Here's the story:

In 1995, a group of guys decided to jump on the Magic: The Gathering bandwagon, and built themselves a studio. They acquired the license for a whopping... $5,000. No joke. Try that now with any geeky property.

So, Thunder Castle Games (as they called themselves) called it quits in 1999... but there were licensed companies out there still making cards, famously, the lost Black Raven sets that are so rare it's estimated that only a rough thousand (THOUSAND!) of each set exists. A set sold on eBay in 2010... for $3,500.

Anyway, fast-forward to 2003 and Wizards tries to get TCG to sell their interest in the property. No dice.

2004 it's Alderac (Legend of The Five Rings) Entertainment Group trying... they offer $25,000 and got shot down.

2007 and Upper Deck tries to acquire the rights directly from Gaumont Television and Panzer. Neither one of them is interested, and the rights sit in Thunder Castle Games' hands still.

2009. After an assessment of whether or not it'd be feasible to bring the game back, TCG goes ahead (now just three guys) and manages to secure a line of credit, and begins planning a new edition. Let me repeat that: The game has such a strong following a DECADE after it's dead that a bank gave them a line of credit based on previous sales, and they begin sending out flyers to gaming stores.

2012: Highlander (at this point, literally, The Game That Will Not Die) not only establishes a rather large base of players, new AND old, but also the most fanatical. Estimates list the average player age at 30 and the amount spent on the game an average of $1,000 over the five sets released.
...and 15 years after it debuted, with a card pool just shy of a scant 1,500 (that'd rank as "tiny") it and the aforementioned Legend of The Five Rings frequently get lauded as the most strategic CCGs ever. You can hold an "unbeatable" deck, know the rules, play it horribly and LOSE. EVERY. TIME.

//Kinda the anti-Magic/Pokemon.

Interesting. My magic deck decided who it wants to win with it. It was designed by a guy who's spent a few years on the pro tour, and he's pretty much the only other player it wants to win with.

The Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations called for increased security of mosques and Islamic schools after a woman armed with a sword entered an Orlando-area mosque Wednesday.

The biggest threat to the lives of muslims is other muslims. CAIR tolerates muslim extremism. This "call for security" is hypocrisy and distortion at its finest.

And one woman with a sword is barely reason to divert resources to watch every mosque in the country.

Pretty much, but it's been tweaked just a little bit.
