[Candy Crush Saga] Pink ribbon and +3 Extra Moves in Candy Crush Saga

What is the pink ribbon and +3 Extra Moves in Candy Crush?

This is not to be confused with the +5 Moves booster which you need to purchase and which you can choose to purchase at any time during a game. This post is talking about the +3 Extra Moves Boosters in Candy Crush Saga which you can send to your friends for free.

An explanation to +3 Extra Moves boosters, pink bow or pink ribbon in Candy Crush Saga

An extra move booster gives you additional 3 moves to the game. Each booster can only be used for one game. A disadvantage of this booster is that you have to choose whether to use it before the game, rather than during the game when you know that you just need a few more moves and you could clear the level. Hence the usefulness of this extra moves booster is kinda limited. Sometimes when you chose to use it, the game board is so unfavourable that you will never clear that level even if it is a 10 extra moves booster!

That said, an Extra Moves booster does not cost you money as it is sent to you from your friends, like extra lives.

When you receive an Extra Moves booster from your friend, a pink ribbon bow will show up on the level to show you that you have available Extra Moves booster to use.

How to send or receive +3 Extra Moves boosters from your friends


There is no way for you to ask for extra moves from your friends. However, when you are stuck for a couple of days on a particular level, the game will prompt YOUR friends to send you extra moves. 

If you notice when you start Candy Crush, there will be a window asking you whether you wish to send Extra Moves booster to your friends - for eg. so and so is stuck on Level 132 for 15 days. Check it with a tick and an Extra Moves booster will be sent to your friend.

So do not expect to receive Extra Moves for every level from your friends, especially if you are "not stuck for long enough", so to speak.

How to use the extra moves boosters from your friends


Extra moves given by your friends are specifically meant for that level only. 
If you received extra moves from your friends for a level, you would see a pink ribbon before you start the game as one of the options of boosters for you to choose. 
You may select it and your next game for the same level will have 3 extra moves. 
Take note : you must select it before you start the game, you cannot select it in mid-game. The Extra Moves given to you for a particular level can only be used for that same level.

  1. Thank you for the info but for some reason my friend doesn't receive any extra moves like I do and I can't figure out how to change her settings so that she can. I play on my iPad and she has galaxy 2...7 inch and she really needs the help. I tried to change settings on FB but it didn't work. Can you suggest something?

    1. Hi Susan, I have updated this post to include more information and also to address your friend's problem regarding the lack of extra moves boosters. There is no setting to change regarding extra moves boosters. You might be prompted to send her extra moves (if she is your facebook friend) if she is stuck for a couple of days on the same level.

  2. Thank you very much for this information on how to use the +3 moves! No wonder I couldn't figure out how to use it during my game...lol. I have to use it before I start, which does suck. Not sure why the developers made it that way. But thank you for clearing that up.

    1. The pink ribbon will only show up on the particular level that your friends sent you pink ribbons for. You cannot use it for other levels.

    1. that's because the extra moves booster that your friends sent to you is limited for use at that particular level for which it was sent

    1. that's because the extra moves booster that your friends sent to you is limited for use at that particular level for which it was sent. in this case, you have to wait for friends to send you a booster for level 421.

  6. Im on a level-91 and the pink ribbon is showing up on it and I have a ton of the extra moves given by friends; however it is NOT letting me use them on that level! I understand how to use them, but it does not show up when I select to play that level as shown in the picture above you provided when you can select boosters before you play...what am I doing wrong???

  7. I was use to hitting the heart in the upper right corner to send friends extra moves, but for quite awhile now it only gives me the same four people and 4 spots where it says add friends. The add friends is only for friends who aren't playing Candy Crush. I use to also be able to hit the heart over and over and it would bring up more friends I hadn't sent the moves to yet. How do I fix this please? thanks -Suzanne
