Rome 87 is the fastest and easiest way to get all three resources. You almost have to try to lose this level. You can get 30k of bricks, hats, and pinks almost every time. It is my go to level to earn gems.

You don't collect green gems by playing levels. You can either drill for them (the Drill can be built in Tokyo) or earn them by completing certain tasks and helping hands.

My current favorites for resources to get green gems or ship to another city -

Tokyo: 88 but no pinks and 107 for all, with about 99% success rate
San Francisco: 32-1, 93
New York: 18 for for lots and lots of bricks and 142-1
London: 99 but no bricks and 115-1
Paris: 116
Rome: 62, 63, 72, 87, 101 some are surprisingly easy

Usually don't bother replaying on Sydney level as green gems can't be purchased there. Plus, since this is the first level and I didn't know what I was doing, I built a lot of resource centers

Level 91 in Shanghai was good for me

Sorry but I disagree with those who recommend replaying Paris 116. Not a reliable win and averages a measly 6k in resources.

I'm only in Shanghai but these are the best replay levels for me:

Sidney
95, 109

Tokyo
45, 86

San Francisco
32, 55, 93, 95

New York
18, 69, 142.1

Paris
73.4, 75, 116*

London
8, 34, 115*, 115-1

Rome
87*??, 115*

Berlin
99, 107*

New Orleans
14-1, 32, 71, 106-2*

Barcelona
24-2, 45-2, 61, 84, 91, 96

Shanghai
24*

The levels marked with * are the absolute easiest levels where you almost have to fall in to a coma to lose! Rome 87, London 115 and Berlin 107 are the best, in that order. Whenever I get stuck in a current city or just want to play the game for stressless fun, I will replay Rome 87 to accumulate all of the Resources and use them to drill for Green Gems when they are required. (I have over 10 million Bricks, Hats, and Pink Gems sitting in Rome at any given time. ) That way I can just pass on really difficult and/or difficult Helping Hand cards where the pay-off is Green Gems. I like playing Gummy Drop! to relax after a hard day so I do whatever I can to progress. I have more money than time so I'm not above playing cash for Coins. It makes more sense to me to buy 1100 Coins for $9.99 rather than slog through 3 tiers of 10 levels just to win 500 to 1000 Coins. But, hey! That's just me! And it hasn't cost me that much to quickly advance to Shanghai in a very short time.

I will update this post with any subsequent easy replay levels. GOOD LUCK!

UPDATE: I now have an average of over 57,000,000 Bricks, Hats and Gems accumulated in Rome 87! I NEVER have to waste Lives trying to win Green Gems to build landmarks. I haven't discovered an easy Los Angeles replay level but I will be on Seoul soon. Any ideas?

Great post Caribou. I think this post should be pinned. I am also in Shanghai and agree with you 100%. I am older, 65, but find GD doable and interesting, it just takes patience and (unlike other match three games) strategy. The timed-levels are often too hard in other games for my old reflexes, but are generally easy in GD.

I love how sometimes things just fall right and an impossible level is solved with many moves remaining after many tries. I have purchased only the two extra lives and one 500 coin pack, which never showed up, so I learnt my lesson.

I use Rome 87 to build resources and relax, like you. Another great level is Barcelona 106-2--which is impossible to lose (I have tried doing all the wrong moves and I still win alot of resources). And it is fun to watch stuff blow-up.

Thanks for your extensive post.

I really need help with bricks in Shanghai? Anyone know which level I could replay to get the most bricks? I need about 150k of them to finish and leave Shanghai.

As the person who started this thread, back in April, all I can say is Wow! Fifteen thousand hits and counting?! I'm amazed and grateful to everyone who posted to this thread -- and to the moderator who "stickied" it.

I'm even more grateful now: An app glitch sent me back to Sydney and I had to start over. I've reached Berlin (again) and right now, my very best recommendations to replay for resources are these:

NY 18: Bricks
London 99: Hats and pink gems
Rome 87: Bricks, hats and gems

Newer players should know you won't get coins for replaying these levels, just lots of resources you can exchange for coins and green gems. Happy playing everyone!

I don't find those ones for Barcelona to be easy at all and there is no 24-2, or 45-2 unless the poster meant that the 2nd level of 24 and 45 were easy?

The gummy's giveth .... and the gummy's taketh away

Love this list, very helpful.

When I started New York, I found I was winning TONS of bricks, then I arrived at the building beside NY 20 and discovered I needed 800,000 bricks to build it. NY numbers 10, 11 and 12 saved the day. Those are the ones which I found delivered the most bricks, thousands each game.
