Double Materials week (green rings), Red Ring weeks and Candyland weeks give extra materials
Caravans stay doubled throughout the year when not claimed

Mines will be marked by a red '2x' symbol. Only Materials will be doubled.
What to do during a Double materials week? It depends a bit on your style of playing the game.
If you are interested in your level and lvl-ups (via caravans or pillars) then do all the mines with the best xp/energy factors. Those give the best return on invested energy.
All reps listed here Material Mine Page. You will see a column XP/energy [2x week] , sort on that and you know which mines give the best xp/En ; return on spent energy.
Any mine with a factor lower than 5.5 is not advised as you would be better of spending that energy in a running event.

If you dont care much about your level, only do the mines that give useful materials.

DMW is an important twice yearly special week that can make your cooking/smelting much easier next 6 months.
It also functions as an important part of the strategy for leveling up faster by converting all those materials in to experience via Caravans or Pillars.
If you save up all your Green rings and spend them all during this week you will have a decent stack of important ingredients and materials.
Arguably it is even more important for mobile players to focus on collecting rings where you can because you dont get all the wood and coal gifted as computer players often do.
It will cost some gems speeding up the fortune green ring mine but it is worth it.
This also will daily free up some energy to play events/region with as it saves you doing food, wood, coal etc ingredient repeatables during much of the 6 months.

It is also the week where you go fishing with your saved up worms. Although it is not a very attractive strategy when you are in Egypte/Scandi as you would need to do without fish recipes for 6 months.
It is advisable to start saving up on eels worms for 6 months and dont do eel recipes sometime end of China or when in Atlantis so you can continue this process of double harvesting when you need a lot of eels in Greece.

At the end of the week you can consider leaving one tile in all mines you dont usually do and be prepared for next postcard week.
And lastly.....start saving up (again) after this week and be prepared for next double materials week.

This is the best week to sell your materials via the caravans and use your Caravan ticket tickets.
Jadeite and Obsidian Keys are not doubled. Count for achievements is not doubled.
This is the week to use your (old) 5 minutes event recipes.
Any production started before the week and claimed during the week is now also doubled. Likely next time this is not the case.
Any production started during the week stays double and can be claimed double after the week ends. (You might have to restart the game to get the double)
This gives you the option of extra level-ups/Energy during for example a Builder Week.

Minimum level to participate: lvl 50
During builder weeks you work together with all players in your region on a shared goal:
Building a community building and unlocking all floors.
There is a short new story-line and repeatable material mines.


Your task is to collect a special material in the mines and repeatable mines
and exchange it for special Coins.

SPW builder2


By exchanging the materials you contribute to the shared goal with
all players in your region unlocking/building the 8 floors.
Each region has a progress bar that unlocks next stages of the event.
Every 12.5% a floor unlocks. You will have to wait sometimes
until your region has collected enough special material.

SPW builder8


By exchanging the materials for coins you get the event achievements
and the keys to unlock the loot areas on each of the 8 floor.
To do this you will have to
do the 3 story mines + 6x a repeatable material mine.

SPW builder3


With the coins you can buy good camp equipment and other goodies.
Continue doing the repeatable material mines for more coins and more goodies.

SPW builder4


At the end of the week when your region has build all floors
you will have the chance to find a golden ticket on the top floor.
Buy a very strong regeneration camp equipment with that in the shop.
For lower level players: Make sure you clear 2 spots 4 high in your underground camp
to be able to buy the Golden ticket item.

SPW builder5


Builder weeks are social weeks about cooperation rather than competition,
although some will see it as a race.
So far each event, all regions managed to complete their buildings within time.
Builder weeks are a replacement for the Strongman weeks and still have elements
of that discontinued event in them like a quiz-mine and a roll/drag-mine.
Well worth week to invest some extra energy in.


Shows how you are doing compared to other players in your region. No prize for #1.

It is part of the 6 Month Special Week Cycle to accelerate your game by leveling up faster with caravans and materials.
Collect as many Green rings as possible during Postcard weeks, Builder events and the rest of the 6 months.
Then use the rings during a Double Materials week and finally converting all that material during a Double Production week in to X experience points
making you level-up faster , using caravans and tickets. The resulting level-ups give their energy reward with which you can dig more.
It can be interesting to invest some saved up food in this week once at higher Regions.
The 6 month cycle can also help you get enough materials for your daily cooking and smelting

You can prepare for a postcard week by removing all but 1 tile from each available repeatable mine, helping you with a quick first round.

Cards can be used in the shop until one week after the event ends.
Cards are event specific and can not be used in any future postcard week.

Each postcard event comes with a new set of Achievements (collect 50 cards)
Starting Spring postcards 3 the achievement rewards have been made segmented.

Extra Coins can be earned by serving more Customers in the repeatable mine Old Lady's Cornershop which opens after completing all quests. This mine has a chance connected on what type of elixer (and thus ingredients) is required.

Why extra coins?
For more equipment/goodies from the shop & Achievements.

If you insist on completing the achievements, be aware that it will likely take more times the repeatables than you would want.
The achievements require 900 of each ingrediënt
At this point in time it is not clear if the achievements will reset next version of the event or if they continue where you leave them this week.

It is highly advised to spend the Alchemist's Coins though as it is likely they will not be valid next version.

During Red Ring Week a new map with repeatable ring mines will appear on the Events-map.
Requirements to participate: level 35 and completing the first Isis quest Continuing The Adventure.
Goal of this week is to collect Materials and Tok1642Red Rings.
The Red Ring repeatable mines give 1Tok1642 Red Ring that can be used in the Red Ring Reward mines, similar to Green rings.
The repeatable mines also give rare materials Mat047Mat092Mat143Mat197Mat235Mat329Mat398 or Sys001
The achievements and repeatable mines will not reset when the next ring week comes, you will continue at the same point you left it.
Red Rings can be saved for future Red ring weeks. They can not be seen in your inventory until the next Red ring week starts.
It can be a strategy to save up red rings until you reach a high enough region. But there is no guarantee there will always be a next ring week.
For exact information at your Level/Region, please use the Daf2 extension for the computer version of the game.
Locked mine mobileLocked Mines: Only mines available for the region of your progress will be unlocked. Other mines will unlock as you progress to higher regions.
