Candy Crush Saga Level 3976 Tips and video

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 3976 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Level 3976 is a score level, at the moment you have to score 500,000 points to complete the level.
You don't have to worry about the bombs counting down but you do need to clear them to get the score needed.
The only way to get the points is to clear the bombs using colourbombs. You need at least 3 colourbombs but often that isn't enough depending on how many bombs you can clear with each one. I found that four colourbombs is the minimum needed to score the points needed and even then you need to clear as many bombs as possible with each one.

To begin with you will have to clear some of the waffles out of the way to give you more room to make the colourbombs.
If the board shuffles and you get bombs in the top part of the board you won't get so many points for matching them so you will need to get more bombs to drop by making a move on the conveyor so there is room for them to drop.

If the level you play is different from the one here it is because the developers have changed it since I played and I have no control over this. Please let me know in the comments and I will try to change it.

Sorry Cookie but if your best advice involves forming at least 4 color bombs and matching with stripes, wraps, or other bombs, we are all doomed. I have been playing this level pretty much all day and if I use a color bomb booster I am akways forced to waste it and that is about the only cb I have seen. Maybe once I scored 200,000 but even if all the timers are destroyed that is it. Was hoping for useful comments from other players.

Carol the elder said...

I started with just one CB and got it in the second try. Three more CBs showed up during play. There were a couple matches on the conveyor which also helped. So it's doable, don't give up!

bc ....Cookie’s FREE advice was spot on. She didn’t say to combine the CBs with other special candies, she said you need 4 to hit the countdown bombs. We all know by now that scores increase when you hit countdown bombs with CBs. The challenge to this episode is to make (or start with) CBs. Wait to use them on the countdown bombs with the most colors. Then go on to the next game and continue to complain about your free entertainment.

Lol, agree..

Kim Arney said...

This level is ridiculous! 4 colors to start and a color bomb is only going to destroy 2 of 3 colors or 3 of 1 color(blue) on the conveyor belt, with that done, new bombs don’t drop down for me for at least 2 or more moves, I still have all the licorice and waffles in the top half of my board and even with a shuffle due to no possible switches moving the remaining 6 time bombs to the top half of my board, swiping these for an extra 7-10,000 points, with only 27 moves the highest I’ve gotten in the first 15 moves is 275,000, but ALL THE LICORICE IS STILL BLOCKING THE BOTTOM HALF!!! This level is so stupid and now King has changed their in app “help center” layout so I can’t even search that community forum to see if anyone has posted anything! I used to be able to enter “King Care” then simply enter “3976” or whatever level I was looking into to see if anyone else was having trouble or I needed to suck it up and keep trying! Not anymore. Their new layout is super confusing and I can’t locate where to check for any feedback from other players....very very frustrating!!! My biggest question WHY DO THE TIME BOMBS START AT 99??? Was the intention originally to give players over 100 moves? This would make more sense as it seems that’s how many some would need to pass this ridiculousness!

Had full build a bot, so I had 2 CBs, used them separately, then more just kept falling on their own, the elusive lucky board

Anonymous said...

please let me have my lucky board

Anonymous said...

Super lucky!!! Started with 3 colorbombs. Took out the most countbombs with the first.....waited till filled up, checked to see if I could play on the conveyor.... next color comb....wait till full..repeat and first try....phew!!!!! After all the nightmareish levels I am counting my blessings.

Will try to follow advice of full bot and doing CB individually.

Anonymous said...

stupid level

HFP said...

Tried everything and nowhere near points needed. Kind of happy because I’m not interested in playing as much. This level is almost like King saying, “stay put until I tell you to move”. No strategy or boosters help.

I want a board like you and Cookie got. CB doesn’t fall for me. ??? Am I not understanding how to get more bombs? Need help on that. Thank you!

Anonymous said...

But of course Cookie’s advice is Right On! Why didn’t I come here before I wasted all the time? I beat it first time after I read the tip. Before that, I was keep mixing 2 CBs to start instead of mixing a cb with a color of most bombs. Thank you, Cookie!

I am having no go even with 5 CB which I got once, just under 500000! Getting more than boring!

I took a vacation from CC and it helped. Bonus, since I am so far behind my games are easy. I have licorice, not multi-layer waffles. It took 4 moves using CBs on different colors, played around made a couple more CBs got 3 stars. Loved not worrying about the countdown bombs.

Anonymous said...

I've started with 3 CB several times and am using them individually on a bomb colour. I haven't managed to get anywhere near the required score.

Still Here said...

Five days I’ve spent on this level. The highest point threshold I’ve reached is only a little under 300,000. This level relies too much on a lucky board and it’s unfortunate the the CC creators have run out of imagination to create one that uses strats.

again posting for luck 3976 is the pits

Emsa8 said...

Cookie is right. You need 3 CBs at least (had only 490K with 3CBs, but with the explosions after the last move had over 500K). Had fortunately 30 min free CB plus free wrap/stripe (playing the bean stuff and stopped after winning this) and luckily won this game then after some few attempts (while yesterday without boosters never had a chance). Just wait for the lucky board, as CBs are coming/possible from time to time...

Ian Snitch said...

Another stupidly impossible level!!!! Merry Xmas!!! Grrrrr

Still Here said...

Oof. Got up to 490,000 but ran out of moves and I’d already spun the lucky wheel on a previous round. Sooo close

Veronica said...

Well I think I have shown than this is impossible without the famous lucky board. I got 15 extra moves with the extra spin and still didn't get enough points. I got more on another try. Also i am not sure if you get a colour bomb is it best to try and change it with a strip or wrap or single colour.

Anna Marie DeLeo said...

Posting for luck. The highest I got was 490

A2 said...

Posting for luck. Again.

Unknown said...

Must have been very lucky. The bombs have a 99 count on them. I got the score quickly and had plenty of moves left. Ended with 918,220 on first try.

There is no fun in this level it is just stressful and unpleasant not even worthwhile posting for luck

Twice now have made 4 colour bombs and still got nowhere near! Sort it out king or you will lose a lot of loyal players!!!!

I cannot get anywhere near. The number of comments above show just how dreadful this level is. I have no idea hat to do. The colour bombs just don’t help. Luck please

Ignore the bottom and concentrate on forming colourbombs. When you have made one swap it with the colour that appears most frequently on the bombs. I think you need to do this 3 times. I did it first time using this method. Cath G.

Anna said...

It was to keep the bombs from being an issue. Would you rather they started at 9?

Anna said...

Nice to know I’m not alone. Been stuck for a bit. Made quite a few CBs and have been starting w/ 1/2 a “stocking dash” (too impatient to get all 6 so stop at 3 for the extra moves). Rarely score over 250k. Last time score got up over 400k and was sure I was gonna make it... not. Failed at 450k. Grrr.

Anna said...

Oops. Meant failed at 420k... just failed at 438k. Ready to lose it now...

Anna said...

Finally got the lucky board. Did nothing different. Wasn’t even using boosters. All of a sudden, was able to make CB after CB. Ended up w/938k.

I've noticed that in score levels, you may not match color bombs with stripes or wraps. In order to score more quickly combine color bombs with simple candies, and at the same time you will create other color bombs easily. Good luck!

Anonymous said...

Very Very difficult to make the color bombs needed!! Another BS level!!

Anonymous said...

Seems bombs don’t count up to score even when u are hitting them.... waiting it out

Raimo said...

I have no possibility to start with 2 CB. And it is very difficult to make CB by yourself. Maybe King will help me nyt giving a lucky board.

Raimo said...

I just passed the level. The secret is: forget stripes and craps, concentrate by making CB and use it to the color which has most of the bombs. Don't use to stripe or crap.

Erick S said...

This level is straightforward, especially if you remember how points score with countdown bombs... if you happen to have a booster bot/lucky letters/space dash/whatever other name king uses, fill it up and/or boost up with a color bomb at the start (if you have any), then match a color bomb with a standard candy that has the highest number of countdown bombs, attempt to make another color bomb, or save it until the conveyor is full of countdown bombs again, then match the color bomb with another standard candy (with the same color as the most countdown bombs, or the maximum available to you) once the conveyor is full, and repeat until you've matched 4ish color bombs, and you should have the required score, with moves to spare. Good luck, fellow crushers!

Erick S said...

This is one of the few recent levels that is actually able to be accomplished without an extreme amount of boosters. I was happy to see it, hoping the next few levels are less than "hard" difficulty. Best of luck to all!
