How does this game work?  Do you buy card packs with real $ or is there a way to earn cards?

The game is free and it is possible to play the game completely for free by winning packs of cards which expand your collection, but it is also possible to spend $$$ to buy packs of cards to speed up the collecting of new and more powerful cards.

In terms of game-play its like a dumbed down Magic the Gathering where you can only play cards and take actions on your turn. But you also have a hero with a special ability that you can activate so it is still a strategically interesting and fun game.

There are also numerous formats - Single Player vs. AI mode, Casual constructed deck mode, Competitive constructed deck mode and a format called arena which is like a M:tG Draft game where you are shown 90 random cards and have to pick from them and build a deck of 30 cards then see if you can string together a win streak against other people with similarly built decks to earn rewards (gold and card packs).

The game also has daily challenges which you can complete to win gold which you can use to buy cards or entry into Arena competitions.

Thanks!

I'd forgotten how the daily challenges can suck you in!

Thankfully a few more days in and I am still managing fairly well without many of the newer cards. Although I do have 2,800 Arcane Dust if I decide I really need something.

I'm sure he'll get plenty stupid tonight at his rally in Arizona.

Oh! Just in case you don't know - if you complete the first single player fight for the Frozen Throne expansion, you get a free Frozen throne Legendary. They're pretty good.

My son plays this game more than he probably should.  Never tried it myself.

I played beta quite a bit, stopped rather early after the release, took it back just as Grand Tournament was released and never completely stopped since, so yes, quite a bit
;) At times I get a bit frustrated by uninteresting metas so just do my dailes a couple of times a week (like RIGHT NOW given that token druids are completely broken and that's at least 6 or 7 out of ten games in ranked you see that deck ) but otherwise play quite regularly.

The current expansion has some crazy good stuff, so look into that - otherwise, I really liked Un'Goro so focus on thsoe two, other than specific cards would be my suggestion.

I play a bit, but I get frustrated with it quite easily so never for too long at once.
