Candy Crush Saga Level 1710

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 1710 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
It it very important that you break through the blockers on the bottom left of the board, this will allow the candies to move into the middle where the extra time candies are.
If you can make matches in the middle do it, but the shape of the board makes this very difficult most of the time, so try to make matches in the bottom left, which will keep the candies moving and cause cascades. Cascades will give you more extra time candies.
You need to keep a keen eye out for chances to make stripes and especially colour bombs as these will enable you to collect the extra time candies from the middle and will also make more cascades, which means more extra time.
You need a good start to get through the blockers quickly, without that you will have little chance of getting anywhere near the score.
A colour bomb booster may help, or a stripe/wrap booster, but since little of the board has candies the colour bomb won't give a lot of points, but it may help to clear the blockers and unlock the extra time candies.

Good advice. No point in using boosters, when the timer runs out it can add 20,000 points or thereabouts to your score I got to 45.000 and bought some time with my accumulated gold bars. Waste of time when the timer runs out you get no extra points, One of those games that just happens,took me a day(not so bad)finished with a score just short of a 100,000.The rest arn't to hard.

Anonymous said...

Whatever you do, if you're not that close to 50,000 don't bother using your gold bars for extra time. Matches are few and far between, and you don't receive any more extra time candies. Ugh.

Kevin said...

No way of doing this without a good dollop of luck. Been trying for a day and a half and nearest I've got is 42000.

Lucia said...

I got to 48000 or thereabouts and bought extra time to pass. I would have been stuck on this level forever otherwise. I'm lousy at timed levels, but this one is especially evil. (Yes, I've read the timed-levels page. I still can't do them.)

OK CC, we all get it, you da man. We got to 1710 but now we get to endlessly try and squeeze out 3 color bombs on a timed board with only 4 possible row/columns of 5, and the cascades running diagonal at a snails pace, not to mention jelly locked +5 seconds which is totally random if you can manage to unlock them.

So we play it over and over again, wow, looks like no additional +5 candies again. Totally random crap. So yeah, you got me, I'm stuck here for 7 days now, whoop dee doo.

Anonymous said...

I just can't figure out a way to get past this one. Had a choc ball/wrapped on the last try, still didn't come remotely close. Just don't know what to do.......

A nightmare level - one of the hardest i have come across! Finally got through with a lucky board and using gold bars for extra time.

Maryann Enge said...

I think I am seriously done with this one. The highest I've gotten was less than 30K. Done Done Done. There are no boosters that can help with this one unless you keep buying extra time and I don't even think that will help!

אראל שטוסל said...

Thanks for strategy tips. Prioritised hitting +5 seconds instead of waiting for them to explode as wrapped candies at the end of the game. Got a more or less lucky board with 47,780 points at the end. Bought more time and thankfully finished it. Your blog with its tips and comments is invaluable. Keep up the good work.

Hang in there! I played so many times without coming close and FINALLY got the lucky board.

Anonymous said...

while the cascads fall the clock keeps ticking. By the time it stops the time is almost up... this is going to take forever!

Anonymous said...

The color bombs don't help at the beginning of the level as there are only few candies on the board (I wasted several bombs this way...). Finally, I used hand switches to make 3 color bombs when the board was full of candies. This pushed the score to 70k. It took 4 hand switches, but it was certainly worth it!

Thresa Muglich said...

After using all of my lives on the Tablet (never even close to 50,000) I switched to the laptop and past on the 2nd try ! This seems to happen a lot, easier on one format that another. Moving on.

Anonymous said...

Thank you Thresa, did the same thing, switched to iMac computer via Facebook and passed second attempt. That after 25 tries on the iPad and not even close. Hate those timed levels. Good advice.

After 1710 episodes, I've finally felt the need to post here. Thank you all for your tremendous help over the nightmarish levels we've played along the way. This one almost did me in. In all seriousness, you truly have to play it 50+ times until you wear it out. Others call it waiting for the lucky board. Pay your dues (as CC needs to show games being played). PC did it for me, as I wasted so many lives, and for the first time ever, used 25 gold bars, it did nothing, then I just waited it out. I love the game and am always wondering when and what they'll do to "challenge" us toppers (those who've played the game this long). Good Luck all, as it only gets worse (or better as I like to call it). Brainfood.

I dreaded this game as it is a time game, but got it in the first try. WOW. Maybe time to buy a Lotto ticket. Hope springs eternally.

This is not fun--I dread timed levels. This one is probably the worst. I don't think CC is fun anymore. I'm seriously addicted but its getting really boring.

CC from vero said...

I wasted some boosters thinking I could change the outcome but got nowhere so I played regular- won with just a lucky board. It'll come when King gives it to you😁

Gary Moss said...

I hate this level it stinks

Cat said...

Got tired of going through many lives waiting for the lucky board, so when I got a game in the 20,000s somewhere, I made use of some of the accumulated gold bars. It was worth the three shots to be done. Better luck to you all.

Boring and aggravating

Wondering if level has been nerfed? Never came closer than 30k then this afternoon got 49k, so of course I used 9 free gold bars and ended up just over the 50k. Good riddance!

My husband, who doesn't play CC, was watching me play this level said it isn't fair that time ticks down during cascades. I agree. JS

Just posting for luck. I too don't think it's fair that the clock ticks while it's cascading. It uses up most of the precious seconds.

Probably took me at least 30 tries for this one. Managed a colour bomb/ wrap combo twice which boosted up my score. Just kept trying to hit those +5 candies and I finally got through. Two stars only but so glad to be done. I'm no good at times levels. Was just waiting for the lucky board and it finally came! Good luck everyone!

This is looking so absurd !!! When does one get the lucky board ???? Does it mean goodbye King ?!!!

My biggest problem with getting stuck on this level is that it's incredibly boring. Also, it's unfair that the candies don't cascade faster. Most of the time gets eaten up because of that.

posted a day or so ago....still no luck....twice the sugar crush put me within about 3,000 pts....but when it started I was at like 5,000 points....and on my devices....sugar crushes are worth nothing but extra time candies drop....just not nearly enough...there are never any "Good" moves...in one game once it offered me a color ball...but I have matched them with stripes and wraps....few points come from that....best I have figured out is the sugar crushes are better the more extra time candies you have left....but they have to be unblocked first. disgusted with this one beyond disgust. said before...have a couple non-King games I like...spending a LOT more time on those these days. this is just stupid. either they are ridiculously easy or impossible. not really interested anymore at this point.

It's been over a week now stuck here on 1710. Come close ONCE early on wit 48000. Wish I had used gold bars for extra time. Haven't even come close enough to risk them since. This truly stinks. Why would they do this, make such an impossible challenge? I'm getting close to ending this goofy addiction.

Went and played on PC - passed first time despite not even knocking a single jellied +5 out from the middle and not a single combo!- at the end it just kept cascading and reached the 2* score!!! - now stuck on 1711 :-(

Another miracle board required. The timer should pause when a cascade happens, time wasted. Does anyone know how to get IPhone and IPad to update to current levels? My laptop show the most recent but not the other two even though they connect to Facebook when I load the game.

Totally stuck on this level. I can't see any possibility of me passing it as the highest I have managed so far is 32,000. I even asked my son to have a go as he is good at timed games but he couldn't do it either. I will give it one more day and then it is goodby to CC. Such a pity as I enjoy it but I can't spend my life attempting this silly and frustrating level.

In the video Cookie hits a color bomb with just a colored candy and gets 12,000 to 20,000 points. I've done this several times but I don't ever get the amount of. Points for it that she does. Have no idea how she gets over 90,000 points. I've watched video several times. I just don't understand this level.

CC you just lost a customer! This board is nothing but luck - boring at that, now that we are at the 1700 level all you want to do is get us to spend money which i do not have a problem for puzzled challenging levels but timed "luck of the board level" is not worth my money...This is obviously why many people have given up on CC...Kind of like when Ms Pac Man took over pong...hire some new devlopers....Good BYE

I find these levels very frustrating when there is no tactic or skill involved, just waiting for the 'lucky board'. I have not paid for any boosters and I do not intend to start now.

68,080 after three weeks of trying. No idea what I did to pass. Definitely just a lucky board. The worst level EVER!!!

Nineteeneightyfourr said...

After literally wasting two hours unlimited lives from a treasure chest yesterday, I revisited it today and I got my lucky board. Really was just a case of making matches in the lower left of the board to encourage specials and time candies to fall up on the right. In the final moments, 2 speckle balls formed so I left them to detonate during the crush at the end and finished with 2 stars. Onward and upward.

There have been some pretty lame levels but this one takes the cake so far. You need to do it on the PC to come anywhere close to finishing. Mobile versions I have not cracked 30k. Challanges or ok, but this is lame. Does King think I would want to try any of its other games after playing crap like this ? Not likely...

2 moves, reshuffle, no more possible matches. WTF King!!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Hi, Tchaik here. This is another useless level. After several plays, used a choc bomb booster and the board placed it in a position where using it had absolutely no chance of causing anything to happen. Then it shuffled the board, then ended my game with "no more possible moves". I resent that. Deeply. What if I'd paid for boosters (I won't, ever)? To pay and still have no chance to play - that's out of order.

Struggled for days on my phone and tablet. Nowhere near. Tried the PC and hit it first time with no real effort. Just 1 star but given I'd expected to fail badly as it was a short game I'm happy enough. The board just went into a massive cascade and rolled the points over.

Finally!!! Used a chocolate ball and was very careful not to use the extra 5 second candies around the 60 minutes, because they are just wasted, the time never goes over 60 seconds. I also bought 15 extra seconds at the end. Now on to other levels, a thought I didn't think possible for a long time. Good luck everyone.

Aggie said...

After trying this level for days on end I finally discovered the key to passing it. I was lucky enough to make two sprinkle candies but I didn't use them. At the end they exploded and added probably 20k points each pushing me well over the needed 50,000. Good luck to all!

Wish King would post the most recent comments first and not ones from months back.....anyway I just wanted to say this is a boring level. You are so limited in what moves you can make. I've made it into the 40,000 range a couple of times but DO NOT waste gold bars by buying extra five minutes as I got one move in before my time ran out. I'll give it a few more tries then give up and stick to my Pyramid Solataire as there you have to plot your moves and not depend on the so called "lucky board". The fun has gone out of this game and I'm surprised so many of us stuck it out this far. MS

Posted for luck yesterday and got it this morning. Only one star, but after that many tries, I'll take it. Someone earlier posted about getting a color bomb and not using it. That did the trick for me. When it blew up, after time ran out, it blew me into the first star. Game over... thank God.

Spent ages on this level both on PC and iPad. Wasted lots of bonuses. But just passed - thanks to tip above. It was a lucky board - got to about 30K (most times I'm way below 20K) and then got a sprinkle which I kept until time ran out (at which point I'd got to 35K) and the sprinkle then gave me 16K!

Candy Thompson said...

Why is CandyCrush STILL CHEATING? Hasn't anyone even noticed that while the candies are falling the timer is still taking your seconds away? The whole time the candies are falling you can't make anymore moves until they STOP falling...but the seconds are STILL ticking away...how UNFAIR is that?

Where is the strategy when your moves are limited to one spot on the board??? Send a lucky board so I can get out of this horrible level!

Sonia said...

I absolutely know the trick to passing this level! Just like a few levels in the past! The trick is to have chocolate balls on the board when the time runs out. The trick is to not use them if one is created for you. I know it's hard to not want to use them but by leaving them, they bump your score tremendously after the time runs out. I've known this trick but it's hard to do bc you end up needing to use the chocolate ball bc of no more moves. However, after playing this level a week, I finally did it! I luckily ended up with three chocolate balls on the board at the end, let the time run out with only 12,000 points and ended up with over 76,000 points! I also used my 5 second times, they are needed to prolong the game so use them! Good luck!

Anon said...

Grrr this level is the pits. I tried leaving chocolate sprinkle on board, using both boosters, getting extra time... all it does is deplete your stock of boosters for games where they help. Cannot crack it. Just keep playing CC for 5 mins at a time before being locked out and waiting till I can play another 5 mins!!! The lucky board is few and far between on this level and as a poster mentioned previously whingeing does nothing to fix this!! Just vents frustration!!!

I've been on level 1710 for 7 or more weeks. I just can't get it. A time or two, I've come close but not enough. It's the hardest level. I say it's impossible to win. I've read all the hints and still can't get it.

GC said...

This seems to be the worst timed level so far. It doesn't help that you're losing seconds waiting for the candy to settle. I checked whilst it was happening and lost 10 seconds. They should freeze the timer the same way they do when it's shuffling. All we can do is keep trying until we get good combos to get the score at the end. Although I did try what another poster suggested, to start off with a sparkle and leave it if you can. But unfortunately mine had to be used everytime because there were no available moves.

Oh well try again.

This one is challenging, but my tip is to go for the striped/wrapped combos and let the +5s take care of themselves. Also, the usual tip of making 3s near the bottom of the board to increase your chances in a cascade.

Like a lot of levels, you do need a decent start and a bit of luck, but I had several 40k scores before passing. Keep going and you will get through. Don't waste any boosters though.

Ok I have got this far in the game and had many frustrating levels but got through to this point and had some fun along the way but now this is just not fun anymore and not even a challenge. Can anyone recommend a good game for me to change over to as I am about done now with this one now. Thanks x Jan from Dorset, England

I hate this level. Need a good board, with some good moves. When you spend days on a level it gets tiring. Not fun.

Why is the video always a better board then what we get? More 5's, better moves, more combos. I don't like time levels anyway, but I haven't gotten close to 50,000---not even close!!! Please give us a lucky board too. Thank you!

Impossible level - bored now. Time to say goodbye! I spent too much on 'buying' my way through level 1694 - never again! It was fun - sometimes.

Ok, this is the 3rd timed level where I have been stuck so long that the joy is gone from this game. I was stuck for the whole summer on an earlier level. Then was stuck on 1694 until the time was increased to 60 seconds from 25 seconds. Will there ever be relief on this level or is this the jumping off point for the game?

Old Gran here....Oh how I hate these timed levels. I can't even think, much less get my hands to work on these. Give me the spawners, the chocolate, the bombs. Please, anything but the timed levels. I managed to pick up every time increase that came down and still not close.

I was playing this level for upteenth time on my phone. Had a play which would activate two plus 5's. Looked at time it said 7 ... moved the candy to activate the 5's. Both popped so should go to like 16 or 17 .. clock changed to 8. Anyone else notice this issue?

Tá chato!! Além de ficar presa esse nível é muito ruim. Se ainda fosse emocionante... Não quero parar com CC é o meu único jogo.

Really almost impossble - know it is though as have friends who have passed. But I can't even get close. How does it ever happen. Can't think of anything to do differently. Have even gone to help site for timed levels. I think the only way is to beg for a lucky board....so I am begging!!!

There's only one tip possible for this rubbish level - stop thinking, and play it like a robot over and over again until King gives you the lucky board. Should only take a week or two. not much fun though. Bit like serving a prison term. Voluntarily.

Finally got it! Lost fifty times or more on mobile, succeeded first try on PC.

One piece of advice: ignore the advice to not detonate candy bombs. What you need on this level is cascades, epic cascades, and candy bombs are the best way to start them, regardless of how many points you get. Counterintuitive, but give it a try. Also, check out the YouTube videos of this level. They all set off the candy bombs as quickly as possible.

Oops... colour bombs, I meant. Guess I was delirious. :-)
