LAND PRODUCTION AND HOUSING UPGRADES

For Tiny Empires players, the price for housing upgrades remains constant. The cost of other land production upgrades varies slightly based on personal acres (so I’ve placed info there for cost reference). The castle gives +2 gold/acre. Land production is capped at 30 gold/acre, from which you must receive two +1 gold/acre cards from the Mysterious Trader.  Maximum land production is 30 gold/acre.

For Tiny Empires Federation Hud players, the highest land production possible is 37 gold/acre. +1 gold/acre is achieved by winning 10 jousting tournaments at Festival. Another +2 gold/acre is gained by following a series of steps to open a book given by the Mysterious Trader. Build embassies for each of your 4 allies gains another +1 g/acre . The latest addition added by the Emperor is to pay for 20 Famine Researches for +3 gold/acre.

Trade Successful

You pass the gold to the mysterious trader. He counts it, fills a card with words, and slides it toward you. He turns away as you read: “Each acre of land produces 1 extra gold, forevermore.”

The mysterious trader has packed up his wagon, now heavy with gold. He has slowly moved on to the west, and nobody seems to know when he will return.

    Does the Mysterious Trader only offer the 1g per acre after you buy the armored castle? I have seen the trader 4 times and he only offers things like that I can buy land more cheaply, my land will sell for more, or that you will always find trasure on land bought within the year.

    When you trade with the Mysterious Trader, your odds are similar to playing the lottery. It took me 3 months to receive my two +1 gold cards while the alt I created (from which all this upgrades info came from) reached the maximum 30g/acre in less than 2 weeks. You can receive the +1 gold from the Mysterious Trader before you have purchased the armor castle.

    You do not need to buy the castle to get the +1 gold per acre. It’s luck of the draw. However, the trader brings many things that will help you greatly, as outlined in this blog.

    Yes, I received the same new land improvement (farming guru). It appears to have replaced the “outsource everything” option, since I never saw that one.
