Candy Crush Saga Level 1266

How to pass level 1266
Hints and tips for level 1266 by Allina Rumfelt
 Loads of lucky and in some cases unlucky candies.   Pretty cut and dry to pass but takes a little bit of work to get 3 stars.   Once the popcorn starts to give up the chocolate bombs do several chocolate bomb / chocolate bomb combos to clear the board as quickly as possible.  Once you get down to your last couple chocolate bombs try to get some chocolate bomb/wrap combos to get a higher score if your going for stars.

Managed this on the third try. It's similar to one I use for sugar drops. This would be a great one for sugar drops too! Don't worry about the chocolate. It really doesn't have much of a chance to spread. I concentrated on making specials and trying to line them up with the popcorns. Did manage to get 2 chocolate bombs together as well as a chocolate bomb/ stripe combo twice. Fun level. Just keep making specials and they will blow up everything. Good luck everyone!

The blog seems to have disappeared after this. For level 1257 just use a fish booster. Don't need to get the frog. Thought I had to clear the whole left side, but it's just the 9 jellies. The fish appeared 3 times taking 3 jellies each, and presto! You're done. I was surprised to see sugar crush! But that's all it is. 3 stars no problem. Just make stripes and wraps and work your way into the cream. Good luck everyone!

After about 15 mind numbing tedious games I finally got 1258. Tried starting with a colour bomb but that was a waste so I stopped. Just combos to break the cakes. After the second cake is broken, you get all your yellows. On to the next one. Good luck everyone. Hope the blog appears again soon!

Got 1259 on the first try. Used a coconut wheel by mistake (I had left it checked from the last time I used it). It appeared 3 times. Cleared the chocolate, and cleared the cream on the right side twice. Filled the frog and dropped him in the middle of the cherries and down they came. Made some combos on the left and the cherries all exited. Was worried because this was a hard level but the wheel totally did the trick! Good luck everyone! I keep looking for the blog, but haven't seen it again yet.

Used a fish booster two times on level 1257. Both times I only got one fish. What a rip off!

Van5 - I'm currently on level 1258 and I've been looking for the blog too. But thanks so much for your posts above, very helpful tips! Pam

I play on an iPad. I was getting only one fish which did no good. So I begin with all three boosters available. As soon as I opened up the left side, more fish appeared. Three stars.

Level 1259 is supposed to be a hard level but I found it easy. Got it on my first try no boosters. Got stripes and stripe/wraps to clear out two hit blockers on the right. When frog filled up I set it in middle of cherries and they all dropped into bottom. After that it is just making moves on left to drop them out.
Hoping this blog will return soon.

1260 is just perseverance. Took me about 8 tries. Just waited for the right board with lots of combos appearing. Didn't think any of the boosters would be of any use, so I played it straight and eventually the lucky board came. Good luck everyone! Where is that blog???

Van5 said...

Somehow I got 1261 first try. No idea how. Cherry comes from the top left to the top right to the bottom fight, through the teleport and then out the bottom left. Somehow got a colour bomb in the bottom right which opened up that side. Made as many combos as I could and pushed the cherry down. I was very lucky that when the cherry exited I had not one row of cream cleared and it fell through that! I tried it again and didn't get it. I'm thinking that a coconut wheel might help here. Good luck everyone! And you're welcome Pam. Hoping someone else will post some tips for 1262. It looks brutal!

Van5 said...

Ugh. Need to proof read! That should have said that I only had one block of cream cleared on the bottom left which the cherry happened to fall through.

Van5 said...

Well finally managed to get past 1262. I used a coconut wheel as I have 100 of them...lol. It was a big help to clear some of the bombs and cream. I waited until the licorice was clear before I set it off. In the game I won, it appeared twice. Once I made some space below, I was able to make some matches to get the cherries off the conveyor. That seemed o be the big problem for me. I had no moves below and the cherries would go back on the conveyor up top. I always watched for specials to be made up top which would shoot down and clear the way for the fruit. I gave up making wraps as I could never get them beside a stripe, or if I did, they would blow up before I could use them. I found vertical stripes the most useful. Made one colour bomb which I used at the end to whack the colour under the last cherry. Never could figure out matches on the conveyor. My mind doesn't work that way...lol it was just dumb luck when I could make stripes up top. Cherries go down the teleport on the left side and appear on the conveyor on the right. I tried to set up a match that I could use when the cherry came along the bottom conveyor. Good luck everyone! Still looking for that blog!

Second try for 1263. First time the bombs got me. Second time I managed a stripe/wrap combo at the bottom left which cleared the jelly from the bombs. Set off the saucer and the ensuing explosion killed the other bomb. Made combos and the cascades from them mostly cleared the board. Good luck everyone! Hope the blog comes back soon.

Van5 said...

A one else about? Took me quite a few tries for 1264. Found the frog more of a hindrance than a help, so as soon as he was full I moved him into a corner. Finally got my lucky board. Two wraps together just clears amazing amounts of licorice! No idea what the pattern is as to when and where the cherries fall. Ended up clearing most of the board. Used a colour bomb twice on single colours that were blocking the fruit. Onwards we go! Good luck everyone! Still looking for the blog......

Van5 said...

First try for 1265. 2 stars only but that's ok. Stripe/ wrap combos seem to work the best to clear the licorice . Fish are very good about getting the top jellies. Also vertical stripes. Whatever I could manage as well as matches at the top. Good luck everyone! Cake challenge got me some more boosters, but don't change the date on that one or you will lose it. I learned that the hard way! Now to wait until Wednesday for some new levels. Hopefully the blog will be back for the new levels. It's very helpful!

@van, how do you get 100's of coconut wheels?

Apparently this is now the "Van 5" blog.
To the rest of us on mobile devices tomorrow is Wednesday and the day of new levels!
Good luck to everyone.

I for one am grateful that van5 and anyone else even bothers to post here...doubtful we'd be this far without these awesome tips

Where are the tips for level 1266? All of these are for the last episode.

Got this on my second try. With only 25 moves and all those popcorns I thought it would take many tries. Finished with three stars, no boosters.
First time I was playing in the upper part and chocolate took over from a mystery candy.
Next try I started playing in the bottom and got three wraps from mystery candies and because the popcorn is so close they helped a lot. After the popcorn turned into chocolate bombs I got two side by side three times and swiping them pretty much cleared the board except for three jellies. Good luck. I play on Android.

I don't know how all my comments ended up here on 1266. This page was non-existent when I posted all the above. It was posted on 1256. Also I get all the coconut wheels and boosters from the sugar drops. When I'm not working I do the sugar drops twice a day if I have time. You generally get about 10 boosters per sugar drop episode. I haven't passed the one yet. My comment was for 1256. Puzzling.....
I would like to see some tips myself! I end up with chocolate and bombs on this one!

Van5 said...

Well after about 20 tries, I finally got the lucky board. I seriously think this one is all about luck. Most of the time my mystery candies were chocolate and bombs, which for lack of moves always killed my game. I decided to use a fish booster which I really don't think did any good. Once the board cleared somewhat, I just kept knocking colour bombs together u til it finally cleared the board. I didn't bother to match any wraps, as Im not concerned about the number of stars I get. I don't think there are any tips for this level other than a lucky board! Good luck everyone!

Terrible level. Terrible!!!

Anon lafy said...

I got this first time by switching sprinkles together three times. They cleared the board apart from two candies which were reachable. Thank goodness for boosters!

Newme07 said...

One of the keys to this level is to use a chocolate sprinkle on the predominant color encased in that glaze and go from there.

Bill. said...

Need a bit of luck to avoid chocolate explode any chocolate bombs asap with the most common colour jelly then cascades take over.

Lucky me said...

Was struggling with 1266 until I read this blog thanks, started with a colour bomb (thanks sugar drops) and switched it with the predominant colour then just kept switching two colour bombs together until cleared.

Thanks, wasted my extra moves!

How you can pass this one, I am blowed if I know!!! The game is still reshuffling due to crap moves with only 10 to go.....not a chance in hell of getting 2 sprinkles next to each other,in fact mot of the games played o far, I am damned lucky to evn start breaking the cream. I am sure they reprogram levels to make them harder for the dumb asses like me who come along later just to suck us in to paying for extras. I refuse to give any more money & would sooner quit this game all together now!!!!!

GC said...

Got this on the second try. The first try I got beat by a bomb. It was a fun level for a change and I had no problem setting off the two sparkles together more than once.

Good luck everyone

The first time I played this level, I thought, "Oh good a fun level". Boy was I wrong. I've played at least 20 times, and on maybe 3 of those I got enough sprinkles to pair 2 of them together, but still wasn't able to pass. Most of the time I get nowhere - bombs, chocolate, blockers, shuffle and reshuffle - not really much fun for a level that is not even rated hard.
