Candy Crush Saga Level 1886

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 1886 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Level 1886 is one of the hardest levels in this episode.
You need to clear all the blockers both at the bottom to release the ingredients and at the top to allow them to fall through onto the main part of the board.
Stripe/wrap combos are good, as are colour bomb/stripe combos, but you will need several of them to break through all the blockers.
First clear a few blocks at the top if you can, then concentrate on making vertical stripes and stripe/wrap combos, but all the time you need to be looking for colour bombs to switch with your stripes.
Colour bomb/wrap combos are no good to you at all until you have some candies in the bottom next to the blockers when the wraps will break the blockers.
I have tried several different boosters on this level and found none to be especially helpful from the start, although you can use hands and hammers to move the fruit around and clear blockers if you are struggling.

  1. Let the comments flow...Most difficult aspect is that the cascades don't help you clear blockers to the far left and right so you are almost entirely dependent on combo's which are great when they come but not so good when you don't have enough moves to make them yourself. I expect to read lots of cursing, threats to quit, and pleas to the creators for changes that may or may not come as they continue to thin out the herd of top tier players.

    Cheers

  2. This is a pig of a level, I watched a successful attempt where they used teeth and lollipops, ah well keep plugging away.

  3. Impossible. I used a bunch of hands and hammers.

  4. no fun, not even a reasonable challenge, terribly boring with no end in sight

  5. So with 30 moves and the help of the video above, I only need 6 color bombs (I know there were 7 total but they are so easy to come by, you don't even need them all!). From those I make; 1 color bomb-stripe combo, 2 color bomb-color bomb combos, and 1 color bomb-wrap combo to complete this level with a move to spare. Of course the board also needs to come equipped with a color bomb ready to go from the start. Seems simple enough...

  6. And this is not listed as a "hard level"?

  7. Don't expect curses and threats. Most rational people stopped playing a long time ago. This entire set is full of boards that shuffle twice before claiming that there are no more moves, viz. a 2 second game. Obviously no one actually tests these before publishing them. Good luck everyone because luck is all you need. currently stuck on level 1888 (timed -what else) and wishing I was free of this addiction.

  8. Another worthless board, no fun. after countless tries feel like giving up until they make it playable. but wont quit , have come this far

  9. Level 1887 seems to have a glitch. After a few moves the game ends as there are no more moves. This has happened after only 1 move quite a few times. Don't use boosters as you'll lose them. Really tired of these glitches !!!!

    ReplyDelete
  10. quite impossible to clear the level, make it too difficult too clear. Many of my friends already quit candy crush, feel like quitting. Also, the number of comments getting lesser, which mean very likely many had left

  11. Just go.............. we don't need to know you are going please!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Several days on this level now and not even close.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I think I'll wait until this is changed, nearest I have ever got is two ingredients out, getting fed up of playing the same old level time after time after time after time after time, the FUN element is being LOST, grrrrr!!!! :'(

    ReplyDelete
  14. Not even close!! Bored now!!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I only passed this level because I used a coconut wheel at the beginning, and pure lucky board after that. I managed to get 2 coconut/rainbow candy combos going horizontal but, made sure the combos were not in the first two top rows as no candy falls there when the icing is present. I had 16 moves left when I finished. Good luck everyone!

    ReplyDelete
  16. FINALLY! I ended up doing it after much frustration, but feel like I had to 'cheat' by using a ton of boosters, 3 hand switches and 6 lolly hammers, now I have none left, not happy at all, grrrr!!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I don't have a problem with King giving us difficult boards, but I do have a problem with impossible, unreasonable boards. It appears that we have become their unpaid (or, even worse, paying) beta testers. It has happened too often. They put out an impossible board, then, after the complaints come in for a couple of weeks, change it when the Android version comes out. If they tested them first, they would make the adjustments before putting them out. Anybody have different thoughts?

    ReplyDelete
  18. I was so sick of this level that I had to use 7 hammers, one switch, the coconut wheel and extra lives to complete it. But it's done and I can move on. Too bad this game is so addictive.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Just got the lucky board. Had to use 3 hammers, but nothing else. Kept getting chocolate balls and was able to combine them with stripes. Used all 3 hammers to clear the bottom left-hand blocker. I don't even feel good about it; it was just luck. Any of you would have done the same thing. On to the next nightmare, what ever board that is.......

    ReplyDelete
  20. ....and it would appear to be level 1887. Sheesh.

    ReplyDelete
  21. With the help of 1 hand and one lolly I managed to get 2 times a 2 colour bomb combination. With the 3 extra moves I received I'm happy to have passed this horrible level with one move left. I'm so happy to have passed thid isgusting level!

    Good luck from the Netherlands!

  22. NO BOOSTERS!!! Sure, I played for a week, but I eventually got the magic board and with one move left was able to flush out the last cherry. I have trouble understanding how anyone getting to this level can complain about insanely hard levels. Sure, it takes a lot of patience, but if you play every board smartly, eventually smarts + lucky board = success. I get more satisfaction out of a board that I have played for a week than some of the levels on which I succeed the first time.

    1. You are indeed lucky. Obviously, players at this level are all skilled. Congratulations on getting your lucky board sooner than others.

  23. Looks like another pat to pass level to me. Getting tired of it.

    ReplyDelete
  24. A hopeless level unless you have a lot of boosters or money to buy them

    ReplyDelete
  25. 5 switches and a coconut wheel. Done... first try.... didn't want to be stuck for days... onward crushers!

    ReplyDelete
  26. 4 lollipops and 3 hands. I was done trying. So when I got even remotely close, I broke out the boosters. I need to go play old levels again.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Find this a 'wee' bit difficult. :-)Then I saw 26 comments (which is a lot at this level) and knew I was not alone. Have also found that nothing seems to do anything and am wondering how to complete this one. I have just used up most of my hammers and switches in a previous rotten level so I have to re-visit 1476 for a while to rebuild my boosters. Grace from DU

  28. Actually tired of trying this level... Candy break for me, not even close to passing it!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Maybe if I had 30 extra moves or a miracle it would happen

    ReplyDelete
  30. Shame on Candy Crush to put that level out there. I got lucky and got two sprinkle balls next to each other. Then was able to use a hand switch to get two more sprinkle balls next to each other. Still needed to use 6-7 additional hand switches/lollipops. I know they give us lots of free boosters, but I don't like using so many on one level just to get through.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Pffffffft!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Just made it! Had to use 2 switches and a lollipop.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Finally passed this level, until i have to use 1 colour bomb and 1 coconut ring (previously not using them before) then switch them together to get a row of vertical strips for 1st wave of blast to save my moves for rest of them.
    Then carefully workout with combination of colour bomb and strip; and another pair of colour bomb and strip; and a pair of strip & wrap for last cherry ingredient to get thro...

    what a horrible level!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Horrible level. I had to use 2 hand switches, 9 gold bars to get more moves and 2 lollipop hammers to finally pass it.

    ReplyDelete
  35. not getting anywhere after more than a week. It clearly wants me to buy some coconut wheels, but since the one I just used (free) only gave me one chance to use it then that's not happening. may just step away until Wednesday as I have tons of boosters on iPad :(

    ReplyDelete
  36. Enough already. I am bored to tears with this level and haven't played for days! I have had my share of frustration with some levels, but this one takes the cake for me. I have no interest in even playing anymore. And, for those of you that seem to be annoyed with people "complaining" about the hard levels...there's no need to bash people for expressing their frustration on ridiculously rigged boards that require no skill and all luck to complete. This is a place where those of us that have made it this far should be able to come and vent our frustrations and have others understand. People threaten to quit when they are frustrated, but it's just that - frustration - and most of the time it's understandable.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Most comments agree that this is an almost impossible level. This game is so addictive. Just keep trying.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I honestly am beginning to believe that I will not pass this level. This will be the end of it for me. I will keep trying for a while but when I hit a level like this I refuse to pay money to pass. It is all a money game that I do support occasionally but not this one sorry this is ridiculous.

    ReplyDelete
  39. That's it I am done with Candy crush, this level is impossible. I somehow managed to have 9 gold bars taken although I didn't use them, the game is now rubbish and boring.

    ReplyDelete
  40. i have to waste 20 coconut wheel use one hand swap and lollipop in order to pass this level !

    ReplyDelete
  41. Another frustrating "wait for the lucky board" level. Haven't spent any money so far and don't intend to so I'll just keep on trying and maybe someday I'll pass. I don't care much about this game anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  42. well, at least we've got Cookie, to make videos, for us.... OR most of us, would still be a long way back!

    ReplyDelete
  43. You got to be kidding this is ridiculous

    ReplyDelete
  44. There are so many things wrong with this level it's difficult to know where to start, but here goes:

    There are too many colours.
    The cream blockers to the extreme right hand side need too many hits, especially at the bottom.
    Because of the notch out on either side of the centre at the bottom you can't
    make matches to clear the blockers.
    The cream blockers at the extremities prevent you from making the special candies you need to clear the ones at the bottom.
    There are not enough moves.

    Best I've done, with the help of 2 hammers and a hand switch, is to get down to needing 2 fruits, but I still needed a couple of hits to the cream blockers on either side and then work them down the board. Im not sure that a 'lucky' board would be enough to clear this one. The only way I can see is to have about 10 hammers and 6 hand swaps in your locker, plus a stripe/wrap combo and speckled candy at the start (and even those would have to be in exactly the right places).

    I could go on, but I'm bored of this level. Let's see if the Android version is any better tomorrow (but I'm not holding my breath). Meh!!

  45. Finally passed after about 1 week playing every day many times with no boosters just using my 5 lives and coming back once they restored. Probably the hardest level Ive encountered so far. Got it done on my last move thank god !

  46. Hundreds of tries ..nowhere near.
    First go on Android and done. much easier.

  48. After struggling with this @&%! level for two weeks with no end in sight, it opened up today on my android, and to my amazement and delight it has four colors instead of five. Finished it after a few tries. Whew!!!! I was seriously about to throw my laptop against the wall in frustration after trying it over and over and over and getting absolutely nowhere. Good riddance

    ReplyDelete
  49. Sorry to all the PC players but if you can play on Android.
    Such a fun level. Finished first try, no boosters wih ten moves left and three stars.
    As stated above only four colors and tons of cascades. Good luck everyone.

    Read all the comments so knew I needed to get that right and left. Used a coconut wheel , a couple of hammers and 2 hand switches and done!! Would rather have the old challenges but it seems King instituted the boosters cause you would need them!
    Good luck- it's doable

    ReplyDelete
  51. Used a coconut wheel, that was my only booster....finished with loads of moves left! Lucky !!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Got it on fourth try. I think I used about three bomb-stripe combos.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Thanks for the tips! I started with a wheel and used two hammers at the end. Carol the elder

  54. After reading the comments here, I passed on my second attempt. Yes, I did use two hand switches and one hammer, but at least I won't be bored playing the same thing over and over.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Just did the math, and there's a 1/25,000 chance of getting 8 color bombs like they did.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Ugh. Been playing this level for three weeks and never even been close. I have never paid to play and I won't start now! Ridiculous level.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Second try, with a coconut wheel. Not difficult at all.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Must've gotten a lucky board, got it on second try...keep hanging in there, and good luck to all!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Coconut wheel.... 2nd try.. Moving on
    King looked favorably on me... On to more torture

    ReplyDelete
  60. I must have gotten a lucky board, used coconut wheel got it on first try with 6 moves left and 3 stars.

  61. My lucky day continue, got it on first try, thought it is an easy level, used quite a few of my last moves to gain points, finished with 412,260.

    1. I didn't use any booster.
      I started to attack the bottom.
      I don't think there is any advatage in cookie's advise to start from the top.

  64. Coconut wheel....second try...best of luck from India.

  65. I get to be one of those annoying people that say .... I passed this the first time!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Fun level on Android and good for sugar drops too.
    Makes a nice change. If you struggle use a coconut wheel.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I got this on the second try.

    I used a coconut wheel next to a stripe which gave me a couple more stripes.

    Then I got a sprinkle bomb next to a wrap - so it was a wrap.

    Good luck.
