Does anyone play Hearthstone besides myself and Mr. Shankly?

If you don't know, Hearthstone is like Magic except it's made by the people who made WoW. It's a free online game, you CAN pay money for card packs but it's pretty easy to earn gold from winning games and doing challenges to do that stuff. It's fun stuff.

Oh, and if you're weary about playing games online with strangers, Hearthstone is perfect because unless someone is on your friends list, they can't chat with you. There are six emotes you can use in the game and that's it. So no 12 year old boys calling you a croissant.

I never understood magic the gathering but I'm going to download it and try it. I like card games in general so maybe I'd like it.

In case you're concerned about the money thing, I've been able to do everything in the game without using actual money- just gold I made by playing. Get on this before Goblins vs Gnomes comes out so you can save up a ton of gold and buy a million GvG card packs! Or unlock all of Naxxramas!

This one is really easy to pick up and the Mage is usually the first hero everyone uses because she's very easy to play.

I think this is easier to learn than Magic. Here's a link to help you out.

I used to play a lot of Hearthstone, but reached where a point where I either needed to knuckle down and study the game seriously to make any real progress, or walk away completely. I walked away, but it was a fun fling. The game that got away.

Ok, I played the intro missions and defeated someone! I tried to unlock the rogue but she kicked my butt. I don't know if you can add people or if names or unique but my name might be Sneaky Turtle?

I think we need your username plus your Battle.net ID#.

Also, spectator mode is coming next month so it'll be WAY easier to help other players.

Yeah, if you click on your name on the battle.net program, it'll say your username followed by a number. Mine is sendmorecops #1944

I'm happy to play with anyone but even though i'm not super good, i've been playing for awhile so I have unlocked a ton of cards and I WILL CRUSH YOU.

Speaking of which, I totally just got King Krushed. :(

I LOVE KING KRUSH! One of my favorite cards and has the best intro out of all of them, imo.

My quest from yesterday is to beat 5 games as either a Shaman or Warlock- I hate both of those. I have almost no Shaman cards so I can't build any decent decks really. 2/5 so far though!

Not sure how I'd see it? I got MBM.

So I got the Rogue but then tried to defeat the Priest and he kicked my butt :) I like it, I often want a game that is quick and not too involved to play, this seems to fit the bill

GingerGrindr. If you click on your friends list (or it may be right on the battle.net main board) there will be a yellow envelope telling you that you have a friend request.

I sometimes play under my husband's account. I think it's much better than Magic. Magic almost made me cry with boredom, but I like not only playing but watching other people play Hearthstone. I should play more often; I haven't actually played in ages.

Did you watch the Hearthstone World Championship? If not, all of it is on Twitch!

So I've tried to play against players and I keep losing but I unlocked the rest of the 9 classes so I can play around with those. And I think my husband is going to play as well. So I can play against him.

What type of cards are you filling your deck up with? One tip is to always have at least a few Taunts in your deck. They won't protect you from spells but they can sometimes really mess up your opponents plan of attack, can get rid of small enemy minions, divert attention until you play an insane next turn or help protect you against a large and powerful card. It's also always good to have a really good 2 and 4 mana card for early and strong card drops, cards that do multiple damage to enemy minions (deals 1 damage to all minions, etc), cards that have helpful battlecry's and deathrattles, and if you play a Mage +1 spell cards are your friends.

Oh maybe I have to figure out how to deal with my deck? I use the default deck.

The are a few forums where people post their deck configurations. That might give you an idea of some things that work. Unfortunately I don't really know any off the top of my head, but they're easily googleable.

The deck that worked best for me when I first started was an aggro hunter - lots of charge minions, a few taunts and secrets (like explosive trap and misdirection), and a weapon (like the Eagle Horn Bow that recharges when a secret is set off). It's always good to have stuff that works in combination with other stuff but doesn't absolutely rely on it to be useful. There are some cards where you think, if I played this with this other card, I could totally win, but then you never get them at the same time and they're otherwise kinda useless.

Hearthpwn is a really good place to look for decks but at the moment it sounds like you're kind of limited as to what you can put in your deck since you only have the most basic cards. Once you start to rack up a bit of gold, I highly suggest that you start buying expert card packs so that you can start collecting cards and building more complex and stronger decks.
