When you start on Clash of Clans, you priority is defending your base. You don’t want others to take away your resources. So, put the Town Hall in the middle of your base to protect against your enemies.

Keep your Base Tight

If you are ever attacked by an enemy, the best offense is the best defense. Make sure all your buildings are close to one another, so your defensive items can defend and support one another. If you don’t do this, you base will be demolished in no time.

Defense, Defense, Defense

To purchase defensive items to protect your base, go to the “Shop” button at the bottom, righthand of your screen. Click it, and you will have some options which include: Treasure, Army, Resources, Defenses, Decoration, and Shield. Click on “Defenses” to show you your options.

Building Walls

Make sure that you place walls around your most expensive structures. You can purchase them by going to the “Defense" section, and going through the same buying process. Also, having double walls is better than just one strong wall.

Using Resources Wisely

Remember that your resources do not just grow on trees. You can see your resource counts at the top, righthand side of the screen, but know, it takes time to harvest your materials, so use your troops sparingly. Don’t use all your troops at once when attacking because you will not get them back after the battle. To attack an enemy base, click the “Attack” button on the bottom, lefthand side of the screen.

Other Resource Options

Instead of using your gold and elixir to pay for things, you can use gems to speed up the process. Remember that everything takes time to build and create, so whenever you click on a building that is being worked on, you can finish the project by clicking the “Finish Now” button at the button of your screen. But, gems are very rare, and people actually spend really money to add more to their collection, so be mindful of how much you really have.

Clash of Clans is really one of the best free games around. Continue to check up on your clan, and you will see the growth of your empire.
