    A few years ago there was this Fountain called "The Gem Fountain". People would put in gems and by the end of the week, if enough gems were thrown in, a special game mode would be out for the weekend. These can consist of things like OP Bridges (Spawn with enchantment table, bookshelves, etc). Playing this as a kid when amazing, and I don't remember why they ever removed it. Regardless, I loved the idea and the concept and I think it should be brought back. Just a thought.

    This might be a fun idea considering how many players have tons of gems that will never be used and the fact that a there is a use to extra gems with that. If this could be implemented I would love to see it!

    Hey there!

    Luckily, I was around when the Gem Fountain was a thing. I didn't see any reason why they would get rid of this feature, but unfortunately, they did. Because I have hundreds of thousands of gems lying around, I would love to spend it to help players try out a new game mode every weekend. I think bringing back the Gem Fountain would help prevent players from being bored, since they could try and aim for achievements, titles, etc. I'm curious to see how well this feature will be received by the community; personally, it can serve as a source of nostalgia as well!

    I agree and disagree with this idea. I agree because i remember it being super fun to play on and it was an easy way for me to get rid of my gems, for something that i actually wanted. The games were always so unique and I loved being surprised each week on what the games gonna be.
    I kinda disagree with this idea being added because no one really donated gems anymore. The hype for it kinda stopped in the end and although I personally donated LOTS of gems, it never reached the goal anymore. So I wasted my gems for nothing & the fountain was just sitting there with no real use.

    I agree that the Gem fountain should be brought back, but a few months ago another bbgf thread was in discussion, and it came to a standstill due to a lack of reward ideas. Also, I think it might take devs too long to code op games.

    2014 veteran here. Like many others mentioned, I'd love to see Gem Fountain return. I loved all the games they put up for play there, and it actually made me enjoy Bridges. I understand if it never comes back again, but I honestly really miss it too much to not feel a little giddy if it does come back.

    The Gem Fountain was definitely one of my favorite features because not only did it help reduce my abundance of gems, but I also really liked the feature of OP games that came along with it. Granted, I understand as to why it was removed being that the games began to get extremely repetitive and the fact that people slowly started to lose interest resulted in a lack of donations. Maybe if there was a twist in regards to rewards or even the games that would be unlockable themselves, I could see it being a good addition since it’d be something new and enticing. Otherwise, it would eventually lead to the same outcome that it had the first time around.

    I remember this! I would always look forward to OP games and I would play with my friends! I don't know whether this would bring people back or just reduce the player amount in regular games though...

    Weekend brawls / the gem fountain were good, but I’m pretty sure it died or something and was just removed for that reason. I think an idea like the gem fountain would be great to bring back, just maybe not adding brawls back and perhaps something else. As for what that is I’m not too sure. Maybe bring the games back if a gem goal is met, but for only one/two weeks every month?
    This way, devs would have enough time to code and possibly create the new reward twist.
    Also, having the gem donation thing be over a larger time period would up the chance of bringing the game back for that time period.
