‘Clash’ Babes: Finding Friends on the Battle Field

Jett Blackheart comes from the (very) small town of Newcastle, Texas. With a population of just 506, Newcastle might seem like an unlikely home base for a global network of titanic female “Clash of Clans” players. How did it happen? After giving a mystery game her daughter downloaded a try, Blackheart was hooked. Now, three years later, Blackheart has become the leader of Clash Babes—a female-only group comprised of members from around the world. Beyond the battlefield, these women have formed a network of support and friendship that spans continents. This Great Big Story is a paid contribution by Supercell.
