Hearthstone goes faster when every minion has charge and taunt

In the language of Hearthstone, Blizzard's digital card game, "charge" means that a minion can attack during the same turn it's put in play. "Taunt" means that a minion must be attacked and removed before the hero character can be attacked. So what happens when you put both charge and taunt on every minion in the game?

We find out in this week's Tavern Brawl. It's a sort of reverse of last week's Tavern Brawl, where the heroes themselves were given taunt. We're having a lot of fun seeing Hearthstone's developers play around with these basic tags that have been around since the game launched, and it shows how much creativity there is left to be wrung from this weekly mode.

Watch our video of this week's Tavern Brawl above, and check out the rest of our many Hearthstone videos on our full YouTube playlist.
