Come, bring yourself to the Inn, and draw up a chair as the battles are about to begin! Choose your Hero, carefully decide what minions will serve you, and save those powerful spells for your worst enemies!

Blizzard has brought Warcraft to your digital device, releasing mages, hunters, paladins, and more to battle in the Inn, via cards. Beautifully detailed pictures, paired with witty dialogue on an easy interface has created a game so enthralling and charming that you may want to stock up on Tremor Totems!

▲ Each turn restores more of your mana, which lets you play more cards!

▲ Find the best combinations of spells, minions, and powers to bring your opponents to their knees!

▲ Nine heroes to choose from, each with unique power. Blue cards are rare, and orange are legendary.

With the number of people playing, and the variety of cards that you can choose to use, you may never know what to expect during battle. The good thing is, that no matter what deck of cards you are facing, you will be paired with someone who matches your skill level. This allows for a fairer chance to complete your Quests, while netting gold after each victory to buy new cards!

Design unique card decks, decide how you want to play (heavy hitter, spell-slinger, or even zany cards only) and prove your might! The battlefield might be one of ale quaffing and crackling fires, but you will need lightening fast reflexes and a steady strategic mind to reign here!
