If you want to play Clash of Clans on your computer, you should definitely read this guide. If you’re a kid, you probably don’t have a mobile phone to play the game, but there’s nothing to worry about.
You can easily play the game on your laptop or desktop computer using Bluestacks. Another great reason to use Bluestacks instead of other emulators is it comes pre-rooted which can help you with the Clash of Clans mod by COG.
In this guide, I’ll explain how to download and install Bluestacks and also install Clash of Clans on it to start playing it for free.
How to Download and Install Bluestacks on Mac and PCs?
It’s fairly easy and simple to download Bluestacks. Just head to Bluestacks.com and click on the “Download Bluestacks” button.
Remember, you need at least 4 GB of RAM on your computer in order to use this. You also need a graphics card or at least an Intel HD 4000 or above integrated graphics to use this.
There was a modified version of Bluestacks which no longer works, so keep in mind, you need at least a minimum spec we have mentioned above.
Once downloaded, you can double-click on the downloaded file to start the setup of Bluestacks and follow the screen’s prompt to install the app.
Once you are done with this, you need to install Clash of Clans in your virtual Android device on your computer.
Before that, you need to setup Bluestacks just like you would set up a new Android phone, like logging into your Google account to access the Play Store and a lot more.
These are fairly simple and mostly known, so I’m not going deep into this.
Installing Clash of Clans
You might think, how can you install Clash of Clans now?
It’s just another simple step, just like in any other Android device, you need to open the Google Play Store in Bluestacks app that you just installed.
You have already logged into your Google account, so there’s nothing to worry about, you can search for “Clash of Clans” in the search bar on the top.
Now, similarly, just click on the official Clash of Clans game by Supercell. It will take probably a few seconds or minutes to download, depending on your internet speed.
Once you have installed the game, you can now launch it in the Bluestacks App Player and enjoy the game without the need of a mobile device.
Alternatively, You can also download apk file of Clash of Clans from any website and open that apk file with Blustacks app. It can be done using right-click and selecting Open with option. So it’s not just about Class of clan app, but you can actually install any apk on Mac and Windows.

Now, that’s how you can play Clash of Clans on your PC using Bluestacks. One of the biggest advantages of Bluestacks over other Android emulators is that it’s totally free and comes with an ad-free experience.
This is impressive for a free software and there’s no limit to the number of apps you can use. It’s the whole Android software crunched into your PC so you can download and use any apps.
Remember, if you’re already having a Clash of Clans account and levels and progress, you can continue that on Bluestacks. You can transfer saved data from Android devices which is really cool when swapping phones. All you need to do is just log into your Google account which you used to login to your previous account, and all your levels will be restored. And this will continue and save all your current Bluestacks progress as well which can be accessed again from your device if you want to.
