Playing Magic Again

Life at the moment is out of control, hectic, a mad dash–busy. I’m preparing for my first Dragon Con Art Show, and hopefully many more to come, as well as being a mother and looking after a new kitten. Hence, this isn’t going to be much of a post. I just wanted to let everyone know I’m playing Magic the Gathering again, and kicking ass. I haven’t played the popular card game in about 17 years–that’s another story. My younger brother brought a ton of cards over the house this past weekend and asked if I wanted to play. I lost the first game, but I won the remaining three. In the final, game I demolished him. We had a great time and I remembered how much I love playing Magic. Thanks, little brother!

  1. Looks fun, but never heard of it, is it like D&D?

    • Interesting! I wonder is Magic never got a foothold in the UK? It’s Fantasy like D&D, but nothing like it really. Magic is strategy/trading card game. It was first released in 1993 when I was in high school. It’s still going strong, though some of the rules, especially in tournaments, have become more complex. I was first attracted to it by the art. Some of the artists, just a drop in the bucket, will be at Dragon Con this year. 🙂

  2. Excellent! What a great thing to have in common.
