Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft

OMG...Travis got me playing this game last night and I couldn't stop! :evillaugh:

It's free-to-play and gives me my WoW fix. He accidentally found it after he updated his StarCraft launcher to the new Blizzard launcher that combines all the games. There's a solo player mode and also Play and Arena mode, which allow you to play against other people. I haven't checked to see if you need to be online to play the solo mode yet, but I'll do that today. I'll also post some screenshots. I was too busy playing last night that I forgot to take some. :rotfl:

I checked, but couldn't find anything for offline play. I don't think it uses up too much data though. How much did you use when you played WoW?

You basically start out with 1 mana crystal and each turn you gain one until you get to 10. In the upper left corner of each card, it shows you how much mana it costs to play. On the bottom left and right, you can see the hit points and health. Depending on which toon you're playing, you can draw health cards, spells, etc. When a taunt card is played, it shields your toon and your opponent must attack it first.

The game starts out with a tutorial to show you how to play. Your goal is to unlock all of the classes and level them up. As you do that, you get new cards. You can also make your own custom decks, buy expert packs with the gold you win and complete quests. You can play against your Battle.net friends too.

It's fun for something different to play. I tried a couple games in multiplayer, but I got beat pretty badly, so I spent most of my time in solo mode. I need to get better at playing the correct cards first before I play against real people again. :uhhuh:

Here are screenshots from my gameplay this morning.

Woot! I just won my first real multiplayer battle. It says I've won 3, but the first two people forfeited before we even started playing! :doh:

I've also gotten 2 of my toons up to level 10.

That looks neat! We couldn't even download the client, now, so I still couldn't even try it. Hopefully one of these days either we'll get moved into town or we'll get the Gen4 HughesNet satellite service out here!
