From the makers of World of Warcraft comes the addictive Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft game. Currently Hearthstone is only avaliable on Mac and Windows. It’s a card game that feels like you are playing it in a tavern. Using cards you can summon creatures and cast spells as a hero to battle other heroes. Initially you must play against the computer through five missions and then you are able to battle against other online players. After earning more cards you can alter and even build entire decks fit to your play-style.
Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft’s beta is over and now anyone can sign up for free on BattleNet’s website. Each hero has a special ability so choose wisely! The creatures summoned have funny tag lines that make them more alive. You can use real money to pay for new packs of cards or you can earn them by playing. Arena Mode costs in-game gold or real money to play but the rewards are worth it. There is also a way to directly challenge a buddy from your friend list to duel.
The AI opponents are generally easy to beat in the beginning and then gradually become more difficult. This online game is great for those who love playing Magic: the Gathering, Pokemon, Yu Gi Oh, Vanguard and other physical trading card games. It plays very much like Magic but the rules are immensely simpler. The rules are easy pick up when playing through the five missions and it is impossible to break them.
Join up and start playing Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. Enter the tavern and sit down to start playing against the innkeeper and other visitors. Don’t forget to have fun!
