Hearthstone Gift Guide

So you are looking for a gift for someone who you knows loves to play hearthstone, but you are unsure how? With amazon, it is now a whole lot easier!

To celebrate hearthstone’s launch on android (and also amazon app store), Amazon has managed a tie up with blizzard using Amazon coins to purchase hearthstone in app purchases.

You will finally be able to get the Hearthstone player a present for the game!

If you are intending to gift a present, be it for Birthdays or for Christmas and other events, one way would be to buy Amazon Gift Cards as a present for them so they can purchase Amazon Coins for the Hearthstone deals using the steps here or here or this page itself!


(Using current promotion, note that this can change)

1) Using the gift card to buy Amazon Coins
E.g. a $70 Gift Card will be able to buy 10000 coins in the current promotion at time of writing

2) Use the 10000 coins to buy Hearthstone packs in the Amazon App Store Hearthstone App, you will then get a coinback of 1000

3) You can then use the coinback of 1000 to buy more packs!

The best part about amazon gift cards is that they are sent almost instantly and there is no need to wait for shipping at all. This allows you to gift those last minute presents effectively, especially for say Christmas when all the deliveries are overloaded.

It used to be an incredible promotion where you can get 144 packs for just $80, but they have since reduced the 20% off coins and 50% coin back to 30% off coins and 10% coinback. While it is by no means a bad deal, you can now only get about 87 packs for $70. Those who acted fast really managed to get an incredible deal! Maybe Amazon will change their mind and revert back to the old promotion.

But those are all pre-orders so if you’re thinking of something to get for Christmas, then you will have to get something else! The starcraft themed razer peripherals are still pretty popular, from the messenger bag to the banshee headphones. If you’re looking for some ideas, you can take a look at my Starcraft II gift guide here!

Zerg Rush Google

Google has a new easter egg and it is starcraft themed!

Head over to your search bar or google and type in zerg rush

“zerg rush”

you will soon see zerglings (actually google Os) rushing in to eat up the elements on the screen

you have to fend them off by rapidly clicking on them

and finally when you are slowly overwhelmed by the hoard of infinite Os you can take a break and look at your APM and O count!

They then form a giant GG at the end.

Have fun!

Razer Gaming IPO?

Razer is probably a rather familiar name with Starcraft 2 fans, partly because that name shows up on the jerseys of the famous SlayerS team and partly because of their high performance (and rather expensive) gaming gear.


If there is a listing, the article points towards Hong Kong, Singapore or the USA as potential listing sites.

The date for the IPO has not been set however, according the the news report.

According to the news article, Razer is has its HQ in California, has offices in San Francisco but operates too out of places in Asia from Singapore, Seoul and Shanghai as well as a few more.

And they have recently gone into the laptop scene, creating their own Razer blade gaming laptop that has already been sold. Their 17 inch $2800 laptop apparently sold out in just 30 minutes.

It looks like Razer is indeed doing rather well now. Perhaps they will be the next apple computers, but of the gaming industry.
