Charms/Wishes: Precision 
Points to get 1, 2, 3 Stars:  175 000, 360 000, 435 000

Round 1level 166 #1

Starting Bubbles: 50
Special bubbles:
Obstacle Shadow Bubble Shadow Bubbles
black bubble-is-hard-as-rock Black Bubbles

Pic 166 #1:   We have a new bubble in town.. Please meet the Shadow Bubble.  See link below to read all about it.  It will help you with your game and understand  how it works.  There are 3 parts to this level, so if you have the rainbow bubble try to save a least one of them for the third part.   Clear out the bubbles to the right and left of the Shadow Bubbles in the center. Then they will move upward and not to the side. That way you have no problem with loosing bubbles and have enough to drop the ceiling

Jorge Valenzuela Melendez: Best to shoot bubbles on left and right as quickly as possible, before shadow bubbles spread, may run out of bubbles. Also try to get the gold and green spiders before pulling the bubbles to increase your score. Use very quick shots, the shadow spreads quickly.

Round 2level 166 #2

Starting Bubbles: 72
Special Bubbles:  
Obstacle Shadow Bubble Shadow Bubbles
black bubble-is-hard-as-rock Black Bubbles

Pic 166 #2:  Clear a path on the inside of each Shadow Bubble to stop them spreading. You will see a pink “V” to give you an idea of what you need to do. You then can finish clearing out each side of the Black Bubbles to get them dropped so you level 166 #2 jorgecan see the ceiling.

Jorge Valenzuela Melendez: Be careful, Shadow bubbles are very fast, drop the black bubble cluster so you can continue.  See Aiming HOT SPOT.

Round 3level 166 #3

Starting Bubbles: 82
Special Bubbles:  
Obstacle Shadow Bubble Shadow Bubbles
yellow-spider-bubble Spider Bubbles
black bubble-is-hard-as-rock Black Bubbles

Pic 166 #3:  Shoot up the center between the black bubbles to open it up. You will notice the “V” in pink to give you an idea.  Then move to a side to drop one section of the back bubbles.  Once they are cleared you then are able to bank shot and clear out the other side. At that point you can work on building up your gold and green spiders for some good points.

Sebastian Ramirez: To clear the triangle composed of black bubbles, one bubble is necessary to level 166 #3 Sebastianshoot anyone on it (see at Pic below, marked with 1°), with this. The roof goes up and increases your precision angle(2°).

Vanessa Williams  On the 3rd stage, I found it helpful to clear out the sides first then attack the shadow bubbles toward the end when the sides were all cleared out :-) I also used the Precision Charm and the Scroll Charm to see up to the top before clearing out the shadow bubbles when possible. The Scroll Charm worked wonders for me!

Editor’s tip:  When you hit shadow bubbles with a rainbow bubble, your bubbles will not spill from cauldron!

    • Oh, bless you for that insight, Clayton! It is really handy to plan your scoring for round 1. I wish I had a like button for comments, LOLs.

  1. all very well if ya willing to pay for charms, i have done all first 165 levels without buying anything, who can say the same, not many i reckon !!! paying is cheating so not that skilfull by players who have their videos on here !!

  2. I have done level 166, all three levels with 450,000 points and three stars. Still did not give me the level. That is hogwash. You cannot beat it without buying and I refuse to buy.

  4. in all this videos one thing is common: player ALWAYS gets right color at the right moment…well, it isn’t so in real game, quite opposite…if I need red bubble, i’ll get all the colours but the red, and this happens even for 10-12 bubbles in row…that can’t be coincidence. so,31.september will be the last day I’m playing bubble witch,because with level 166 all the fun has gone with the wind…so long bubblers and those who a willing to pay for online game.

  5. well, I get a new record – needed 2 red bubbles, haven’t get any for 20 bubbles in a row!!! and spent 20000 coins for potions, couldn’t pass level 166. congrats to developers on such hard level, definitelly quit playing this game.

  6. I have been on level 166 for some time, have won 5 stars but still seen to be on level 166, am I missing something?

  7. I just made this level without any potions or charms so it IS possible!! I am so relieved haha. I tried it about 15 times and now i’m on to level 167! Don’t lose your faith it IS possible to play this one without potions or charms!
