One of the advantages of playing a card game on the computer is the little extras that can be added. Hearthstone currently features four unique game boards. In typical Blizzard fashion, clicking on the various unique doodads on each map yields fun and comedic results. Here are all the interactive objects I discovered.
Stranglethorn has that thick jungle vibe complete with overgrown ruins, voodoo magic, and wild animals.
The top left corner features a ruby eye and wild animal. The eye will fall out if click on enough times. If you click on the animal, it will let out a warning roar and hide in the bushes.
The ropes blocking the doorway can be sliced apart. The carving’s above the archway glow red, and tribal music and drums are played. You can click on the carving directly to see the eyes glow and hear the music again. Clicking on the coconuts in the top right will cause them to fall to the jungle floor.
If you examine the waterfall, you may notice a faint rainbow. Clicking on the waterfall will make it brighter with each click, until it is a nice, colorful rainbow clearly visible above the scene.
The little fire pit can be lit up with a few clicks. Clicking the tent’s entrance will prompt a little sound effect of a person snoring inside. The fun part is the tiger skin. It takes quite a few clicks, but you can eventually get it to change to a leopard skin. Continue clicking to transform it again into a zhevra (zebra) skin. Further clicking will change it back to the tiger skin to continue the cycle.
This is the capital of the Alliance complete with a cathedral, weapons shop, barracks, and gryphon roost.
Three glass panes can be broken if you are into vandalizing holy places. Clicking the roof does not cause any visible change, but the church bells will ring. Finally, you can toggle the street lamp on and off with a single click.
Click on the sign enough times to break one of the ropes holding it up. A loose roof tile can be broken off with a few clicks. The door can be toggled open and closed. The change to the ferns is hard to see, but a single click will cause them to wilt for a few seconds before returning to health.
You will hear what sound like footsteps if you click on the wooden roof of the barracks, but enough clicks will cause one of the planks to fall in. Likewise with one of the well’s bricks and the bucket. A few clicks send them to the bottom. The clock will make some “tick tock” sounds, but the clock’s time does not seem to change with clicks. My guess is that it is based on the current match’s duration or the computer time.
Quite a few things to interact with here. Clicking on the hay will splash some hay around before going back to the initial state. The crate and barrel can be destroyed with 4-6 clicks. The Stormwind banner will blow around with a click. The gryphon is the most interesting though. As shown in the second shot, he will follow the cursor with his head if you put it near him and eventually peck at the cursor. If you take it further and click on the gryphon, he will strike an angry pose directly at you the player.
The old orc catapult and goblin zeppelin are back in their starring roles for the Orgrimmar map, also an orc blacksmith and the Orgrimmar gates.
These ones are hard to see in screenshots. The little Thousand Needles rock can be knocked around a bit, but it never falls down. The zeppelin can be clicked on several times to cause it to spin a little bit and the goblin pilot to say a classic line.
It is hard to see how the Razorfen thorns change in the screenshot. A few clicks will send them reeling before they return to normal. The Ogrimmar gates can be clicked on repeatedly to slowly go down until they are fully closed.
Click on the blackmith’s chimney to hear him working and see the forge flames. The orc flag will sway more in the wind when you click it.
This is my favorite object in all of the boards. Pick up a rock from the pile. Then place it in the catapult’s launcher. Click the catapult arm to launch it into the distant. It will not destroy the zeppelin like the old Warcraft 2 cinematic, but you can hear a faint sound in the distance of it hitting the dirt or even smacking a goblin.
I do not know so much about this place since I stopped playing before it was added. It looks to have a pagoda, watermill, farm, and gong.
This is a fun one. The kite can be clicked on directly to cause it to sway a little more, but you can also click on the stake to break it loose. It will fly away off the screen. The Chinese lamp will move a little with clicks, but never falls off. The light inside the pagoda can be toggled on and off.
Not much to see here. You can click on the water wheel to make it spin a tiny bit faster. The door will open and close just like the the Stormwind weapons shop.
I only found two things to interact with here. If you click the gong enough times, it will ring loud and swing a great deal. The flowers on the bush can be picked off with a few clicks. They grow back quickly though.
Here is my second favorite object to click on. To start with there are 3 squash that can be, well, “squashed” with the cursor. Then you can click on the little water spout to water the ground, and more vegetables will grow! So far I have only seen a squash, carrot, or radish, shown in the far right screenshot. Each time you replenish the vegetables it will randomly pick one of those. You can get all 3 of the same type, all 3 a different type, and anything in between.
That is all I was able to find. Have you found any more?
