Hog Race Challenge Decks: Best Cards For Winning 'Clash Royale's' Lunar New Year Event

Looking for a good deck to help you win "Clash Royale's" Hog Race Challenge? Check out our list of the best decks for getting six wins.

On Monday, Supercell launched a new Hog Race Challenge to celebrate the Lunar New Year (it's the Year of the Pig.) The challenge introduces a brand new game mode — the Hog Race and allows players the chance to win a ton of valuable resources including cards coins and a new Hog emote. The challenge is broken up into three distinct stages, the last of which requires six wins in order to unlock the new emote. If you're hoping to snag all the Hog Race Challenge prizes in one go, we've put together a complete guide to the event, including deck suggestions for getting the final six wins.

What is Hog Race Mode?

If you aren't familiar with how the Hog Race works, during this mode Royal Hogs spawn every 12 seconds behind each player's tower. As the battle progresses and elixir ramps up, so does the amount of the Royal Hogs spawned.

The challenge is broken up into three stages — Hog Race, Hog Draft and Hog Race Challenge. The first two stages are mainly for practice; players must gain three wins to unlock the next stage. Losses don't count in these first two stages, only wins. The first two stages operate as draft battles where players must pick cards from a set of options. Once players have completed the first two stages, they move on to the Hog Challenge which requires six wins to complete. Players can lose up to two games during the challenge before they are disqualified. Supercell has given everyone a free first try but additional attempts will cost 30 gems. After winning a certain number of battles, players will unlock one-time prizes which are as follows:

Stage 1 - Hog Race Prizes

  • One Win - 6 gems
  • Two Wins - 8 Rare cards
  • Three Wins - 888 coins

Stage 2 - Hog Draft Prizes

  • One Win - Golden Chest
  • Two Wins - 8 Epic Cards
  • Three Wins - 8,888 coins

Stage 3 - Hog Race Challenge

  • One Win - 222 coins
  • Two Wins - 88 Common Cards
  • Three Wins - 8 Gems
  • Four Wins - Golden Chest
  • Five Wins - 8,888 Coins
  • Six Wins - Hog Emote
