Unboxing & Review & Giveaway: Hearthstone Scholomance Academy Mystery Box

Video Editor has received a special package from Scholomance Academy to celebrate Hearthstone's latest expansion. Let's see what's inside and learn how you can score one of your own.


Over the last week, Video Editor Greg Burke received a mysterious package. He's used to getting a lot of mail for unboxings and reviews, but there was something different about this one. This was noticeably bigger than normal and was sent over by the team at Blizzard Entertainment, as well as by Headmaster Kel'thuzad. Judging by the exterior, it was something to celebrate Hearthstone's recently-released Scholomance Academy expansion. So Greg got right to unboxing its contents.

On the surface, it's a giant book! But there's more to this Scholomance Academy package than meets the eye. First, there's a sealed letter from the team at Blizzard. There's also a leatherbound journal, custom Vans with the Scholomance Academy logo, and an actual wizard's robe. It's an Ugg robe, no less, so you're looking at some high quality here.

And that's the package. Please don't hold Greg's pronunciation of "Scholomance" against him. And honestly, all of this stuff is really cool for him. But how would you, the reader, like to also have one of these packages for yourself?

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
