'm the kinda person who will try anything once.
Go right ahead, label me as a geek or a nerd, whatever, I like to play Magic Cards and I ended up playing more than once.
The first time I was introduced to Magic, I felt like it wasn't for me... but why not? I really liked Pokemon cards when I was younger so why not this? Magic cards gave off that vibe of a bunch of people playing in a dimly lit basement that smells like a pizza shop with a hint of BO, and some people take Magic Cards very serious, which can be intimidating.
I'll admit, as a newbie playing with people who already know the game makes it a lot easier to get into. Having a friend or your spouse help introduce you to the game is a great way to learn about how the turns work and what the different card types do, but Its JUST a card game, anyone can figure it out.
What makes it so fun, is all the different "creatures" and "enchantments" ect. that you can build a deck with... Super strong Angels? Zombies? Spirits? All pirates? OR DINOSAURS? There are different decks that have different cards all with their own special powers. There's another box being released soon* that my boyfriend and I are excited to go buy! *I think this weekend? IXALAN
Check out the video of us playing! We each built new decks and battled to the death! Who wins? *This was my FIRST TIME building my own deck!
We went out this weekend and got the new block Rivals of Ixalan! Watch me unbox it in my first ever ASMR type video (this may help you fall asleep)
