Mining for Diamonds

1) Zoom into mine

2) Leave game

3) Turn on airplane mode

4) Back to farm

5) Mine with shovel 2-5 times

If you don’t get any diamonds,  STAY in the game until the disconnect appears..  Then leave game and hard close it. Turn airplane mode off – And you still have all your shovels, so you can try for diamonds again.

Once you get the diamond and you want to KEEP IT, you HAVE to go BACK to settings and QUICKLY turn off airplane mode before the disconnect appears. Also, you have to work in small quick batches.. Mine 3-5 times and stop to wait for disconnect.. OR go to settings to turn off airplane and save the games progress.

Yes, it works with TNT and dynamite, but they don’t harvest as many minerals – So it may take longer to get a diamond


1) Zoom in to Tom

2) Then leave game

3) Turn airplane mode on

4) Back to game

5) Send Tom for your item

If Tom returns with 7-8 items and you want 9, WAIT in game until disconnect appears, leave and hard close game. Turn off airplane mode in settings – Tom will still be standing and ready to send out again, if he comes back with 9 things, you have to get to settings and turn airplane off before the disconnect.

Mystery Boxes

If you spend diamonds to open treasure chests and you DON’T WANT the item it unlocks, Don’t COLLECT IT, leave the game and hard close. You get your diamonds BACK. And can try again.

The Mystery Box is behind my house and I can’t get it

How do I get rid of the frogs

Purchase a pond and drag the pond over to where the frogs are…they will jump in

When should I get my boat?

Most players you will encounter here will highly recommend getting your dock repaired as soon as you are able. Don’t wait for any machines! The longer you wait, the higher level you will be, therefore, you will have more higher-level items needed for your crates!

IMPORTANT FACT #1: In order to achieve Captain III (as well as the first two awards,) you MUST fill ALL CRATES in all boats until the award is achieved. You cannot let a boat sail without filling…or you’ll be starting over.

IMPORTANT FACT #2: Your boats will WAIT for you to open your game. In other words, if you know your boat is arriving at the dock in 4 hours, but you will be at work soon afterward, DON’T OPEN YOUR GAME! Likewise, if you know your boat will arrive 15 minutes before you go to sleep………DON’T OPEN YOUR GAME! Let the game stay closed, because your boat will wait up-river until you do, even after its designated arrival time. You will have a set number of hours to completely fill all crates, and you don’t want to open your boat until you KNOW you’ll have some time to work on them.


We typically let any sugar, cream or syrup boats sail, without filling their crates. Once you’ve hit your Captain III, you can (and should) do this, too. Those items are always in demand to produce OTHER items, and while people will want to help you, it’s difficult to part with them. Of course, there are always exceptions.

Roadside Stand Tips & Tricks


For those who may be new to the game and need to earn coins. Eggs, bacon and eggs, wool, milk, bacon, sell about 50 coins less than max and they should go consistently.

Any sugars or dairy products will go super fast, always do the max amount. … Pies and cakes, sell at the max amount. The higher level items will usually go fast.

Jams, juices, and ice cream go very fast at top price. Feed will go very fast at top price also.

People like me can’t seem to resist, lol.

Goat milk, sell at top price also. Raspberries, blackberries, apples, cherries, cocoa, coffee beans, you can sell at top price or slighltly below and they will also go fast.

Crops that are typically used for feed, sell at slightly below top price. There will be people that fill their machines, realize they’re out and need more.

Potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, strawberries, lavender and pumpkins will all sell at top price or slightly below pretty well. I’ve noticed a lot of people don’t grow a lot of these and just buy them. Me for instance, I only grow tomatoes and buy the rest.

Ore and bars sell extremely fast. Jewelry will also go very fast. While ore and bars aren’t worth much, the jewelry will bring in a nice coin.

Building and land materials go quickly, always max the price.

Shovels, TNT, dynamite, axes, and saws I recommend hanging onto. They don’t sell for much, but if you do sell, always max that too.

Fill up your stand with unadvertised stuff and put the advertised thing at the end…or close to it (on the right, rather than the left). I suggest something that won’t get bought up quickly, like full price bacon & eggs. The idea is you want that item to stick around longer because then the ad will stay up.

Stick around as the shoppers come by. As they buy things up…BACK FILL! Take full advantage of the ad.

Fill your stand and advertise as often as you can. Even if its just wheat. See, people will start to see you as a power seller, so they’ll start stopping by more…following you, etc. more people stopping by = more biz.

I’ve found that the slower selling items do well if sold in LOW doses, (1-2 in a stall,) and GROUPED together in adjoining stalls. People will buy them quick if they need them for boat/truck orders…BUT they won’t buy them if you put 10 of them in one stall. The price SCARES them. Instead, if they see 1-2 at a time,the price low, so they’ll jump on them. Especially if they see three stalls with them and they think. “Hey…I need 3 sets of 2 of those for my crates!

On the flip side…Awesome stuff will sell immediately even if you sell it in bulk for full price. I’ve found that cakes, juice, jam, etc… will sell immediately even if I sell 6-10 of them together for a bazillion coins.

If your store LOOKS pretty, many times things will sell better as well. For instance, I’ve alternated chili popcorn and roasted tomatoes through my stalls, just because it LOOKS nice. Whenever I’ve done that, they sell very fast. So………either group things together in stalls or arrange them so it’s pleasing to the eye.

Another trick, if you’re loading up your store with many of the same item…make sure your advertised item is well to the end/to the right, after many others (ex: you’ve just loaded 7 stalls with 10x wheat…then make the 8th one the advertised one. This means those people who’ve come to buy that wheat will more than likely buy the others first, leaving your ad intact.)

Seems there are three “sets” of ads that will rotate in the paper…

1.) Bacon/eggs

2.) Pretty good stuff

3.) The “Frenzy” stuff.

(The frenzy stuff seems to stay the least amount of time, while mainly bacon and eggs sticks around longer.)

If you advertise the hottest stuff (Barn and Silo expansion items, land Expansion Items, Cakes, Juice, etc…) you’ll find yourself IN the frenzy paper, and people DON’T shop for long in that paper. They just SWOOP in, look for the item advertised and SWOOP out. If you advertise the medium stuff, (produce, muffins, etc.) then you’ll find your ad placed in the medium paper. I personally think this is a good place to be. If you advertise bacon and eggs, you’ll find yourself in the slooooooooow moving paper…which has its benefits, because chances are you’ll have the ad up much longer.


Many people fill their store, then they will “back fill” with cool items. SO, if you land in a store to find something highly desirable BUT it’s gone…stick around a bit! You never know…they may be backfilling and you’ll be staring at 10 Barn/Silo Expansion Items that everyone else missed.

Most people will just check and move on when the ad changes and the “feeding frenzy” begins. That means not many people will wait to see if the store owner is backfilling.

If you have the time, poke around in the paper…don’t just go to the ads for the things you’re interested in. On the contrary, many times the BEST stuff is hidden within!

KNOW YOUR PRICES! Many people will sell things WELL under the top price, because they’re cleaning out their barn or silo or they really need the coins. You can buy low and sell high…………a capitalist’s dream.

Seems there are three “sets” of ads that will rotate in the paper…

1.) Bacon/eggs

2.) Pretty good stuff

3.) The “Frenzy” stuff.

(The frenzy stuff seems to stay the least amount of time, while Bacon and Eggs stick around longer.) When the frenzy hits, if you can afford it, buy up any BEM and LEM you can afford. It can’t hurt, because you can sell it JUST as quickly as you bought it, if you decide you don’t want it. Do it fast, though! They sell fast!!! Sneeze and you’ll miss them all.
