I've stopped playing MTG for 6-7 years. Still missing it though, but I have no good amount of times.

I've been to a few comic book stores and seen some serious nerds playing some kind of game similar to that.



When it comes to my nerdy side:

I play this $hit right here



Best board game ever.

Many of them go to hold em' poker instead. That David Williams, who came second in WSOP, is one of them.

Also, competitive collectible card game in general is dead, or at least in coma, IMO. Online gaming takes over some times ago.

Yeah, they can. Even pros do. But if you want to go further into more real competitive levels, you gotta get real cards, which cost a lot even in latest types.

Well, in casual games, if they don't mind they will allow you to do proxy decks. If you want to play for prizes, on the other hand, they won't.

Never played any of those fantasy card games... they always seemed like a gauranteed way not to get laid.

Not trying to diss anyone who plays... that was always just my first thought when I walked by a group of kids playing those games.

I won $1,000 playing this game in middle school finishing top 8 in California. Then in highschool I quit because I thought it was lame and i turned my attention to parties and girls. Then in rehab-people played this game cus we didn't have TV, and they rationed super smash bros so we could play it 30 minutes a day only.

Then three years later-this present day, I started playing again. I realized the only reason I quit was because it had a nerd stigma, and I think it's stupid now to quit doing something you like just because some people will make fun of you.

So far in 3 months back in I have won about $200 at a local store, so it isn't a bad hobby, it brings in a little money and doesn't take up so much time.

It's not really a dead game like people in here say, it's actually pretty popular still, more popular than ever infact atleast according to sales, and the best people at magic are good at poker, this is true.
