Candy Crush Saga level 1823

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 1823 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
At the time of writing this level has not been classified as hard, but I think it will be. I struggled a lot to pass level 1823 and used 2 lollies in the end as I wanted to move on.
There are 2 ways to tackle level 1823, the first and quickes, though not the easiest, is to switch 2 colour bombs together, either before you clear the cake bomb or after, makes little difference. 
You will need quite a bit of luck in the first few moves to clear the Evil Spawner before it blocks all your moves with marmalade.
The cake bomb will unlock the lucky candies and the colour bomb combo will turn them all yellow and they will be collected.
The other way is to use colour bombs to unlock and change the lucky candies, once the cake is cleared look for matches amongst the lucky candies, but be careful not to leave the yellows where you won't be able to match them.
I have posted 2 videos below showing both ways of clearing level 1823.
First by Skillgaming
Second showing the double colour bomb combo by Johnny Crush

This is a hard level. Not sure if it's a glitch or not, but anytime I clear the mystery candies on the left, they turn any color BUT yellow. Anyone else?

Anonymous said...

No Marie, it worked with me. A hard level and you need a little bit of luck in the beginning. A clouor bomb is an important focus to work on. And look carefull at the left side because you need to collect 16 of the 18 mystery candies.The 6th attempt worked for me.

Good luck from the Netherlands!

Mine is the same as Marie's. When I unlock the special candies they don't turn yellow and I'm finding this level very difficult. Thanks for all the hints and tips on here - I'd be lost without them....

Impossible.. After I clear the cake, I just waste moves on the right side until I run out. What am I supposed to be going for? If it's a double chocolate ball, another 100 moves or so would be helpful.

Anonymous said...

So let me get this straight. All I have to do is destroy the spawner by hitting it 5 times, then destroy a cake that's in a corner, and then remove 18 yellows that you cant touch except by making chocolate balls on a 4-candy wide board. All in 20 moves. Have I got that right?

Oops, 30 moves.

Another candy crush bullshit special in hopes of making us spend money go th hell jerks so over you and your shitty levels

Okay, I've had it. I'll check back in occasionally to see if they've nerfed it, but if they don't, I'm done. Just not any fun, and, after all, why do we play CC?

not to do, a very bad level. .......:-(

This isn't just a hard level, it's pretty impossible! Not sure how many people have passed this but Ithink I'll be here for a while still :(

Anonymous said...

The thing is...I have no idea what I am supposed to be going after! I have cleared the cake with 20 moves left, gotten a color bomb and hit a color on the left side that reveals a few yellows. Now what??? I make combos and no additional yellows appear. What am I trying to do - get another color bomb on the right?? And then what? What genius @ King put 1823 together? This one out and out SUCKS!

Anonymous said...

This is so annoying. A lot of my lucky candies also didn't turn to yellow. With my last move and one more yellow candy to go, I moved 4 green candies together, two of which were lucky candies, and they didn't turn yellow. Game ended!!!! This really sucks. Wish they'd fix this game as it's not enjoyable anymore!

Lee Horton said...

This is impossible!!!! i am ready to quit!

Ugh. Yay me. Just got a very lucky board, used 4 hammers at the end to finish, never coming back. Luck was having the lucky candies arranged so that I could make groups of three to turn them yellow. No skill, stupid board. Good luck to everyone, see you at the next horror board.......

Anonymous said...

I agree with the above comment, I had to resort to using some of my stockpiled hammers to hit the mystery candies, which were right in a row and matched themselves. No other way to pass it unless you get extremely lucky and happen to get side by side color bombs!

Anonymous said...

Another rubbish level. After two days of trying, I finally managed to clear the spawner and the cake, only to find that the mystery candies don't contain yellow candies after all.
King - STOP WASTING OUR TIME!!

I have used all my boosters trying to pass this level.... it's not possible without boosters.... not sure it's even possible!!! Can someone tell me what level is good for collecting boosters, because I will NOT buy them! I'm hoping they may change this one... every time I get somewhat close.... the special candies will not turn yellow and makes it impossible!!!!!!!!!!

SueJ said...

I think when you get three specials hit in a row they change to yellow and then disappear, being replaced by other colours., so those of you who think they are not changing to yellow may not be noticing that your total has actually gone down. Having said that, this is going to need a VERY lucky board for me to get close. Two colour bombs next to each other - oh really - just give me a minute...!!! Have only played this one a few times and already losing interest! :(

Anonymous said...

Okay.... it is possible!!! I just posted this morning saying it wasn't possible without boosters, but I just got a VERY lucky board! I passed with no boosters.... keep trying... it will happen! Good Luck :)

Anonymous said...

I consider myself a pretty good player since making it this far and never spending a dime. But this board is driving me nuts! I have tried everything. Oh well I guess I will wait for a lucky board. Good luck all.

I have considered all the free boosters gifts and have been using them all along. At this point I have only a couple left. Hmmm, maybe I should have stockpiled them. Clearly, I'll be on this level a while. For those condemning CC, keep in mind that this is a free game and they do give us free boosters. Get a grip.

The worst thing about this level is that once I clear the cake and expose the balls on the left, I have no idea what to do. Nothing seems to work.
I really have to wean myself off of Candy Crush.

May have been lucky first try - got 2 chocolate balls next to each other, switched them and game was over.

Anonymous said...

It was my lucky day! Finished this level at the first try! Good luck everyone!

Anonymous said...

This level is very annoying and without luck could take some time to clear. I did discover by accident that when I ran out of moves on the right hand side the shuffle moved the freed up ones on the left hand side over to the right, which was useful to help clear the yellow ones. But my delight was short lived as not enough moves left and no lives left either.

Sage said...

Sage here. I agree. Nothing seems to work for me. But I'll keep trying.

Anonymous said...

Finally passed! I used the check mark booster, which meant I already had quite a few yellows collected before unlocking the left side. There are one or two moves after the cake explodes before the licorice comes back. I was lucky enough to have a wrap stripe combo that took out another 6 yellows. Finished it off with a chocolate sprinkle combined with a yellow candy from a check mark.

Anonymous said...

I began with sprinkle, stripe/wrap, and check mark boosters, and completed game first try. Luckily, the sprinkle and wrapped candy were side-by-side, which all but eliminated the evil spawned with the first move. After that, clearing the cake was easy, and so was matching colors on the left side.

You messed up again, King. Time to change a new batch of designers.

Anonymous said...

Having read the comments, I started with a color bomb and did about 15 resets until I can make another color bomb beside the one to begin with by using a hand switch. Switching them together freed the lucky candies from the crates. Then, I used a lollipop to finish the last slice of the cake bomb. It's explosion changed all the lucky candies into yellow and it's done in 5 moves in the first try!

Sam Devilder said...

It's levels like this that make me question why I continue to play candy crush. Ready to give up. Grrrr.

Anonymous said...

Spot on a few comments above. Start with color bomb, reset until you can match or hand switch another color bomb next to it. Finished with 22 moves left. GREAT suggestion!

Anonymous said...

Thanks! Finally got it thanks to the advice here. Started with color bomb boosted, reset until you can make another color bomb, combine them, then finish the right side of the board. When the box explodes, the whole left side turned yellow.

Crushed said...

After several tries without getting close I got the luckiest board. A shuffle after 3 moves, a color bomb out of no where and another shuffle. Most all of the specials ended up on the right side of the board. Had to use one hammer and finished with 3 moves left.

Tom Verdin said...

Anyone else getting an error message when you pass this level?

Anonymous said...

I used five lives and failed each time. I let a day go by and tried again. Voila, success on first try without boosters, ending with three stars. I think it was due to the check mark candies being the same color, so that I could easily switch to make three in a row, over and over.

very difficult level and first time i have posted on here - going to try a sprinkle to start with and see what happens !!

Give me strength!! There have been some frustrating levels along the road - but this takes the biscuit!!! Not even flagged as 'Hard Level' ?? Been wasting my time on this - I need to get a life . . . . . . . .

did this too, first try!

SharonH said...

Video #2 is a joke! Anyone else got that type of board? And I am with a previous poster that this makes me wonder why I have even continued to play CC! The hard levels, I find fairly easy, sometimes beating on first couple tries and then the supposed easy levels, impossible! Get it together King! Let's go back to when what we learned early on is helpful, instead of waiting days for that lucky board!

Anonymous said...

Another frustrating impossible level!! I am so ready to quit this game. I don't mind a challenge but I play for fun and to relax and lately I am finding too many levels that are just too annoying.

When u say u "reset", what do u mean? U just scrapped that game and started another? Don't u run through games awfully fast, plus use up ur color bombs?

On iPhone or iPad, you can reset or restart any level without losing any lives or played boosters by doing the following:
DON’T do any move in the board when the level starts.
Hit/click the lower-left corner menu button.
Click the Exit button (red rectangle with a left arrow).
You will be redirected to the levels board.
Hit/click the level you were playing.

On Android devices, hit/click the Back arrow.

Frustrating, but persevered and passed on about the 20th attempt with the help of 2 hammers. No better or worse than many other levels. People, it's Level 1823. It's supposed to be challenging!

Michelle Sims said...

I started off with a color bomb that I had saved. I was lucky enough to have a second color bomb made for me on my second move. I used a saved hand switch to get them together. My third move I mixed the two bombs which also cleared the cake. It was complete luck.

Anonymous said...

Hi, Tchaik here. As some others have reported, when I finally get to the specials which should turn yellow, they don't. They turn every other colour *except* yellow.

Anonymous said...

I really don't think this is possible on an iPad! I used the strip/wrap combo, sprinkle, and check booster! It cleared the spanwer in three moves, which was great..... Then after two more moves the center row fills up with licorice, so no matter how many wrap/stripe moves you make, you cant get to the special candies because the licorice blocks them, and more keep falling! The check boosters turned into yellow but I only got four, so no help there! This level REALLY NEEDS TO BE TWEEKED!!! Come on King, enough!!

Anonymous said...

Oh, my comment is right above this one! ^^^ I forgot to add, the two videos you show are a BIG JOKE!!! I've played 100 times already and have not gotten one single sprinkle, far less two together!! Come on, be real and fix this level King!!!

I have loved CC, but this level has really turned me against the game. It's so frustrating and so impossible that I'm thinking that there are much better and happier ways of wasting time. What a turn-off!

Just posting for luck. The licorice blocks any moves that might be of any use. I need a lucky board quickly because honestly it is no fun any more. Don't even care if I play.

Anonymous said...

Get two sprinkles side by side? Are you serious?? It's difficult to get one sprinkle much less two! Even if I manage to get a few yellows in the left column, I then have useless moves in the right column to finish out the moves! I play on iPad. Anyone else have better luck on PC?

sprocket2 said...

I was lucky. I tried without boosters and was able to make one wrapped candy next to the evil spawner and another one formed just one space away. I used a free hand switch to moved them next to one another and the resulting explosion cleared the cake on move 2!
At that point I left the right side of the board alone and made my plays on the left (when the cake cleared the cannon freed all of the special candies). I used a couple of hand switches and a lollipop and was able to collect my yellows. If you are playing on a mobile device and want to start with boosters I'd advise using a stripe/wrap candy and chocolate bomb and reset until the bomb and wrap are as close as possible to the cake and you have some extra candies the same color as your wrapped candy on the board. Go ahead and clear the cake and then just work on the left side. This is certainly the time to use those free hand switches and hammers.

Doreen Price said...

Another near impossible level time to call it a day I think it's getting harder and harder to complete

Anonymous said...

Suddenly, used one of each booster and with 3 hammers a hand switch RESULT. Also had 13 hours on the clock thanks to the chests. Worst one for a year or more. Must wean my self of this ridiculous game 😃

Anonymous said...

Somehow I got a lucky board and got those 2 colour bombs together. Passed with 3 stars. Took 3 days of trying.

joy said...

I was stuck on this level for days. But finally luck struck me and I just passed it with no boosters and got 2 stars. Main thing is to have a good combination of candies on the left. This time I had 7 moves left when the cake got cleared but with luck I collected all the yellow candies. Earlier on I had 23 moves left when the cake got cleared but there was nothing to match on the left so there was no way to win. Anyway good luck and don't give up!

Dowerland said...

After following the video posted above, I did everything suggested, but after the cake bomb goes off the liquorice wall stops all the attempts at changing the candies to yellow, this particular game is more than hard. Come on CC help your loyal following by playing fair.

dirty vegas said...

There is a problem in this level , the candies on the left are not yellow ,I don't know what I'm supposed to do in order to collect the required jellies if the jellies needed are not there .

dirty vegas said...

I can't move forward if there is a problem with the level . The left side tick candies don't turn to the required yellow. being that this is hard level it's not always obvious because in the last few days of trying I very rarely get past the licorice but when I do the candies are not always yellow ,I'm really not to sure what I'm supposed to do in order to collect the required amount .I'm finding it really frustrating ,this is the first level in a long time that I've posted any comment ,I'm posting for help ,has this happened to anyone else who has gone on to clear the level ,is this what is meant to happen .?

Annonymous said...

Ridiculous. I think I will go look for pokemon.

Annonymous said...

I had a message opening up Candy Crush that 772 billion rounds have been played on Candy Crush. I think most of them were on this level. Back to Pokemon...

dirty vegas said...

I'm seriously struggling on this level ,i managed to clear the cake with 23 moves left managed to make a sprinkle to hit a candy on the left only for it to turn blue not the required yellow ,I can honestly say that I'm trying to play a level that is nearly impossible to pass unless you have unlimited boosters and for people like me who can't afford such luxury it means IM STUCK FOR A WEEK AND COUNTING AND HOPING THAT AFTER A WEEK THERE WOULD BE SOME LUCK THROWN MY WAY ...OOPS sorry for shouting ,didn't realise cap lock was on .

You don't need to buy boosters. Go back and play levels that have the candies to collect and you have FREE boosters.

Oh my this is a hard one been on it for days. I clear the cake with many turns left but can not get the yellow ones. Ughhh ready to give up but i won't will keep trying.

How on earth do you get them on the left side with them blockers in the way?Can not beat this for nothing

Anonymous said...

Can someone please give us some ideas how you are beating this one. Many have asked how but no one has said. thanks for any help

Catgirl said...

Used tons of boosters and only managed to clear the cake once! Yet again cookies tips don't help one bit - get two colour bombs next to each other, oh yeah why didn't I think
Of that? Hmm
Perhaps because I'm lucky to get three matches in a row!!! Constant reshuffles and even once you've cleared the cake the liquotice block the way. There really actually is no point in playing this at all :(

Hi guys, I found by using a check and then a couple of hand switches may be the only way to pass, it worked for me. Good luck.

Anonymous said...

Yuk, another crummy level. I expect levels to be hard this high, but they need to be interesting too! Only being able to make one or two moves and not getting anywhere near completing is just totally dull and most of the time I have cleared the cake with 1 go left! Even when I've cleared it with lots of moves left, I still get nowhere. Which means it's another waiting for a lucky board level. I play candy crush for fun, but it's really not much fun on the recent episodes. Although I have been reading more instead, which is probably a good thing!

Anonymous said...

I wasted a lot of sprinkles to learn what works best. Finally I combined color bomb with stripe to clear right side. Once the cake is cleared, I ignored the right side because of the licorice blockers. I used hand switches and hammers on the left side to line colors up and to hammer out the final 3 yellows. Worth it to use boosters to move on.

Skibuz said...

This was a horrible level. I finally passed it by starting off with a sprinkle. Then used a hammer early on to destroy the last piece of cake. Then used a hand switch at the end to get the last 3 yellow candies. I can't imagine how one would pass this level with no boosters.
Happy to be past it!

Anonymous said...

Got the cake vert early leaving enough moves to work on left side. Used a sprinkle to hit one color on the left then more moves appeared

Bullcrap! How many times did Ms Cookie play to get the board with 2 colour bombs and be able to unlock the wrapped yellows and then get the cake cleared to be able to unwrap all the yellows?

Anonymous said...

Right, well that's just creepy. I wrote the above comment about how many times has Ms Cookie played to get that kind of board. I went straight back to CC and then got exactly that kind of board and passed the level. Very weird.

After being stuck on this level for two days I conceded and had to use 3 lollipop hammers to complete it - nightmare level come on King this one has gone too far.

Tried a few times and was not sure what I was supposed to do. I Read comments here and used them. I started with a sprinkle booster I then managed to make another sprinkle and used a hand switch to get them side by side which unlocked all the yellows, the the cake bomb exploded and that was it. So use your saved boosters whether it be sprinkles. hand switches or hammers that is what they are for!

Anonymous said...

I don't understand how you get yellow! Mine don't turn into yellow. Pls help! Stuck for a week now, used boosters too!

Anonymous said...

I managed after 100 tries! Lol. First I got the evil, then used hand switch to get my stripe + wrapped together to clear the cake. Then was lucky with a color bomb, I used 10 hand switch to make another which cleared the ticks to change to yellow. Worth using 15 hands, lol good luck!

Anonymous said...

Absolute sheer luck after trying dozens of times..got 2 sprinkles together by chance...they cleared the board and turned all the mystery candies to yellow..they also cleared the cake so then it cleared all the yellow ! Did this in 5 moves and got 3 stars...but once again this was LUCK !

Hmm - did not like this level. The first part was ok, but I couldn't get the yellows done. Ended up using 2 hand switches and a hammer. Disappointed with myself for going for the boosters so early, but I was not enjoying this level.

Anonymous said...

Couldn't get into cc it kept throwing me out so I had to re install the app. I can now get in but have lost all my boosters and I had several!

Mark Potter said...

Could see this level was going to wind me up so I threw the lot at it. Fortunately I had copious amounts of boosters left over from the drudgery of level 1810 so I started with colour bomb paired with a wrapped to get rid of the spawner and make a large dent in the cake. Then it was switches and hammers to complete. 4 of each I think.

Mark Potter said...

Oh. And the small matter of spinning and winning 15 extra moves helped.

Spike said...

Clear the cake, get guite a few yellow, make stripes and the licorice stops them from getting through, any tips? Thanks much !
