KW Fireside Gathering #11Thanks to all that came out for our eleventh Fireside Gathering despite the road construction, and a very warm welcome to all newcomers! There were about 16 people in attendance which is great, but of course more are always welcome! A special thanks to my volunteer assistants for their generous help to make our Fireside Gatherings run smoothly.
We introduced a new logo to go along with the name of our Hearthstone tavern: The Mana & Mettle Tavern, and provided a sheet listing 9 Tavern Quests with fun tavern-related activities to do. Samples of the Tavern Quest tokens were shown and will be available to collect at the next Fireside Gatherings. See you there!
Prizes for Arena Challenge
For this event, everyone did Arena battles to see who could make the highest Arena Level within a 2 hour period. The top place winner was Nick with level 7 achieved, and second-place was a tie between Level 9001 and Basil both with Arena Level 6 reached. Thanks to all who participated in this fun activity!
The Mana and Mettle Tavern welcomes one and all to a themed launch event for the recently released One Night in Karazhan adventure! We will be introducing our new Tavern Quest activities in addition to the streamers, disco ball, and music. Blizzard was very gracious to send a box of party favor goodies to give away via random drawing. Come sign the Tavern Log book or have fun with the novelty oversize Hearthstone cardboard cutout where you can write you own card text! Meet new players and have a great time! See you there!
We are limiting the age of attendees to 15+, however all persons under the age of 18 are expected to act in a mature manner and MUST have the legal document provided below signed by their parent/guardian which covers all events. Printed copies will also be available at the Fireside Gathering, but are still required to be filled out and signed.
Release and Agreement for Minors
We have prepared a handout sheet for each of the 3 groups of people as guidelines: a new player sheet, a casual play sheet, and a competitive bracket sheet. Printed copies will also be available at the Fireside Gathering.

Prizes for Arena Challenge
A prize will be awarded to the bracket winners, who will be able to pick from some official Blizzard Hearthstone merchandise we have purchased. In the future we will likely add Hearthstone t-shirts and other items. Prize choices are currently a $10-$15 value: a Blizzard hat, two large mousepads, an Arena Key bottle opener, wallet with free card pack code, large plush pillow, one glass from the WoW Brewfest Pint Glass collection, or necklace with pendant. As the gatherings grow in size, or if people want to pay a competition entry fee, we can offer larger prizes.
Remember to bring your friends! All are welcome at the events whether a brand new beginner or a seasoned player!
