Upon starting the game, the player receives a bit of land with a Town Hall, some gold, and a portion of special potion. The player is tasked with expanding his or her settlement and creating a powerful army able to face the forces controlled by opposing players. In order to accomplish that, one has to erect different structures (both economic and military), recruit soldiers, and strengthen settlement's defenses. Players get at their disposal 10 different unit types (barbarians, mages, dragons, etc.), each one with a unique skillset, while each building has several possible upgrade levels.

After a successful raid on an enemy settlement, players receive gold and the aforementioned potion allowing them to upgrade their structures and units even faster. Of course, one's village can be attacked by other players – this can also happen to your settlement after you log out. This is why it is extremely important to develop sufficient defensive structures such as defense towers, cannons, mortars, and traps, all of which protect your base while you are gone.
