My Town, created by Broken Bulb Studios, is a Facebook game where you can create your own town. Our My Town strategy guide contains information about how to play My Town, useful My Town tips, and how to win lots of money in the game. As Broken Bulb Studios continues to develop their game, we will be working to update this guide as frequent as possible so it may reflect the latest My Town tips and strategy. Feel free to let us know if you have any such information or data to share about the game and we will include it the next time the guide is updated.
My Town Beginners
Creating roads – When getting started with My Town, one of the first things you will want to do is build your roads. Your roads will outline your town. When you are first getting started, you will have a nice size plot, but once you start adding things, you will see that an expansion would be great. Let’s start by creating the roads. At the bottom of your screen, you will see the green buttons. Look for the button with the road and click it. Below the button, you will now see a menu. In this menu is the roads. The roads are free to use, so select the road that you want to use by clicking it. Then click your mouse on your town. That will place the road in your town. If you are creating a straight road, you will need to continue clicking your mouse and lining the road up. You can go back to the road menu and select four ways, curves, and more.
Creating sidewalks– Creating sidewalks is done the same way as creating roads, except you have to select the sidewalks. You will need to click the decor button to open the sidewalks menu. The decor button has a tree on it. When you open it, you will see your two sidewalks. One is called a sidewalk and the other is called an alley. Select the one you want buy clicking it. Then click your mouse in your town where you want the sidewalk to go. Continue clicking to build your sidewalks.
Buying businesses – After building your roads and sidewalks, you will want to purchase you a business or two. When you first get started, you will only have a couple unlocked, but as you climb the levels, more will become available. To buy a business, you will need to click the green button with the building. Then the menu will show below that. You will see the business that you can purchase. Click a business to purchase it. Then click your town to place that business. If you want to add more, you can click another one and add it. Businesses are pretty cheap to purchase. The first business only costs 45 coins to purchase. As you level up in the game the cost will increase.
Buying homes – You will also want to purchase you a home for your town. To purchase a home, you will need to click the green button with the house on it. The menu will appear below that and you will see the homes you have to choose from. Click the home you want to purchase and click your town to place it. If you want to purchase another home, choose another one from the menu and click to place it in your town.
Buying cities – In the cities menu there are items like gas stations and restaurants. To add these My Town items to your town, click the green button with the city. The menu will open below that and you can click the city you want. Then click your town to place it where you want it.
Collecting money – The more businesses, cities, and homes you have, the more money you will make. Each building will generate income at a given rate. When your money is ready to be collected, the building will turn green. To collect your money, you will need to click the building that is ready. The money will be added to your total and some of the buildings will give you points when you collect.
Resetting your timers– Once you collect your money, you will need to reset your timer. To reset your timer, simply click the building again. The timer for the building will reset and you can come back and collect again when it is time to do so. Don’t forget that every time you collect from buildings you’ll need to reset the timer.
Outline colors on businesses, homes, and cities – You may notice different outline colors on your buildings. Each color represents something. If your building is green, that means your building is ready to be collected from. If your building is red, that means you have waited too long to collect your money. If it is red and you collect the money, you will receive a smaller amount than usual. If the outline is blue, that means you need to reset your timer for the building.
Buying decorations – In the decorations menu you’ll find My Town items like trees, bushes, benches, parking lots, and fences. Everything you need to decorate your town with can be found in the Decor menu. At the bottom of your screen, you’ll need to click the green button with the tree. When the menu opens, you can use the arrows to browse through the decorations. You will also find that most of these decorations are fairly cheap. To buy a decoration, click it and then click somewhere in your town to place it.
Moving decorations – If you want to rearrange your decorations you may do this too. All you have to do is click something that you want to move. You will then see a menu open. In the menu, click the Move option and move your mouse to where you want to place the decoration and click on it. The decoration will then be placed in the spot you chose.
Rotating decorations – Some decorations can also be rotated. If you have decorations that you want to rotate, click on the decoration. A menu will open and if you can rotate it, you will see the rotate option in the menu. Simply select that option and the item will automatically be rotated.
Removing and selling decorations – Some decorations cannot be sold. All free items like roads and sidewalks cannot be sold either. So, if you want to remove them, you will need to click the item you want to remove and select remove from the menu. Other decorations that were purchased can be sold instead of deleted. Click a decoration that you want to sell and select the sell option in the menu. You will then be able to see how much you it’s worth before you sell it.
Sending and receiving gifts – Sending and receiving gifts in My Town will help you and your friends build your town. In the free gifts section, you will find businesses, homes, cities, and trees. Sending your friends gifts will help them build their town and save them money from buying them outright.
To send gifts, you can click the Free Gifts tab found at the top of your screen. Once on the gifts page, you can click the gift that you want to send. Then click the Send button at the top of the gifts. When the next page loads, you can check the box next to the friends that you want to send the gift too. Click the send button when you have finished selecting your friends. A box will then open and ask if this is the gift you want to send to your friends. Click the send button in this box to send the gift to your My Town friend.
To accept My Town gifts from your friends, just visit the request page on your Facebook profile and click the accept button beside any gift that was sent to you. If you have more gifts to accept, you can go back to the request section and accept another one.
Selling gifts – If you town is too full to add more gifts you can always sell them. To sell your gifts, open your gift menu and place your mouse over the gift you want to sell and the sell button will appear.
Inviting friends – If you have friends that do not play the My Town game, you can easily send them an invitation. If they accept the invitation, they will show up on your my Neighbors page. At that point you can request that they become your neighbor. To send an invite to your friends, click the Invitation tab at the top of your screen. Then select the friends that you want to invite and click the send button.
Deleting items with the bulldozer – If you’re looking for a faster way to delete items from your town you should try using the bulldozer. The bulldozer icon is positioned at the bottom of your screen. Locate it and click on it to select the items you want to delete.
Bookmarking My Town – If you bookmark your My Town game, you can easily access it from any page when you’re logged into Facebook.

To bookmark My Town, click the yellow star in the top left corner of your screen.
Top icon bars – You have three bars located near the top of the screen in My Town. The first bar is your coins bar which lets you know how many coins you have. The second bar is your Town Cash bar which shows how much town cash you have on hand. The last bar is your points bar that displays how many points you have, how many you need to reach the next level, and what My Town level you’re currently on.
Sounds and music – You can turn your music on and off using the icons at the top of your screen. You will see that there is a sound icon and a music icon. Clicking each icon one time will turn them off or mute them. Clicking them again will enable them.

How To Play My Town
How to earn My Town coins– There are two ways to earn coins in My Town and that is by collecting from your homes and businesses and by selling items. Since selling My Town items doesn’t generate that much income, it’s very important to collect your money when it is ready.
How to earn town cash – The only way to earn town cash in My Town is by leveling up. Every time you level up, you will get one town cash.
How to earn experience points – There’s a couple of ways to earn points in My Town. First, you can earn points by collecting money from your homes and businesses. Second, you can earn experience points when you visit your friends. Each visit to a My Town friend will earn you 5 points per day.
How to buy more coins and town cash – If you need more cash and coins you can always buy more. All you have to do is click the Add More Coins and Cash tab at the top of your screen. When the page loads, select the tab you want (i.e. coins or cash). You can also fill out offers and surveys to earn cash and coins as well.
Moving homes, cities, and businesses – If you want to rearrange your town, you may easily do so. To move buildings, click on them and select the Move option from the menu. You can then move your mouse to where you want the building to go and click in the location you want to place the building.
Rotating homes, cities, and businesses – If you want to leave your building where it is and simply rotate it, you can do that too. Click the building that you want to rotate. A menu will open and you will need to click the Rotate option in the menu. The building will then rotate and you will need to click your mouse to set it.
Selling homes, businesses, and cities – If you have homes, businesses, or cities that you no longer want, you can sell them for a little extra My Town money. To sell a building, click on the building you want to sell. Then select the sell option in the menu that opens. When you click on the building that you want to sell, you’ll be able to see the Sell For price. This is the amount you will get when you sell the building.
Adding and removing neighbors – Having neighbors in My Town will benefit you in two ways. For starters, they may send you gifts to help out with the building of your town. Then you can visit your neighbors daily to earn My Town experience points. Before you can visit neighbors, they will have to be on your neighbors list. To add a neighbor to your list, you will need to click the My Neighbors tab at the top of your screen. Your page will reload and you will see a list of all your friends that play My Town. Beside the friends is an Add as Neighbor button. Click this button next to the friends that you want to add as your My Town neighbors. If they accept your neighbor request, they will become your neighbor and you will be able to see them in your neighbors menu. If you have neighbors that you want to remove from your menu, click the My Neighbors tab again. This time simply click on the Remove button next to the neighbors you want to remove.
Visiting and helping neighbors – You should visit and help your neighbors once every day. Visiting and helping your neighbors once every day will earn you points. You will get five points for each neighbor you visit and help. To visit your neighbors, you will need to click the green button with the people on it at the bottom of your screen. That will open your neighbors menu. Next, click on a neighbor that you want to visit. When you get to their page, it will ask you to help them. Click the accept button and you will be rewarded your five points. Your neighbors menu should still be open and you can click another neighbor to visit. Continue doing this until you have visited all of your neighbors. Then click the home button in the bottom, left corner of your game. That will return you to your town.
Expanding your town – After awhile you’ll find that it’s time to expand your land. Your town will become very crowded after adding some decorations, buildings, and roads. You can expand your town at any time as long as you meet the requirements. If you are paying with Town Cash, you do not have to meet any requirements. If you are using coins, however, you’ll need a certain amount of neighbors and 1,500 coins to do expansions. To expand your town, you will need to click the green button at the bottom of your menu that has a square on it. That will open the land expansion menu where you can see your options for expanding your town.
How to use My Town gifts – If you have My Town gifts waiting to be used, click the gift button at the bottom of your screen. This is the green button with the gift box which opens your gift menu. In this menu, you will see gifts that you have already accepted. To use a gift, click on the gift and then click on a location in your town to place the gift.

My Town Strategy
Schedule timers – It is crucial that you reset your timers at the right time so you don’t lose money. If you have a building that is ready to collect from in four hours, make sure you come back that specific time to complete the collection. If a home turns red, you’ve waited too long and you’ll receive less coins as a result. Scheduling your game play in My Town can help you keep on track and prevent a loss in profits.
Buy highly profitable buildings – When choosing between buildings you will want to buy ones that are the most profitable. Please our buildings table to identify which which ones earn the most.
Be wary of offers – You should be very careful when you’re filling out offers to earn cash and coins for any game. The terms and conditions for some of these offers are quite tricky and may include charges that aren’t clearly noticeable at first glance. Later you may be surprised to find them showing up on your cell phone bill or elsewhere.
Expand your town – Use the land expansions to grow your town and therefore the number of My Town neighbors you can have. Doing this allows you to earn more coins and increase profits by adding new buildings to collect money from.
Help thy neighbor – Visiting your My Town neighbor and sending them gifts helps you too. You’ll be able to earn more experience points and they’ll be more inclined to return the favor of gifting.
Post occasionally – My Town rewards its players for posting or sharing accomplishments on the wall of their Facebook profile. After posting, your friends are able to click on your post and get a Town Bonus. These Town Bonuses are in forms of coins, cash, and other prizes. If you’d prefer to disable auto sharing on My Town and other Facebook games, check out our Facebook Guide for detailed instructions on how to do so.
Faster loading – If you’re having problems waiting for the My Town game to load, you should change to a faster web browser. Opera or Google Chrome are two great browsers that you may want to try to speed up page loads.
Informed invites – When you send out invites for people to add you on Facebook, it’s always a good idea to let them know why you are requesting the add. Including a short line like “My Town” or “My Town add” will accomplish this.
Join My Town groups – Growing the number of My Town neighbors you have is a key part of the game. That is, adding neighbors unlocks land expansion packages and permits you to gain more experience points. Thus, you’ll be able to level up faster and earn more My Town money. A great way to find more potential My Town neighbors is to join My Town fan pages and groups. There My Town players can add each other by posting their profile link to the wall of those fan pages and groups. This presents a great solution to finding more My Town members without sending out invites to people that don’t play My Town on Facebook.
Send My Town tips – Submit your My Town tips to help us keep the My Town guide current. This allows us to ensure that other My Town members like you are well educated about the game and the guide remains chocked full of the latest My Town info.
