The Gathering

So I’ve recently started to get back into playing Magic the Gathering, a collectible card game, in which I like to describe as a mix between poker and chess. Mainly because I still think it is hilarious, the way I ended up getting back into Magic was when I was walking up the stairway heading to my apartment and happened to look into my downstairs neighbors window that was wide open. I saw four grown men sitting around a table playing cards on a Friday night. Normally, this wouldn’t be considered uncommon other then the fact I recognized the each players card layout on the table and there were way too many cards out to be poker. I immediately recognized the signs of Magic. I followed up with my neighbor the following day in which he confirmed my suspicions.

Four months later and having spent more money then I would like to admit here I am. I had originally played back in middle school and high school but not having a job or a means of income throttles your ability to have a successful deck and a decent collection. I’ve rebuilt my collection with the latest cards and have recently started getting back into the tournament scene, where my real passion lies.

The video below, although cheesy, includes basic information about what Magic really is.
