Your starting squad is great

In lots of games, the starting squad or characters are not good enough. Players often try not to spend too much on them to upgrade. However, this is not the case in Cookie: Run Kingdom.

This means that you have no option but to battle. The started squad is not that bad, it will help you to earn three stars if used the right way.

Use crystals for the production

We know that you want crystals for the cookies, but trust us, using them for production will also be very beneficial. With so many methods to get crystals, utilizing a few hundred to lengthen the manufacturing queue for highly specialized structures might be advantageous. Early on, mining sugar cubes for the Smithy’s tool construction can be a time-consuming process. Because you won’t obtain a second Sugar Quarry until your castle reaches level 5, it’s worth spending crystals to gain an extra one or two queue spots.

Collect daily rewards

Every day, Cookie Run: Kingdom offers away a lot of free items. If you have a notice on the envelope that is on the top right-hand side, you can collect free items. So it’s good to check. Each day, a free item is there in the SHOP menu, under the Necessities tab. Furthermore, there is also a Daily Gifts option at the bottom of the screen that can award you Soulstones and Toppings.
