Hearthstone: How to Win the Card Back

Every month, Hearthstone players have an opportunity to earn a new card back for their collection. My best guess is that the majority of players are much more interested in racing to the top of the ladder than whatever the current card back is.

Not me. The only reason I participate in Ranked Play is to earn the card back. In this blog, I share what I learned about how to earn the card back every month without getting frustrated and no matter what cards you have or your skill level.

Hearthstone: Year of the Raven Celebration

Hearthstone had a Year of the Raven Celebration shortly before the Year of the Mammoth ended. The upcoming new expansion is called The Witchwood.

For a limited time (March 26, 2018 – April 9 – 2018) players received a free Card Pack every time they completed a Daily Quest in Hearthstone. This motivated me to work on Daily Quests.

Hearthstone: Opening 16 Card Packs While Streaming

The best thing about Hearthstone, in my opinion, is the wonderful artwork that is on the cards.  I play Hearthstone very casually, and tend to forget when I’ve received a free pack of Hearthstone cards.

Just for fun, I decided to open up the 16 card packs that I’d accumulated all in a row.  The result was a short, yet interesting, Twitch video.

Hearthstone: Kobolds & Catacombs – Defeat 5 Dungeon Run Bosses

Kobolds & Catacombs is a Hearthstone solo player expansion.  When the expansion was launched, it offered players the opportunity to do a Dungeon Run.  Players started with a quest called Begin a Dungeon Run.

After players completed the first quest, a new one appeared.  To complete it, players needed to “Defeat 5 Dungeon Run Bosses.”

Hearthstone: Kobolds & Catacombs – Begin a Dungeon Run Quest

Kobolds & Catacombs is a Hearthstone expansion.  Like the previous expansions, it was designed for solo players.  Kobolds & Catacombs went live on December 7, 2017 (in the Americas Region), and December 8, 2017 (in the Asia Region and the Europe Region).

A free Dungeon Run started the moment the expansion was launched.  The Dungeon Run was only meant to last for a limited time, and ended on January 15, 2017 (in the Americas). I was unable to complete the entire Dungeon Run, but still found it to be fun.  I hope they bring it back sometime.

Hearthstone: Curse of Naxxramas – Instructor Razuvious

Curse of Naxxramas was the first Hearthstone solo content expansion.  I am slowly working my way through it.  When it was first released, players could unlock different wings with either gold or real world currency.  I chose to spend gold.

Instructor Razuvious is the first boss in the Military Quarter of Naxxramas.  My first attempt to beat him ended in failure.  The screenshots in this blog were taken on November 12, 2016.

Hearthstone: Card Backs

There was a time when I regularly put effort into earning a card back in Hearthstone. When I started trying to collect card backs, I was having fun with the experience.  Eventually, things stopped being fun.  The game got frustrating and I lost interest in trying to earn card backs.

Once in a while, I return to Hearthstone and attempt to earn another card back.

The best thing about the card backs is the awesome artwork.  This blog features all of the card backs that I have earned.

Hearthstone: On My iPad

I have an iPad mini that I use to play video games.  It didn’t occur to me until March 30, 2017, that I could put Hearthstone on my iPad mini.  Previous to this realization, all of my Hearthstone experience happened on my Mac computer.

I learned that the Hearthstone app syncs with the Hearthstone game that I play on my computer. The best part of playing on an iPad is the way it feels.  I mean, Hearthstone is a card game, so it makes sense to use your fingers to move cards around and fling cards on the virtual table.

Hearthstone: Fight Promoter Card

On May 20, 2017, Hearthstone offered a free card to everyone who logged into the game.  All players had to do was log in.  There was no catch.  Players didn’t have to do anything at all – other than log in on the right day.  If you have found this blog after that date – you are too late to get the free Fight Promoter Card.

I find it somewhat amusing that some commenters on the Hearthstone post about the free card felt the need to create a conspiracy theory about it. In short, some believe that this free card was a test to see if giving away free stuff was enough of an incentive to make players log into Hearthstone. As conspiracy theories go… this one seems harmless.

Hearthstone: Curse of Naxxramas – Loatheb

Curse of Naxxramas was the first Hearthstone solo content expansion. I’m still working my way through it. When it was first released, players could unlock the different wings with either gold or real world currency. I chose gold.

The third boss in the Plague Quarter of Naxxramas is Loatheb. Before players can fight Loatheb, they have to beat the previous two bosses in the Plague Quarter: Noth the Plaguebringer and Heigan the Unclean.

It took me two tries to defeat Loatheb. The screenshots you see in this blog were taken on November 9, 2015.
