Challenges will take the Clash community through a stroll down memory lane as each challenge features units and strategies that have defined each year of Clash of Clans. Each challenge is sure to give players a nostalgic look through 10 years of the landmark strategy game.

Additionally, the 10-year anniversary will also allow players to go on a journey with a time-traveling Barbarian all the way back to the 1980s and 1990s. Players will have access to a new series of mini-games directly within the Clash of Clans app. Players will get to explore the mythical history of Clash in a fun and exciting way.

More Surprises Along the Way

Other surprises also include a new documentary featuring what would it be like if the game were made in the 1980s, which you can watch below. Developers Supercell are no strangers to excellent cross-promotion, as their 2015 Super Bowl ad featuring Liam Neeson was rated no. 2 by YouTubers as best ad at the Super Bowl.

Furthermore, the company has teamed up with General Mills to produce a cereal called Barb’s Choco Boom-Booms, which is available at Walmart. For even more of a nostalgia kick, Supercell has also teamed up with Topps to produce a series of Garbage Pail Kids-style cards for Clash of the Clans. These cards are also available at Walmart.


In a press release, Community Manager Darian Vorlick stated:

We could only ever have dreamt about a community as passionate, loyal and vibrant as the Clash community has become. It’s always been our goal to create games that are loved by many, played for years and remembered forever, so we want to thank all of our players who make this possible with this epic celebration and tons of rewards.

Lastly, there are also two projects from the Clash team currently in open beta. These include Clash Quest and Clash Mini.

Personally, I’m looking forward to the Garbage Pail Kids-style cards. The originals were fantastic, so it will be great to see how Topps and Softcell reimagined this card series for Clash of Clans.

You can download Clash of the Clans through the Apple App Store.
