Well met! Pull up a chair by the hearth! Allow me to introduce your Innkeepers Mark Wilson and Devin Wilson. Hearthstone is a free-to-play online card game from Blizzard Entertainment Inc. After seeing a growing number of Fireside Gathering events in the Toronto area providing a social way to enjoy Hearthstone, We decided to organize events in our hometown of Kitchener-Waterloo area, Ontario, Canada for the benefit of players in the group of nearby cities of Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, and Guelph (a combined population of over half a million people!).

For a more authentic tavern feel, we have recently partnered with The Watchtower Restaurant in Waterloo. We have have also arranged permission to use some office space in the Tannery Building in downtown Kitchener which can accomodate larger groups. In keeping with the Hearthstone theme, we affectionately call our venue spaces The Mana & Mettle Tavern. Blizzard has created a Tavern Homepage for us on their Hearthstone website which lists our upcoming events!

The KW Fireside Gatherings are usually once a month, and have casual play, informal tournaments, trivia games, strategy discussion, viewing of North American and World Championships, or any other Hearthstone-related activities for fun.

Players are to bring their own Hearthstone-capable laptops, tablets, or phones to play with others. Lots of power outlets are available, and I usually have a spare laptop and/or tablet in case of equipment problems. WiFi access is free.



12Dec2018: Fireside Gathering Event

We welcome one and all to come out and have a great time with the December Fireside Brawl, unlocking the Nemsy Warlock hero portrait, completing Tavern Quests, trying your luck in the prize draws, and other rousing Hearthstone-related activities.

There will be handouts of the event activities and our Tavern Quest sheet. Please note: Your device (laptop, tablet, phone) must have location awareness enabled for Hearthstone to detect that you are present at the Mana and Mettle Tavern via cellular data plan or our free WiFi service in order to access the Fireside Brawl.

If you need to earn the Fireside Gathering cardback or just want to play casual games for fun, simply challenge someone in the Nearby Players list or the Fireside Players list if they aren't busy. We also have interesting little Tavern Quests you can work on to collect tokens which can be redeemed for a nice reward, and be sure to sign our Guest Log book!
