After half a weekend spent on conquering Candy Crush Saga levels, I have finally arrived at level 36. Unfortunately, there seems to be a "barrier" of sorts to start playing this level, with two options:

  1. Ask your Facebook friends for help
  2. Buy a ticket for $0.99

While option #2 is extremely cheap, I'm curious what option #1 entails. I am personally extremely annoyed when I get enormous amounts of requests from Facebook applications and I don't want to annoy my friends this way. While I know selecting option #1 sends a request to my Facebook friends, what happens after that?

If you ask your Facebook friends, they'll be prompted to play the game. If they refuse or have blocked the app, you won't get the ticket. If they play, (I believe) they can give you one ticket towards each ticket checkpoint without any impact to their game.

In addition to spamming your friends and spending real money, you can also earn free tickets by replaying levels from the previous set in so-called "Mystery Quests".

Note that if your game is linked to your Facebook account, this option is unavailable! You can enable it by temporarily taking your device offline or removing your Facebook account in the options.

After passing a quest, you must wait 24 hours before you can try the next. I've heard multiple people mention that you can skip the wait by modifying your device's clock. There's a particularly complete description of how to do this in a comment here.

Once you've cleared the three bonus levels, you'll be allowed to continue.

Thanks! Didn't know about the bonus levels. They probably purposefully hid that option since it has the least potential to get revenue ;) –  rikitikitik May 20 '13 at 2:43

@rikitikitik, yeah, I kind of stumbled upon it by accident. I just mashed all the buttons. I was not about to spam my FB friends or give them a dollar... :P –  agent86 May 20 '13 at 2:44

@rikitikitik Yeah, it's ridiculous. That option is hidden until you take the device offline or unlink your Facebook account. –  lunboks May 24 '13 at 9:57

Just to add: Android version gives the option for quests online and offline. –  Halfwarr May 25 '13 at 19:09

If you advance the date on your iPad by one day at the end of each level, you can play the second and third quests straight away –  user49228 May 28 '13 at 1:34

According to:

http://www.chaptercheats.com/qna/ipad/112075/Candy-Crush-Saga-Answers.htm?qid=31432

You will need three friends to help you actually get the ticket to advance to level 36.

In other words, onc eyou click the Ask your Facebook friends for help, it would likely either send a message to a number of friends of your choosing or post it on your wall for your friends to click on it.

Yup, I know that a message/request will be sent to your friends as I mentioned in the question, but what happens after that? What are your friends supposed to do? –  rikitikitik May 20 '13 at 2:08

You only need 3 friends to respond and actually after selecting option #1, you have select list where you can pick to which friends the request will be sent. So it isn't like you're going to spam all your friends with the request.

To help you your friends have to actually open the game. Request for help pop-up before actual gameplay.
