Hearthstone Beta Gameplay & Impressions | Dealspwn Playthrough
With the WildStar beta servers down for some maintenance, Carl decided to make a video for a game that, while he has only recently been granted access to, has become something of an addiction for him. So, in today's episode of Dealspwn Playthrough, Carl shows us Blizzard Entertainment's upcoming free to play virtual Trading Card Game Hearthstone.

Playing a quick round between the Mage and the Hunter, Carl provides commentary as he explains the basic rules of the game, discusses the potential for some rather deep tactics, and generally gushes about its presentation can sucker you in for just one more game. See it all for yourself right after the jump.

Please note that, as this is a Beta version, the footage shown may not reflect the final product.

I've played this a bit, then stopped. In the majority of games I played I thought the player who went 2nd had a bigger advantage over the person going first. So much so, that 90% of the games were decided at the coin toss start. I guess there was a degree of Skill (in deck building / card choice) and luck (card order), but that extra coin card seemed to unbalance the game.

I actually rather not go first. You get a extra coin and able to counter your opponent first move, depends on your deck.
