Hearthstone First Beta

Hearthstone: Picking Your First Class

Open beta is here! Everyone in the world can play Hearthstone now, and we’re eager to help the new players have fun and find the perfect class for them in game.

My wife — who is not a gamer — joins me on this week’s show to talk about Hearthstone from the perspective of someone not very familiar with card games or video games. Longtime listeners will remember Jenna from the second episode of the show, back in April of last year.

We talk about what veteran players can do to help their non-gaming friends jump into Hearthstone with them, and take a trip down memory lane to discuss old versions of cards as we figure out what class is right for Jenna.

We hope this show gives you some tips for how to introduce your own family and friends into Hearthstone, no matter how few games they’ve played before!
