Interested in your thoughts/opinions


I grew up a pen and paper game player, never really saw or understood allot of the misconceptions of it. From there, I moved to tossing cards with Magic:The Gathering. My wife and I used to play this allot. Now that we have kids, its no longer as viable as it used to be to do, but I have dabbled some in M:TG Online. Since this is a game review forum, I would like to get your thoughts on it. I still have all my old cards, I'm a junk collector of sorts. (comics, cards, ect)

As long as it remains simply a way to have fun, yet not the main focus of your time, energy, or money, I don't see a problem with it. That always seems to me to be the main problem associated with things of the "magic" orientation; it isn't necessarily just that in the game you control creatures and magic.

Ouch...probably the best thing at the time. I've thought about giving mine away several times as we no longer play but heck, I can't help but think they might be worth something someday. So they sit, in a duffle bag, in a ceder chest waiting.

If you want to get rid of them, you could try a local card shop.

As for the game itself, I can't really comment. My parents have always thought it was bad, so I never played it. I don't know if I agree with them or not though, as I've never played it, nor had much experience seeing others play.
