Candy Crush Saga Level 1826

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 1826 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Level 1826 has a horrible tendency to shuffle and end after only one or two moves, even when you can see a move.
Hopefully by the time you read this the glitch will be fixed and the level can be played without losing too many lives.
The tricky part of this level is unlocking the two colour bombs at the top of the board. They have to be hit with a stripe. To do this the best method is to unlock the colour bomb in the middle but don't use it straight away, try to get a stripe beside it and then get some candies the same colour as the stripe in line with the top colour bombs, either in the top square or down the sides. Then switch the combo and with luck this will unlock the cololour bombs and you can use them.
If you are having trouble with this you can always use a couple of hammers to unlock the colour bombs.

After playing for around 4 straight days, I finally passed it today. The best way I find is to keep the center colour bomb and make another bomb by its side and then switch them over. This level will be done and dusted.

Since this is at least the fourth level with this shuffling bug -- after 1806, 1809, and 1810 - I have to assume that either quality control checks have gone out the window or that they purposely do not want people to play the game anymore. At least 85% of my tries (sometimes five straight tries!) have ended in 2-3 moves because of this bug. Even those inclined to buy more moves would be unable to do so, so this cannot be a money-making gambit.

I can see it being doable given enough legit tries, though 90% of the times you're not defeated by the shuffle bug, the only move available is to use the candy ball in the center when you do not want to -- which makes finishing the board without lollipop hammers much less likely.

Well, I see they haven't fixed the "Shuffle Bug" yet. :/

Think this might be the end of candy crush as all I keep getting is a couple of moves then it shuffles then it says no more moves even though there are obvious moves available. This has been happening on earlier levels as well so won't be able to complete it. GHad their day by the looks of it Running out of new ideas now so probably just wasting lives. 5 in a row this time.

No more moves available despite 3 colours being reshuffled in a row.
Oh oh why don't you just stop making new levels if you don't want people to play the game.
Are you really so dumb that you think people are going to pay to carry on a game after 3 moves ?

I came on here to complain about the game ending prematurely to see from the comments above that I am not alone. I have had my 5 goes and each one has ended after only 3 moves. What can you do????? Ridiculous.

Till now with the hard levels I couldn't resist the game in the hope to find a way to beat the level. I couldn't leave the game and I managed to come this far. But now fun is over. My five lives are done in one minute because of this bug. So I finally can leave the game and start reading books again :-)

Anonymous said...

after one or two moves there are no moves available. in two minutes all lives are gone. impossible...........

Anonymous said...

realy how is it possible, after one or two moves game over !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Juergen Hansen said...

Another idiotic level. Disgusting! It takes 3 min to finish 5 lives.
Sometimes after first move - shuffling and - surprise - no more moves.

Monasterymale said...

what a load of crap again, it cant be possible that KING doesnt know about this stupid shuffle glitch.. still not paying any money to king, they almost begging for it lol

Mike T said...

The "bug" is still there....and I agree with the concept of matching the center bomb with a stripe, but I always seem to 'have to' activate it before its time...hoping for that lucky board again....

Anonymous said...

A chocolate bomb off a wrapped is the answer to this level. Getting that is the hard part.

I'm four off the top of latest levels and ominously the last level is a timed one!

Anonymous said...

thanks King for making it easier ! Great

Anonymous said...

The reshuffle annoyance is still happening. The game is over a few turns in saying no more possible moves, when there are clearly three or more candies of the same color spread throughout the board. It's getting so that it's not even fun to begin a game lately. The developers creating these games forgot their thinking caps at home. Candy Crush is becoming a joke.

Anonymous said...

All 5 lives gone using less than 10 moves due to this glitch when there obviously moves possible. I can't see how to move on if I m not given a chance to have a go.

Anonymous said...

I am also experiencing this same shuffling of tiles and the game ending when there are obviously moves still available. Is King going to fix this?

Anonymous said...

Agree with all of the above, just waiting to see when they decide to put timed levels in Candy Crush soda.....NOT!

Heidi said...

One try. Three stars. Not kidding. My "lucky" board was the first one. I've spent days on some of the previous levels....luck me, for once!! Good luck to the rest...

Anonymous said...

The shuffling is driving me crazy! I lost 4 lives in a row today.
Is this after the level was fixed?

Anonymous said...

Yes this shuffling to end the game automatically is a new level of ridiculousness.

Anonymous said...

same here, just 1 or 2 rounds and finished, and I can see a row of 3 on the board! I have never spent one penny on this and dont plan on starting now!

Anonymous said...

Shuffle glitch STILL unresolved - maybe by Wednesday when this level is available on mobile, we will actually be able to play it using all available moves!!

Anonymous said...

The board is not playable with this glitch. As I've suspected in previous levels, especially 1825, it isn't easy to make matches because it is coded that way. once the timer ran out, there were all kinds of matches on the board and that is where you got most of your points. Either they have gone stupid or they need people who actually know how to write code. Hard is one thing, not playable is another.

Anonymous said...

I was actually able to play two boards using all the moves. First one chocolate bomb and striped, didn't do much for the corners. Second one the chocolate bomb and a regular candy was only move so I had to use it not clearing any corners. If you do get to play, the corners are a major obstacle. If you have a stockpile of lollipops, which I only have one, you can use them.

I have 3 yellow in a row and it says end game no moves!!!! what kind of crap is this? fix it - took a pic, but cant post it. hope whoever thinks this level is doable, try playing it themselves!!

What the heck???

Dear Candy Crush Creators,

I think everyone who has made it to this level should receive about a hundred free lives, because that's about how many I have lost with this shuffling glitch, and I'm sure everyone has!

Signed,

Everyone

AnneV said...

Getting pretty bored getting to play out 1 round in 5! and not coming close to getting the lucky board! the shuffle has got to stop quitting the game when there are enuf combinations possible - costs too many lives! and to boot there are 4 timed levels in this section! quite the unbalance, cant they write anymore? I agree that all who got this far should get more lives - 100 is a nice start! ;)

Anonymous said...

CC is all about money. The game knows what candies are going to appear, when they are going to appear and disappear also where candies will be placed.The game also knows exactly when and where to put any type of blocks. I really don't think you can win any level until CC lets you.

Anonymous said...

I keep losing when is tells me no moves left Grrr very annoying please fix it ..thank you C/C

Anonymous said...

Oh please, FIX IT, this shuffling is SOOOOOO annoying!!!! That's not fair, let us play not losing lives for no reason!

Anonymous said...

Even without the glitch, this one is gonna take a really, really, really lucky board. I wasted a hand swap and lollipop to get 2 chocolate bombs together, but no way to put in play the second bomb. They need to at least remove the greyed out blocker on the board.

Life #1 one move game shuffles,game over. life #2 one move, game shuffles, game over. life #3 one move, game shuffles, game over. Life #4, well you get the point. This is getting ridiculous.

Yup, shuffling bug keeps crashing me out after a couple of moves as well!! WTF??

Sue said...

5 lives gone again only thing this level is good for is I get loads of time to do other things PLEASE FIX IT ...I use C/C to unwind after a long day.....Sue..

Anonymous said...

1826 level is really very irritating. We play the game for entertainment, but here one gets irritated when the game shows no more moves possible. This glitch must be fixed & moreover what is the use of making the level so difficult that one loses all the interest in playing.

Sue said...

OK King enough is enough Iv used up all my little helpers and lost so many tries PLEASE FIX THIS LEVEL..Kind regards Sue

Anonymous said...

How can we contact the developers and let them know that even with moves it stops the game. I think they are running out of ideas for new games and are making it hard to win so everyone stops playing. Candy Crush is the game they said would never end and I think they are trying to end it do to no players playing.

Anonymous said...

Is King not fixing this level because they are too busy playing Pokemon Go?
I see other issues besides the shuffle. Often when using a Chocolate Sprinkle against another color, it doesn't affect all of them. I also once encountered an issue where I had couldn't see a move to make and as usual waited for the game to indicate where I could make the next one. Yet it never happened and I had to exit out of the game.

What is going on at King? I tried to send them a message about level 1826 on the Customer Care site and after correctly passing the reCaptcha verification, it does nothing when I click send.
Weak.....

Anonymous said...

No matter how you try to contact King they will not respond to anyone. They don't care about Candy Crush players any more because they have newer games they want you to play instead.

Anonymous said...

All we can do is hope someone from King also sees this site and gets the message that we players are not happy.

Anonymous said...

What a joke!!! How disappointing! To come this far and then find this type of poor game creating going on!

I began the game with a sprinkle, a wrap/stripe, and a fish booster. Luckily, I had no shuffle glitch, and won first try. Fish helped a lot, and I did free two sprinkles with lollipops. From what I had read about this level, I chose to do whatever it took to just get through it. Playing for boosters paid off!

Anonymous said...

Okay! I went through most of the above comments and just didn't try this level again for a few days. Now it's out on the I-phone this a.m. and got it on the first try. It seems that they not only fixed it on the I-phone edition, but they made it easy, unless I got a very lucky board. After everything that had happened in prior tries, it was truly unbelievable!

Anonymous said...

Forgot to add to the above comment--no boosters! They aren't even classifying it as a "hard" level on the I-phone! Wonder if they've changed it on my computer also.

Played this level this morning on my Samsung S5 and won the first time I played

Using a fish booster might help freeing the color bombs from the marmalade, so that you won't have to hit it with a stripe.

Reshuffle glitch is still not fixed.

Lost five lives within minutes due to the shuffling glitch on my pic. Just passed on my iPad, but did use a fish booster and two hammers. Cheating I know, but I only have so much patience.

Connie said...

Using iPad fish and sprinkle took care of the blocked sprinkle after resetting a few times, then was a matter of cleaning up. Fish take care of the unreachables.

The glitz has not been fixed yet (14 July 16). It keeps shuffling and half the time closes the game! Not fun at all. Grace from DU

Anonymous said...

In the end I used about 4 hammers to finish this level. Don't waste any fish boosters as shuffling glitz makes it a waste and often you cannot use them because you cannot match them up with the right colour. I am so glad I had saved up enough hammers do be able to do this. Hopefully we don't get straight away a times level again. That's also become a nightmare. Lazy buggers at King! Grace from DU

Van5 said...

Managed to make a second colour bomb (with the help of a hand switch) to put beside the first one. After that it was easy. Only 6 jellies left which I was able to clear. Good luck everyone! First time in a long time I've managed 3 stars.

Crushed said...

Still has a bug!!!! On the 4th try I selected the fish booster. Got all the jellies but one with 8 moves left. Fish showed up again at 4 moves left.
But the fish didn't go after the last jelly that happened to have a locked color bomb on it.
That was the closest I've been in several more tries.
Really sucks when boosters don't work!!!!

Horrible level again.

I love this shuffling glitch! it makes the game so much fun! I hope they extend it to other levels too.

Are you for real or just being sarcastic??

Anonymous said...

Stupid, stupid, stupid. Didn't have a problem with the glitch on my (Android) phone, but wasn't getting anywhere with this level, so I tried on the PC. 5 lives gone in less than a minute because it ended on me after only 1 (sometimes 2) reshuffles, one of them 10 moves into the game, with plenty of colors available. I guess I'll give Candy Crush a miss until they fix this.

Anonymous said...

Went back to my phone as it doesn't have the glitch. Used all 3 boosters at the start. Was resetting to get sprinkle/stripe together, but then sprinkle was next to one of the sprinkles in the corner, so used a lollipop hammer to remove the jelly, and combined them. Got lucky with the colors next to the other sprinkles so I was able to clear the corner jellies, then I had plenty of moves left to clear the blocks and jellies in the center of the board.

King, PLEASE quit using us, the loyal players, as your testing crew. Or pay us for this service. You obviously aren't checking for bugs/glitches before releasing new levels. WE are doing it for you. Put us on the payroll or put SOMEONE on the payroll to do some testing....

Anonymous said...

I used a color bomb and a hammer. Use the color bomb and reset until it lands next to another color bomb. Then use the hammer to free this color bomb and switch both bombs together. After many tries, I finished the level the first time I started like this.

SharonH said...

July 17th and it is still shuffling after 1-2 moves, accomplishing nothing but wasting moves...And again, not marked a hard level, which is Kings way of telling you it is one! I though adding another choco ball and a striped/wrapped extras and then trying to match up the wrapped with the choco, by going in and out of the game till it lined up might help, but guess what, after 60 tries, knew I could never get them together no matter how many times I tried! I am now assuming King has no plans to fix the bug and we just have to wait for that lucky board AGAIN! Wonder how many people quit this game on a daily basis because of Kings stupidity!

Anonymous said...

I HATE levels like this!! You can't get any combo matches, and it's bull about saving the sprinkle candy in the middle. EVERY time I get it, I have to use it right away because there are no other moves. Really getting sick of this game!

Anonymous said...

I think the King developers are on strike and trying to get people to quit this game. The levels lately are hideous.

Anonymous said...

I think the glitch everyone is talking about has been fixed, I didn't find this level hard at all. Got it my second try three stars. I used a fish booster that got the two in the top corners.

Unknown said...

Fish did not work for me. Twice I was down to only 1 jelly in the top corner and fish ignored it time after time until I was out of moves. After dozens of tries, I finally gave in, built up my hammer stash with sugar drops, and smashed the damn corners. Voila. Next.

Anonymous said...

So many dumb ass comments here. First off- the developers of this game are not "on strike", "lazy" or whatever other stupid idea comes into your head. While this game may be "free", the goal is to get you to BUY their bullshit gold coins, extra booster, and whatever else they're selling. That's why they make it hard.

That said, those of you complaining about this level, must have either got some SERIOUS LUCK on the previous one (1825) or it must be much different on your phones/tablets because I was stuck there for nine fucking days, not able to get anything anywhere near the passing score. That was the hardest lever since 500 (something), with those infuriating tornadoes. I was stuck there for TWO MONTHS and when I finally passed, they reduced the required (whatever it was) in half!! Fuck you, King!

Anonymous said...

The reshuffling is not ending my game so maybe that was fixed but seriously, UGH!!!!! This level sucks and yet, here I am still playing. I NEED A LIFE!!!!!

Just when you think a level can't get worse!

I put to color bombs together but it didn't blow up the color bombs in the top corners! WTH?

LynnR said...

Fish booster is the way to go with this one. I passed the first time when I used a fish booster.

Anonymous said...

Used 2 color bombs right next to each other and still didn't do anything to the color bombs on top! Please send a lucky board!
