Basically both are playing heroic mode, but with only 10 hp.
If you did this in heroic mode and your opponent not, that's it.
I love this Tavern Brawl! Very different and original...kind of makes me wish they had added more chess cards to the actual game than Onyx Bishop and Ivory Knight. I guess there is a Protect the King too, but not really a chess piece.I was able to win 5 games some as Black king and some as White king.The heroic took me 1 try to beat it. En Passant!
When I played this in Karazhan I knew they would make a brawl of it
Enough people demanded it, i guess. It is unique, yes, but beating it on heroic became a chore after the 20th-something try. Lets see how it fares with an actual opponent, who doesn't constantly .
Awesome! I feel like we had more health in Heroic mode though - 10 seems a bit low to tank using the face in the early game.Also, if player 2 gets the coin, that's a massive advantage, I think.
Honestly this tavern brawl is so skewed in favour of the White King as he always starts first, it's not even funny. I tried to win as the Black King, but unless the White King misplays like all hells, then there is no way the Black King CAN win. The White King gets the Knight out faster, the Queen out faster and just generally lowers you to 4 or less HP before you can do anything to them. The coin is not compensation enough for the White King being able to swarm you by turn 3 and there's NOTHING you can do about it, as the pieces give out too little dmg to have an impact and losing board means auto-concede.
I won more times as Black King, actually. The fact that you start with one more card in hand, and that you can put out a rook or knight faster (with the coin), makes for some interesting plays. However, I agree that the outcome depends a lot on whether your opponents know what they're doing, and many seem to have no clue.
If you're black, you really need to mulligan for pawns. You'll pretty much always win if you can get 4 pawns into Rook/Bishop on turn 3.
Won as white while I go face before the opponent realises that he has only 10 HP.
