A rare and epic light display called the Aurora Boreal has now appeared in King's Candy Crush Saga to guide players to the intriguing Cosmic Climb tournament. This friendly competition takes place over three tricky rounds, with each round challenging players to ascend a Chocolate Mountain. In order to reach the top, you'll need to bring your "A" game and collect as many stars as possible.

Every phase groups players into leaderboards of 50. From there, only the top 10 players who collect the most stars will progress to the next round. It's no easy feat, but the potential rewards are well worth the effort.

Those who are at top of the leaderboard on the third mountain will harness the epic powers of the Candy Cosmos to customise fan-favourite character, Tiffi. There are plenty of fetching, festive items to try out, and the final customised version of Tiffi will wear a collection of the most popular items selected by the winners. There are, for example, festive hats, gloves, socks, and shoes to choose from.

Once the dust has settled on the tournament, the fan-designed Tiffi will be presented to all Candy Crush players throughout a seven-day event where everyone can power through levels and earn special rewards.

If you want to get involved, here are some important dates to note:

  • Round 1: 28th November - 3rd December
  • Round 2: 6th - 9th December
  • Round 3: 13th - 15th December
  • Character Reveal: 26th December - 2nd January

It sounds like the perfect way for fans to come together and show their creations off to one another. The only restrictions are that you need to be level 20 or above and be running at least app version 1.152 to take part.

If want to get back into Candy Crush Saga just in time for the festive season, you'll find it available for download now from both the App Store and Google Play.
