Candy Crush Saga Level 2642 Tips and video

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 2642 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
You have 18 moves to collect 18 red candies and 15 each of yellow candies and licorice.
You will get everything you need from the lucky candies which drop from the dispensers each side of the board.
Make moves in the sides columns under the portals to get the licorice and lucky candies dropping onto the main playing area.
Try to work as close to the bottom of the board as you can to create cascades, although this doesn't always work as the changing candies will stop the cascades. 
You will need a fair amount of luck to pass this level as the chocolate will often block the top of the board and prevent candies from dropping.
Look carefully at the board before every move and try to make moves that will give you the most lucky candies changing and keep the chocolate under control.

Another level where you have to wait for that 'lucky' board. Very frustrating but with patience your 'lucky' board will arrive! Don't waste any time using boosters, they will invariably be licorice and it is the red and yellow candies which are more difficult to obtain........................

I passed this on the 5th attempt July 12 before Cookie's tip becomes available to me but I did basically what Cookie has suggested which is to make moves in the sides columns under the portals (columns 4 & 6) to get the licorice and lucky candies dropping from the dispensers (columns 2 & 8) onto the main playing area. I started with a CB combo from Space Dash to clear the licorice first. You have to get rid of all the licorice first or at least the required 15 before the lucky (check) candies turn into red or yellow candies which you need for the order. (If you have not completed the licorice order yet, some of the lucky candies will turn into licorice.) Prioritize matching 3 (or more) lucky candies of the same color. If they turn into 3 reds or 3 yellows, you're 3 less of that order. Be wary of chocolate blocking the top of the board preventing candies from dropping.

True... no boosters to waste on this one!

First time commenting. I am having problems with the fact that the game re shuffles even though there are moves and when matching say 3 yellows it does not show on the score and is not reduced. Any ideas please ?

I'm having the same problem as the player above. I've been playing for days, the game will re-shuffle even though there are matches to make, and when I convert 'lucky' candies, they turn to other colours instead of the red and yellow, and, ....like above, when I do match three yellow or red, they don't show up on the score.

Have you tried playing on a different devise/version. Windows App/King.com/Facebook/mobile (probably not out on mobile yet?)? Sometimes they're different and there can be a glitch in one version, but not in the others.

Thanks for your post above. Good to know I am not the only one who is having "problems". I feel CC are holding us all back with this game and whilst some are passing it is possibly a restricted few. I keep looking at the games posted where people have passed this and it seems to heavily rely on bombs at the right time and at least two other good moves to change the colours to red or yellow. After at least 200 games I have not had an opportunity yet

So, I'm sure the makers of this game watch this site, I posted my complaining post above for this game last night and lo and behold, I passed it this morning. Thank you candy crush makers, ....I'm glad you're taking notice. Joh

i am also having the problem of red/yellow not counting. when all 3 mystery candies turn into same color, they match and disappear but counter does not change. normal red/yellow match appears ok. PH

Anonymous said...

Add me to the list of passing a tough level right after posting here. But I don't think that it is because CC is watching this forum, when we are posting here, I think that we are approaching to the point that matches CC's preset threshold to let us pass. If we are not posting, then it is considered as not frustrated enough? PH

this level is impossible and still left with at least a dozen when no more moves

Anonymous said...

Oh, my! What a frustrating level. After playing many times, I haven't come any closer than 12 more needed. I am waiting for that luck board. How many games until I meet that threshold where the game feels sorry for me??

Frustrating but not impossible. I tried with boosters then helmet then boosters and helmet but most luck. Just played normally and got it on 3rd attempt at the cost of 1 hammer.

Very frustrating. Used helmet, several boosters, no luck.

This level is very difficult. I am having the same problem with the shuffling. I play it on 2 different devices. Still no hope

Unknown said...

Advice on this level: Play and pass consecutive levels (start with Level 1) and get all the bonus candies until you have 2 sprinkles. Keep starting and closing this level without losing lives until you happen to see a board where 2 sprinkles are next to each other. Using 2 sprinkles will get you most of the licorice you need in one go and make getting reds and yellows come up instead. Keep chocolates in check as well.

Carol the elder said...

I have the top helmet and reset until the CBs were together. That takes care of the licorice. I didn't win the first time, but the second time gave me more reds and yellows. I still needed a hammer and a swap to,get them lined up. Even with the helmet, I still had to spin for extra moves. I don't know how you could do this without the space helmet! Good luck everyone.

Victoria said...

This level is impossible to complete. When 3 reds or yellows are matched, they disappear from the board but are not deducted from the total needed. I have also made a couple of matches to make a stripe; the stripe does not appear. This is so frustrating.

Victoria said...

I have reported to the Help Center. If you are having the same problem, please do the same.

Victoria said...

I was finslly able to pass this level after posting snd many more failed attempts. Started with a color bomb combo, and got 2 more color bombs during the game. Used a hand switch to get them side by side. AND the reply to my trouble ticket was to watch a video. SMH.

Unbelievable that KING only makes levels that frustrates players that have come this far. The last episodes are a struggle for lot if not all the players. What's going on in the minds of the developers of these levels. Put your computer programs on middle in stead of hardd KING and let us enjoy this game again!!!!

Anonymous said...

I have had So much PATIENCE with King, but now I am losing it. Why for heavens sake are we constantly getting levels which are almost impossible to finish by using skills. I thought that that was te purpose of this game!! If they want us to continue the game then get ride of the LUCKY-BOARD-LEVELS KING!!!

Dianne said...

This is the longest time I have spent trying to pass a level. I just can't get it. Used my boosters up and I'm almost done playing. I don't want to, but am so tired of trying. Maybe I'm not understanding what to do.

Anonymous said...

Ugh. Collect 48 items in 18 moves?

Mharookh Dubash said...

After 300 games still no lucky. Impossible to clear

Anonymous said...

Same issue - doesn't count some matched yellows and reds in the total - happens intermittently even after the liquorice total has been reached. Have tried on desktop and phone. I even had 2 colour bombs next to each other and other games where the board seemed like a lucky one but the glitch persisted. Will report to Help Centre.

Anonymous said...

To follow on from my comment above - I passed the level literally on the next game after posting this. Very weird.

Unknown said...

Very hard level. Nearly impossible to pass with the given possibilities. Please change or lots of die hard players will quit the game.

Pati Beck said...

by far the most frustrating level for me, constant reshuffling when not needed, no credit for making ree/yellow matches, same issues on Android and Fire tablet, ugh

You cannot make moves in the side columns, they are those annoying single-square checkerboards! What on earth are you and Cookie on about?

They are referring to the side columns in the central playing area. these are the ones into which the side playing areas fall into, as you noted.

Anonymous said...

Not coming close but seems harder to get the red than the yellow.

Kai Q said...

Finally passed on Android without using any aid (no boosters, shapeship, etc). Stuck for a few day. Just play and play and play until passed. First got the licorice, then yellow, finally red. 3 stars.

Never in the history of rubbish Candy Crush levels has there been one quite this bad. I know it will let me pass eventually, but I'm thinking I may hang myself first. Sheesh...

And to cap it all, I passed it on the last move, switching 3 reds with 1 left to get and it didn't give me the win. I've had it with this game!!

Waiting for a lucky board...

Anonymous said...

You can't be serious CC! This level is the most ridiculous out of all 2642. I've been playing for days, and not getting better than 13 red and some yellow left. So collecting 20 hammers is the only solution to beat this damn level? seriously?

Anonymous said...

Candy crush has become nothing more then a game luck. My interest in the game is quickly fading. I'm sick of all the "so called hard levels" which are really nothing more then wasting lives waiting for a lucky board. I'the disgust I'm sure I'm not alone in the disgust I feel for how the game boards are being designed lately. No skill, just luck. Garbage!

EXACTLY! Candy Crush,, the game of LUCK!

Anonymous said...

I quit! FUCK Candy Crush and their stupid shit game. Enough wasted time on a fucked up game that is designed just to drive up sales by forcing players to purchase boosts in a hopeless attempt to pass levels which are rigged to lose until the game decides to give a lucky board. Fuck you King! Kiss my ass!

I have played this level for hours and can'take even get close to winning. I have come this far, but almost feel like giving up. Posting for lucky board

Anonymous said...

I'd like to hear from the designers of candy crush on some of these threads as to why they insist on making levels which require luck to pass. The game has become nothing more than an exercise of patience while wasting countless lives hoping to get a lucky board. What a joke the game has become. I would also like to know how some players claim to be playing for hours..... How can you play for hours when you spend your lives on one level then you must wait for the lives to replenish. Is there some secret way of getting free lives that some of us don't know about????? Anyway, I'm starting to think candy crush is a lost cause. The board designs now seem to favor luck over skill and strategy. I wish they would have just ended the game at level 2000. Time to find a different game.

seriously need some luck. It is impossible

Mangesh said...

Uninstalling the game on level 2642..... as it is going to be only luck based levels and not skills... by King cc

Randall Branham said...

Impossible game...really getting disgusted

Randall Branham said...

I absolutely hate hate this level

Victoria said...

To help build up the number of lives available: on the screen with the Play! Button, you will see player ranking and a send lives button. Depress the send lives button; you will get a teturn life when the players use their lives. Do this frequently, and your lives will gradually build up. Also, ask for lives when you run out. Hope this helps!

Vicky said...

I've also been stuck on this level for days and days. I'm sick of it. Ready to just get past it.

Anonymous said...

Yes another stupid 'waiting for lucky board' level.
Not even the slightest pinch of strategy ....

Hey, KingGames ... better to stop adding new levels and decide 'game over' for Candycrush than creating these kind of levels to disgust players ...
