The beta of Blizzard's newest game, Hearthstone, is in full swing and people around the world are enjoying its addicting CCG nature. The game itself is fun and fast to learn, but like all of Blizzard's games it has a lot of depth to it. There's a ton of different decks you can make, and it doesn't really cost a lot to get a good deck together. The basic decks that you'll get are themselves pretty well put together -- there's no big holes or anything else that'll stop you from picking it up and playing.
But say you wanted a legendary card (or six). Or say that you wanted to be able to go toe-to-toe with pros from other long standing card games like Magic the Gathering. The way to do that is to start dropping money on it. But dropping the money while the game is in the beta?
Yup. That's what I've done. $150 into the virtual pockets of Blizzard to have just a little bit of an edge while testing out their latest creation.
