What is it?
A rare Aurora Borealis has appeared in the night sky above the Candy Kingdom!
Three mountains stand between players and the prize as phenomenal as the Northern Lights themselves. Each mountain has it's own leaderboard and players will get the chance to climb each one by collecting stars. Those who reach the top of the last leaderboard will harness the power of the Candy Cosmos and win the chance to customize a Candy Crush Saga character!
What can I win?
Play the game you love and you could be the ultimate winner of a prize that money cannot buy!
How do I play?
No extra skills or gameplay to learn, the event leaderboard will count the stars you collect as you play your way up the game map.
The leaderboard will let you track your progress and that of other players. Keep checking your position and crush those Candies to stay high on the list. Only new stars or stars missed from previous levels will count!
At the end of each challenge, players in the top 10 positions will make it to the following round and climb the next mountain.
To move to the next stage, it’s essential that you return to the game at the end of the first round to discover if you’re in the top 10 or not!
In the Grand Final round, only the top player will receive the ultimate reward and customize the Candy Crush Saga character. This unique character will then feature in a forthcoming Candy event, visible to everyone who plays!
After each stage ends, the leaderboards update and the winners move forward. Each players' total stars will be reset to zero and you’ll begin to collect again. Stars collected from each leaderboard will not carry over to the next event leaderboard.
How can I collect stars for the Cosmic Climb?
- Focus on New levels! In these levels, you can earn a maximum of 3 Stars for the event!
- Sugar Stars will not count. Thus, if you already have collected 3 stars, focus on other levels in which you may have 1 or 2 stars.
Who can play?
The Cosmic Climb will appear in your game in the next few days. Keep a lookout for pop-ups in-game and tap the Event button visible on the map screen.
When can I take part?
As the event is playable in stages, we’ll keep the leaderboards updated as the challenges take place. Track your place in the scores, keep matching those Candies and collecting the stars to make sure you come out on top!

Important things to know:
Each leaderboard group needs 30 players before they can take part. To be guaranteed to be in a group, start the event early. Once the event has begun, enter the game as early as you can to have the best chances of being in a group.
Connection to the internet is essential to play Cosmic Climb. If you play offline or in Airplane Mode, your progress will not be tracked and your score will not be validated.
