Blizzard Entertainment’s digital card game, Hearthstone, launched its newest game mode this week, “Tavern Brawl”. For those of you who speculated what that final empty space was on the main page of the game, the tile has been flipped. Here’s how their website describes the new mode:
“Each week, a different Tavern Brawl will pit you head to head versus another player using exciting and unique rules. One week might feature preset decks, while another week could have you crafting a brand new Tavern Brawl deck following specific guidelines, while others might offer buffs to specific minion types—who knows!
Tavern Brawl can be found below the Play, Solo Adventures, and the Arena buttons on the main Hearthstone screen. You may have to toughen up before entering the fray—Tavern Brawl is unlocked once a player has a level 20 Hero.”
The first go, which ends in two days, will also give you a free pack of basic cards for winning. I’ve added a small gallery of screenshots so you can see how I did. It was a fun deck to play, especially since I don’t currently leverage dragons all that much. For reference, Sauron started with 60 health and a weapon, while I started with 30 plus 30 armor and no weapon.
This mode is also playable with friends by selecting Challenge next to their names in your friend’s list. Tavern Brawl is FREE, so if you’re looking for something that doesn’t cost gold, I’d definitely check it out.
For those wondering, I played this game on my Android phone.
