Candy Crush is a popular multi-platform game. It is an addictive game having more than 9000 levels. It provides a good time pass. You can also link your game with your Facebook account to compete with your friends. The game-play is divided into episodes, each episode has 15 levels. You have to clear all of these 15 levels to go to the next episode. When you have completed an episode, you will need help from your friends to go to the next episode to skip the 72 hours wait.
Help from 3 Facebook friends is required to go to the next episode. Besides getting help from friends, you can alternatively wait for 72 hours to go to the next episode. But luckily there is a trick to skip this “72 hours wait”. That too without getting help from Facebook friends.
Skip 72 Hours Wait to Unlock Next Episode in Candy Crush Saga
This tutorial shows you a method to unlock the new episode using the “Play Quests” option. This option appears only when you are offline.
Step 1: Play Game and Exhaust All Lives
Click on the “Play Quests” button that appears after playing the very last level of the previous episode.
But, if you are online, you will see only two options to unlock the next episode:
1 – Ask friends.
2 – Unlock now
Now disconnect your internet connection, turn on Airplane or Flight Mode, and restart the Candy Crush app. Start the Candy Crush App again and click on the next level. Now you will see three options, the third option will be Play Quests. Click on Play Quests to continue.
Step 2: Play Quest and Advance Date by One Day
Play the first Quest and achieve the target. These quests are not very tough, you can easily complete them and skip the 72 hours wait for the next episode.
After you have completed the Quest you will see a timer of 24 hours for the next Quest. It means you can play the next quest after 24 hours.
So, what’s the use of playing quests if it is still going to take 72 hours to complete three quests? This is where we are going to use the Time Travel Hack. Advance your device’s date by 1 day. Don’t worry we will revert it back to normal later.
The above Screenshots show you the date status of your device before changing the date and after changing the date respectively.
Step 3: Play the Second Quest to Skip 72 Hours Wait
After increasing your device’s date by one day, go back to the game, you will have the option to play the next quest. Now, play the second Quest. By now you have reduced 24 hours from your 72 hours wait.
After you complete the second quest, you will see the same timer for the third quest. Advance your device’s date by one more day.
Step 4: Play 3rd Quest and Skip 72 Hours Wait
Now you have only one quest left. Play the third and last quest to unlock the next episode.
After you have completed the third quest, you will be taken to the next episode and prompted to play the next level. So, now you have successfully skipped the 72 hours wait to play the next level.
Step 5: Get Full Lives and Reset Date Back to Normal
Do not play the next level yet. Take a look at your lives left. If you don’t have full lives, advance your device’s date by one day again.
This will give you a full set of lives. If you already have full lives, tap on any level to play, without playing that level close the play level dialog box, and then reset your device’s date back to normal. After resetting the date, you will still have full 5 lives.
Now you can continue to play the next episode.
NOTE: DO NOT RESET YOUR DATE BACK TO NORMAL UNTIL YOU HAVE FULL LIVES, OTHERWISE YOU HAVE TO WAIT FOR 3 DAYS TO GET NEXT LIFE
