5 Foundational Tricks You Should Always Be Doing
Hosting Parties: You can host parties in your Town Hall. While at first they may seem to be really expensive, as you expand and build more villages you won’t notice the difference between hosting them or not. There are two kinds of parties that you can host. You can host small parties, which are worth 500 culture points. Culture points must reach a certain level before you can found a new village. Hosting parties helps bring you up to that level. You can also host big parties once you bring your Town Hall to level 10. These are worth 2000 culture Points. If you calculate the culture points vs. the cost and vs. the time it takes to host the parties, you will notice that big parties take a little less time, but cost about 20,000 wood/clay/iron/crop more than small parties. On a culture point/cost basis, what you’re paying extra for is less time for the big party. The more parties you host, the more culture points you get, and the more you can found villages to increase your empire.

Many players (both experienced and inexperienced) make the mistake of trying to do all the researches and building many kinds of troops in each of their villages. They will have the same village that builds offensive troops build defensive ones as well. This...
