Trade Tokens

Trade Tokens allow players to trade cards with other players in their Clan or with the Trader. They can be obtained from Global Tournaments and by purchasing them from special offers in the Shop. There are 4 different types of Trade Tokens; one corresponding to each rarity of card in the game, excluding Champion cards. Players can hold up to ten of each token. A player must be King Level 16 or higher in order to trade; if they are not, they can still obtain Trade Tokens, but they will not be able to use them until the level requirement has been met.


With Clanmates

  • Players can start a trade by entering the Trade screen which is accessed from the Trade tab after pressing the “Request Card” button.
  • To start a trade, players need to have at least one Trade Token.
  • Each Trade Token can only be used to trade cards of the associated rarity. For example, a Rare Trade Token can only be used to trade Rare cards.
  • Once the player enters the Trade screen, the player can choose a card to request, provided they have at least one Trade Token of the correct rarity. The player can choose any card that they have already unlocked or even a card that they have not unlocked, provided that they are already at or above the Arena in which the card is unlocked.
  • Once the card to request has been chosen, the player must choose up to 4 cards of the same rarity as the card requested, to give away in exchange for the card requested.
  • Before finally posting the request, the player can add a message regarding the trade in the confirmation screen that follows.
  • A different number of cards will be traded for each rarity; players will trade 250 Common, 50 Rare, 10 Epic or 1 Legendary.
  • Once the trade has been posted, the player starting the trade can cancel it anytime before it is accepted by another player. Doing so will refund the Trade Token and all cards that were used to start the trade.
  • Players can see any trade requests posted by members in the Clan. Players must have the necessary cards and spend a corresponding Trade Token to accept a trade.
  • To accept the trade, the accepting player chooses one of the cards that the initiating player offered and takes it in exchange for their cards.
  • To trade cards, players must have a trading token of their own.
  • For players who have left a clan, there is a cool-down of 2 hours and 30 minutes before they can engage in trades, the same as donating Cards (cool-down starts when leaving a clan rather than when joining a clan).
  • Players can get Gold from a trade, but if and only if they get excess copies of a card as a result of a trade (due to the card being received being already at max level or has enough cards to upgrade to max level).
  • If a player would exceed a card's inventory by cancelling a trade, they would not receive overflow Gold for the excess Cards.
  • Players who have maxed a Card can give this Card by spending the amount of Gold equal to this Card's overflow price:
    • 5 for each Common Card (1,250 for the whole Common stack)
    • 25 for each Rare Card (1,250 for the whole Rare stack)
    • 100 for each Epic Card (1,000 for the whole Epic stack)
    • 7,500 for each Legendary Card.
  • Players cannot trade away the last Legendary card that unlocks it. For example, if a player's Miner is at Level 9 with upgrade meter "1/2”, they cannot trade it away.
  • If a player already has 10 tokens of a rarity, further tokens received from Special Event Challenges/Global Tournaments will be converted to Gold (250 for Common, 500 for Rare, 1,000 for Epic and 2,000 for Legendary). Tokens refunded by canceling a trade or purchased in the Shop can surpass the limit without being converted to Gold.
  • If a trade has not been made within 36 hours of a player posting it, the trade will be canceled and the Trade Token and cards will be refunded.


  • An NPC is available for players to trade with, as opposed to needing to coordinate with other Clan members. Like regular trades, the player will need the respective token in order to complete the trade.
  • Players will choose 1 of 3 pre-selected cards to give to the Trader. The player will also choose from 1 of 3 pre-selected cards to receive from him. The rarity of the trade is also randomly set and trades between rarities are not possible.
  • Players can reroll the possible list of cards they can give to the Trader or receive from the Trader for 10 Gems.
  • The Trader's deals will reset every day at midnight of the player's local time zone.
  • Trades for Epic Cards will only appear on the Trader every Sunday; trades for other rarities can can appear randomly at any other day of the week.
    • Trades for Legendary Cards will only appear on the Trader if the player is at 2,000 Trophies or higher.
  • It is not possible to trade the same card as the trade is offering. Trying to do this would result in a prompt saying "Trade Tokens are a terrible thing to waste".
