If this is the first time you have started playing, you will find that the number of available building plates is very limited. In fact, you will only have two to choose from. However, as you progress through the game you will unlock new building plates. Another way to get them is to go through the store, where you will have to shell out some rubies to buy them.
Once in build mode, you can use all the items you have collected during the game to create what you want. If you want a friend to join the building, just press the button “Invite a friend”. After that, a QR code will be generated for your friend to scan after tapping the option “Join Buildplate”.
We warn you that during construction your partner may to build or destroy whatever you want on your build plate … so choose your companions wisely!

No do not worry. It is only possible that someone Edit or destroy your buildplate if you have invited this player to do it yourself. So breathe gently, your building will always be there no matter how long it takes to replay.
How adventures work
