I’m kind of digging the beta of Hearthstone. It is everything I enjoy about other trading card games but more simplified and streamlined ā€” with a World of Warcraft flavor that I find rather delightful.

I’m playing it on OS X but it is absolutely perfectly suited for the iPad and I could easily spend a lot of time playing it on the iPad once it is available there. Here’s some footage ((sans audio because I was watching Frasier like a boss)) of my first game against a human opponent. Maybe I’m just jonesing hard for a WoW fix since I haven’t been able to play for 18 months or so, but it’s a pretty great game and I’m impressed with how it plays.
