The Mountains


Grandpa Smurfs lives in the mountains and they can be reach from level 25 onwards with the Hot Air Balloon (Please read the article about the Hot Air Ballon for more Information on how to reach the mountains).

Unlike the island and the mainland, the smurfs living in the mountains do not grow crops (except for fruits on magical shrubs) but dig for rewards. There are to shovels available, a “normal” one, which can be used by a Smurf to dig for 30 minutes and costs 200 Coins as well as a golden one. The golden shovel costs 2 Smurfberries and it only takes 5 seconds to dig with it and moreover it will give out better rewards more frequently than the normal ones. To start digging, simply choose a shovel from the build menu and place it somewhere on the ground, a smurf will then start digging at that place.

Rewards from digging in the mountains include:

  • items for Grandpa Smurfs Tasks (Magnifying Glass, Pyjamas etc.)
  • XP and Coins
  • Resources (Wood, Stone and Dye)
  • Smurfberries
  • Gems that can be placed on the ground

Once a Smurf has finished digging it will wait until the reward has been collected. Because only magic shrubs, which do not wither, are available in the mountains and digging rewards do not disappear before they have been collected, it is not as important to come back to the mountains in time as it might be on either the mainland or the island where crops could wither.

Just likes the island the mountains have their own character limit for Smurfs, which is at around 240 to 250 Smurfs. On level 25, when the island can be reached for the first time, there are two Smurfs available. Moreover it is possible to build two additional mushroom houses. From then on for each new level, a new mushroom house can be build.

Unlike the other mushroom houses the ones in the mountains cannot be customized (yet) and there is only an upgrade for 4 Smurfberries available for one additional Smurf, which means the maximum is only 2 instead of 3 Smurfs per house. It is also possible to buy additional Smurfs without houses for 5 Smurfberries each.

    What should I do if my Storage Crystal also full (It changed the colour to white)? It allows me to keep storing crystals but just give me a maximum xp. I now have crystals all over the mountain, can I have another Storage Crystal?

    Yes, found it… I had forgotten where to find the holes. Many thanks!!!

    Hi all, I have stopped plying for a while and started again a couple of weeks ago. I already had the mountain and dig quite a lot if crystals before the break. As I have returned, all holes to dig have disappeared, and I can’t dig anything anymore. It is obviously a problem as slowing down the collect for resources to build the wonders. Is this a bug, have I done something wrong, or have the holes disappeared in a previous update of the game? any help welcome… Many thanks :))

      I don't really understand your issue, on the mountain there are not predefined holes were you dig in. You place a shovel from the build menu (under Featured) and Smurfs will dig were you place it. When they are done the digging place disappears and you have to place another shovel.

    I'm debating my next sb purchase and am wondering if buying grandpa's hut really seems to be worth it. I have around 45 crystals already & am on level 35. There doesn't seem to be any way of knowing how much xp you get from him or the crystals though. I also, was curious if you still get xp from crystals when you store them. I'm sure you have this info some where but, you guys are so detailed & on top of things it's a little overwhelming trying to find specific info sometimes. Thanks!

      Without Smurfette on the mountain you get 25 XP per Crystal from Granpa, with Smurfette on the mountain you get 30 XP per crystal. You also get the XP for each crytal stored in the crystal storage. The is a limit though, for the number of crystals on the ground as well as the number of crystals in the storage. The number in the storage, with the backhoe, is 4000 Crystals (which means up to 100.000 XP per day from it). On the ground it is a couple of hundreds, but I don't know the exact number. So I think he is worth it if you dig a lot and don't have the crystal grinder
