Hearthstone: The Gift Exchange Tavern Brawl is back!

For all you Hearthstone lovers who missed the opportunity to get the Winter Veil Wreath cardback in 2015, the Gift Exchange Tavern Brawl is open once again today, on February 1st, and for those who have already won one brawl, you will receive a Classic Card Pack!

The Gift Exchange Tavern Brawl as many of you already know, is a new game mode from Hearthstone, even considered by many to be the most fun. Your main goal, of course, is to win the match and win the main prize, the Winter Veil Wreath cardback, or a Classic Card Pack.

The crates will always give you gifts every time you destroy them, including your own crates, so you can make use of this to prevent your opponent from getting gifts. However! Know how to play wisely, if you destroy your own box on your turn, there will only be another one of your side on your next move. The gifts that you will receive are 1 mana spells, and with it, you can discover your opponent’s cards, but, for each card you discover, it will cost 5 mana less than normal.

This is a cool game mode for beginners to learn more about individual cards. You should think hard about destroying the crates, because if you destroy an opponent’s crate, you will discover specific cards from his class, and if you destroy yours, you will discover cards of your own class.

Hearthstone is a game that requires you to have a good strategy when making your moves, and in the Gift Exchange Tavern Brawl, you will need to get as many gifts as possible and preventing your opponent from getting them.

On the one hand, this is a good opportunity for players to get the Winter Veil Wreath cardback, after all, who does not want to own all the possible items? But this may end up being a bit unpleasant for those who got the item in 2015, because it will no longer be such an exclusive item, so if you already own the Winter Veil Wreath cardback, you will not be able to boast so much now as the number of people that have the item will increase. But do not be so sad, you can win a Classic Card Pack at least.

So what are you guys waiting for? It’s time to start brawling! I’ll probably be spending the next few days playing Hearthstone simply because this brawl is so fun. If you haven’t already tried this game, I highly recommend playing it and you can check out my previous post on Hearthstone here.

Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft

When Blizzard decided to launch the paper-based version of World of Warcraft it was not a surprise to most gamers. This game befell its predecessors including Pokemon, Magic: The Gathering, and YuGiOh. Fans were left dejected when Blizzard opted to remove the game from the market but little did anyone know that the developers were going to pull yet another surprise that will leave people talking. The new game was none other than Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. If you have never played this game then you have a long way to go in the gaming community. The game has been around since the year 2013 in which it was first launched.

Over the years, Hearthstone has received positive reviews from gaming enthusiasts and critics alike. This is yet another reason as to why you should seriously consider trying out this game after reading this review if you have never played the game before. Despite the bad press and skepticism that it has attracted, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft remains one of the most addictive and popular online TCGs of the millennium. Hate it or love it, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft is simply one of a kind.

Hearthstone can be defined as a digital collectible card game that allows players to collect and craft their cards along with their decks, and take part in 1 on 1 combat against other deck builders in a couple of different game modes. Essentially, you build a board with monsters or minions and try to take your opponent’s health down to 0 in order to win. Each hero starts with 30 health and by using monsters, minions or spells you deal damage to your opponent in order to defeat them and claim victory.

Some game modes include Constructed Play, Arena and Brawl. In constructed, you are expected to play with a default or, as it’s name suggests, a constructed deck. In arena, you are required to draft cards to form a deck and play against other arena duelists. In brawl, Blizzard makes a fine case for a “for fun” game mode with their weekly challenges and wonky game rules that many players would argue to be the most creative game mode we’ve seen in years.

Fans of the Warcraft series will not be disappointed to find that cards like Leeroy Jenkins or Deathwing are included in the Hearthstone franchise. Most of these rare cards are classed as Legendary and can be extremely hard to obtain or cost a bunch of dust to craft.
This game is meant for both beginners and experienced players. Regardless of your level of experience as far as collectible games are concerned, Hearthstone has simple modes that will make it easy to play the game right from the start. At the introductory level, you will learn about the basics of the game as you take a walk through different kinds of duels and PVE while unlocking cards that you will find along the way. One of the interesting things about this game is that players have the privilege to select classes when constructing decks.

In conclusion, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft is among the most entertaining games that anyone can play. The game is easy to play, competitive, and most of all, ADDICTING. iWaggle definitely recommends any gamer to give this Blizzard franchise a shot. Finally, as it so happens, Hearthstone Academy also provides Hearthstone Boosting services, which you can use if you are having trouble with the PVE quarters and climbing the ranked ladder.
