Hearthstone offers a wide variety of ways to play, whether you want to prove your prowess in ranked matches, test your chops as a deck builder in the Arena, take on crafty A.I. opponents in the Curse of Naxxramas Adventure (sold separately), or challenge your friends to a duel.
Hearthstone players on Android tablets have access to all of the exciting features and content available in the Windows, Mac, and iPad® versions of the game—including the recently released first expansion, Goblins vs Gnomes™, which adds more than 120 new cards and an all-new type of minon, Mechs.
