Well I go to my comic shop and buy my monthly pile of comics, but once I asked some small kids (who just bought new Yu gui oh (sp) cards) Why this was so cool. One of their answers were, “I don’t know” and the other was “their pretty cool looking”
So there you have it, Stupid kids buying stupid cards for stupid reasons.. (not that I have anything against them)
My friend makes a profit off of this stuff. He buys The cards then finds a bunch of dumb kids and Overprices the cards (and guess what) They Still Buy! What a strange world this is.July 17, 2003 at 8:59 am #8736

I know this guy who goes to Japanese conventions to buy Magic cards, which he sells to Dutch customers at quite a high price.
I once tried Magic: the Gathering, got me an Ice Age starter deck, and friends gave me lots of the more common cards that they didn’t have any use for.
Then I started to realise how the person who had invested most money into his deck would most easily win the game. I never bought another card, and I don’t know where my own cards reside right now. Probably somewhere at the bottom of a pile of old toys and stuff.

This is true up to a point. Theres nothing like seeing the look on some jokers face when you beat him silly with a slightly modified preconstructed deck you have about $20 invested in.
I have about 30 decks, none that I would call killer in a Type 1 environment and few that would qualify as Type 1 legal. But the way we play (we use my decks against each other) most of the decks are pretty evenly matched and it can be a lot of fun.
Unfortunately I havn’t played in a long time- my new hobby of brick animation has consumed all my time.
If you want to play but dont want to deal with the kind of jerks who hang out in card shops I suggest you buy a few preconstruted decks ($10 each) or one of the special sets (Battle Royale $20, Deckmasters $20 ) and learn to play with some friends. When you get bored with your preconstructed decks, buy some booster packs and modify them. When you’re just playing for fun, I think that this is the best way to go.
I may take a couple decks to Brickfest with me as Jared tells me that he plays a little…July 17, 2003 at 8:20 pm #8856
i used to collect cards, but the way it goes here in Alberta one week u-gi-ho is cool, the next week magic cards, the next week digimon cards and so on, some where in between U-GI-HO and Magic i realized it was a waste of money ($4.00 for seven peices of card aboard? please :roll )
