A less friendly chess game is this week’s Hearthstone Tavern Brawl

This week in the Tavern, you’ll take a break from investigating the death of Sire Denathrius to play A Less Friendly Chess Game

Whether you need a scale break, standard or sensitive Foyer in general, look no further. A less friendly game of chess turns Foyer in a chess-inspired showdown, all set in the home of the most powerful mage in Azeroth’s history, Medivh.

This week on the Magic Chessboard of Medivh, people are allowed to cheat. For this Brawl, you’ll start by putting together a deck of six unique cards, all of which will 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.

When selecting your six cards, you will first need to select a class. Although you can use most cards of your selected class, as well as neutral cards, there are some prohibitions. Don’t expect to be able to swing the deck with someone like Lord Jaraxxus or any other Hero card.

Once you’ve chosen your six sneaky cards, it’s time to do battle. In addition to the six cards you chose to keep under the table, your deck will consist of chess pieces. You will play white or black, like chess. Your cards will be stuff like White Knight, White Bishop, White Pawn, Black Knight, Black Pawn, and more.

Each chess piece has its own unique ability. You can also spend two mana to use a heroic power, which will allow you to discover a chess piece. In this Brawl, positioning is important, so think of this one as a real game of chess.

Winning this Brawl for the first time will grant you a free Standard map pack. You can face a less friendly game of chess all week.
