My Magic Story
I started playing Magic back in 1994, just before revised was released with a group of friends. After about a year of playing, Fallen Empires came out which we were grossly disappointed and most of my friends quit playing. Eventually, I sold whatever cards I had of value to pay for rent and food. Skip forward 20 years to 2013, my son, Nate started collecting Pokemon cards however he and his friends only collected them and did not play. I insisted that if he was going to spend money on collecting them he should take the time to learn how to play. So, I sat down and we figured out how to play. However, after playing Pokemon with him for a couple month, I found the game to be very linear and boring. I told him, we should try playing magic. Now for the last 4 years, we play nearly every week at our local game store and spend time brewing new decks.
