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.

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… :twisted:

I agree, Shootin Bricks!

I built a goblin deck for $10 at our local card game shop…

I never lost a game with it, though I did eventually lose the deck. :)

Oh well, I don’t playanymore, because the people that still do are fanatics.

Not only do they yell and scream whenever they think a rule is broken,
they don’t understand the rules. I like the game, but not the community.

Magic is one of the few games that I play outside of an electrical environment. Pity that no one within 75 miles of me plays. Currently I have one deck that isperfect–though not legal. At 25 cards, and enough power to do overkill on the 3rd turn, no one seems to want to play it.

Man, I havent played Magic in such a long time. Not since my brother left two years ago. I had both his and my cards. Like two of those huge boxes. Good thing I just found the Sci-Fi club at the college Im going to, and people play there! :D
