Breakfast Topic: Will you play Hearthstone on your phone?

I seem to be in the minority amongst Hearthstone players, because I have no interest in playing Hearthstone on my phone. When it was released yesterday, I downloaded it with everyone else to give it a chance, but it only confirmed my initial suspicion: that Hearthstone just doesn’t work well in such a confined screen space. The tiny screen seemed claustrophobic and dragging cards around on it seemed awkward. I played through three matches mostly thinking about how much I’d rather be playing on my tablet — and though I haven’t deleted the app yet, it’s going to be the first thing to go if I run short on storage space.

Sure, Hearthstone is more portable on a phone than a tablet, but I have trouble seeing how that’s worth the downside of fitting the game onto a tiny smartphone screen. But like I said: from the Hearthstone players I’ve talked to, it seems like I’m in the minority, while most players are excited to get their Hearthstone fix on the go. So tell me, players, are you going to be playing Hearthstone from your phone?
