During the time when Blizzard announced the closed beta phase of this game thousands of blizzard fans and gamers in general started to scout the internet and social media sites just to get a close beta keys.

Official HearthStone Game Description

Sheathe your sword, draw your deck, and get ready for Hearthstone – the fast paced strategy card game that’s easy to learn and massively fun. Start a free game on Battle.net and play your cards to sling spells, summon creatures, and command the heroes of Warcraft in duels of epic strategy.

Gameplay, Graphics, Excitement Level and more
I thought getting use in playing hearthstone is very hard but I was wrong. The game is straight forward and easy to learn. You start by playing a game with game AI. Then you got to beat all of the heroes one by one to unlock them. You will be awarded with gold which you can use it to purchase new set of card deck.

With today’s technology game companies should always release graphics and environment that matches our generation. The look and feel of Hearthstone is simply wonderful and I don’t have nothing to complain with its graphics, soundtrack and environment.

Gameplay Video
I uploaded my first gameplay against this AI. It was a practice game. You can watch it below.



Now the level of excitement. Well, this is my first experience in playing card game like this infact I never played anything similar with this be it offline or online. So I can say that the level of excitement is simply a wonderful experience. There is a suspense on your opponent strategy especially when its a close match toward the end of every gameplays.

Personal Conclusion
My game routine for the past three days were a little bit different. This is because I played a lot of Hearthstone and I stopped at least for now playing other random games. Its an addictive game and I might be talking more of this game in some of my future game posts. Get it and play the game at http://blizzard.com/
