This is the best turn strategy games. It is easy to to learn and of course it’s challenging. Although there is an option to buy more coins and crafting materials, but it’s not necessary to progress in the game at so far. And also there is no need to wait between battles as compared to others games.
Great game strategy. It has a good time killer. It is fun to fun and controls are very easy n also graphics are pretty good. Fun without any purchases.
Game is awesome. Best things in the game is that you don’t have to pay. Great and challenging strategy.
Finally a game that plays as good as it look on the TV commercial. Love the way each battle is like a little cheese match.
