[Game] Card Treasure Hunt (Hearthstone Riddles)

    Welcome to the modern thread of The Card Treasure Hunt. This is a game where you try to guess which Hearthstone card fits the current riddle. When it is solved the winner then comes up with the next one. Feel free to employ poetry, simple questions, modified song lyrics, or anything else your imagination desires.

     

    If you have seen this thread and have always wanted to play I invite you to try- it's a fun distraction to check your phone and look the riddle over. Think it through while you're doing something boring like work or waiting in line : D

     

    There are not many rules aside from not making too many guesses at a time (two at a time is the polite limit). Asking questions to the riddle is advisable if stumped. If it is your turn to make a riddle it is asked that you check in at least a couple times a day to verify guesses; if you are not able to you are allowed to concede the next riddle to the public.

     

    Besides the leader board below, I also compile the winners of every month. Think of it as Standard for the game. Stick around and try to be the winner for the month!

     

    Very appropriately, the reigning champion of the leader board, anchorm4n will start us off! Special thanks to R and madcat for helping tally and make it simple to transfer the leader board as well as to DestroyerR for resurrecting such an enjoyable game at OoC.

    Looks like we have another tie in just the three times the monthlies have been in effect. When this occurs, the winner is decided by the first to solve a riddle when all who are tied are able.

     

    *** Having a little trouble getting this to display as I'd like on my phone. Namely having the table display without needing to scroll. Any help appreciated ***

    Thanks for creating the new thread and bearing the burden of keeping the leaderboard up to date, Live4vrRdieTryn! 

    Let's get this on! Shouldn't be too hard, just a little warm up ;-) 

    I am old, I am wise

    I will curse you thrice

    I am new, I am inspired

    I will get you fired 

    I notice I am confused. Something I believe isn't true. How do I know what I think I know?

    Well, that was quick :) thanks.

    Here is my riddle;

    Although I'm unique, I have three sisters;

    One is non-collectible, I am the one, cheapest.

    One can think that I am weak, but I am flexible,

    Purify your way to win or new toy for your table.

    I think we're going to need a hint on that one, it's a bit vague

    Oh, I didn't think it was a hard one. I just thought that everyone is busy with openning packs and experiencing new expansion.

    So here it is, There are three cards that has the same word on its name.

    No, well another tip then i will give the answer. It passed so much time for one riddle.

    All of them are cards from same class, 2 are collectibles, one is not, You are looking for a collectible one.

    Searching by the name is waste of time. It's easier to find one of the cards and then look for others, but I can't find any of them. Not enough info about the first two. The third, which is "Purify your way to win or new toy for your table", does it deal damage and / or summon a minion?

The third, which is "Purify your way to win or new toy for your table", does it deal damage and / or summon a minion? Recently, I thought that it's a Bomb Toss, Ring Toss and Barrel Toss.

    Yeah it is waste of time because there are more than 3 cards that has the same word on the card name but those extras can't be a "sister".

     

    It is time to give the answer i guess;

     

    Although I'm unique, I have three sisters;   - It is unique because there was no "Shard" cards in Hearthstone before and there are 3 shards in latest expansion. This line gives 2 hints that "This is a card from latest expansion." and "There are 3 cards with same theme."

    One is non-collectible, I am the one, cheapest.  - This line also gives 2 hints, one of them is Purified Shard which is non-collectible and 2nd hint is that The card you should look for has the lowest mana cost which is Shard of the Naaru. 3rd sister would be Void Shard.

    One can think that I am weak, but I am flexible,  - You could think that Shard of the Naaru is weak because it is a tech card that it can be useless in some match-ups like against No-minion Mage for example, but it is flexible because it has Tradeable keyword which makes it flexible like Choose One cards.

    Purify your way to win or new toy for your table.  - Purify gives the hint of "Silencing all enemy minions" to open your way to win by going face, and The new toy of your table is a new card that you can draw with Tradeable. Since both mechanic costs one mana it is like a choose one card. So the "or" there refers to "one or another" not 2 mehcanics at the same time.

     

    So the card was Shard of the Naaru.

    Anyone can be next since there is no winner i guess.

    Why did you do that :0 I just asked "is it deal damage and / or summon a minion?" I thought about Silence, but this "new toy"...

    Well, the problem is not in the riddle, but in the activity.

    No worries, but it's pretty normal how a riddle can take even a week to solve. There's been times I've had to give like 8 clues and ppl still don't get it. Good riddle anyway.

     

    My Name is Misleading

    Because You Never Feared Me at All

    At Least I'm Never Beaten

    And a Little Easier to Call
