I played Magic when I was 11. It was a fun game, and there's a part of me that wishes that it were my hobby. But, incidentally, a couple of years ago I roomed with a group of strangers in college (they knew each other; I was the new guy), and they played the game and asked if I was interested in getting some cards and joining in on the fun, and I looked at them -- quintessential nerd guys: overweight, acne-ridden, sweaty and antisocial -- and I couldn't bring myself to admit to them that I had played the game 14 years earlier.

But it was a fun game; it just attracts "those kind of guys" particularly, I guess.

I chased down an 8 year old master thief who stole a handful of pokemon starter packs from the book store I worked at. Ballsiest thing I ever saw. We were all busy at the registers, and he just walked right behind the counter, grabbed a big double-handful, and walked out.

I caught up to him right as he reached his parents. He tried to deny it, but couldn't quite explain where he'd gotten $40 worth of sealed pokemon decks.

Parent used SPANK.

It was super-effective.

How does that work? As I said above, I'm sort of interested enough in the game to be a closeted player, but how do you go about acquiring cards electronically? I guess you just pay for packs online, like you would in real life? But, unlike in real life, there's no resale value, so does that make buying cards electronically cheaper?

And, if I were to play on my PS3, does it go across platforms and I'd have the same account linked to my computer (or iPhone, if it works on them)?

A lot of hobby shops depended on collectible card games to stay open. And Wizards of the Coast never would've made a profit if there hadn't been hobby shops pimping their product. But then to show their gratitude to the hobby shops, they made deals with the big chain stores and wrote off the little guys.

Pox on them.

One of my former roommates picked up a whole box of several thousand Magic cards at a garage sale for about 10 bucks. He taught a few of us how to play over a summer, and it's actually pretty fun.

I just remember playing Magic was like social poison in highschool, so I never even bothered giving it a chance.

On July 6 a Walmart employee spotted the man stealing five packs of Magic: The Gathering trading cards. The man left the store without paying for them. The cards were valued at $19.90.

How many cards are in a pack? Four dollars a pack is pretty pricey depending on how many cards are in there.

I worked in a comic store like 16-17 or so years ago and I never owned any magic cards, but I knew how to play from helping administer some tournaments. Anyway, I think it was 4th edition that was out at the time, anyway the packs had a white top and bottom so if you turned the pack upside down, pushed down the first 3 or 4 cards with your nail and pressed that white plastic against the next card, you could read the name of the rare card without opening the pack. I'd set certain packs aside for my friends with dual lands and the other good stuff.

I did get talked into the Star Wars card game, and I wasted a bit of money on that crap. Karma, I suppose.

I just asked my son (he plays Magic) and he said there are 15 cards in a pack and that the price is usually $3-4 for an individual pack.

I wonder why people assume that escapist entertainment keeps you from getting laid. Yeah, I'd suppose the majority of MTG players are male. So are the majority of football fans and deer hunters and poker players. If you're into it to the extent that it dominates your social life, that would narrow your breeding pool, but most folk aren't that obsessive. Maybe the stereotypical MTG geek is unhandsome, but there's plenty of amphibian humanity up on the stadium benches and in the casinos and hunting lodges.

I don't play MTG though, nor do I know anyone who plays. Maybe the players are outlandishly ugly. Anyone have pictorial evidence (one way or the other)?

The Stars Wars CCG really was a piece of crap. My small group of friends switched from Magic to Star Wars because some of my friends' religious-conservative parents were concerned about the "themes" in Magic (my apathetic parents didn't give a shiat, god bless 'em). The group of us had Star Wars fever at the time, so we did collect the cards for a while, but the game was freaking horrible and the rules made no sense.

So it balances out to around 25 cents a card? Yikes. It must have cost someone a decent amount of coin to collect several thousand of them over the years.....only to have their mother sell the lot for 10 bucks at a garage sale.

It doesn't work that way as a video game. There are pre-built decks that you start out with and as you beat opponents and achieve certain feats, you unlock new cards you can arrange in your deck. I know it sounds kind of lame just talking about it, but it's actually pretty sweet, especially since you get to play with legendary cards that you would have to spend hundreds of dollars just to get one of IRL. You can play against real people online, but it is not cross-platform, just like any other video game. It is called Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Plainswalkers and it's available on PSN, XBOX Live, and Steam. I don't know how much it is on the other systems (because I don't like gaming on a PC and I use a REAL game console), but it's only $10 on PSN. They do come out with expansions here and there, and those are usually only about $5 a pop, so it's WAY cheaper than buying cards and trying to build the perfect deck.

Actually, there are quite a few female players at my local shop that hosts casual games as well as tournaments on several nights a week. Several of them are actually attractive and I would not be opposed to engaging of the intercourse with them. (But only if they have enough mana to cast.)

A lot of people don't pay hardly anything at all. They start with a deck or two and trade for other cards, sell rare/valuable ones (it is a COLLECTIBLE card game), and win packs and decks at tournaments.

Great story: my son is autistic, and I taught him how to play M:TG as a way to learn how to lose gracefully in social situations, ie. you can't scream and freak out when things don't go your way. 2 years later, and the little bastard beats me almost every time.

This. And with the availability of cards through Ebay, Amazon, and specialty online card shops, you can buy in bulk and save. I own roughly 4000 cards, but I'd guess my overall investment is only in the $300-400 range. Not too bad for a hobby. My other hobbies (video games and paintball mostly) have cost me at least that also.
 
2012-07-15 03:39:49 AM
I still play now and then...about once every 6 months a friend of mine forces me to learn the new cards and we build tournament decks and "practice" for about 12 hours the day before. Sometimes I'm out in 10 minutes. Once or twice I won/finished high enough, that I won money. It's frustrating to want to play because as another poster put it, it attracts "that" crowd; so there's a huge stigma. But you get all walks of life. My wife thinks I'm a nerd, but I get laid quite often (no kids yet, that's the secret).

But back when I played constantly, there were 2 guys...twins. Both weighed (i kid you not) 350-400 lbs each, and hadn't showered in weeks, flossed, brushed, anything. We called them Beebop and Rocksteady. And all they wanted to do was play. All day. Every day. We pitied, mocked, and felt sorry for them, all at the same time.

Other times, a few friends and our wives/girlfriends get together and play...the guys hang out and have a fun time...the women sit around the living room and talk about Dexter and whatever stupid paranormal show they're currently watching. To each his own. As my wife puts it whenever I choose to play M:TG, Diablo, or TF2..."I suppose it's better than trolling the bars drunk and high and risking a 1 night stand."

Another ex-player here, but I was working in a comic shop at the time and it's easy to keep buying packs. I play a few times a year now. One of the guys builds what is called a cube, a library of specific cards, then 5 or 6 of us get together and host our own booster draft style tournament, taking groups of 15 cards for a pack and building decks that way. So much better than chasing down cards and tweaking decks over and over. The occasional fix is enough that you can still enjoy it.

Actually, he's playing Duels of the Planeswalkers if he's playing on his PS3, which is mostly like Magic 101 (though it does have enough engagement for more experienced players).

Magic Online (I believe it's computer and mobile devices only, no consoles) works mostly like real Magic. You buy packs and "game tickets" (used to enter tournaments) with real money, and you can trade for cards with "game tickets". I imagine if you could get real money out of trades online, the FBI would be cracking down as hard as they've been cracking down on the poker sites.

My local game shop sells tons of magic cards every week holds near constant tournaments. There are almost always people playing in there all times of the day.

Apparently good stores get lots of rare/exclusive cards to hand out for winning in tournaments. And those tournaments all have entry fees that include card packs to participate.

1. You guys have been great buying all those Space Marine units, however because of this we've now decided that the armor of an SM will be 6+
2. Sales for Scouts are down a bit, so we've decided that their save is now 2+

I guess, in the end, it's sounds much like any other hobby. If you want to play it casually and just for fun there are plenty of cheap ways to do so (a quick ebay search has tons of sellers offering packs of 1000+ cards for around $40-$50) but if you want to be competitive and win money at tournaments you're probably going to have to spend more.

What city are you in? That might have a lot to do with it.

What happened to my friend the hobby shop owner happened way back in 2004. His supplier was rationing out pallets of cards between the hobby shops when Wal-Mart and the other big stores started buying their cards directly from WotC. Here in Las Vegas, the hobby/comic book shop owners and WoTC had a gentleman's agreement to do the tournaments and the whole nine yards in exchange for exclusive rights to sell those damned cards. When Wal-Mart started selling them at discounted prices, shops started going out of business.

ParadoxDice: Magic the Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 will be coming out soon, on Steam, PS3, and Xbox 360 as well as Ipad for the first time.


Duels 2013 came out several weeks ago on Live.


A buddy of mine writes for the M:TG website and told me that sales and tournament participation have skyrocketed since Duels 2012 came out last year. It's $10 and it opens up a huge might-be-interested-in-playing group.

I actually have never played before. I am 25, so when I was a kid we were all into pokemon cards, the game, and tv show (god we loved pokemon.) I just downloaded the iPad 2013 MTG Planewalkers. It is really fun. That said I dunno if I would enjoy paying for the unlocked version I don't know anyone else who plays or even would play on the iPad. I did however go download the pokemon trading card ROM and had a blast with that.

Just another Heartland Weirdass: PirateKing: I chased down an 8 year old master thief who stole a handful of pokemon starter packs from the book store I worked at. Ballsiest thing I ever saw. We were all busy at the registers, and he just walked right behind the counter, grabbed a big double-handful, and walked out.

I caught up to him right as he reached his parents. He tried to deny it, but couldn't quite explain where he'd gotten $40 worth of sealed pokemon decks.

Parent used SPANK.

It was super-effective.

So now when you run down a kid do you ask to be spanked or do they just know by the depraved, wanton look in your eyes?


Hey, fighting for justice is tough, we all have to unwind in our own way.
