Blizzard Entertainment is the king of taking a good idea and making it better. Recently they tried their take on a collectible card game set in their Warcraft Universe with Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. The game is simple taking out a lot of the more complicated concepts that games like Magic: The Gathering have yet it still manages to be plenty deep and extremely engaging.
