Candy Crush Saga Level 1949

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 1949 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
You have to grow the 5 popcorns and collect 15 licorice to complete level 1949 Candy Crush Saga.
You won't get any licorice until you have cleared some of the popcorns so the licorice can fall down, so this has to be your priority.
A colour bomb/stripe combo might do some damage to the popcorns, but a wrap switched with the colour bomb may be better as in my experience the stripes rarely go where you need them.
Failing that just keep using stripes and strip/wrap combos which you can get into position using the conveyor.
The bombs shouldn't cause you any problem but they will help to increase your score if you clear enough of them.
Level 1949 only has 26 moves, so you can't afford to waste them, only make stripes where they will do some good. It's a waste of moves to make specials where they are unlikely to hit a popcorn, look for a better move. Wrapped candies detonated close to the popcorns are better than a stripe elsewhere.

Okay, only have 26 moves on android. Like it isn't hard enough already breaking all the popcorn but also have to get 15 licorice....

Cake said...

Truly miss the days when you had to collect colour candies in these order levels in stead of popcorn and even more annoying licorice..

Used sprinkle booster matched with stripe booster.

Very easy on pc with 44 moves

5 popcorns that have to be hit 5 times each with only 26 moves! Not happening.

THIS CAN'T BE DONE IN 26 MOVES! EVEN WITH ALL BOOSTERS THROWN IN! FIX THIS KING!

julie nickl said...

Beat this on iPhone using sprinkle next to stripe. Once you have all the popcorn gone the licorice falls down so that's not a problem. I knew this would be hard to beat with no boosters!

Anonymous said...

I have done this SEVERAL times with sprinke/stripe, sprinkle /sprinkle, sprinkle /wrap, .....Fuck it!

sprocket2 said...

Again, weirdly, I finished this with one popcorn left on the board. I did have check mark boosters in play but they never turned into a popcorn. I also started with a striped and sprinkle ball booster and found I had the opportunity to make several other stripe/sprinkle combos during the game and those exploded all but the one popcorn and got the sprinkle balls formed by the popcorn out of the dispensing area so the licorice could fall out. IPhone, 26 moves, one popcorn left at the end of the game. Is this happening to anyone else?

Ok, let me get this straight..... On iPad there are 26 moves to clear 5 popcorns and collect 15 licorice! Each popcorn has to be hit 5 times to break! 5 x 5 = 25 !!! So every popcorn has to be hit EVERY TIME EXCEPT ONE!!! And then you get one move to collect 15 licorice!! Are you absolutely kidding me!! I guess you really want us to quit playing or are you just idiots!! Good bye King, I'm done!!!

On iPad, I used all three boosters. Still needed lick each at the end with sprinkle/stripe start, but had lucky board with sprinkle/wrapped - exploded popcorn sprinkle landed next to another sprinkle. Did that combo and after making another sprinkle, opened a popcorn to have it fall next to the sprinkle. One more of those and I just had to wait for enough licorice to fall. Luck.

stephanie said...

Again, read the tips and played on my computer. So easy! WTF? Frustrating to have totally different game on iPhone.

SharonH said...

I am with anonymous who did the math, proving nearly impossible on.ipad and iPhone with the moves given.imhave double choco balls next to each other twice in the game with them doing nothing to help clear the popcorn. Posting for luck, and I'll need plenty! Please King, when are you ever going to make your levels harder on the PC then Mobil???? My guess, NEVER!

Crushed said...

And again KING has decided to handicap the mobile users by only giving them 26 moves!!!! WTF King?!?!?!
With only 26 moves I don't see how it is possible!!!
And I've noticed that you can not rely on the candies to drop the same way when they are cascading, sometimes they shift differently than the time before. Which makes it even harder to create wrapped or striped candies.
Don't know about the rest of the mobile users but it seems near impossible to create wrapped candies let alone color bombs and get them next to each other.

I have a great 'tip'. This level is impossible to complete on an iPad or iPhone as one only gets 26 moves whereas on PC get 44. It is the definition of insanity, you know, expecting a different result. Why the disparity King? Makes no sense!

Gemini said...

I played ALL day long Sunday on my Kindle because the treasure chests gave me a combined total of 10 free hrs. I played on my PC this a.m. and beat this level on the 3rd time. Treasure chests on my iPhone don't have free time. Clearly CC has it out for phone users.

And said...

Nothing is impossible but some rare levels it's just best to rest until they fix it for cell phone users.
This level is wait for fix

I have three different devices that I play Candy Crush on... my PC, my android phone and Kindle. Until recently all the devices were in sync but now I have to play each level on each one to advance. Does anyone else have this issue? Also Level 1949 is impossible.

Anonymous said...

I dun have this issue. I also make sure my Android version sync successfully b4 i start the game. Btw, fb now is 26 moves also, yet its easier than Android version.

Anonymous said...

I thought you only had to hit popcorn 3 times, not 5 times. PC now has same number of moves, but there is no resetting like on mobile.

gofer said...

Impossible, played for 2 wks over 200x, not enough moves...never once got all popcorns...I give up.

Please show a video of passing this level with 26 moves. Once again we are disadvantaged for not being as fast as others to progress. Don't mind seeing the videos for the ones first to get there but an amended video would also be helpful

Candyman said...

spot on Katie - we strive to get on in the game just to be shafted

Candyman said...

On get 26 as in Android - very frustrating

Anonymous said...

Finally passed by using a check mark booster. If you match one on the conveyor belt, it will immediately turn into a chocolate sprinkle and count towards your popcorn total. The hardest thing for me was getting enough licorice to drop, but the check mark helped with that too.

Anonymous said...

I'm on PC, still only got 26 moves. Just waiting the "lucky board"

Rhea said...

Hated this level! Used hammers to finish off 3 popcorn & 5 extra moves to get last 3 licorice. Good Riddance

Linda B said...

Good idea. I'm ready to delete the whole app on my phone. The game comes up word on my Surface tablet and after working on a PC all day, I rarely turn it on. I need to go find another addiction....

Anonymous said...

Brutal level, but I liked it a lot. After weeks of trying (chests don't have extra time anymore for some reason), I finally gave in and finished it using extra stripe/wrap combo and bombs. Lots of strategy, not just another one of those 'wait and finally get lucky' levels - but luck helps. Stripe plus bomb is best; wrappers in the tops corners are good. And it's just so wrong when you get double bombs and still can't win!!
I deleted the game from my phone and playing on 2 iPads, which have remained synced so far, but they do change things up a lot.
They must be doing something right - I've played this long and still can't put it down, much as I say I will.

Lorraine said...

Penalized again for using Android. Only 26 moves. You got to be kidding me. Impossible. Really getting over these impossible levels. I only have Android so i guess i will never pass this level. Ridiculous. Come on King be fair and make it the same no matter what you play on. :(

Anonymous said...

Well, I guess King decided to answer the question of why the difference between Android and PC on the number of moves, and reduced the PC moves down to 26. Now it's nearly impossible no matter how you play it!

michelle mcbride said...

Agreed

Posting for luck as I'm getting nowhere with this, on Android or on PC.

.....And 9 games later I got my lucky board, and without using boosters. Only 1 star, but glad to be moving on.

Livia Saunders said...

Popcorns need three hits each

So today for the upteenth time ALL my help aids have disappeared AGAIN!!!! But never fear people because I have been hacking the extra moves wheel daily and get most of them back!!! Just keep pressing stop continually and the wheel spins over and over again. I spun 37 times and got 75 extra moves today plus supplies of colour bombs, fish etc. Good luck folks.

I love coming to this forum to read all the complaints. How did you get this far if you weren't a skilled Candy Crush player already? Unless, you foolishly bought bonuses. I have this feeling that if you buy something, then they track that and continue to make things harder for you, so you have to continue buying stuff. Supply vs. Demand.

I seriously need help been stuck on this level for over a week!

I can't complete this level. Its impossible to complete it in 26 moves. Even on pc I got only 26 moves. King it sucks!!

Anonymous said...

King lost it, totally. The developers of Candy Crush Saga can jolly well say goodbye to their year end bonuses

Reply to my self... I passed it! Used every booster I had to start with, haven't paid a dime :) that level was awful, glad to put it behind me.

I'm finding this level really difficult on the iPhone, would say i'm not sure it's possible, but someone has posted that it is. 😳

richard e G said...

This is a hard level without the use of boosters. The check booster produces popcorn where it can be got at much easier. Completed this horrid level with it!

Anonymous said...

My pc has 26 moves, same as my phone. Gotta love it when I'm close to beating it not once, but twice and both times the app crashed. Nice. Anyway, this game is no longer fun. Minimal moves for next to impossible goals...and what's up with all the timed levels?! Time to find another game to waste my time on!

Anonymous said...

I agree with all the other comments.Level 1945 cannot be passed.Lucky board waiting again.I can't even make myself finish.After a few moves you Know you can't pass so just exit.This game is no longer fun or fair.I kept hoping maybe it would go back to a fair game , but looks like that isn't going to happen.We all need to move on to another game for awhile and maybe CC will become a real game again.26 moves to clear 5 pop corns.yeah right.And don't use a check booster.It's another popcorn in your way.What a joke !

Anonymous said...

Can't get anywhere near beating this one. The most I've gotten is two popcorns

Vinda said...

I have been playing this level for a week now (nearly 400+ attempts) and still not able to finish it. I used 9 Gold bars to get 5 extra moves and the closest i came was 1 licorice left. Damn i should have hammered it. Now i dont have Gold bars left to get extra moves. I think i will stop playing now. Goodbye King

Anonymous said...

This is definitely one of those impossible boards that you just can't win till king decides you've played enough times and gives you the lucky board. I'm getting nowhere.

Jennifer Eken said...

This level was awful. I decided I was competing it no matter what, and used an insane amount of free boosters and gold bars to do it.

Read all tips, nothing helped! Tick gave me just ONE licorice. Sprinkle +stripe (3 x) never hit the popcorn. So I used 10 hammers to hit the popcorn, the licorice was easy. Finally passed it. Good luck all

26 steps can not be done! Someone help?
