Candy Crush Saga Level 1881

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 1881 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Unless you are very good at moving ingredients around, or have plenty of switch hands, don't move the ingredients out of their columns at the sides, if you move them once you will need to move them again.
Occasionally one or other of the ingredients slips out of it's column and you can hopefully move it back into a column with an exit, but you don't want to be moving them around if you don't have to.,
First you will need vertical stripes and strip/wrap combos to grow the popcorns and clear the blockers, then when you have space at the bottom make sideways stripes and drop them to the bottom, where you can use them to hit the popcorns at each side.
If you can get a colour bomb/stripe combo make sure you have some candies the same colour as the stripe in line with the popcorns to give you a chance of hitting them otherwise your colour bomb will be wasted.
A useful booster for this level is a coconut wheel.

I am on level 1881 but there is a treasure chest on the spot and won't move to allow me to play. This has never happened before, but I completed level 1880 once before and the same thing happened so I had to resolve 1880. How do I move on?

Click on the treasure chest. It should open to claim your prize. If not, slip your mouse under the sliver of the circle showing beneath the chest. Try clicking all around the chest. It will eventually open.

I can't seem to grow the side popcorns to drop the items. Arrgg :(

refresh the game and the treasure chest will be gone.

Just passed it, 3rd try. The first two attempts were before I read the tips here. I left all the ingredients in the original columns. I used two color bomb/stripe combos and got lucky with another color bomb popping up next to a wrap. The latter of which is my favorite strategy to use on the popcorns.

Just curious where you are all located! This episode only came out on my iPhone about half an hour go! I'm in England

^^^ this episode showed up about an hour ago. I live just outside of Toronto Ontario Canada. The previous episode appeared late in the afternoon. I only play on my iPad.

I notice that the time comments are posted is not accurate.
Annie, whose post has now disappeared, says she has to ask friends/wait 12 hours/or pay to open the episode. Never heard of that! It was the first time I'd ever got to the end of an episode and had to wait for the next one. I was very pleased with myself. Serious addict 😏

Posting for luck. Can't get the side popcorns to pop. May have to resort to a coconut wheel. I always like to try without boosters first.

Got the side popcorns to pop but because the fruit were right on top of them, couldn't get rid of the powerballs. That was the only time I've been able to get that close.

I was getting nowhere with Cookie's strategy on this one so I tried a different approach. I moved both side ingredients closer to the centre and I also moved the middle ingredients one column closer to the centre where possible. I didn't bother bringing any single ingredients down until the ingredients were either in the same column or neighbouring columns late in the game. Some boards have a switch available from the start and it's worth resetting to get one like that, and making further switches on those boards was possible. I concentrated on one side first, then the other. I didn't have any hand switch boosters. You do need to check for switch opportunities before every move! It was a lot easier than popping those side popcorns! I passed on my 3rd attempt of using this strategy.

Thank you!! I was about to give up on this level and tried your strategy and it worked the first try! Very easy!

extra moves and two hammers, cuz the two of the fruits were sitting on top of the sprinkles to the far right and left. stupid

Restart your device

posting for luck... So far not so good

I used a coconut wheel and reset until I could blast down on one of the sides. Then two sprinkle ball/stripe combos helped get the rest. After you pop the popcorn, you have to use horizontal stripes on the bottom to get the sprinkle to explode and clear the way for the fruit. This was definitely a hard level! I couldn't come close til I used the coconut wheel.

michelle mcbride said...

No luck since posting... Just tired of this ....

michelle mcbride said...

have tried many... Just not getting anywhere

michelle mcbride said...

Lucky board... Finally 4 days later
Phew.... that sucked

This level blows!!!

they need to change this. it is virutally impossible to break all the popcorn and equally worthless to try to move the candies in the side columns. The level is NOT fun.

Coconut wheel is not working for me.....grrrr!

Not liking this level AT ALL!

This is by far the worst level for many episodes. I've played using a 6 hour free spot and have never got more than two fruit down. I've tried coconut wheels (useless) and every which way including moving, not moving and every other ploy I can think of.
Most definitely waiting for the lucky board.

The only way to get the outside fruit is by attacking the popcorn from the side. I eventually used the coconut wheel and managed to get one downward hit onto a popcorn one side of the board with the first one. After that I dropped the coconut wheel down to three rows off the bottom to hit both outside popcorn. I still needed a couple of hammers and a hand swap but I'd had enough of this level.
