Candy Crush Saga level 872

Tips for level 872 Candy Crush Saga

Please "LIKE" and "SHARE" ----->


You have 50 moves to collect 6 ingredients, 3 cherries and 3 nuts.
The ingredients drop from the dispensers at each end of the conveyor so in order for them to drop you need to make space for them by matching the candy under the dispenser.


You can either match directly under them, or make stripes and combos in the bottom half to get the ingredients to fall.
Once the ingredients are on the conveyor they will need to be brought down through the teleports into the main part of the board and out of the exits at the bottom. 
The moves you make in the bottom part of the board only affect the top part where the teleports are, so the ingredients have to be above them to be able to bring them down.
Remember to keep your eyes on the bombs, it's easy to forget about them when you are trying to get the ingredients to appear and they will kill the game fairly quickly.

The bombs are the killer this level.

Anonymous said...

The bombs are bad, but I also have problems getting all the fruit to drop, any ideas?

Anonymous said...

I can't get the fruit to drop! The first four appear and I clear them then I'm left with about 30 moves and no more fruit appear at all. Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug? If it doesn't get fixed I'm out of here. It seems unwinnable.

Anonymous said...

This seems to be the most difficult level yet. Not only does one have to contend with the bombs... but you have to get ingredients to drop 6 times. Very frustrating level. CC is getting out of hand on their difficult levels. It should be fun.

Tony said...

Have had around 10 goes at this so far. At first I thought it impossible,But I've found if you work on the bottom section you get plenty of combos and the bombs seem to take care of themselves (Just need to keep an eye on them) The fruit also drops during your play in the bottom section because of the combos you release. Just got down to needing 1 more order and had the move to drop it but I also had to remove a bomb so that was game over. Am confident I can get it though using the method I just described.

Tony said...

Just completed this using method I described above, got all ingredients with 11 moves to spare no bonus's used. Really not the hardest level in the game so far, there have been much harder so if you've got this far you will get this.

Anonymous said...

Still going with this one, but to get the fruit to drop you need to make matches under the first dropping point on the far left and the last dropping point on the far right. Bombs alone drop from the dropping points in the middle. I've not yet had a board where I can do much with the bottom half to work on the top bit :o/

Another ridiculous level.

Anonymous said...

This is just another one of those really annoying levels that for many turns you only have one option of moves to make. Pray for the lucky board and you make the right move every time.

Anonymous said...

I had about 15 moves left but the last fruit did not appear. No point in playing again until they fix the bug.

Anonymous said...

This level is impossible. I have tried everything without luck. I think it may have a bug that needs to be fixed. Guess I will wait until I hear that it has been fixed.

Anonymous said...

several times I have gotten down to two moves left and 4 fruit still have to come down....can't they fix this? I see other people have had the same problem.

Anonymous said...

There is NO bug people. The fruit will not drop until you clear the space under the fruit drop zones- at both ends of the conveyor belt. as mentioned in the blog to do this you have to either make a combo directly beneath them (on the conveyor belt) or use a strip or strip/wrapper or freckle with a strip to remove the candy under the drop zone.

Anonymous said...

I had no problem getting the fruit to drop...but when you get to needing one more fruit and it doesn't even appear,.,,there is the bug!

Anonymous said...

I just played this level and won it first time! Yes I know it was a lucky board because I'm usually on a level for days when others are struggling. I even got 3 stars. All fruits were dropped by getting combos on bottom. Good luck, it is possible!

Anonymous said...

I followed Tony's direction and got it first time with 3 stars. I'm thing that I must have gotten a REALLY lucky board!

Anonymous said...

P.S. I even had 22 moves left! Now that is one lucky board!

Anonymous said...

People -- just follow the tips! By doing so, it only took me like 3 tries and I got over 500k points!

dirty vegas said...

This would be an easy level if the last fruit dropped ,under the drop zone was clear ,22 moves left and still no last fruit ,over 500.000 scored to boot ,so am I doing something wrong ,where is the last fruit ?

dirty vegas said...

3 times now ive tried to get the last fruit .

Tony said...

dirty vegas, you have to clear the candy from either end of the conveyor to get the fruit to drop, I didn't have a problem at all with it not dropping once a space was created for it to drop into. I did find right at the start of the game if you cleared a space first move then it didn't drop, but once you start playing no problem with it. Mine was dropping and I wasn't even trying because I was making moves in bottom section that set off combos that were clearing spaces. Hope this helps.

Anonymous said...

This just might be the level that makes me quit and find a new game. No fun, just stress.

Anonymous said...

Lots of concentrating got this working on bottom with lots of stripes. Took me about 20 or so attempts. .just keep an eye on belt and get fruit out. I lined up fruits with stripes and they dropped easy. Bombs take care of themselves but u need to keep them under control. Gl

Anonymous said...

This is a frustrating level...so many bombs. Most times the bombs took me out. When I finally got got all the fruit down with last one one candy removed and a bomb ready to go off, I used a free lollipop hammer to take it out. Glad this one is behind me.

Jane said...

Do not like this level. Bombs get me every time. Haven't even come close. Used many lives!

kivany1056 said...

At first i thought this was impossible, then i focussed on clearing bottom of the board, once once bombs drop on the cleared bottom area they are easy to get rid of. as you clear bombs at bottom you get cascades which pulls cherry/nut down. 2 tries and i passed it. please note that after 3rd move the cherr/nut dispenser will release one every time you remove the color from underneath it. thoughtit was impossible, but with this method it was easy. next level was give away easy.

Jane said...

Have been trying your way. Clearing the bottom Bombs get me every time. Used up 20 lives this morning! Not even close. But I'll keep at it 😊

Anonymous said...

At first I thought I'd never get past this level, but I actually needed less than ten tries. I concentrated on releasing the wrapped candies and worked on the bricks without touching the candies beneath the teleports as long as possible, so no bombs would fall at all. When they finally did I had lots of space to deal with them. I didn't even care so much about the nuts. Consciously I only released two or three of them, the others just appeared. When the bricks are gone stripes and wraps are quite easy to form and that helped a lot to get the nuts out.
Good luck - Gabi

Jane said...

Hey, just passed, no boosters, two stars. Thanks for the tips of playing in bottom

Anonymous said...

I understand that a space has to be cleared under the dispenser for the fruit/nut to appear but several times I have done this and nothing has dropped, just a gap has been left. To those who patronisingly tell others that the fruits do drop - just because it hasn't happened to you, doesn't mean it hasn't happened to others. And while I'm at it - if you found a level easy, well, good for you, but you might just have got the lucky one early on, mightn't you? Also, if it's difficult and you feel like leaving CC you don't have to tell us, but I bet you won't give up: you've got to level 800 plus - you're hooked like the rest of us.

onlylisa said...

The best advice is to play the bottom of the board as much as possible being mindful of the bombs at the top. I got through using this strategy.

Anonymous said...

I play on mobile and the fruit does not drop if you play down the bottom for me - you have to create a space directly below the dispenser. I don't play on PC so there could be a difference, if this stays like this this level is not passable. Regards AJ

Anonymous said...

Yes, indeed, you have to create a space directly below a dispenser, but sometimes, not always, the fruit does not drop when I have done this. Some of the time there is then just a gap which later gets filled but some of the time no fruit appears at all.

Anonymous said...

I worked it out, had to use a hammer on a bomb, regards AJ

Anonymous said...

JanC here gang! Another 3 star 1st attempt!! Gang, this isnt a dificult level whatsoever. Use a few boosters if need be and follow the tips of the blogger and myself and youll pass in a jiffy!

Anonymous said...

JanC here! Just use a hand to swap if need be! Not that dificult my friend!

Anonymous said...

Tony, thank you for the tip about working on the bottom. after several tries it helped me pass the level.

Anonymous said...

JanC here. You may hear from my troll but looks like you won't be hearing from me for awhile: this level's a doozy!

Jocelyn said...

Hated this level and the never ending bombs but finally got through with 3 stars, no boosters

Van5 said...

Got the closest on my first try. One fruit left. One away from the bottom...ugh. Refuse to pay for anything. Haven't yet, and I wont. No hammers left either. Ever since, the bombs get me every time. Working at the bottom seems to be the best way to go otherwise you're chasing bombs the whole time. I will persevere. Hopefully a lucky board soon.

Van5 said...

Colour bombs seemed to work best paired with a stripe. Colour bomb killing the colour under the dispenser will also bring down the fruit. Finally got it after about 25 tries. Happy to get 3 stars. More explosions kill the bombs. I didn't start unless there was a move in the bottom. Piddling around the top is a waste of moves!

Anonymous said...

JanC back: lost count of how many lives it took, but passed with three stars, no boosters, on an android tablet. What I needed was learning how the level worked through practice, trial & error, calming down enough to observe ... Then, I started to get closer (at first, I was at best getting one or two ingredients through). A tip that worked for me was to check before each move first to see if there was a match to be made at either end of the top strip. If not, then try to make a special down below. That helped me. Bombs make me frantic so I miss the smart move. That was hardest to overcome: overreacting to bombs.

Anonymous said...

Level is proving to be a difficult one. Got down to 1 fruit on my 1rst try that was 1 spot from the bottom and ran out of moves. Since don't seem to get more than 3 down. Oh we'll gotta keep at it.

Anonymous said...

Finally got it. Just go slow and watch for moves on the top row. Eventually you will get lucky like some of us. Good luck all.

Anonymous said...

JanC here! Ignore my troll please.

Ellie.H said...

The advice about using the bottom section to create combos is good. Look at the portals every move to get a match to drop the fruit and keep an eye on the bombs. Got in a few go's.

Cat said...

I also thought there was a bug, but on my Ipad, after Tony and with thanks, all worked well. Except for once, when I too got a gap instead of fruit.
It took many tries and always resetting the opening board for moves in the bottom section. Using choc ball on whatever color candy was at the ends worked, along with specials. Good luck all.

Anonymous said...

I soooooo dislike those bombs!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Impossible!!!!!

Finally made it by working the bottom, good advice. Ended it all with a free lollipop hammer. Hope following levels won't be as hard as the last few ones. Good luck eveybody.

What a detestable level. Bombs get me every time. Love how everyone who has passed makes it seem so easy. Posting for luck and waiting on a good board. This is getting tiresome.

Anonymous said...

Hi it's Kath... I thought this was gonna take forever.. But into the 2nd day, combos all seemed to work, fruit dropped down, and DONE... No boosters used....with several moves left...

Anonymous said...

To the person who said there is no bug on this level when the fruit doesn't drop - YES THERE IS! I agree with the person who said just because you haven't experienced it doesn't mean it isn't there. It's hard enough without having a glitch. I understand perfectly how this level works. I didn't get here by being stupid.

Charlotte said...

I was being a bit dumb and thought you had to make vertical stripes to get the ingredients down, I didnt realise you only had to switch candy below the portal to get them down. Quite a clever level!

Anoniem said...

Another horrible level, I cannot controll the bombs, too many....
I think it is time to quit this game!

Anonymous said...

JanC here! Gang..... Just focus on taking out the bombs and the rest falls into place! Simple and free advice, eh?

Anoniem said...

Thanks for your advice, JanC !!
First try after reading your tips and 27 moves left...

Anonymous said...

I went through all 50 moves.....not one cherry or nut in sight. Really? How am I suppose to beat this level? --CG

Anonymous said...

Well I think that's it for me until they nerf this level.

Basically it's all tedious firefighting with the bombs whilst waiting, usually in vain, for a match that will allow the ingredients to fall.

It's just too boring- I might as well watch some paint dry instead!

Anonymous said...

JanC here! Your quite welcome my dear fellow crusher!!

Bill. said...

Got the jackpot with the bonus wheel!!

Managed with the aid of coconut wheel and one hammer. Very difficult to get fruit to drop initially must look at every move. Bombs not a big problem.

Anonymous said...

c/candycrush here.

Very hard level. I usually bombed out (literally) with over 30 moves still to go.

Some of my findings.

* Although the aim is to make a match at the top at either end in order to get a fruit to drop, don't bother even trying if you see a match on your FIRST move. For some reason, no fruit drops then.

* Watch carefully for end matches after that, though.

* A coconut wheel didn't help me much. I used a few boosters, including coconut wheel and colour ball, about 4 or 5 times and some of those games were worse than when I used nothing. Unlike some other levels, the system didn't send me multiples. I got one wheel or one colour ball and that was it, except in one game where a second wheel came down on my last turn so was no help. Look, it may help you, but only if you can keep the bombs at bay long term & that ain't easy.

* The best advice I can give is if you do get a good board, as I just did, and you get the last piece of fruit down close to the bottom, this is one level where it is well worth lashing out and using a lollipop hammer to get through.

Anonymous said...

Many times all I needed was the last cherry or bomb and had lots of openings for one to drop but it just won't fall. So my conclusion is that it will be pure luck if I ever get through this level. TOO many bombs. I won't pay the scum bags either.

Anonymous said...

Terrible level. Very sad that I have to spend weeks/months on another ridiculous level. Of course I won't say good-bye to Candy Crush, having reached this level, that is not going to happen! But.....that being said, the comments for help aren't helping this time. I tried working from the bottom but the bombs don't "take care of themselves" I don't need 50 moves in this level, because the bombs take care of me by 30-35 moves. Seldom gotten past that. Getting the fruit to fall is WAY TOO HARD!! Please fix this level!! I beg of you!!!1

Anonymous said...

WAY TOO MANY BOMBS!!!!!!! I think I might finally have to throw the towel in, this level is no fun at all!

kfmconsulting said...

Took several tries to figure out how the ingredients fall at the top. Make combos in the bottom when you can and keep an eye on the bombs. In general they take care of themselves, but not always. Lost several lives because of the bombs. Finally got it on phone, no boosters, 3 stars.

Anonymous said...

I didn't mind this one. It's quite challenging and I had to play a good number of times, losing out to bombs. But on only my third go I came within one move of winning (no hammers or hand swaps alas!) so that encouraged me. But it's a level that repays thought and skill, not just reliant on luck (although luck, as always, has a part to play). I concentrated on the bottom panel, watching for the crucial matches up top to release the fruit, and looking out for the bombs. Good luck - it's doable. - Eva

Anonymous said...

Interesting, I made way over 400,000 and had 4 fruit never appear. Yet, the example shows them all falling and done with 17 moves left. What is with that. What makes the fruit show up? Is there a special combo to get them down???? That is not in the clues??? Frustrating.

Anon lafy said...

Wow! I must have hit lucky because I've just done it and a bomb was on zero! I got two sprinkle/stripe combos which did the trick. No problem on my iPad with fruits not appearing. Two stars, but that isn't important.

1derfool said...

Sprinkle bomb/stripe combos seem to be the only way to get close to beating this one. Levels like this with all of the bombs do not encourage me to use or buy boosters because they will likely be wasted!. I guess they expect we will buy extra moves to end our misery if the game finally lets us get close to winning.

1derfool said...

Finsihed!Got a lucky board after posting.

Anonymous said...

Deborah here. I have been on this for three days and thought it was impossible after reading many of the tips. This afternoon, I read ALL of them and Eva's tip was the best. I concentrated in getting the candies unfrozen and kept an eye on the bombs. Once the bottom was open, I did get more combos. Ended up with 3 stars and no boosters after the 1st try using Eva's tip.

Crushed said...

Used 10 lives and have yet to make it past 20 moves. Bombs get on edges and naturely no way to remove them.
Another board where it appears you have to have way more luck than skill.

Anonymous said...

So there are six ingredients to bring down, and my first ingredient dropped when I had five moves left. I'm no math expert but that equation doesn't seem likely to result in success, not to mention remotely fair. Ridiculous.

Liz said...

Striped/wrapped and sprinkle/striped are the best help in this level. Do think you need a cooperative board, however, to make them. Also helps to open up the bottom wrapped candies to make those combos. Hang in there!

Tracy Wells said...

This is what happens to me too. We didn't get this far into the game without being able to determine if we had cleared the fruit below it. Empty space that eventually gets filled when it moves across. And it keeps happening. No way to do it if the fruit won't drop when you clear that spot

Ugh! I feel claustrophobic in this level.

Wow, I must have been very lucky. Got it in one go and without boosters. And with 612 860 points. Just pure luck. Grace from down Under.

Is anyone else having issues with the ingredients? I am playing this level on Facebook version and I have collected all three hazelnuts and the fruit dispenser at the top keep giving me more hazelnuts and no cherries! And when I get the extra hazelnuts down to the bottom, they don't count towards the ingredients!! This game is seriously f***ing me!

Anonymous said...

I've tried focusing on the bombs and not focusing on the bombs. It seems that if I don't focus on them, I end up with one that is about to go off that I can't reach. Think this one may have more to do with luck than skill. So I await the lucky board!

Anonymous said...

I agree with Anonymous, July 9. I even wrote to King about the anomalies in the game. One set, I got to 7 moves left before I saw any ingredients on the conveyor belt. Another, the bombs would appear with less than 12 tries (2? really?). I had the same problem with the board giving me more ingredients of one kind and none of the other. Their advice was a lengthy process of uninstalling, clearing cache from both the browser and flash, rebooting - all to no avail.

Arghhhhhh this level is a bummer! 30 tries and still not there. I've worked out how the fruit come out and to keep the bombs at bay by working at the bottom but it's hard going 😖😵

Sam Last name said...

At last finally did it!! The only advice I can give is to reset the board everytime you don't get a good few moves at the bottom. Then each time you make a move see if you can make a move directly under each fruit portal. I found going really slow and concentrating won me this level. Glad it's over!!!

Anonymous said...

This level is terrible!!! I only get 2 nuts and a lot of cherry's.

Angelina Gerster said...

Great advice. After reading this I was able to pass first time. Thanks :-)

Anonymous said...

There is a glitch on 872! After trying this about 10 times I finally was going to get it, I had all the cherries, but the apples never showed up...just more cherries!

Anonymous said...

I meant nuts not apples!

Anonymous said...

Getting the fruit to drop is a pain in the neck. However I've discovered that making colour bombs helps, because then you can target the colours currently blocking the exit. Also strips directly under the exit are good, or combined with wraps. This seems to be easier than waiting to make colour matches at the top. Hope this helps. Once the fruit it out it's pretty straight forward.

Anonymous said...

Nasty level. Hard to get the last 2 fruit to drop as not many moves can be made to do this. VERY frustrating to get that far & no hope of getting it each time :(

Tish said...

OMG, OMG, OMG.

Elizabeth Macklen said...

I have played 50+ games and not even come close. I am about ready to admit defeat. There are too many bombs and if by some stroke of luck I get one fruit down (yea) I'm lucky. Horrible level and you never get those combos in the vid.

Anonymous said...

This is the most stupidest level so far!

I was struggling with the level, and all of a sudden, after losing again, I was bumped up to next level. Has this happened to anyone else??

haganmd said...

I have several screen shots documenting the technical problem I'm encountering on level 872... I'm not sure I can send the pics but the first one is showing that with 15 moves left out of 50, I only have one ingredient with no others showing at all but a score of 367060...
In the 2nd one I'm down to five moves left, a score of 448440 nothing else showing that I can collect... No doubt in my mind there is a major glitch on this level... I've pretty much wasted all of my freebies bonuses since the ingredients won't fall... Not sure what to do about this one... I sent in a ticket to King... We'll see...

Anonymous said...

Just completed this on second try. No boosters or specials. I was very lucky on this one. Very lucky board!
