    Ok I'll be the first to respond.  I was at my daughter's house one day and she was playing the game.  I asked her what she was doing and she told me that she was playing this cute game.  Then she showed me her phone and how it works. I can thank her for this lovely addiction!  So who else wants to tell us how they learned about the game?

    That is so funny @Elsa that you should say it was your daughter, because it was my youngest daughter who introduced me to the game too more than 6 years ago!  She stopped in the lower 100s but here I am today still crushing away. I remember being on a plane once and saw this woman next to me swiping away. She was farther than me and she would actually change the time on her phone to keep getting extra lives!😆 I was never quite so fanatical about it to do that but was tempted a time or two. 
    Hey fellow crushers @marscrushinit @MiaChristine @Ashraf @flew66 @Joseph45 @Deryck @Lindsey_Ash @Joe000 @knitsafghans @José_Savelkoul @adylanfan inquiring minds would like to know when and how you started playing Candy Crush. After all we are celebrating 5000 levels!😊🍾💕

    You just reminded me of 2 things that happened at my job.  The first was a fun thing.  We have a lobby where our clients had appointments with us counselors and they would sit in the lobby waiting for us.  I was walking by and I saw the back of this one client and she was playing Candy Crush Saga.  Of course, I had to stop and say "Oh wow, you play this game too?".  Then we got into this whole conversation about the game.  The second time I got into trouble - I was taking a 2 minute break trying to clear a level on my phone.  My manager walked by and said to me "Elsa, stop playing Candy Crush and get to work".  That was embarrassing.  But when she walked away I took the phone out because i had to finish playing that level!

    I actually found it from some friends. At the time, I was playing a similar game. Then my friends were saying stuff like, "Hey, check out this new game! Be careful though. It's 4 times as addicting!" I told myself that I had more willpower than my friends. They quit years ago, and I'm.....still......here😁

    Wow! CC is at 5000th level! How time flies! I started playing CC when it was first introduced. If I remember correctly, I probably stumbled across it on FB. I always like to play puzzle games such as Bejewled, etc. CC immediately caught my attention. I used to record my game play and posted to my YouTube channel. However, I was too busy with other stuff and I stopped doing that around CC level 2,000, CCJ and CCS around 500-600s. I have been in hiatus for quite a long period until recently got the bug again and started playing CCF. May be I will go back and play other CC games some days. Cheers!

    I do not remember clearly when I knew the first time😂.. Possibly I saw a add 📺 .. And the possibility of knowing the game when I was looking for games 😁📲.. But probably when I saw it in the phone of one of the Attendees of my art workshop who I taught them drawing and coloring🎨... And other possibility In the phone of one of the bus passengers🚦🚃🚗🚕.. I often see bus passengers playing that game on the road these days

    I started playing when it was first released from a post on facebook many years ago. I am now on level 5024. My favorite game of all time.

    My two sisters and my niece were all excited about the game and kept telling me about candy crush. I tried it and have never stopped. Love the game!  Enjoy the community.  =)

    I was playing Candy Crush online even before the version that is on facebook!
    See this link :awesome:  Candy Crush on Royal games

    I remember the hype when it was going to be released on facebook (in April 2012) and was playing as soon as it was available there.

    I was a regular player for a few years, but King released too many new games that started to take up more of my time.  Whenever I go back and play Candy Crush Saga I realise how much I miss it.





    Too many games, not enough time!

    I found out about Candy Crush Saga 6 years ago through my friend. A really addictive game so I've had some love/hate relationship with it. Since I've joined our lovely Community I have nothing but love for this game because there is so much going on and so many people willing to help and share their love for it. I will use this opportunity to thank everyone for doing so 💜 Keep crushing 🍭

    P.S. Do you have those weird looks on you when you start talking passionately about the game? 🙈

    i got to know about CCS in 2012 from my elder sister and we would take turns playing
    5 years later when i i was given my own smart phone it was the first game i downloaded!!
    the beauty about candy crush is that you can continue playing even when you change device!, s
    sometimes it becomes boring having to start again from level 1 of your favorite game when you change device!😉

    I actually played it 1 and a half - 2 years ago ago but didn't have a king account so when I switched phones I lost everything (then I probably found out about the game via an ad or the app store)

    Then one day I was bored so remembered the game and decided to download it
    So here I am tots addicted to ccs with an account so it won't get lost again 😀😀
