    Hearthstone is an online collectible card game created by Blizzard and set in the Warcraft universe. It's gameplay mechanics are similar to Magic the Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers, but the interface is even more polished and refined. The game has been growing in popularity on the PC since its release, and Blizzard previously promised to bring the game to Android at some point.

    It looks like that time is coming soon. Blizzard just shared they plan to bring Hearthstone to Android tablets by the end of 2014. They are also working on a phone based version, but that isn't expected until sometime next year. Here's a quote with a few more of the details,

    Have you guys tried this game on the PC? Let us know if it is worth checking out on Android one it hits.

    I seriously hope so. It would be the game that would get me to buy a new Nexus tablet. Love hearthstone. Great fun for 10 minutes or an hour.

    Its not the kind of game that will suck away hours and hours of play. I'll play a few games and be done. Well, thats me at least but it is a fun game and with the WoW lore, its fun.

    I type this as I am playing WoW. Darn Blizz and their addictive games.
