Earlier on PlayHearthstone's Twitch channel, the rest of the Mean Streets of Gadgetzan cards were revealed. They also confirmed that the release date for the set will be December 1.

Frodan teamed up with Matt Place to play a series of show matches to reveal the new cards. The decks played where we could see the players' hand were: Grimy Goons Warrior, Reno Mage, Jade Golem Druid, and Reno Warlock.

The two things that stood out the most during the games, were that Grimy Goons decisions about whether to buff a Minion or to play your cards out look complex, and that Jade Golems look really powerful if you can stretch the game out long enough.

Things we learned:

The card symbol for each gang changes colour depending on which class is playing the card.

When Grimy Goons effects buff a card in hand, the opponent can see the which card is buffed.

The Spell generated with Kazakus can't produce the same effect twice.

The cards are available to view on Hearthstone's official facebook page. The VoD of the event is available here.

I'm really glad they didn't stretch this out. They said "early December" and it's hard to be earlier than the first day! With so many releases left I was worried we would be stuck a couple weeks still.

Druid Jade Golem looks really strong .. I'm wondering if like Hex/ Poly/ Tink/ Entomb stop C'thun from respawning via Doomcaller, will similar effects reset the Jade Golem mechanic .. 

Also entombing a 9/9 Jade Golem will it give a 9/9 or a 1/1?

In my mind, this shows that they have lots more planned for the future and so they are able to release things in a proper, timely fashion. Really glad to see it happening.

I would assume it works as entombing C'Thun does.

I'm assuming you would get a 9/9. Unlike C'thun, which gains buffs, it looks like the jade golem generates a larger version each time with a new casting cost, not buffed

Exactly. The summoning phase is the one deciding how big will the Jade Golem be. Once it is a 6 mana 6/6, it will stay as a 6 mana 6/6. If it is returned by a Freezing Trap, it will be 8 mana 6/6.

So if a Jade Golem was destroyed/resummoned by a moat lurker, it would come back as the same size that was destroyed? or the next size larger?

From what I have read, the Jade Golem will come back in the size it left the board (when it was destroyed by Moat Lurker), except for buffs, of course.
So, if Moat Lurker destroys a 7/7 Jade Golem, the Golem should come back as a 7/7.

As far as I understand after you summon the first jade golem it automatically changes the card scripts of the jade golem cards to summon the next higher up golem, so unless Hex/Poly/ Tink over write that script I think its a scary mechanic ..

So many questions regarding the mechanics of this so unclear ..

I am very interested in one thing - should I shadowstep a jade golem, will playing him give +1\+1 to the next jade golem?

It seems likely that this will be the case.

From what I've seen, no.  Its not the jade golems themselves that ramp up the size, but the cards that create them.  

So Shadowstepping a 7/7 jade golem gives you a 7/7 jade golem card in hand with no bonus to your next one.  But play a Jade Spirit to get a 7/7 golem means the next card that creates a golem makes an 8/8 one. Shadowstep the Jade Spirit and the next time you play it gets you that 8/8.

Yep, pretty much this. 

The big mistake I made when looking into it pre-expansion was the same as others. I wasn't thinking in terms of cards, but minions instead!

      For the first time, we know exactly where and when the card reveals for the upcoming expansion will happen.
      The reveal season will start off with the livestream on November 20. Then, it's time for the fan sites and streamers to take over.
      The schedule for the reveals during November 21 to November 26 has been unveiled and you can check it out below. We will have a fast pace of 3 to 4 reveals per day!
      Blizzard Entertainment
      We’ve teamed up with the Hearthstone community to bring you a treasure trove of card reveals!
      Tricky traps and dangerous dungeon dwellers lurk behind every twist and turn of Hearthstone’s upcoming expansion. We’ve gathered a party of Hearthstone community members to bring to light all the lavish loot and malicious minions they’ve discovered while venturing deep into the catacombs.
      Check out the days and times below, and click the images to portal directly over to their channels. 
      Week of November 20 The schedule for Week 2 will be posted on Friday November 24 PST!
      (source)
      We will be following closely these card reveals. You should look out for them on our news forum and on our Kobolds & Catacombs hub.

      It looks like that, contrary to previous expansions, the Kobolds and Catacombs card reveals will start with a card reveal stream.
      We are used to getting card reveals streams in the end of the revealing period, but now we get one in the beginning (and presumably another one in the end?).
      As it was already known, the card reveals will restart on November 20. The stream, hosted by Game Designer Peter Whalen and Brian Kibler, will begin at 11 a.m. PST or 8:00 p.m. CET of that day. It will be broadcast on the PlayHearthstone Twitch channel and it will be available in several languages.
      Hopefully we'll get a good amount of cards shown; we'd expect to see around 15 cards. As always, Icy Veins will be here to cover this. Don't forget to keep an eye at our Kobolds & Catacombs hub!

      We finally have a new brawl this week and it rewards a Kobolds & Catacombs pack.
      In this Tavern Brawl, you just pick a class and you get a random deck.
      Both players get a quest. This quest requires that 7 minions are played by any player. When the quest is completed a Treasure Chest, similar to the one spawned by Marin the Fox, will appear on both sides of the board and the quest counter will be reset.
      If you are the one to play the 7th minion, then an easier-to-break 0/4 Treasure Chest (which can be healed) will appear on your opponent's side. In contrast, a normal 0/8 Treasure Chest will appear on your side of the board and vice versa.
      Be aware that even though the quest states that minions need to be summoned, they actually need to be played. This means that cards like Stand Against Darkness or the minions summoned from cards like Barnes or Murloc Tidehunter do not add to the quest counter.
      This Tavern Brawl combines skill and luck. You have to make critical decisions in choosing whether to push face damage or break the chest and hope for the best. On the other hand, a good Treasure Chest highroll can completely change the game.
      Upon victory in this brawl, you will be awarded with a Kobolds & Catacombs card pack which can be opened when the new expansion releases.
