All Facebook Games are Alike

Every time I fire up a new Facebook game I can’t help but feel that I’ve played it before. Sure the graphics are different and the names of things are similar but not quite the same. But the basics are identical. Click on something and energy gets used. When energy is gone you have to […]

Take it With You

I used to bring my xbox 360 hard drive to work with me from time to time so I’d have access to my library of Rock Band songs available in the store when I had it running on demo. Now I’ve got all my save games and most of my Rock Band songs on a […]

Drafting in MTGO

Tonight I’m taking part in my first draft in MTGO. After looking through the tournament types I finally settled on an M10 Swiss draft. This way I get to play all 3 rounds whether I win or lose, and at the end I win a booster pack for each match that I won. Plus I […]

Tokens tokens tokens

Another old favorite Magic deck of mine was a squirrel deck. It wasn’t all squirrels since there were only a couple squirrel generators back then, but Waiting in the Weeds, Snake Basket and Liege of the Hollows guaranteed that you’d have quite a pack of rodents out pretty quickly. There’s even more token stuff out […]

You Gonna Use That Land?

That’s what I titled my most recent Magic deck in MTGO. You Gonna Use That Land?. It’s a blue/green land wrecker deck. Green stuff destroys it, blue stuff turns it into islands or causes pain when you tap it. I keep having mana problems of my own with it though despite having 20 lands in […]
