We saw a lot of things this year--the meta changed dozens of times, Hearthstone continued to grow as an esport, and we all recently got acquainted to losing games because of the fabulous Reno Jackson.

Perhaps most importantly, however, is the introduction of Winter Veil to Hearthstone. Since Great-father Winter and his friends arrived to the game, we decided what's a better way to show our appreciation for the introduction of holidays to Hearthstone than a huge giveaway! For the remainder of the year, we're giving away Battle.net codes and a brand new iPad Air 2 to participants in our first ever Hearthhead scavenger hunt.

Have a happy new year and remember to stay warm this holiday season. And as usual, may the odds be ever in your favor--both for this contest and out in the ladder, especially if you want Alienware Area-51 Gaming Desktop of your own for the new year!
Note: This contest has ended.

How to Win

Great-father Winter needs our help! In his rush to bring Winter Veil to Hearthstone, he lost all of his candy canes--they're hidden all over our database and you'll have to find them before holidays are over. We'll provide you the clues, but you'll have to do the rest of the sleuthing on your own.

For every clue you answer by visiting its respective database entry, you'll get entered into the contest through unlocking a special holiday Hearthhead achievement. The achievement can be earned up to ten times meaning you have ten chances to win.

Participating is as easy as reading the riddles and going on a hunt through Hearthhead's database while logged in. Use your own resources and get creative while looking for the answers; try searching for various keywords found in the clues and remember that Google is always your friend.

And if you get stuck, don't despair--some of them are hard while some are easy, so everyone should be able to get at least one entry into this contest!

Here are the ten clues for the ten presents:
  1. One of the worst feelings is when your Piloted Shredder gives you this guy if you have any spells in your hand. How fitting then is it that, according to the flavor text, he rides on as well!
  2. This daily quest can be completed anywhere--even against friends and practice mode. The 100 gold it gives makes it a welcome addition to any player's quest log.
  3. This guy isn't really that annoying, he's probably just misunderstood. All he wants to do is hang out with the other mechs!
  4. Maybe someday they'll make a more stable version of this card. But hey, RNG is fun sometimes, right?
  5. This card is probably one of the most popular cards in the game. It's probably not because of his personality, though--his name is a parody on one of Marvel's villains and he is a pretty evil 7 mana drop that can easily secure a win.
  6. Maybe Grim Patron's line should be changed to "everybody get out of here" after this card's changes virtually removed him from the meta by making him unable to be played with charge for an overwhelming combo. Don't worry, we're sure they'll come back to torment us.
  7. If you're a fan of legendaries, this legendary might be right up your alley: summoning a legendary whenever you use your hero power? Sign me up.
  8. Let them eat cake if they don't like this card back that came out last April.
  9. This card isn't a huge deal or anything, but its golden animation is epic: it opens its mouth to show a gnome it devoured whole. What a beast.
  10. The League of Explorers had some innovative boss battles, like this one where players were forced to run from Troggs in a Mine Shaft.
Solve these ten clues to receive ten entries and ten chances to win the contest!

If you get stuck on a number you can always ask your friends, Google, or even your guildmates. You can also read the comments here at Hearthhead and see if anyone has added another tip! Just make sure you don't post the exact answers here on Hearthhead or you'll be disqualified and temporarily banned until the hunt is over.
