I just tap all three buildings from beginning to end. It's a game and not worth that much hassle to go "lodge hunting". I'm at almost 17,000 emblems already without spending donuts, aside from the pyramid which looks cool. Also, not that many of my almost full neighbor list actually visit me, I assume because I'm near the end of the alphabet.
