Hearthstone Beta Key Giveaway Announcement

Hearthstone Beta Key Giveaways Start Tonight!

Hearthstone Closed Beta Invitation
Giving Away a Free Hearthstone Closed Beta Key

Want To Win a Free Hearthstone Closed Beta Key Invitation?

I've been playing in the Hearthstone Beta since the first week, but I've been lucky enough to have been given a couple of extra Hearthstone Beta Key invitations.  I will be giving both of these beta keys away.  The first Hearthstone Beta Key will be awarded via a Scavenger Hunt / Puzzle / Trivia / Egg Hunt contest that will be released later tonight.  I want to give everyone a heads up to look for the post tonight as the Beta key will be obtainable after solving tonight's puzzle.  Each bit of tonight's puzzle will award parts of the code within the Beta key and when all parts are solved, you will have a working Hearthstone Beta key.

Why have a puzzle instead of just giving the Hearthstone beta key away?


  1. I would prefer the HS beta key to go to a follower or fan of the site, as opposed to some random person who is only here for a free key.
  2. The puzzle puts the key code out in the open and removes the option of selling the key.  First one to solve the puzzle and add the code to their Battlenet account gets the key.  If you solve it, but don't add the code, the code will be added by someone else who solves the puzzle before you can sell it off.
  3. There is no way to create and spam fake emails or fake accounts just to get extra entries into a giveaway contest.
  4. A puzzle will be a lot more fun and feel more rewarding that a random drawing.


First person to solve tonight's puzzle and enter the beta key code is the winner.

Most clues and answers can be found within this site or the sites and projects I am affiliated with.  A true fan already knows these sites and has a distinct advantage, but everyone has access to the answers and solutions starting from within this site at Cold's Gold Factory.

The puzzle will release tonight at 9 pm Eastern time.

I true fan already follows this blog and will have access to hints that I will be providing.
Hints about the puzzle solutions may be released from any of these accounts:



What about the other Hearthstone Beta Key.  When Is That Giveaway?

Yeah.  I did say that I have 2 Hearthstone Beta Key Codes to give away. A true fan will hear about that Hearthstone Beta Key Giveaway and the instructions to enter.  That key will be given away on Halloween.  Follow the Twitter account, Facebook Page, and Newsletter so that you have a chance to hear about the next Giveaway.

  2. Good idea to do this as a puzzle, at least it's different from all the other giveaways :)
