Candy Crush Saga level 1196

Hints and tips for level 1196 Candy Crush Saga
You need to clear the cakes and the best way to do that is with stripes and stripe/wrap combos, but the licorice will block your stripes so the first thing to do is clear some of the licorice so your combos are effective against the cake bombs.
Don't overlook the popcorn in the middle of the board, it's easy to miss while you are thinking about everything else on the board.

This is another hard level, but at least you can employ some strategy for a change.......................

Used a fish got 3. Got some good combos, used hand switch to put a wrap/stripe together. Fish helped a lot, got those hard to reach jellies

Impossible level. No fun at all. Boosters don't seem to help. Waiting for lucky board.

Not enjoying this level at all ... Only managed to clear the popcorn once in about 20 tries, same with the cakes

I agree. It is very challenging but I found it interesting and strategic.

Fun level. Second try with 11 moves to spare. Fish booster really helped.

After having to suffer through level 1193 as well as other horrible levels lately, I can't complain to much about this one. Atleast this one is not completely stupid and you have choices. And it is not 100% luck.

Well, I was getting sprinkles but now they are gone and the boards are really bad now. Great fantastic swell......sarcasm

Sigh...getting so tired of playing this level over and over. Why must you design such mundane levels?

I thought I must be missing something here - I just couldn't see how to do it, then I had a real breakthrough and got a sprinkle matched with a stripe which destroyed one cake - it was plain sailing after that.

If you are struggling - take heart. You will do it!

Haven't managed the level yet, but finally a level that is not pure luck. Finding the level enjoyable to play, and hopefully I will get it soon.

Hi all.

This board is driving me mad. I used all of my boosters as well as spending 25$ more to no avail.

Any secrets?

Fish bonus very useful in clearing the cakes quite enjoyable.

Enjoyable level, but hard, it took me days.
Ended up through, no boosters, but with much lower score than some tries where I never got through.

First, look to make special candies & clear the licorice.
You will probably need at least 2 colour ball/stripe combos.

If you get a choice, clear parts of the cake on the edges first as they seem harder to get than the inner bits.

For me, fish and colour ball boosters didn't make much difference (used fish alone then both, don't fall for combining fish with stripe or wrap either as the fish hits a licorice & you get no extra benefit.

Better to wait for the right board than bother with boosters. Should come along in 2-3 days.

I played this a few times today without even getting close. No stripe/wrap combos or stripe/sprinkles showing up at all. A couple of times I didn't even break a single piece of the cakes. I came here looking for tips, decided to try a fish booster and the second time got 4 fish, was able to use a lollipop early on to move a sprinkle ball next to a striped candy and it was game on! All kinds of sprinkles, stripes, wraps! I think it was mainly about getting lucky even though you need strategy to win. If you just aren't getting the chance to make any special candies there isn't much you can do but wait for a better board. GL all!

"Gosh the board in the video is a lucky one. Sprinkles just appear, can I have one of these too please as mine have been very disappointing so far" she says sarcastically....

Tedious. Fish don't help.

I got the first two hits on the popcorn. Then I had an opportunity to finish off the two cakes simultaneously with a stripe-wrap in the lower right. Even though I had plenty of moves left, I wasn't able to get another hit on the popcorn. Seemed like killing the bottom cake and opening things up introduced a lot of randomness every time the belt shifted. It kept destroying or shifting all my work.
Tried again just focusing on the popcorn. Had no problem making the h-stripes I needed to hit the popcorn. There are two layers of jelly under the popcorn. Destroying the c-bomb will take out one layer but leaves a jelly with no candy. You'll have to hit it with another stripe. I got a c-bomb stripe combo that took out everything except one wedge off the bottom cake. After trying for a few moves without success to get the stripe I needed, I hammered it. Can't do that with the popcorn. Only then did I get the stripe I needed earlier. Needed it anyway to blast the last jelly.
