To celebrate the Feast of Winter Veil, Blizzard launched a special Gift Exchange Tavern Brawl in December of 2015. Many assumed it would return this past holiday season but the brawl was nowhere to be found. Blizzard promptly explained that it would be delayed into 2017 due to some kind of issue on its end. However, the studio has announced a date for its return.
Starting February 1 and continuing through the normal Tavern Brawl schedule, players will be able to earn the Winter Veil Wreath card back for a limited time. This festive back is only available one week per year and those who have already unlocked it will instead be treated with the usual Classic pack that comes with winning a single match.
The full announcement is below.
The Gift Exchange Tavern Brawl Returns!
The weather outside is frightful, but this card back is so delightful. The Gift Exchange Tavern Brawl is back, giving you the opportunity to add the fanciful Winter Veil Wreath card back to your collection starting February 1.
All you have to do is win one match in the Gift Exchange Tavern Brawl, and the card back will automatically be gifted to you. Already an owner of the Winter Veil Wreath card back from last year’s festivities? Winning a game in the Gift Exchange Tavern Brawl will reward you with a Classic card pack instead!
The Gift Exchange Tavern Brawl is only available for one regular Tavern Brawl week, so unwrap some fun in Hearthstone for you (and your opponent) soon!
