Clash of Clans

  Clash of Clans is a town building, Barbarian clashing game.  You start by building up your town in the best defensive way possible and gaining new troops to use to attack others bases.  You have to think offensively and defensively. Being crafty to create the kind of base that destroys other people’s troops and seeing them not making it past your first set of defenses, their hopes and dreams shattered on your walls, gives such a great sense of satisfaction.

 On the other side, creating the perfect army and bombarding the enemy, finding the weakness in their base and decimating their picturesque base is an adrenaline pumping high. Great troops that allow for frontal attacks, air and even underground fronts creates a lot of options and ways to attack and things you need to remember as you build your own base.  Then creating a clan with your friends, dueling friends in friendly battles, and devising strategies with them for attacking other clans means that you don’t have to play this game alone. This is one of those gems that can be played for years with something new always around the corner.
