Some of you are rocking the deck. Some not so much. For the later, we know how you got the trouble on your mind. This song is for you…
Handshakes and Nods
Welcome (and welcome back) to Ye Olde Hearthstone Tavern and Inn. Our friend’s lists are growing, our kung fu getting funky and our murloc sammiches be mighty.
We’re a community that’s about Hearthstone. Hearthstone is an Online Collectible Card Game (CCG) that is easy to learn, yet challenging to master.

Ranked Play Season 2: The Black Temple
Season 2 is coming to a close and the black temple card back will soon be ours. But is that all we get for all the game, shame and grief? Really?! How about some of that shiny, happy sin’dorei glory? Or is that another thing you can do in Colorado but no where else?
Ok, let’s assume the seasonal card back is some kind of lower hanging fruit for lesser murlocs. But why can’t we mix and match the card backs. That is something we can’t do. Yet.

Hearthstone Poster Contest
The Hearthstone Poster Contest is almost over. Vote for your favorite on Facebook at May 29, 2014. Yeah it seems kind of stupid that an iPad promotional event (vote) is only being hosted on Facebook. But we all know how it is – once you work for corporate, you lose 5 points of practical intelligence off the bat. Sometimes, more.
Here’s an interesting submission by Kris Cooper. Cooper’s artwork has a lot of potential to be used in future Hearthstone content.
What you think?
Same four cards! Some of us have seen it done with our own eyes. We don’t want to report. But we do want to know where you get that hack! [laughing]
So what does Aldor Peacekeeper know, right? Follow the rules!?
Tip No. 69
Using up all your mana in a round is not an indicator that you are winning.
Don’t play cards just because you got mana to burn. There’s cards you need to hang on to for a tight, upcoming situation. Play a card because you can make it work for you. Duh!
The canned comments that can be exchanged in a match are lackluster.
Here’s some comments we’d like to see added to the menu.
1. I’m unstoppable except when my hand sucks.
2. I play nekkid. You?
3. Yes. I will accept your surrender, general.
4. Are you eating again?! Make your move or pass, thank you.
5. Are you peeing again?! Make your move or pass, thank you.
6. Could you turn off the frelling tv and finish up this match.
7. I admire your keen skill and undeniable charms .
