The Blue Recluse Brawl 2016

A few weeks ago, Thom came up with an idea to have a small Hearthstone tournament when Marty, Dennis and Jesse came to visit him in Northern Ireland for the New Years festivities. Amanda was also invited to join in (Thom’s Girlfriend), Jesse was assigned as the judge and thus, the first ever The Blue Recluse Brawl was born!

Rules

Each competitor had to make up 3 rules for the tournament.

Battleground Rules

These were random rules created by Jesse that were determined by a roll of a dice before every match. Some proved more fatal than others.

How did it all go down? You can find out here:
