How to play Hearthstone
Hearthstone is a turn-based game between two players which use previously constructed decks. The goal of the game is to kill your opponent’s hero.
Each hero has 30 life points and if they get to 0, the player loses. The player who starts the game, kicks it off with three cards. At this point, he has the option to re-roll any number of them in case he doesn’t like his hand. The next step is to draw a card which will result in the first so called mana crystal. The mana crystals are the basis of the economic system in Hearthstone: players gain one on each turn and can spend them to summon cards that need a certain amount of mana crystals to be played. These cards have different attributes: health, attack and mana cost.
The first one represents how many damage points the card can take, the second one how many damage points it can deliver and the third attributes determines how much it will cost to summon the card. To beat your opponent, you must destroy his defence lines using monsters and spells and attack him directly until his life points get down to 0.
Hearthstone is a really complicated game and proper deck building is needed in order to fully master it. You can have a lot of fun creating new combinations that are hopefully really effective against your foes – it’s a game of exploring new strategies, finding your strengths and weaknesses, and seizing that knowledge to become a force to be reckoned with.
