Candy Crush Saga Level 1871

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 1871 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Level 1871 is classified as a hard level so you can expect to lose a few lives before you pass it.
You will get a wrapped candy to begin with providing you don't use any boosters and with luck you may even get more special candies when the candies settle.
You have 15 moves to remove the bombs and they will give you loads of points towards your total so they are not all bad.
Wrapped candies and stripe/wrap combos are the best apart from colour bombs of course. 
You will need to play slowly and carefully to see the matches as well as try to remember the colour changes of the chameleon candies.  Sometimes it's helpful to wait for the game to give you a hint as it could be a move you missed.
Colour bombs are the obvious choice but with so many colours on the board they are not always easy to make, however once you make one look carefully before you use it and see if you can leave yourself with another afterwards.

Tips from Lucia found in the comments, Thank you. 
Beware of using colour bomb/wrap or colour bomb/stripe combos when you have a lot of bombs on the board. The bombs will turn into stripes or wraps and they will clear most of the bombs, but you won't get the 3000 points per bomb that you would for just using the colour bomb on a single bomb.

Beware of color-bomb-stripe and color-bomb-wrap combos. They'll get rid of most or all of the bombs, but bombs that turn into wraps or stripes don't give bomb points. I finished the moves but came up short on points at the end. Stripe-wrap combos are the best, but you need a lot of them, which takes some luck. (Sorry, Cookie, you have skill, I need luck.)

Jeff said...

Lucia's advice is right on! You lose a lot of bomb points if you use a stripe or wrap combo with a sprinkle ball before all the bombs are detonated. After the bombs are gone, those combos (especially wrapped candy with sprinkle ball) are essential.
I get past the bombs about two out of five games, but the highest score I have managed is just over 300,000. I think they will need to either lower the point objective or give us more moves to get me by this one (and it is still a week and a half before I can get after it on my iPad where I can just skip the hopeless boards).

How do you skip a board on the I-pad?

This is yet another really boring, so called “Hard” Level, where you’ve just got to keep playing and waiting, until they decide when you can succeed and move on to the next level. This for me is one of the worst ‘Hard Levels, because twice so far I’ve successfully scored over the required 4000 points but twice it wasn’t accepted that I had. The first time, even though I’d scored well over 4000, it just closed the “life” down and opened up the next “Life.” The second time, it didn’t accept my achievement of scoring over 4000 by saying that that bombs were going to explode on the next move and shut down the life. Another issue, which I feel was unfair, was at the start of the game and following the initial automatic move of the blue squares at the top, it said there was no further move available and shut down. This meant I lost the last one of my 5 lives without doing anything.

I'm able to get one or the other, but not both. I broke down and used 9 gold bars to add more moves, but the second time they were asking 18 gold bars which is ridiculous and I refused to give them any more. This level does give hope of passing, guess I'll wait for the lucky board. Why the laptop and the mobile don't have the same amount of levels is ridiculous.

This is hopeless, I give, will wait until Wednesday and try it on mobile. I'll see then whether I'm done or not.

The only way I was able to get 400k points was with a color bomb/bomb, but couldn't get the last bomb, so still waiting for the lucky board. Good luck all!

I used three hammers, one switch, and one color bomb... Though it second time. I wasn't going to spend days on this when I had the boosters to go. Then I hit a basket and got some of them back:) Gotta love the free boosters:) Onward crushers!

Anonymous said...

I also got once to 335.000+ and found that I did not have enough points. But most times the bombs will get you anyway. Not nice - just boring. Grace from DU

Terrible level took a lot of attempts pure luck that three chocolate bombs formed by themselves.

Anonymous said...

Enough is enough. I'm done with C C. Cleared all the bombs, One by one, got a sprinkle with the wrap hardly moved score. My total was 240,000 . Total BS. Deleting this game from my iPad been a good two years oft & on got better things to do like watch grass grow. This new king company can shove it where the sun don't shine . Later fools.

Candy Crush is a fucking joke Changing colors to what wont help is a licence to steal your money fuck candy crush Its a garbage game that i would say probably run like Democrats run things crooked as hell PS FUCK THAT CUNT CLINTON

SharonH said...

All I can say about this level is LOL! The video is a joke and doubt anyone else has gotten this good a board! Plus more issues with CC that should be fixed prior to release?! See ya CC!

I am done with this crazy game of Candy Crush. This level is impossible!!!

Van5 said...

Well contrary to the advice offered above, I switched a colour bomb with a wrap and cleared the board of bombs on the third turn. Tried many many times to clear the bombs with specials and it just didn't work. Always lost out to the bombs. After they were cleared made as many stripe/wrap combos and managed 2 colour bomb/wrap combos which gave me my points.....just. Only one star, but happy to be moving on. I may come back and try this one again as its kind of a fun level. Good luck everyone!

cherylb said...

Twice I've gotten over the 4000000 and it did t advance to the next level...do all the bombs have to be gone?? I still had one that had a 2 on it...

Anonymous said...

just hoping I get a lucky board soon, very tedious!

Anonymous said...

All of us that have got this far have skill at this game and enjoy playing. Levels like this where luck is the main ingredient is chasing people like me away. Many times I have gotten rid of the bombs on play #1 and couldn't make the points. Many times I got rid of the bombs slowly and couldn't make the points. Thus, there isn't a strategy that works. That takes all the fun out of the game. If u want to keep long time players in, the strategy for building the levels has to change. Making them almost impossible will have the opposite of the intended effect. People will leave and as they do they will advise their friends not to play. This is a very bad business model that may very well cost you several billion dollars. KEEP THE GAME FUN AND WE WILL KEEP PLAYING. MAKE THE GAME ALL LUCK BASED AND NEAR IMPOSSIBLE, MOST WILL LEAVE. A business decision must be made soon before too many leave...

Finally got a lucky board and passed this level after many, many failed attempts. I was seriously doubting my ability to play this game when I passed. Don't waste your boosters (as I did) on this level; they make no difference.

Don't waste your boosters (as I did) on this level; they make no difference. I got 2 color bombs at random and matched with single candies, so no advice other than just wait for the lucky board (no strstegy helped me).

Jeannette Marlow said...

This may be the one that makes me quit. Have cleared the board several times but of course not enough points. Not spending money on a level like this. I'll try a couple more days but then I quit if I haven't passed. Boring level.

utterly boring! no skill needed anymore just pure luck

You Winn candy crush. Impossible!

Try using a UFO booster if you have one. It will help to open up the board and destroy many of the time bombs without losing their points.

Anonymous said...

Help! I've been trying for days and not even getting close. Even tried a UFO and didn't help much. Any other hints would be welcome. Don't want to quit. Once got to 350000 and bought lives and still didn't make it. Don't know how the video got so many points in the first few moves.

What about the colour blind and epileptics? This is a nightmare of a screen to watch, never mind pass

Posting for luck. Used both boosters and they exploded when the game began. I didn't even get a chance to use them. That was my last stripe wrap too. No fair. It's also not fair that bombs that are turned into special candies don't give you any points. Might be done. I've tried PC and iPad and there was no difference.

Diane Moffat said...

Omg I've got over the 400 000 points required twice, but won't move me on. So frustrating!!!!! Why? And has anyone else had this?

No luck on android phone, but got it first time on PC. Guess I just got lucky. Only one star, but I'll take it.

Anonymous said...

I cleared all the bombs (no, not by Colour Bomb and Striped combo), made 4 Colour Bombs, and yet still not enough points to clear this stupid board? Playing on Android mobile phone. Will rather spend my time chasing after Pokémon than wasting it at Candy Crush Saga anymore. King, your gaming app deserves to be relegated out off Top 100 for crap levels like these.

Anonymous said...

Takes the cake for most boring level ever! When you go through 5 turns in less th and 3 minutes and then have to wait 2 hours to play again. I'd rather play my pyramid games. CC has had soooo few fun levels in the last 300 levels!

Anonymous said...

Just posting for luck. I'm so sick of this level. On the few boards I manage to get rid of the bombs there are too many colors to get the necessary point. Using boosters at the beginning is a waste. You need to be able to use them later. Either I'll get a lucky board soon or I'll quit. At this point I really don't care which it is.

judy bettleyon said...

Here we are again! Manage to get rid if all those bombs but can't get near the 400000 points! Just nit gonna happen!!!! Come on candy crush!!!

Ultramum said...

So bored of this level - been stuck for more dys than I can recall - I just play my 5 games and have done as there is no point wasting lives or boosters. I'm only going to give it one more week and then call it a day - I did the same with the moonstruck levels after being stuck for a ridiculous amount of time.

Quite enjoying candy crush soda though :-)

Anonymous said...

This level is all about pure luck. I've been playing for days and have gotten close only once. Don't bother using boosters because you just end up wasting them. Once again, just waiting for that lucky board.

Macjack99 said...

Same thing happened to me got 440000 and still didn't advance not sure what the problem is

Anonymous said...

Had well over 400000 points, but could not denotate last bomb. Target says 400000 points, so why does it not go to candy crush when you you reach that point.

Macjack99 said...

Yup so when I've cleared all the bombs I don't get enough points just had 567000 and still didn't pAss

You have to finish all the "moves" given in order to end the game & advance.

If you are at this level you know their are hard levels that require lucky boards, you will get it eventually but I look forward to some hints from this site. I admit I said some bad things in the past but nothing compared to Anonymous from 3 August 2016 at 15:28. He should be ashamed, I am not thrilled about Clinton either, but no need to vet your political preference here in such a nasty way....apparently he doesn't have kids that come to this site for guidance. How do you get a comment removed? Moron's everywhere! sheesh! Lori

I've been stuck on this level for ages now. Have cleared the bombs in 2 goes (very lucky board!) but still can't get enough points. Seems to me there too many colours stopping you making the required points. Or I can get the points but not clear the bombs. Once I even got down to just one bomb left with all the points banked, clicked on quit a nano second before I realised, sob! Oh well, I know that lucky board will come along one day meanwhile I'm off out to enjoy myself! Good luck everyone. P.s. I can't believe there's not more posts on this one, we can't be the only ones struggling?

Key move for me on this one was combining a sprinkle ball with a wrap with plenty of candies the same color as the wrap. Went from under 200,000 to over 400,000 points in that move. Still had two time bombs so I played down to the count of one without being able to get them, so zapped both with hammers. Js

Sherry Edwards said...

Yeah I never heard or known about a way to "skip" a board????

Anonymous said...

Have clear bombs many times,never enough points. Closest I got was just short of the 400,000. What combos scores the most points, I haven't paid attention to that.

Sandy Langreck said...

Bye candy crush. Guess finally got sick of it. Levels are getting lame. I received present considering of a wrapper and a stripe, then with the wheel received another wrapper with a stripe. When I went to play I only had one wrapper and stripe available. Our off all of the wheels I did, I never did land on jack pot. The more I play, the more obvious it is that the whole thing is rigged. What a waste of life.

Have lost track of how many attempts I've made at this one. Candy crush used to be an enjoyable and relatively challenging but ultimately 'do-able'game, now there just seems to be way too many levels where I have to wait for a 'lucky'board' 😕

Martha said...

This was a horrible level for me. If I could get the bombs destroyed, I only had about 200,000 points. This happened many times. Then, all of a sudden I got the bombs destroyed and had over 400,000 points. But no Sugar Crush! So I was afraid that there was something I was missing so i very cautiously played on. At the end I had over 621,000 points. It gave me the win....but I have no idea how I achieved it to help others. Best I can guess is a "Lucky Board"??
Horrible Level!!!!

I posted a comment a day or so ago and still stuck I have played on iPad and computer and I am even more convinced that they want me to give in and pay for extra moves or buy special candy. Bored now.

Absolutely HORRIFIC!

Anonymous said...

That's it I posted twice now and after four days I have finally had to give in and buy some hammers, just couldn't take it anymore and I guess that is what they wanted. I will carry on as I used to enjoy this game so much but for this level I have been playing both ipad and computer and still not got anywhere. I think I need to join a support group. Next time I get as stuck as this and I have to buy myself through I will give up.

Is this level bothering anyone else's eyes with all those bombs flashing at the end?

Thanks to Lucia for the extra tip - lost many lives before I read it and then got it straight away.

Days and no luck too many bombs not to mention the stupidity of changing colors so when you do get a match lined up the color changes. So tired of this board.

I eventually managed to clear all the bombs but didn't score enough points. Next try I managed to make three sprinkles and used each on a bomb colour and passed but only just with 405k.

Chameleon boards are really nauseating if you have a tendency to migraines. I find it really difficult to keep looking at the board. Ridiculous idea from King.

Odd. I had never thought that setting off a candy ball early in the game would give me minimal points. In fact, I got quite a lot of points when starting off with the booster. Plus it unlocked time bombs making them easier to destroy later in the game. And getting rid of the time bombs is crucial. Then it's just a matter of getting a couple candy balls. The next time I played after reading the comments, I got a couple candy balls, each of which got me a lot of points, though I can't say that I got more than from the booster within the first few moves. Though you do have to clear any remaining time bombs (I used a hammer to get the last one as it was about to explode) as you will continue to play until all of the moves have been exhausted, giving you the opportunity to get two or three stars. I just got the one, but who cares. I keep reminding myself that no matter how difficult the level, I will eventually make it through. But this did not take nearly as many attempts as many others I've played did.

Anonymous said...

No way! Either you get the score but because you haven't played all the moves you lose, even if your bombs haven't exploded yet, or you finish with all your bombs but the score never reaches the 400000 points.
RIDICULOUS! Can't you make it more fun King people over there? I've quitted a lot of your games; it's about time to quit CC. Phew...
