Township Icon.png

Townships are available at level 7 and consist of groups of 1-20 players that can compete in weekly competitions and chat together. Players in a township unlock the ability to complete township orders. A township is represented by an isometric map where players can see their café, other township residents' cafés, customers' houses, township buildings and the festival area.

Creating a township[]

Townships can only be created by VIP players and cost Diamond 50 to open. After creating a township, township leaders can edit various settings, such as the township name, description, emblem, township type (Open, Closed, Invitation Only), primary language, and minimum required level to join.

Township names[]

Township names must be unique. They can contain spaces, alphanumeric characters, special characters, and be written in different languages. Some Unicode characters cannot be used. If the township name is changed after its creation, it will cost Diamond 100 for each name change.

Primary language[]

Choosing a primary language for a township helps other players who speak the same language find it. Players are able to search for townships based on their primary language through the township search function.

Required level[]

Setting a minimum required level only allows players at or above that level to join the township. The lowest level available is level 7, while the highest level is Level 37.

Township type[]

  • Open townships allow all players who fit the level requirements to join freely. They will be added to the township's roster as soon as they decide to join with no input required from township management.
  • Closed townships require players to send a join request, which can then be approved or denied by township management. They cannot join the township without their request being approved.
  • Invitation-only townships require players to be invited to the township. Players will not be able to send a request to join the township but will have to wait for an invitation from township management. This is most often done by being connected to either the township leader, leader assistant, manager, or recruiter through the game by linking a café to Facebook and adding each other as friends there.

Joining a township[]

To join a township, players can simply go to their café and tap on the Map icon. Then, pick a township to join from the auto-generated list or search for a township based on its name, primary language, and township type.

Players already in a township will have to leave their current township in order to join a new one. This can be done by clicking on their café building from the township map or by going to the township's profile.

Prestige townships[]

See Elite Resident for more details.

Townships with one or more Elite Residents are called Prestige Townships. An icon showing a township's Prestige status and its number of Elite Residents can be seen when looking at the township's profile or from the township map.

Resident roles[]

There are several roles available for township leaders to assign to residents. Because township roles come with elevated permissions, it is highly recommended that township leaders know and trust the residents they are granting rights to prior to assigning them a role. This is especially important when appointing a leader's assistant as they will have complete access to the township's resources in the Treasure Trove.

Township Leader[]

A township leader can distribute prizes from the Treasure Trove, expand the township using township resources, adjust the township's settings, invite residents to the township or kick them out, accept or decline requests to join the township, assign and change township roles of any resident, and destroy and disband the township by leaving it.

Leader's Assistant[]

A leader's assistant can distribute prizes from the Treasure Trove, expand the township using township resources, adjust the township's settings, invite residents to the township or kick them out, and accept or decline requests to join the township.


A manager can adjust the township's settings, invite residents to the township or kick them out, and accept or decline requests to join the township.


A recruiter can invite residents to the township and accept or decline requests to join the township.

Township orders[]

Township structures[]

Township structures are buildings that represent each player's café on the township map. There are six styles to choose from, modeled after the interior styles: Manhattan (American), Golden Dragon (Chinese), Northern Lights, Chester (English), Provence (French) and Loft. Township structures do not have to match interior styles and have no effect on tip percentages. Players can also switch structures at any time if they purchase additional styles by accessing the Storehouse from the township map.

Township structures can be upgraded using rubies to receive additional free tasks to use in festivals. All structure upgrades are permanent and tied to their specific structures. If players purchase multiple buildings, only the additional free tasks received through the one currently active on the township map will count. That is, any township structures in the Storehouse will not count towards their additional free tasks.

Players who have purchased townships structures while at one township and later leave to join a different township can find their townships structures in the Storehouse. Players must manually place the structure back on the township map to start receiving its benefits again.

Upgrade Cost Add. Free Tasks Total Free Tasks
Level 1 Ruby 30 +1 6
Level 2 Ruby 500 +2 7
Level 3 Ruby 5,000 +3 8
Level 4 Ruby 50,000 +4 9
Level 5 Ruby 150,000 +5 10

The total number of rubies that can be stored to use for building upgrades depends on the capacity of the player's Jewelry Box, which costs diamonds to expand. See Rubies for more details.


Festival Icon.png

See Festival.

Festivals are weekly events where six townships compete against each other to progress through the seven festival leagues. Participating in festivals earns the entire township rewards that can be distributed by township leaders and leader's assistants.

Main buildings[]

There are four main buildings that can be accessed from the township map. Each has its own function and purpose, but all help players manage their township in some way.

Town Hall[]

Town Hall.png

The Town Hall contains the township's information, such as name, description, league and so on. A list of all current players in the township and their contributions to the township during their time as a resident can be viewed here. Clicking on each resident's name allows players to view basic information about other residents, such as their VIP level, township role, and last login date.



The Treasury is where all donations from residents go. As in the Town Hall, residents' contributions to the township can be viewed here too, with the addition of seeing how many resources the township currently has at its disposal. Players can also transfer resources from their café to the Treasury, which can be used to further develop the township, but once those resources are in the Treasury they cannot be taken out.

Treasure Trove[]

Treasure Trove.png

The Treasure Trove allows township leaders and leader's assistants to distribute festival winnings to residents. Only resources won through festivals can be transferred to players. Players cannot directly donate resources to the Treasure Trove except by purchasing certain Special Offers.

Trophy Board[]

Trophy Board.png

The Trophy Board allows players to see their township's rankings for the most recently played festival, as well as the township's overall ranking.


Township resources are all resources found in the Treasury. These can be used to unlock new township plots on the map for a maximum of 20 residents or to unlock reward shelves in the Treasure Trove.

The 3 types of resources used in township unlocks are:

  • Trophy Trophies, which can only be obtained by participating in festivals and completing festival tasks
  • Diamond Diamonds, which can be donated directly to the Treasury or converted from donated spices
  • Coin Coins, which can be donated directly to the Treasury

Only township leaders and leader's assistants can manage the Treasury's resources and use them to unlock plots and reward shelves.

Any donations given to the township are permanently tied to that township. If a player leaves a township, gets kicked out, or the township is dissolved, they will not get back anything they have previously donated.
