Southern New Hampshire University’s (SNHU) Gaming Club is a hub for gamers to mingle and play games with others.
On Mar. 5 Gaming Club hosted a Hearthstone Tournament, where students were able to bring their decks and challenge each other in Blizzard Entertainment’s “Warcraft” themed digital card game.
The tournament followed the “conquest” guidelines, allowing three decks per player in a best of five series. In order for a player to progress, each of the three decks would have to win one match. Winning allowed competitors to progress through the bracket, while losing moved players to the Loser’s Bracket, where they could try to work their way back into the ranks.
Losing while in that bracket resulted in permanent elimination from the tournament.
Hearthstone is a digital card game where two players face off in a battle of strategy, minions, and spells as they fight to see who can lower the other player’s health points to zero. There are nine different classes, and more than 700 cards for players to choose from to build themed, well organized decks.
The tournament lasted for three hours, with Pizza 911 and soda provided for participants and spectators alike.
The Hearthstone tournament was one of many events where Gaming Club allowed for gamers of all kinds to come together.
With meetings once a week in the Corcoran Conference Room in the Student Center on Saturdays from 12-3, the club is always looking for new or interested members.
