Why Karazhan Is A Raw Deal For Hearthstone’s Priests

The last week was supposed to be a real funky one for Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft [official site], with the launch of One Night in Karazhan. This is the latest add-on to the online card game, bringing four new weekly wings of tailored solo boss fights along with the 45 new cards which is what everyone (apart from you, inevitably) is not so secretly more…

The RPG Scrollbars: In The Cards

These days, you're just not a proper RPG unless you've got a fancy card-game spin-off either in or out of world. Gwent. Hearthstone. Arcomage. Triple Triad. Legends of Norrath. Pokemon CCG. Now The Elder Scrolls is throwing its adventurer's cap into the ring with The Elder Scrolls: Legends, as announced aeons ago, but only just going into closed beta. Quite a gold-rush, especially given that…

The Bestest Best CCG Of 2014: Hearthstone

2014 saw the release of three or four interesting and excellent card games, but it was Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft that most captured our attention and drew us back for match after match.

The Thought Processes Of A Serial Hearthstone Loser

I'm pretty new to Hearthstone, Blizzard's none-more-slick digital card game. I've just about clawed past the point where I'm randomly spamming stuff and hoping for the best, and now have a custom deck I'm continually tweaking and a few solid wins under my belt. Now I'm no longer facing total greenhorns, it's a different game. I'm losing a lot. This doesn't particularly depress me, as…

Gold, Gambling, And Getting The Most Out Of Hearthstone

“Ho ho ho, it's good ta see ya again,” says Hearthstone as I load it up for the hundredth time. “Save it you Scottish dwarf,” I think, “And SHOW ME THE MONEY.” Call me a Venture Co. Mercenary, but after a month or so immersed in the collectible card game's beta I've eyes for Gold and Gold alone. Blizzard's in-game currency is a fickle mistress,…

Hearthstone: Heroes Of Warcraft Beta Impressions

First impressions: Hearthstone: Heroes Of Warcraft is an impressively crap name. Fantasy games with terrible titles have a long and noble history, but Blizzard's Warcraft collectible card game boasts a particularly wonderful example. The classical NOUN COLON SOMETHING AND/OF SOMETHING structure is adhered to, but this is an almost gleefully bad noun. You have to go some to find a word they could have used…
