"Clash Royale is a fast paced, card based PvP brawler. Collect Clash troops, and use them to wreak havoc on your opponents tower." (ClashRoyale.com) At our school Clash of Clans has gave way to the new Clash Royale game of choice.
During the game you have battle decks or characters that you play to defeat your opponent friend or stranger. The goal of the game is to get your characters to take defeat your enemies and take your enemies towers. So to do that easier is to create a really well put together battle deck.
As a class we would discuss what some students do to build a really well put together battle deck.
Student examples may include: damage, elixir, and different types of cards.
We would further discuss that a combination would be the best way to go, but we are going to put together a battle deck based on damage. But, further more we are going to put together the best battle deck based on damage per second. The more damage you are dealing per second the higher chance you are to claim the enemy tower faster.
Here students can download the app and see what to play or they can look online at all the different characters and use their knowledge of unit rates to put together the best deck. Here are some example characters.
Here is a list of characters and damage and hit speed.
Character Damage Hit Speed (in seconds)
Knight 75 1.1
Archer 40 1.2
Bomber 100 1.9

There are other characters they can research, but the work that students will do will be to:
- Calculate the damage per second of each character.
- Develop their top 8 characters to go in their battle deck.
- Develop a written reasoning of why you selected those characters to be in your battle deck
- EC. Try it out, did you win? Did you lose? Write a paragraph on why you won or lost?
I want to engage the students next year. I know that quite a few of my students play this game and I think this is a great one day project to get students thinking and evaluating data to influence decisions they make.
