why doesnt everyone get gems on sale =o thats weird, i always seem to get them on sale o.o and yea the catalog thing takes a while...sometimes i wanna buy gems but eh... this game has a lot of work that needs to be done on it.
There should really be an "Are you sure you want to purchase _____ with gems?" option or some other confirmation popup when buying gem stuff. I remember when I accidentally bought a chest while I was scrolling.
Nope that was a few minutes ago, and I wanted to save those hard earned gems to expand my boutique too. :P
Screw you TeamLava for taking our gems against our will!!!
I accidently purchased 10k coins TWICE with gems very early in the game (20 gems lost), almost made me cry, but I learned my lesson. I always click carefully, and read before I click anything now. I have not accidently spend gems since then, and with luck and continued carefulness, I hope I never will.
Also, I don't buy gems. It takes time, sure, but mastering catalogues to lvl 2 isn't too hard, 4 takes much longer, but it will happen anyway as you play the game. I think the key to enjoying this game is patience, and playing it for the long run. I may one day purchase gems, but for now (lvl 61), I'm doing fine with what I've earned from goals, downloading other Teamlava games, and mastering catalogues. I have purchased numerous counters and racks for gems, one display at 45 gems, and am ready to buy another display now.
My daughter never bought gems and has around 4 displays purchased with gems she owned by mastering and doing goals and she is level 47 with 58 gems left and a lot of catalogs not been mastered
