Kingdom Tycoon is unlocked after clearing Skirmish 8. Players must use Luck Tokens to advance on the Map. Map tiles may reward players with items or special effects. The goal is to reach the end of the map, where players will encounter a Gemming Gremlin waving a black and white checkered flag. Players may also encounter other Gemming Gremlins along the way.
The map will be reset when the end is reached. If the time runs out, the map will reset and the player will be sent back to the beginning. The timer can be viewed in the top left corner.
An encounter with a Gemming Gremlin will reward the player with Gems. This will usually amount to roughly 1000 Gems per encounter. Players may also win a larger share of the Gem stash, which can be viewed in the bottom left corner of the screen. The rewards from these encounters usually range from 15K-200K Gems, with the occasional player winning the entire Gem stash.
