My first reaction to this announcement was WTF...WHY?!?! Is their a huge demand for card games like this? I personally don't see the appeal so maybe i'm missing out. I suppose if its playable on a phone i'd give it a whirl but i can't imagine myself ever bothering to play it on my pc. Can't see the point.

CCGs can be brilliant if the mechanics are sound (Magic) or awful if they arent (YuGiOh).

Always wondered when they would get round to making a card game as they sell actual cards don't they, so they can probably tie the two together.

EDIT: Having watched the video I think I'd get annoyed by the voices pretty quickly. Also if they are going to put it on tablets and phones etc I think they should add an option to set up games against your friends. Oh and I don't think it is exactly a major risk to make a card game based on Warcraft.

Ah mongs. Where would we be without them.

By the looks of things you gave them a bargain. They seem to go for about £60! People are nuts.

Got a fucking email saying my Heathstone beta key has been taken down as you're not allowed to sell keys. Bet Blizzard got wise to the whole thing. Missed out on free money :x

Go onto the hearthstone FB page always idiots on there wanting a key and willing to pay for it. Ebay bought mine down and i went there and got £25 which went towards my black skull edition of AC4

I'll give the facebook group a shot. May be able to gouge people a bit more on there 8)

edit: Meh, gave up. Everyone kept asking me to give it to them for free. Used the code instead.

They've announced they're working on iPhone and Android versions of the game too, though they won't be releasing those until at least the second half of next year.
