Building Licences

Building Licences are used to limit the number of buildings you can have on your island at any given time. To see how many licences you have free out of the total you have available you can hover your mouse over the House icon on the top toolbar for a break down.

Increase your Licences

  • Early in the game you need to clear new sectors for which you will obtain +10 licences each.
  • Licences can also be purchased with Gems in the Store and are one of the most cost effective Gem item purchases you can make. See +10 Building Licences.
  • The reward for obtaining Level 32 is +10 Licences
  • At level 50 you can buy +5 Building Licenses at the cost of 1,300 Magic Beanstalks.


  • Buildings purchased from the Store do not use a licence and return to the Star Menu when demolished.
  • When a mine is exhausted you get the licence back.
