This paper examines Hearthstone in depth, asking, “What is the nature of Hearthstone expertise, and if it is a game system recruiting expertise, what kind of an expertise is it?” Consistent with the Well Played series more generally it seeks to unpack and communicate the experience of playing and learning Hearthstone, with a particular emphasis on the interplay among mastery of the game as a system, understanding how expertise forms, and the dynamic interplay among strategies. In addition to suggesting how such cognitive activity operates in Hearthstone, it seeks to document the ever-evolving ecology of cognitive resources that support play.
