One of the games that really surprised me last year, was Heroes of Warcraft: Hearthstone. Deceptively simple, it’s the kind of card game where you say to yourself “just one more round” and then you find yourself five hours still sitting by your PC later wondering why your wife left you.
Over at Blizzcon last year, I got some swag. Yes I admit it, I got some goodies. Normally, I give the stuff away to family and friends, but not this year. Besides the fact that I have a tiny Diablo figure that throws rock horns, I also got the card that you see above.
It’s pure rock ‘n roll, and it looks gorgeous. And it’s just one of the reasons why I’m excited for Hearthstone to finally go public. Season 2 of the beta is underway now for those of you lucky enough to be part of it. Everyone else has to wait, but it’ll be worth it.
