Gameplay

Qualifying Round

There are Qualifying Games that will earn a team a right to pick one of the four King-Sized Challenges. There are three qualifying rounds. A team that wins the first Qualifying Round will earn the right to pick one of the four King-Sized Challenges that they want to pick. A team that wins the second Qualifying Round will earn the right to pick one of the three remaining King-Sized Challenges that they want to pick. A team that wins the third Qualifying Round will earn the right to pick one of the two remaining King-Sized Challenges that they want to pick. A team that did not win the third Qualifying Round will have the remaining King Sized Challenge that was not picked.

  • Jelly Time - The players on the teams are strapped to candy canes while trying to be the first team to remove 12 jelly squares from the board. The first team to remove 12 jellies wins the round.
  • Candy Toss - One member of each team will be the throwers and their partners will be the swipers. A candy will appear on their boards and that will be the candy the throwers will throw into a box in front of their partners. Once the candy reaches the box, the swiper will have to match that candy in order to move on. The first team to four points wins the round.
  • Licorice Maze - One player from each team will scramble through three Licorice Mazes and then remove a Licorice Lock by making a match by swiping an unlocked piece. Once the first player is done, they will tag the second player which they will do the same thing. The first team to do it twice wins the round.
  • Cake Bomb - Using their pointers, the teams will try to remove eight slices of a cake by matching next to them using candy sticks with pointing hands on the end. The first team to remove eight slices of a cake wins the round.
  • Candy Rush - It's a relay race where the team players take turns making matches on a board that grows every two matches. The first team to six matches wins the round.
  • Sugar Spin - The players on the teams are strapped to turntables while trying to be the first team to remove 12 jelly squares from the board.
  • Cherry Drop - The players race to make matches in an attempt to get a cherry down to the bottom. But the one making the matches has to do it blindfolded and must depend on his/her partner to guide them.
  • Free Yeti - The teams while strapped to candy skewers, will try to free a yeti under the frosting by making matches near the frosting to remove them.
  • Stuck on You - A hazelnut at the top of the board is surrounded by frosting. The teams (who are stuck together) have to clear the frosting by making matches near it, and then make matches to drop the hazelnut to the bottom of the board. The first team to do so wins.

King-Sized Challenges

Each challenge has a 2-minute time limit for teams to make as many candy matches as they can. However, making certain combos will add time bonuses (just like the actual game). A four-candy match gives the team another 5 seconds, while a five-candy match gives the team another 10 seconds. The top two teams that have the most candy matches will move on the Ultimate Candy Clash Round for a chance at $100,000. In case of a tie, the team who made reached that number of matches first receives an advantage of the higher position.

  • Candy Cart - The team in control, wheels around the on-the-floor board on a two-person cart trying to make the matches.
  • Sugar Swing - While suspended over the on-the-floor board one player uses a long pointer to make the matches while his/her partner navigates.
  • The Balloon - One player swings in the air facing the stand-up big board, with his/her partner holds him/her by a rope.
  • Spin Cycle - Both players on the team in control swings side to side facing the stand-up big board. The catch in that they are placed back to back and spinning around throughout in a random manner.
  • The Claw - One player hangs over the on-the-floor board while the partner navigates the hanger. Based on the famous but complicated arcade game.
  • Gumball Drop - Both players are tied together while gumballs appear down the board to make things hard for them.
  • Candy Ladder - One player will be on a giant ladder while the other will move the ladder.
  • Helping Hands - Players swing over the on-the-floor board while making matches using the special pointers.
  • High Rise - Both players on the team in control swings up & down facing the stand-up big board.
  • Candyvator - The team stands on a special elevator used for window washing. Both players must press a button at the same time to go up or down.
  • Yankety-Yank - The players will hang on a special swing which will yank them all around the board.
  • Vine Climb - The team in control uses vine to climb up & down the board.

Ultimate Candy Clash

Both of horizontal wall and the vertical wall are split in half which means that the top two teams, who made the most candy matches in the King-sized challenge, will be playing against each other. On the horizontal wall, one member from each team will have to match up candies to get a key all the way down to the bottom. Once a player does that, a real key appears and takes it to activate his/her joystick. The joysticks control their partners who will be suspended in the air facing the vertical board and making matches. The first team to get 50 matches on the vertical wall will be going home with $100,000.

The team in the lead chooses one of these three boosters, and the other team chooses from the remaining two.

Along the way, each team can use one of these boosters:

  • For Candy Cloud: A bubblegum troll clouds up their opponents"? wall for 10 seconds.
  • For Double Delicious: A yeti makes a team"?s matches worth double, but only for 10 seconds.
  • For Miracle Match: A character named Tiffany makes three matches on their team"?s behalf.
  • For Freeze Burn: A ice cube freezes their opponents' wall for 10 seconds.
  • For Candy Tornado: A tornado will blow away all of their opponents' candies.
The catch is: each booster can be used only once.
