Clash of Clans: How to Beat the Checkmate King Challenge

It is time for the King to Shine!

The ongoing September 2023 season of Clash of Clans, revolves around Supercell and signing a partnership Chess Clash collaboration has introduced the season’s second challenge event, which is now live and featuring the Chess King Skin, with the challenge being named the Checkmate King Challenge. As Clash of Clans players are eager to take on this fresh challenge, we have devised effective strategies to 3-star this Checkmate King Challenge.

Introducing the Checkmate King Challenge in Clash of Clans

This challenge is pretty tricky when you consider the previous challenge, given how you have all the dangerous defensive buildings apart from the Inferno Tower, which you have in the Town Hall itself. Beating this base with the troop combination offered is easy, but it might go completely awry. So, planning your attack becomes important.

Once more, the reward structure remains consistent with previous challenges. Along with the extra resources that are provided, players can gain 400 XP, 25 Gems, and 1x Builder Potion.

The key to success in this challenge hinges on your strategic planning when it comes to eliminating enemy troops, optimizing the use of the new Battle Drill Seige Machine, and ensuring the Hogs thoroughly clear one side of the base. You can approach this challenge from whichever side you need, but we will explain it from the bottom side of the base.

From the bottom right side of the base, you need to create the openings to get the King and the ground troops to enter and penetrate. So, we do this by dropping the Wall Breakers to break in each of the compartments. On the left bottom side of the base, you will deploy three Balloons, one each to the defenses, in order to lure out the traps.

Now, deploy three loons each for each of the defenses, followed by the Electro Titan. The Titan is there to take down the extra traps if present, and once done, deploy three Ice Golems spread on the earlier created openings, followed by the King, two Head Hunters, and the Apprentice Warden. On the side of the Monolith, deploy the Battle Drill to take the defenses down.

Once the bottom side of the base is cleared, the troops will be able to lure out the Clan Castle troops, for which you will counter with the Poison spell. While this is happening, you will notice that the Drill would still be there, and once it reaches the Town Hall, you can release the troops inside it, which is the Sneaky Goblins, to take down the Town Hall quickly. Half of your work is done here.

Now you have to concentrate on the top side of the base. Using the Hog Riders at your disposal, you need to clear the double hero and Monolith Scattershot cluster, for which you will follow up by deploying two Skeleton Spells for the initial distraction. Rage the area and spread the Hog Riders to attack the side followed by the two Headhunters that remain.

Once the Hog Riders move, deploy the remaining two Skeleton Spells to distract the Heroes, whereas the Hog Riders are cleaning the defenses. As the Hogs reach the Scattershot, use the heal spell on them to prevent them from taking more damage, and this will be enough to get your three-star attack in place.
