in helping you beat each level of Candy Crush. Here are all theCandy Crush Special Candy Combos.

5. Remove blockers first.

Clear the squares with the blockers first. By matching candies in and near the blocked squares you will be able to complete the level within the set number of moves. Be wary of any blocked squares on odd corners of the board, as they will be more difficult to remove, so try to get rid of them first. For more on  in-game obstacles and blockers, check out this site.


6. Don’t always use suggested moves

If you get stuck and don’t make a move for a certain amount of time, the game will provide a hint for you in the form of candies flashing. Only use this move if you can’t spot any else.

7. Take a look of the entire board and plan out your first moves before randomly matching.


Remember: What are the objectives? Is this a timed level, how many moves do you have, are your ingredients already on the board?

  • Ted Lee

    • Fran Murphy

      Just exactly what do u do to get another board without loosong a turn?

      • Ted Lee

        Just hit back on your phone before you mark any moves. If you can’t do that, press the bottom left menu button and endthe level. KEEP IN MIND YOU CANNOT HAVE MADE ANY MOVES

    • Jessie G

      Love this tip. Nope doesn’t work for times levels.

    • Heather Martin-Pena

      The only problem with that is if you exit the game before you finished you’ll lose a life

      • Ted Lee

        …… thats why the tip is for “BEFORE starting a level”. just so you know.

    • Maureen

      Let’s just say…..I need to get a life…or live the one I own!

  • Sandi Wimmer

    245 is a joke. Stuck all week. Tried at least 100 times between pc and phone. Mystery candys more often deterrents rather than useful candy. If a useful piece is discovered, it’s usually wrapped…really??? Are the developers laughing at the rantings of people posting their frustrations? Statagizing is useless since stripes and wraps are usually blown away. Color bombs are useless. This might be the level that leads to the end of the saga for me. This used to be a fun, relaxing distraction from an otherwise hectic, stressful day. I don’t need more aggravation.

  • Patrick Murtha

    level 153.fix the whole nearly impossible thing.color bomb plus color bomb?done it before but its hard

  • Maureen

    Never going to pass level 140…SOS

  • Maureen

  • Jessie G

Today I accidentally clicked ‘connect to facebook’ and it went 100 levels back, where I was the last time I was connected! Ahh so annoying. Please tell me there’s a way to disconnect from FB and get back to my level….

    • Candy Crush Cheats

      Ouch, I’m not sure if you can. Are you still stuck at old levels?

      • Jessie G

        I am. :-P But I just started playing connected to FB anyways. It just sucks to have went back literally 100 levels. Such a bummer.
