Clash of Clans

Aloha Everyone,

Clash of Clans is one of the most popular games for the iPhone and Android. It is a tower defense game. You build a castle out of blocks such as walls, archer towers, cannons and so on. You then try to build an army of warriors and try to knock down the other players' castles online and they try to knock down yours.

I was introduced to Clash of Clans just three days ago by my son and granddaughter.

My village is still small and my defense is weak. However J.J. who is a non-player has been showing me photos of Carcassonne Castle and Mount St Michel fortress to remind me of the strongholds we had visited and for me to consider building mine following their examples. Very ambitious.

The game is quite consuming that I set my iPhone alarm to warn me when my builder has completed a task so I can start him on the next task without losing any minutes. Last night I woke up midnight and the first thing I did was to turn on my iPhone go to Clash of Clan site to see if my village has been raided. I am not a happy person when this little animation figure appears with a message: "Chief some one raided your village and stole your resources." The game even gives instant replays of the raids.

Once J.J. and I are back on the road, my Clash of Clan playing time would be limited as it is preferable to play using a strong wifi connection.

In the meantime, it's exciting and definitely good exercise for my brain to learn something new and something which I can learn from our son and our granddaughter.

Aloha -- Cathi
