Hearthstone's 10th Anniversary: A Whizbang Workshop of Nostalgia and Fun


Hearthstone, the beloved digital card game, is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a bang! Blizzard has exciting plans for the milestone, including in-game events, a new expansion called Whizbang's Workshop, and a nostalgic journey into the game's history. Let's dive into the details and get ready for a whimsical celebration!

1: A Trip Down Memory Lane

To kick things off, Hearthstone players can log in now and claim a special Harth Stonebrew card, the game's lovable innkeeper mascot. Playing Harth replaces your hand with eight cards from memorable moments in Hearthstone's meta, including the infamous Grim Patron combo. But that's not all! You'll also receive 11 gift cards, each representing a class, which allows you to discover one of their iconic spells. It's like reliving the greatest hits of Hearthstone!

2: Golden Rewards and Legendary Quests

From February 27 to March 19, you can embark on a free rewards track and earn golden versions of all the gifts, along with a shiny Birthday coin. And on March 11, the exact date of Hearthstone's anniversary, you can undertake a Legendary quest to earn a 10-Year Anniversary card back, showcasing your commitment and love for the game. To amplify the celebration, Hearthstone: Music from the Tavern (Anniversary Picks) will be available on music services, and Twitch Drops will give you goodies for watching Hearthstone streamers.

3: Twist Mode Time Travel

Prepare for a mind-bending experience as the Twist mode takes you on a whirlwind tour through Hearthstone history. Starting on March 1, you'll play with legacy decks, immersing yourself in the early days of the game. Each subsequent day, a new expansion will be added, from Curse of Naxxramas to Goblins vs. Gnomes and beyond. It's a time-traveling adventure that lets you relive the evolution of Hearthstone's card pool and strategies.

4: Whizbang's Workshop Unveiled

The Whizbang's Workshop expansion, launching on March 19, introduces a host of whizbang new mechanics and delightful throwbacks. Among these is the new keyword, Miniaturize, which grants you a 1-Mana 1/1 "Mini" copy of any card with the keyword. This allows you to double up on effects with budget-friendly bonuses. The expansion also pays homage to Hearthstone's past with references to classic cards and mechanics, like the nostalgic Spellstones. One standout card is the Zilliax Deluxe 3000, which lets you customize your own Zilliax in the deckbuilder by using modules and even choose a cosmetic skin for it. It's Zilliax, your way!

5: Colifero the Artist and Pre-Purchases

To get the Whizbang festivities started early, logging in now will reward you with Colifero the Artist. These new "artist" cards have special effects when you draw a card—get it? Draw? Colifero draws a card and then transforms all your in-play minions into copies of it. It's a creative twist that adds a touch of artistic chaos to your gameplay. Additionally, Whizbang's Workshop pre-purchases are available in two tiers, both of which grant you two copies of Corridor Sleeper, a card from the upcoming expansion that you can use right away.


As Hearthstone celebrates its 10th anniversary, it's time to embrace the nostalgia, revel in the festivities, and dive into the Whizbang's Workshop expansion. With a treasure trove of memorable cards, new mechanics, and nods to the game's history, this anniversary extravaganza promises laughter, surprises, and a whole lot of fun. So, grab your cards, join the party, and let the Whizbang Workshop transport you to a world of whimsical adventures in the Year of the Pegasus! Happy anniversary, Hearthstone!
