Clash of Clans is a free-to-play strategy game where you build villages and work with others in your clan to pay for additional features. The primary aim is to earn trophies by attacking other people’s villages, or by successfully defending your village from attack.
Children enjoy playing Clash of Clans because it’s fun. They can be creative in how they build their village and they can play with their friends. The strategic nature of the game also develops their problem-solving skills.
There is a ‘global chat’ where users can talk with each other. Users have reported that this global chat can contain inappropriate language and behaviour including bullying from other players. Keep in mind that this function is also available within clans and similar issues can arise.
