On the left of the screen are shown any currently unopened packs. Packs of the same kind are stacked together, with a label indicating how many packs remain. If the player has enough different types of packs waiting, a slider appears to scroll up and down the sideboard.
Players can pick up and drop a pack over the central area in order to open it. Following a short animation, the 5 cards from the pack will appear, displayed face down. Players can mouse over each card to see a coloured glow corresponding to the rarity of that card. Clicking on a card will turn it over, revealing it to the player. Higher rarity cards are revealed with a burst of colour and an enthusiastic announcement from the Innkeeper. For more information on opening packs and a gallery of images, see Card pack.
You can also open cards by tapping spacebar. If all 5 cards are open and you tap it once more, the next pack is opened.
Players can click on the icon in the bottom-left corner to directly access the Shop, or can return to the main menu via the 'Back' button in the bottom-right corner. Completing the opening process for the final pack will automatically cause the player to exit the Open Packs screen, and return to the main menu.
