Gold is earned in several ways.
- Collecting from Business buildings such as the Cabin, Bakery, and Farm. These buildings produce Gold regularly and upgrading them gives you higher earnings.
- Completing quests. Many quests give Gold as a reward. Completing quests is no get-rich-quick scheme but it helps a lot, especially in the beginning.
- Some Chests reward Gold.
- Winning battles awards you with Gold. The amount changes depending on how many Stars you earned and how many times you've played that battle.
- Spinning at the Wishing Well (a building that you can win through expansions) sometimes awards Gold.
You can also purchase Gold with Rubies from the Shop or the "Get More Gold!" popup.
