Clash Royale is a free-to-play game. Of course, there is a difference between a game that’s free and free-to-play. A free-to-play game invariably tries to suck you into spending for something or the other that would make your game more enjoyable. Here’s what you can do to keep on winning without spending any cash.

Clash Royale

First off is knowing your chest timing. Chests can be silver, gold, or super magical and take three hours, eight hours and one day to unlock. Plug this into your daily schedule: save a gold for when you won’t be playing for eight hours, and a super magical for when you will be away for the whole day. Free chests appear every four hours and stack up to two, so every eight hours, you’ll want to pick those up.

Make sure you focus on strong, complimentary cards rather than upgrading just about everything. Reserve your gold for the cards that you really need to upgrade, and donate extra cards to your clan members so you get even more gold. Also, try not to spend your gems on speeding up chests. Chances are, playing for free, you’ll end up a more cautious, careful player with stronger strategy.
