    ok, so it costs 20k gems to buy. So you have to use 20k of the 40k to 'get your money back' then the other 20k to buy the next one. So what's the point of it? Sorry, am I missing something here?

    Well, the point is to get 40,000 gems for the price of 20,000.
    You could reinvest the full 40,000 into getting 2 pits, which will produce 80,000.
    Then, spend 40,000 of that on the final 2 pits, to end up with 120,000 gems after purchases (100,000 profit if you don't want to count the initial price).

    This will of course take some time, but if you felt confident that this is the game for you, then it could well seem worth it.
    3 years, +100,000 gems.

    If you reinvest the Gems a.s.a.p. into more Gem Pits it should 'only' take 2 years to get the full 100k profit from the 5 you are allowed. The only problem is that you then can't actually spend any Gems on anything else until you've built the 5th mine after about 383 days.

    Once the last mine is up and running you'll be getting 440 Gems per day for ~162 days and this will tail off as your mines deplete until your last mine collapses after a total of ~750 days (since you built the first mine).

    If anyone is curious of how many gems are left exactly 1 year after building the pit then here's an answer for you: 1170. Minimal walking distance.
    Was fighting windmills from Aug 2012 to Oct 2019.

    Can I demolish a gem pit that still has gems in it and rebuild it in another location?

    Hi all,

    As a result, if we buy this item, it produces gems for us? It will produce gems forever and ever, am I right?

    Every 13 min 09 seconds we get a gem... That is, that's all... Anything???
