Candy Crush Saga Level 1879

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 1879 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
This can be an extremely frustrating level. At the time of writing the lucky candies can just as often turn into cream blockers as yellows and as there are only three lucky candies if you get one turning into a blocker you may as well quit and start again.
First you need to unlock the lucky candies from the marmalade, then clear enough cream blockers to allow them to fall through the teleports onto the main part of the board where they can be matched and collected, providing they change into yellows.
You could try clearing all the blockers first so they will definitely change into yellows, or use a lucky candy booster which might give you a better chance of getting the yellows you need.
I was lucky and passed on the first try, but have since played several games to see what proportion of games gave yellows. I found that one game in four gave me the three yellows and the other three gave blocks.

I have played the level about 20 times and I haven't seen 3 yellow candies once!'
I have tried hitting the lucky candies early, I have tried clearing most of the cream before I free them. Nothing seems to make a difference. And most of the time, it is the last lucky candy that turns out to be a cream blocker.
I will never think of these as "Lucky Candies" again!

Quite right. The candies turn into blockers. The King people merely want us to use the lucky candies they so generously provide us with.

Mrs. M said...

Well, as I see it, you have to try the lucky candies due to the fact that there are only 2 yellows on the board. Am I right? I dunno.

Mrs. M said...

Never mind, I'm confused. Is it any wonder?

Lucia said...

I got lucky (though not on my first try) and got a board where all three lucky candies turned to yellows. That's about the only way to do this one without boosters, as it's all but impossible to clear all the blockers first.

It took a few tries to get that lucky board, but I didn't find this level nearly so hard as a couple of others in this episode, like 1875, which according to the tips is easy-peasy.

All 5 lives I played the special candies were cream blockers. How is this fair?

Sue said...

Hi everyone if you find 4 yellow ones can you send me 1 as I have lost 1 somewhere this level is doing my head in...well done King..

Mustak Ahmed said...

I cleared all the blockers first then yellow candies. I used one hammer though.

Anonymous said...

I used a lucky candy booster and the lucky candies kept dropping. Using one booster I must of have gotten 9-10 lucky candies on the board in 3 of them turned yellow. Color me confused and happy.

Anonymous said...

Used a mystery booster, which put out a bunch of them while I was clearing the rest of the board. While some of them did turn to icing too, enough of them turned yellow to win this level easily.

What is a lucky candy booster and how come I have got this far without knowing? I have only ever got 1 yellow????

Jeff said...

The lucky candy booster is the one you select before playing that has the checkmark. It will provide a number (varies) of lucky candies throughout the game that will turn into something you need. In this game, they will turn into either a yellow candy or a cream blocker, since you need a number of each of those. The board usually starts with just one lucky candy, but as you play you will get more - sometimes huge cascades of them!

I have been stuck on this level for four days now. I have never gotten three yellow candies. I have also used three boosters (checkmark candy) and still no three yellow candies. VERY frustrating.

Got this on my first try. Got one check candy with a stripe and other two with chocolate sprinkles. After clearing top blockers they drop through to main board and when matched with candies of same color turn into yellows. I used two Lollipop hammers with two moves left to clear two blockers which then set up moves to get the last two blockers.

I've played 13 times this morning and not once have the check-marked candies all turned yellow. I've probably played 50 times in total and I've only seen them all turn yellow once. Of course, I got nowhere near clearing the cream blockers on that occasion, although normally the blockers aren't a problem. This level is ridiculous. I usually end up killing the game after around 10 moves. Not fun, not fun at all. Guess I'll just have to wait for CC to give me a check-mark on the daily spin...

Kevin said...

Typically,the very next go I passed it easily. Go figure! Hey ho, onwards and upwards fellow crushers...

Fritz said...

The way to play this level is to try and clear the cream blockers first. When you reach that goal the checkmark/lucky candies will allways turn into a yellow candy. Before clearing the cream blockers there's a 50% chance the checkmark candy will turn into a cream blocker and then you can start again.

Mieke said...

I cleared the level, so 3 yellow candies, ended with 3 stars. Well done, but than it turned out that I didn't achieve the level. No idea why. Maybe bug in the mobile version (again!!!!)

Anonymous said...

I can't believe I blew up lots of blockers, and got three yellows, only to find I didn't get quite enough blockers. The pain!

Anonymous said...

We're all experienced players or we wouldn't have made it this far. So this is the question. Do we want to play more Candy Crush or do we want to play the same Candy Crush over and over. Once I asked myself this it was a little easier to accept the really frustrating and stupid (and yes, this level was stupid) levels as programmers tried to give us new CC games rather than the same ones over and over. And it takes time to create new games, so I suspect that the timed levels are intended to slow us down. Having said that, I use boosters freely--and I never pay for them. Use a special candy booster on this one. Hopefully it will generate enough special candies to get 3 yellows.

SharonH said...

If you give us goals, at least make them possible. I, along with many others find that we seldome, if ever get 3 yellow and when we are lucky enough to get one every 50 tries or so, we can't clear the board...We can't have it both ways! Out of the dozens of my friends I used to play with, only one remains and she may soon be alone! A challenge, I'm up for it, stupidity, NOT!

Anonymous said...

Success! I may have figured it out. If I hit the checked candies with a stripe and wrap, they turned to a cream. If I hit that color of check with a sprinkle, it turned yellow! Sometimes just one stripe also worked, but never did a combo wrap and stripe. That worked for me, but maybe I was just lucky that this happened!

Anonymous said...

Check mark candies, by definition, turn into something you need. You need both yellow and cream for this level. Meet the cream requirement first and then they will only turn yellow.

On iPad you only get 27 moves instead of 35. :-@
Not fair....again!
Luckily passed this level by using the v- check.
HOORRAAAAAH!

This level is purely based on luck ~ whether all 3 check mark candies turn into yellow candies. Finally pass it with no boosters but a lucky board.

Anonymous said...

Crazy that the goal is to collect yellow candies when it is pure luck whether you get any or not. I object to being told I have failed when there's no chance of winning till that lucky board comes along. I'm posting for luck. Annie

Thanks for how to use check mark booster. I got it on iPad first time. Carol the elder

Sage said...

Sage here. Now that I have read the comments I now know that I have been running into 'hiccups' too regarding the yellow candies. Check mark candies turning into cream time and time again instead of yellow candies. Smh.

Sage said...

I agree.

Sage said...

Makes sense. Just wish I didn't spend soooooo much money. I envy crushers who don't spend money.

Anonymous said...

I'm another one not getting three yellow candies. Getting many 3-star games, but only with two yellow candies.

@the person above me: don't fall into their trap by spending money!!!

I've had yellow candies turn into cream blockers too... Really???? Once yellow it should start yellow. Be careful there!

I passed it after stuck for a few days. Pass it without using any boosters. The advice to remove the blockers first is correct. At least i removed until hitting the quota, then start unwrapping the candies.

Crusher said...

Thanks!

Nora Craven said...

Use one of the mystery candy boosters if you have one. This level is really fun if you do.

Carol Nickell said...

i emailing them ... "In order to pass this level, you will need to collect the order for all 75 Frosting before you unlock the Lucky Candies. This way the 3 Lucky Candies will then always give you the yellow Candies you need to complete the order and beat the level.

If you unlock a Lucky Candy too early, it may give you a yellow Candy, but it could also give you a Frosting. As there are only 3 Lucky Candies and you need 3 yellow Candies, make sure to complete the Frosting order before using the Lucky Candies"

Tried using the check boosters I'd won earlier and they mostly just turned into cream blockers. Then tried getting the cream blocker score first before converting the onboard check marked candies. This worked. They all turned yellow. Must confess I then used three hammers I'd won on the wheel or via a treasure chest to knock them on the head. I'm using an iPad and the app. God luck all. h.

CCAddict said...

Geez ...just before playing this level I couldn't get into the game.When I eventually could ALL my boosters were GONE !!!! ( tempted to swear) Play...confused...need only one yellow but none on the board.Come here...okay...check booster may help...mine DISSAPPEARED....as mentioned.Noooo man!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Try hitting the check (tick) booster with a sprinkle booster & it will turn yellow. Then for me other checks turned yellow. I had to buy 5 more moves to complete the level. NC

CCAddict said...

TICK BOOSTER TICK BOOSTER TICK BOOSTER !! THANKS!!!! DIDNT HAVE ANY PREVIOUSLY ! Nothing else works....unless you like being majorly frustrated!

This is ridiculous. Cream blocker again and again and again into infinity.

One word, Garbage!

B.K.Arora said...

Sorry, even with sprinkler it turns into blocker; not yellow candy.

Nigel said...

How can a game that doesn't even provide you with the target (3 pears) be fair? I'm out of here. King are a bunch of sh1ts!

Nigel said...

P.S. I play on iPad. Is it any fairer on PC?

Anonymous said...

This level is actually fun, and requires some skill, not luck, once you understand how to do it. Clear the required number of blockers first, then the check candies will turn to yellow candies when released. The skill is a) collecting the blockers, b) not releasing the checks too early, and c) not running out of moves too soon. Relax, and enjoy a game that requires skill for a change. Such a sense of achievement when you do pass. Good luck candy crushing friends, and enjoy the challenge!

sprocket2 said...

I tried hitting the checked candies in the game with stripes, stripe/wrap combos and sprinkle balls. Sometimes they turned yellow but more often than not they turned into another creme candy. I used the check booster and although one of them turned into a creme also two others turned into yellow candies. Then one of the checked candies on the board turned into a yellow also. I would definitely used the check booster if you have them. I happen to have had quite a few that I've collected for free. I don't use them too often because a lot because when you need to collect multiple things (licorice, chocolate and sprinkle balls for instance), I find they often turn into things I REALLY don't want like another popcorn. In this game they were useful though. Good Luck!

Anonymous said...

I'm on the fun bandwagon...you just have to clear enough of the blockers to open the portals at the top, then the special candies comes pouring down. passed with no boosters

Valerie Cagle said...

No idea how you got lucky enough to pass this level on one try. My " lucky" candies turn into creams,more often than not even in the column where they need to be. Then no more lucky candies appear. Total glitchy level in my opinion, and CC never replies to support complaints.

Cookie73 said...

Me, too! Why bother with strategy when the odds of obtaining the required # of yellow candies is 50/50.

Anonymous said...

OMG! There is clearly a problem with this level.....
I can get 3 yellow candies to show up (about once every 5 games played & the rest of the time they turn into blockers) but when I destroy them the game does not correctly register each one as removed. So although I may hv destroyed 3, the game still says I have 1 more to go :( :( :(

Mary Louise said...

How in the name of all that is holy can you possibly pass this level. I have played countless times and have yet to get 3 yellow. I always get a cream blocker. I have no bonus special candies so there is no possible way I can pass. Whey would there even be a cream blocker when this level is hard enough without them. How frustrating.

Andulamb said...

People need to get past the idea that these high Candy Crush levels should be easily passed without using boosters. Why do you think there are so many ways to win boosters? Because they're necessary. This is a perfect level for using the Lucky Candy booster -- so use it!

Anonymous said...

King is cheating. Where's the official rule that says candies can turn into creams? A player can't strategize moves if the rules just change randomly. The way I understand this games is if you HIT a particular candy you are to get counted for that EXACT candy. If I hit a yellow candy I should get counted for a yellow candy, not a blue one or a red one, I should not a get counted for a blocker or a bomb or any other type of candy or blocker or anything else - because I hit YELLOW. DUH! Games work on the concept of a list of rules. If a game-maker decides to change a rule they should let the player know about the rule change. It's the right and decent thing to do. King, instead, penalizes the player for not knowing they changed the way the game works. This causes the player to LOSE. it's cheating!

Anonymous said...

Same here. It didn't turn into a yellow or a blocker - just disappeared. BS

Anonymous said...

Here we go again only 27 moves not 35 as in video. Come on King tired of been penalized for playing on mobile. This level is shit :(

Lorraine said...

This is impossible. One yellow always turn to blocker can't win with only 2 yellows. Come on King this is ridiculous. Fed up time to quit soon if King can't be fair.

Anonymous said...

I am this close to uninstalling CC forever. What an asinine level. No fun anymore.

Anonymous said...

Clear the blockers...don't clear the blockers. Hit the lucky candies...don't hit them...when the game doesn't even give you a chance regardless, seems very unfair. I don't mind hard, I do mind impossible.

Anonymous said...

Lucky those who passed this level and moved on IMPOSSIBLE for me.

Anonymous said...

Thank you. After playing many games and not getting enough yellows, I used the check mark booster and won with the use of just an additional hammer.

Anonymous said...

Cleared the board....used a tick and no 3rd yellow...What's up?

angellashelle said...

Positive advice, thank you!

No one important said...

fun, not frustrating , passed on iPad used hammer lollipop booster to get last yellow, after reading tips here of coarse! Thanks to all you tipsters­čśÄ

First try, three stars. Started with a check and color bomb booster. The check turned yellow, and I got another color bomb next to the one I started with (carefully done by using sheer luck). The rest largely resembled luck, but I'll take luck any day.

Wow this is one crazy hard board.AWWWWWWWW

I used my checked boosters and the stupid thing turned to block what the heck. I hate this one

bluemoon said...

I have cleared the blockers and had 10 moves left with no yellows in sight to complete the game. Twice now. Grrrr. What is the key to getting yellows or checked boosters down? Cascades didn't do it.

Anonymous said...

Been playing for several days now and in every single game at least one yellow candy in each game has changed to a cream blocker therefore making the game impossible!
Don't really know where to go from here but it's as if King doesn't want me to play anymore!?

Anonymous said...

I am the posted above! After posting I read back through the comments and found one that said get the blockers first. Concentrated on this and hey presto it worked!
Try really hard not to hit the yellows at all until you have all the blockers you need.
Finished after winning 5 extra moves but didn't need to use any boosters.

Hal said...

After about 50 attempts, I decided to try making the "lucky" candies fall intomatches to unlock the yellow instead of triggering it with the match my move made. Not sure if that is the trick because I don't want to play that level EVER again, but it worked the first try.

Anonymous said...

I agree with friend saying " use your boosters!" You get so many daily! Use them and give us advice without nagging! Ty! Elderly!

Wpalatka said...

Really???? Just keep hitting the END button. No need to even try when that first check turns into a blocker. This is beyond "waiting for a lucky board". This is crazy.

Spirikitik said...

cleared all the blockers......no yellow candies around.

Anonymous said...

First try.used a tick booster that turned yellow. Made stripes to hit the ticks under jelly , they too went yellow. Then out of nowhere 2 bombs dropped next to each other which almost cleared board. Woo hoo

Judie said...

I finally got this one and all I can say is I did not see anything special happening except perhaps a lucky board that helped to wipe out all blockers. As for the yellows...it just happened I got the 3 of them. This was played on my pc at Facebook.

KEVIN said...

Deliberate sabotage to prevent passing this level...Not cool CC! Will wait it out.

Caro said...

This is one of the stupidest levels in a long time.

Anonymous said...

I have two hours of play and have made many attempts at this stupid level. Only once have I had three yellows from the mystery candies but when I blew up one of them with a striped/wrapped it disappeared but didn't register.

Anonymous said...

Got three yellows on the next attempt and used the hammers on them. Not the ideal way to pass a level but it could have been a long time before I got three yellows again.

Anonymous said...

As soon as I get screwed with an unlucky candy turning into a block - I just play for drops. Bad part is im going to be at my time out soon cause this levels sucks so much! Good for drops though.
