Candy Crush Saga Level 2266 tips and video

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 2266 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Level 2266 is a timed level, you have to score 60,000 points in 15 seconds to pass.
This may seem like very little time but the time isn't too much of a problem.
The problem is the countdown bombs. Once the bombs start to drop you will have to keep destroying them, but sometimes they will get into places where you just can't match them and there is nothing you can do except waste a booster to destroy them.
Having said that, the bombs will give you the score you need if you can keep them under control and there are plenty of extra time candies dropping from the top and the middle so you shouldn't run out of time.
Try not to make matches too close to the outside edges of the board as this is where the bombs get stuck the most.
Once you have the score you need for one star you can relax and if a bomb is about to count down to zero and you can't destroy it just stop playing and let the time run out.

  1. wow is this annoying. i have had nothing but 15 sec play and no easy matches. under 1000 pys a bunch of times

    ReplyDelete
  2. Got it on my first try, but had to stop while I still had a full timer due to 1 count bomb. Stopped when I had 1 star, but the timed candies turned into wraps and that put me up to 3 stars.

    ReplyDelete
  3. I see they've been nasty again and put the target up to 100,000.

  4. Deleting cc because of timed levels. King sucks

    ReplyDelete
  5. Again, you can't do anything much in this level but keep on playing it. This is nastier than the 1st timed level in this episode because of the short time allowed of 15 seconds. I passed this on the 7th attempt but I have to buy a time extension when I reach 95,000 points.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Passed it first try too, the sprinkle from the magic dash gave me a good boost, but I had to stop playing due to bomb count down to one.
    I had 97k points so the sugar drop brought me to 110k.

    One star but happy to move on.

  7. Used a sprinkle booster to begin with (similar in concept to the comment above). Luckily, when the game began, it showed up near the top right corner of the upper left part of the board. So only concentrated most of the moves on the lower right half of the board. Never touched the sprinkle and when the time ran out, it sprayed the remaining time bombs and got the score over 135,000. One star is good enough.

  8. Got this on my first try, one star. Had my chocolate sprinkle from magic dash which I had to use first before any time bombs dropped. Made another two and used one on two bombs and stopped playing with three seconds left as one bomb was down to one count. Somehow ended up with enough points.

  9. Absolutely hate timed levels. No fun. Just stressful.

  10. 60,000 was hard enough, but now they raised it to 100,000. I challenge King to show how a person with arthritic fingers and weak eyesight can possibly get to the next move without clock running out. There should be a level playing field for handicapped players so they too can play the game they have come to love. We all play for enjoyment, most struggled to get 60K, so why punish us?

    ReplyDelete
  11. As usual, King makes this harder for IPhone users. This is hard enough to reach 60,000 points but 100,000 is close to impossible. If I wasn't addicted to this game, I'd quit.

    ReplyDelete
  12. 4 players posted they won this level on the first try!?!?
    Wow... I am so awed and shocked I can't even be jealous.
    Timed level make me want to cry and delete everytime.
    oh how i wish i could be a good timed player..
    I need a luck, no lots of luck! Thank you

    ReplyDelete
  13. After many many tries I finally was able to get a few matches with bombs and used 3 lollipops to get thru, a Colorbomb appeared and paid I think 50,000 and all of a sudden I had won. Weird. So glad to have it behind me.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Here's a testimony to how horrible I am at the timed level. I Couldn't beat it even with Magic Dash Helmet!
    Ugh... Ms. Cookie, please help?

    ReplyDelete
  15. I don't see how this one is possible without a sprinkle booster, which is what worked for me. Matched with a color that had two bombs.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Could someone remind me why I play this game!!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I'm still stuck. So pathetic I can't beat it even with the help of Magic Dash.. 3 times! That pretty much says this level maybe the end of me. I'll try some more but after I use up my saved boosters I wouldn't know what to do but to fold. Thank you, Ms. Cookie. Your site is the only way I could come this far:) Good luck to y'all!
    iPhone/magic dash/losing streak

    ReplyDelete
  18. Impossible especially with arthritis. I love a challenge but this is so frustrating.

    ReplyDelete
  19. This is really getting old. I have had a couple boards where it looks like King may give me a chance, but then a bomb falls with no matching colors in the area. I've used up almost all my boosters on previous levels, so it probably won't be long before I am out of them and deleting this pathetic game. It used to be fun - not so much anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I just can't. Please help

    ReplyDelete
  21. hate this one eonugh to finally complain

    ReplyDelete
  22. It took me about 10 tries to pass this level. Each time, I played levels 1 through 5 to get the magic helmet with a stripe, wrap and chocolate sprinkle. Try to match sprinkle with color bomb colors to boost points.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Came back after I deleted this game because I'm an addict. Finally beat it without Magic helmet nor starting boosters but I confess, I did buy an extra move. Used a hand switch to match n kill a bomb. Not pretty. But so happy to move on. Oh, and I think Ms. Cookie sent me a lucky board too, if so Thank you.
    iPhone/1 switch 1 extra move/1 star

    ReplyDelete
  24. Actually, if you really think about it, this is a very well designed challenge for us.
    We are all into this thing for over a year to get to 2266 so we know how to get this done but this board is requiring not only a lucky drop sequence but it's also needing our skills at decision making with the bombs limiting our possibilities, plus the timer pushes us to make the decisions quickly.
    So it should be fun.
    But it isn't fun after a while it's just stressful.
    Attempts at this level happen fast like 15 to 60 seconds so after 5 or 6 minutes your out of lives and still have 25 minutes of your lunchtime left.
    I've seen over 90000 points several times and likely had this beat if I stopped so am heading back to kill it with the help of all you folks tips so thanks and hang in there, quitting the game doesn't help you can't pass it that way :) cheers

    ReplyDelete
  25. I can't even get close ~ even boosters don't help!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Finally passed this level. I had to buy time once. Then had to use a lollipop to kill a bomb. One star but happy this level is over!

    ReplyDelete
  27. 15 seconds to get 100k. Ridiculous! Even using color bombs. They need to just go back and make levels when it was fun instead of constantly putting all these next to impossible timed levels for fillers.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Cannot get above 800000. Been on this for days, Need that lucky board please as like comment further above it is so frustrating when a bomb is about to explode yet you have no means of getting to it unless you smash with a lollipop. I've lost many!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Stop the madness, I want off.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I've played 15 times this morning getting maybe 4 or 5 moves each with less than 10k pts per play and always that one bomb with nothing to match it to. No use in wasting chocolate bombs because you are forced to use it before any bombs appear on the board. Hopeless level while waiting on that lucky board when CC decides it is time to win.

    ReplyDelete
  31. This level is impossible got better things to do so long candy crush

    ReplyDelete
  32. Omg, I took one breath and the game was over, gee whiz.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Ready to SCREAM ~ been on this stupid level for days. Not coming near to 100,000 points. Sigh The bombs simply can't be reached before exploding. Posting for LUCK or the good sense to quit.....

    ReplyDelete
  34. To begin. I HATE TIMED LEVELS. I do try several times with no boosters. Closest I got was 84000 or so. Decided to throw my small book at it. Used a sprinkle booster. Got close twice. Decided to go one better with sprinkle and wrap stripe combo. Figured of I got close the board may push me over. That worked for me. One star but I am happy with that. Hope this helps someone else. Love Cookies advise. Never start a level without checking here for advise. Appreciate all the positive input left here. It has helped me along the way and I also want to help others, so I post.

    ReplyDelete
  35. This level sucks. I don't think I've made more than ten moves before a bomb blew up. Broke 20k once.
    Stuck again until lucky board shows up. Pretty much the norm now days with these stupid ass boards.

    ReplyDelete
  36. The timed levels take the fun out of this game. It all depends on getting a lucky board. No fun in that at all.

    ReplyDelete
  37. This is a help forum. I've left tips here that have helped others and I have been helped by others who have left tips. Thank you all! Please let's not fill up this board with worthless complaint posts that we all have to wade through. King does not read this forum.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I have timed levels because I just can't react quickly enough. They spoil the game for me. This particular one uses 5 lives very quickly.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Finally after 3 or 4 days the lucky board showed up and I can move on.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Impossible to get 100000 points in 15 seconds.

    ReplyDelete
  41. 100000 in 15 is impossible, ridiculous!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. This level is an utter nightmare. Trying for days already.... Cannot pass it!! 😫😫😫

    ReplyDelete
  43. I'm dying in this level...

    ReplyDelete
  44. Well this level might be the end for me...out of trying at least 75 times I finally got 102000 but the bomb was at 0 so they didn't give it me....time for a break from this game, hopefully I can kick the habit

    ReplyDelete
  45. Horrible level. I've been stuck for days.

    ReplyDelete
  46. WTF King. Why up the target yo 100k. As if it wasn't hard enough. Boring.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Just another stupid, unimaginative, timed level. Zero skill required. Wish we were all as lucky as Cookie to only have to get 60,000 points.

    ReplyDelete
  48. This is my third day on this level. No where near 100,000. No more boosters. Need lots of luck. As days go on I play less and less.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Was getting nowhere then a lucky color bomb dropped during sugar crush and pushed the score past 100k. STUPID TIMED LEVEL!!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I played about 25 times. No boosters. Played upper left box. Once in lower, then the game reshuffled. A color bomb appeared, mixed that with green which was predominant on board. Total luck. That got me to 101,000 something and then I stopped and let count down.

    ReplyDelete
  51. After playing more times than I can count and reading all the post on here, I played the upper left corner as suggested by someone and passed it on my second try , only 1 Stat but I'll take it !!!! Unbelievable, hope this helps

    ReplyDelete
  52. OH LORD I really hate timed levels, and 15 sec, are you kidding me??? posting for luck I guess.

  53. Me we thought I would get past this level, eventually started with a sprinkle & stripe wrap combo.. passes with flying colours. Thank goodness it's over.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Good grief! Can't even get close. Bombs drop where you can't get them. Timed levels suck!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Been stuck on this for days, used lots of boosters and all my lollipops to no avail. Over it!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I've tried a few of the suggestions on here... to no avail.... sigh.... can't even get close....

    ReplyDelete
  57. Stupid level. Can't get close even with a sprinkle booster. Always get a bomb with no way to match it. Plus my reactions are not fast enough and my older, slightly arthritic hands won't move quickly. Maybe this will cure my candy crush saga addiction (though I'll just move over to the other CC games!)

    ReplyDelete
  58. Posting for luck as impossible level

    ReplyDelete
  59. Worst game yet. Can't even get a chance to get close. How many more days am I going to have to spend before I will get a lucky board and be able to play a game that is fun. This is far from fun!

    ReplyDelete
  60. This is just impossible. Tried sprinkle boosters as suggested and just wasted a bunch. Help get me the lucky board.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I think King does monitor this blog. Sporadically, but I think occasionally they take a peek. This level is really hard. I've tried sprinkle, stripe/wrap and still no go. Please lucky board.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I think this is it for me. No hope. 15 gone in an eye blink. Not even close.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Lucky board please

    ReplyDelete
  64. Too tough. Lucky board please.

    ReplyDelete
  65. What happened to treasure chests and free lives for watching adverts? I'm getting fe were and fewer boosters.

    ReplyDelete
  66. How is this even possible? Sometimes I get 3 moves and time runs out. I can't get past 30, 000. This sad. I try so hard not to complain but this just does not seem at all fair. Please lucky board.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Oh come on, I was 260 points away. Help.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I had 2 moves before time expired.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Android user need 100,000; not 60,000

    ReplyDelete
  70. I thought I was never going to get this. Twice I got over 60k and once as high as 94k but mostly the time ran out too quickly, or the bombs got me and my score would be less than 30k. Got a lucky board but I did use a hammer when I was over 60k and still had quite a bit of time left. Well worth it.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Been on this for a week now. No time to even use a booster before time runs out.

    ReplyDelete
  72. If you play on computer/facebook and you get time candies it will go over the 15 seconds. Many times I looked over at the time left and it was 25 seconds and up. Not sure if this is true for mobile but it does make a big difference. You want to get a good start right away so I used sprinkle and stripe/wrap, when it started the sprinkle was one away from the wrap and I used a hand switch to put them together... not for points but to open the board. Next thing I knew there were bombs and extra time candies everywhere. Tried to stay in the middle as Cookie suggested so the bombs are easy to reach. Used another sprinkle directly on a bomb twice.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Tried on PC first with no boosters. Plenty of 5+ candies but the bombs couldn't be cleared in time. Tried iPhone with sprinkle booster (from Helmet). On fourth try squeaked by with 104,000 -not sure how. Went so fast. sn

    ReplyDelete
  74. Posting for luck because I am really stuck on this one

    ReplyDelete
  75. Might need a hit of speed for this one.

    ReplyDelete
  76. i don't know if I have EVER played a level that made me more hopeless than this one. Once I got to nearly 98K points had a bunch of extra time candies and didn't even get a crush bonus at the end. I hate levels that say get x points in x time.....they don't mean it....why not say get 22 wraps in x time or whatever it takes to get through it....or more correctly....try 45 thousand times and we will magically just put you through. That's all these levels are about. playing less and less lately....i think it's spring and i will take up gardening. anything but playing more pointless King games. Loving Water Splash though....just in case there are any other potential defectors out there. I am over King. All of the games are really just pointless.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Don't know if anyone has posted this before, but here is what I discovered last night. I use an Android, when you have the lucky helmet, if you lose that level just close out candy crush with a swipe, don't hit try again or end, just restart the game and the helmet is still there. No need to go back to play easier levels to collect the helmet. Not sure if it works on iPhones but worth a shot. Now to beat this dreaded level!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Seriously, what is the point of this level? Everyone is waiting for a lucky board to appear. I reckon we deserve more than this garbage!

    ReplyDelete
  79. Posting for luck because I've been ont it for a while now. Need a lucky board for sure. Not enough time and too much bombs. Hard to make colour bombs the way the board is made and you do need them to get the points.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Yet another level buffed by these pieces of shit at king!!! No need to go from 60k to 100k with bombs in 15 seconds!!!!! FU KING U SCUM BAGS!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Well geez, been playing a long time n really liked the game until recently... I mean 2266 levels speaks for itself. This is a brutal timed level n seems to me like an either spend money or go home challenge, like so many have been lately. Guess I'll be moving on to something other than King. And I did spend money, but to stay ahead of my friends, not because they made levels that required it. What a sad, sad shame. Really liked the game.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Without boosters this level is impossible or impassable ,its over in seconds ,no chance to make any moves to create boosters of any kind ,ive been stuck for days going round and round like a hamster stuck on a wheel ,when will I ever get a decent board .

    ReplyDelete
  83. Seriously this is a waste of time, no skill involved and yet again for those of us catching up the rules have changed. My bombs start counting down from 8. Hardly room to move on the board I have no boosters. Just wasting my life on what used to be an enjoyable game. Yes it is supposed to be a game not leave you angry. Come on CC sort this one out.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I have someone on my list above me who aced it at 89000. Why the heck did they change it to 100000??? I just have to waste my time until candy crush lets me get to nearly the correct amount and hope I will buy. This will happen several times and then finally I will get it. I refuse to buy anymore as that is a set up.

    PS I hate the timed levels

    ReplyDelete
  85. iPad has 100000 points 15 seconds. Please correct.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Anyone else having trouble with CC stealing colour bomb sprinkles on timed levels. I don't tick the booster, but when I start the level after an hour or twos break, it starts with a colour bomb and takes one off my total. You can't reset with a timed level so can't stop it stealing a booster. I have lost dozens of sprinke boosters this way in this and other timed levels. Not fair play CC. If you can't beat us fairly then stop making new levels and cheating us.

    ReplyDelete
  87. what is Magic Dash and playing with a helmet?

    ReplyDelete
  88. You're not going to pass this one because of strategic thinking, you're going to win purely because of good luck. One of these rounds it'll happen, just like it happened with 100s of previous other non-fun, non-challenging, luck-based levels. If we're going to keep playing, why get all crazy-angry about the stupidity of the game? Might as well just relax and let it happen as it will. I'm seriously beginning to lose interest though. The good thing is the less I play the less I need that addictive "fix" that winning gives me.

    If you're looking for a different game, Words with Friends fun, requires you to use your brain, and you'll win because you employed strategy. It's a much more satisfying win. And a game lasts longer that 5 minutes.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Playing with a helmet is getting a reward of starting each game with a free candy ball, for as long as you win. Lose, and the helmet goes away. After a few wins with the helmet, you will also get a striped and wrapped candy whey you start. And eventually three extra moves. But again, you have to win the level on your first attempt. No, I don't know how to get the helmet, just every now and then I'm told I have it. What's great about it, is that I can start with a candy ball from my hoard, giving me two candy balls to start the game. Playing on my iPad or iPhone, I'll keep restarting the game until the two candy balls are next to each other. As you might imagine, it does major damage to the board on your first move, and greatly increases the odds of beating even the most difficult levels. Until you lose (which you eventually will) and the helmet goes away.

  90. WTF ?

    Why The F--- ? 100,000 ? ! ?

    ReplyDelete
  91. Another obnoxious, boring, intolerable and unwinnable timed level.

    ReplyDelete
  92. What is this about a "HELMET"? Where does it Start from? Also, can the board be reset if you are playing through Facebook on a PC? I need all the HELP I can get for these timed levels, not even getting close enough to buy some GOLD BARS for extra time. Last timed level ended up buying 43 GOLD BARS(15 + 28) having used initially 10 from free booster collection.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Hoping for lucky board soon. Not even getting half way when adding all 5 attempts together - at least it is not taking up too much time each day!!

    ReplyDelete
  94. Posting for luck. Going to use my last boosters and pray!

    ReplyDelete
  95. Impossible, never, ever spent so long on a level, really p----d off now! Wasted colour bombs, countdown bombs are killers, this is no fun any more, got to 80000 + a couple of times but refuse to BUY extra time, hate this level!

    ReplyDelete
  96. Scored over 50,000 for first time today!!! Not getting anywhere near 100,000, so not going to waste gold bars nor buy any from this far away. Looks like another time-off CC for a while...

    ReplyDelete
  97. OMG.....I thought the recent 30 second timed levels were bad enough. Now 15 seconds!

    ReplyDelete
  98. Honestly, I have no idea how I passed this one, but I did...whew!

    ReplyDelete
  99. I am on the verge of leaving that candy crush if you look they ask 60,000 but of my 2 ipad they ask a 100,000 bulsnit! I am quitting


    ReplyDelete
  100. King is gone crazy with this kind of shit levels, It has nothing to do with playing a game, just waiting for a lucky board. Think Its time to leave CC and go and play Bubbles IQ

    ReplyDelete
  101. What a stupid level this is 15 seconds to get 100,000 with bombs that fall so you can't get them. Been on this one for days and it is now boring beyond belief. This has to be the worst game for a while. What hell are King playing at? It seems like most games these days, just keep playing eventually that lucky board will turn up. But in the meantime be prepared to be extremely bored.

    ReplyDelete
  102. It can be done. I played in upper right and had a game where a color bomb dropped and I matched with a bomb color and voila, went over 100k. Just one color bomb. Not to say that 1 CB will always do it because I had other games where same situation but not even close so I don't know what triggered the big points??

    ReplyDelete
  103. OMG!!!Come on now. Not even close and stick for days.

    ReplyDelete
  104. No way this is possible anymore. People passed before king updated. I'm so over this game. Time to throw in the towel.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Posting for dumb luck.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Not enough matches in the bottom level where the extra time candies are. Not matches for the bombs. The board is too small for the kinds of matches needed to get to 100,00 points.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Ok, I give up! Time to delete this game for the summer. Not going to waste my time stuck on another ridiculous timed level like I did last summer. Was stuck on a timed level from May to September. Also ready to give up on Candy Crush Soda where I have been stuck on level 808 for even longer than on CC level 2266.

    ReplyDelete
  108. What a dumb a$$ level. Sick of CC.

    ReplyDelete
  109. This could be it for me...

    ReplyDelete
  110. Hardest timed level so far. Read comments and tried using everyone's strategies but still not coming close on mobile or pc. posting for a lucky board.

    ReplyDelete
  111. This level made me quit. Played on 3 different platforms (phone, kindle and computer) for weeks and I think I got above 50k once - and that's only HALF of what you need. Finally I decided to buy my way through it and bought a bunch of lollipops to bop the bombs that get in places that are impossible to pop them but that only got me to shoot 80k. I understand they want to make some levels challenging, but if I can't beat a level after 3 weeks, after using hundreds of boosters and even spending money on it why should I bother? Kind of upset because I was so close to the end and had passed 1500 levels in a couple months. But enough is enough. Good job king. You made this paying player quit.

    ReplyDelete
  112. This is the level that has beaten me. I just can't pass it. been here for days and days. Posted for luck days ago with no result. Good luck fellow crushers hope you manage to pass this.

    ReplyDelete
  113. This level is a cruel impossible joke on those of us who have played for so long. The only way to win is with a lucky board. I've played all week, used boosters and even bought extra time to no avail. I play on my iPhone most of the time as I have a wireless keyboard at home which makes timed levels virtually impossible.

    ReplyDelete
  114. This game has broken my fortitude. I'm done with cc. Been playing this for days and never come near 100,000. The falling time bombs are overwhelming. I found a game I like much more. And, this help blogspot is annoying, too. Good bye and good riddance.

    ReplyDelete
  115. I have a score of over 110.00 on 2 occacions yet did not advance. This is beyond stupid.

    ReplyDelete
  116. So annoying! Come on King!

    ReplyDelete
  117. I don't see getting thru this level as I have no boosters and refuse to keep buying level after level. So 100,000 points in 15 sec is not happening! Very disappointing!

    ReplyDelete
  118. Horrible level but at least all five lives get used up very quickly so you can get on with life!
