This week at The Tavern, you’ll take a break from investigating the death of Sir Denethrius to play a less friendly game of chess.
The Most Powerful Mage in Azeroth’s History
If you need a break from the ladder, standard, or sensible hearth in general, look no further. A less friendly game of chess turns Hearthstone into a chess-inspired showdown. It all takes place at the home of Mediv, the most powerful mage in Azeroth’s history.
Mediv’s magic chessboard
People are allowed to cheat this week on Mediv’s magic chessboard. For this brawl, you’ll start by making a deck of six unique cards. All of which would theoretically be hidden under the table. At some point in the match, you will be able to use these cards to swing the match in your favor.
Use of most cards for neutral cards
When choosing your six cards, you must first select a square. Although you will be able to use most cards for your selected class as well as neutral cards, there are some restrictions. Don’t expect to be able to swing the game with someone like Lord Xerxes or any other hero card. You can play a less friendly game of chess all week.
will play in white or black, just like chess
Once you’ve chosen your six sneaky cards, it’s brawl time. In addition to the six cards you choose to place under the table, your deck will be made up of chess pieces. You will play in white or black, just like in chess. Your cards will have White Knight, White Bishop, White Pawn, Black Knight, Black Pawn, and more.
Each chess piece has its own unique ability
Each chess piece has its own unique ability. You will also be able to spend two mana to use Hero Power. Which will allow you to search for a chess piece. In this dispute, positioning is important, so think of it as you would in a real game of chess. Winning this fight for the first time will get you a free standard card pack.
