Clash Royale is a mobile strategy game by Supercell that pits you against another player in battle using decks. It has a good balance between being a collectable card game and a mobile battle arena and satisfies one’s desire for both. Each deck contains 8 cards that are either spells, monsters, or buildings and it is up to the player to unlock new cards and build their own personalized deck. Clash Royale is a great game to play when one is short on time and is in need of a gaming fix, considering each match usually only lasts about 3 minutes. One of the pros about Clash Royale is that it is not pay-to-win like so many other games on the mobile market right now. This game is a lot of free and portable fun.
In Clash Royale there are a variety of cards to choose from when building a deck and each card has strengths and weaknesses. All cards have a rarity value of uncommon up to legendary with the legendary cards being the hardest to find. The amount of cards may seem overwhelming to a new player at first but after the learning curve it can be understood that each card, and combination of cards, has weaknesses that can be exploited. At the start of each game the deck chosen for that match gets shuffled so each match will be a little different than the last, even if the cards are all the same. This creates a more interesting game overall because you will have to figure out which combinations you will be using for each new match as your cards get used and more are rotated in. In conclusion, the cards are very well balanced but there are specific decks that counter other decks.
This is a screenshot of the deck I have put to together. I do not use guides to create my decks but there are thousands of guides, if help is needed, available on the internet for new players to use to get started. The rule of thumb that I use when creating my deck is to have one tank killer, at least one horde killer (aoe spell or monster), one Bowler (because let’s be honest, he’s broken), and one flying troop killer. After I have filled that criteria, I can usually just fill in the rest of the deck with random cards and be successful in battle.
