Latest Obsession: Magic the Gathering

Hello my lovely readers. This post is gonna be geeky and about a card game, just a little heads up for folks. 

For a few months I’ve been looking for a card game that I could play with ross and the sis. (FYI ross doesn’t play cards. Damn it!!) As I was looking I came across a game called Magic the Gathering. Never heard of it so I went to my local comic book shop for some more info. And I got loads!! A game that has a story for each new deck thats brought out!! A strategic game that gets the player highly invovled with the story. (I probally couldn’t play outside of the house. Due to all the rules!) 

Magic the Gathering is a turn based card game that is all about tactics, mana and knowing how your cards work. You get 20 health points at the start. Winner is whoever gets the enemy down to 0 first. A lot like yugioh in a way. There are 5 different cards types. These are:

Blue – tricky cards that help boost mana or destroy a players deck with monsters with awesome defense. 

Red – fast and hard hitting. Great for impatient players that hate long games. 

Black – can tap into the graveyard and steal mana from other players. 

Green – these are all earthy based cards that can easily replenish your dwindling life points. 

White – the holy knights that can easily defend you and can give you life too. 

There is different cards again in these groups. Instants, Sorcery, Artifacts, Creatures, Enchantments etc. These can also be combos. Like an Artifact Creature.

I’m a green and black mana player. I love the great combo that they have together and how well they play together. 2 of my favourite cards, both strong but totally awesome. (Not to mention the art work and detail thats gone into them!!!) It’s great when I summon certain cards cause my sister hates them! But I’ll be honest its a great game thats gotten me off my computer and once again chatting about god knows what. 

It can be pricey though. Some people prefer to play it online which is free to play. Ive given it a shot but I prefer having the cards in my hand. 
Until next time my lovelies.

      1. I’ve thought about trying to get a set of all 5 of them, but my goodness, they start at $10 on amazon and go up from there. I can’t justify that kind of money on something like that 🙂

      2. Yep, I’m a casual player and have no interest in tourneys, so that keeps me from playing with a lot of the people at the local game store. They’re all super-competitive and I just want to have fun. Oh well…

  1. It’s always fun to see when people discover Magic: The gathering. When they see that the game has a story. When they see the complexity that is possible with the game.
    I remember teaching my wife to play and then taking her to a tournament the next night. We both had a blast.

    1. Thats one of the best bits for the game. The story behind each character and card.
      Would love to go see a tournament, would create loads of ideas.
      I’d love to teach my partner how to play but he doesnt like card games.
