Bags For Magic Players

A few months ago, I had to go for a Magic game out of town and searching for a bag to bring to carry all my Magic cards and folders, I ended up using a Sobey’s recyclable bag which the spouse thought was so ugly.  But looking at other players, they too were holding some [...]

Pro Stuff

We’ve been selling these like hot cakes – so I ordered more in for the gamers for pokemon and Magic the Gathering.  I liked the fact that I can order things without worrying if they will move immediately because I know that they are in demand.  Sometimes, customers just don’t have the money yet – [...]

For The Gamers At The Store

We’ve done custom t-shirts for the Magic The Gathering players who went up to Halifax for their card games – it’s like an investment  – and a walking advertising and even though it wasn’t cheap, I thought that it was alright.  Since winter is coming and the games are still on all year round, maybe [...]

GPT Boston – Worchester

Just got back from New Minas from the Grand Prix Trials and am very tired but happy that I had gone for it.  The games lasted for 6 hrs – I didn’t win anything, in fact was at the bottom of the list – but all in good fun.  Will I go for another one [...]

Summer Gaming

A friend had invited the entire family for a BBQ -  in his cottage – which was actually one of those trailer – now I didn’t realized that they were so nice and that there were more than one family in the country having the same kind of model trailers.   So while the family is [...]

Rebuilding Squirrels Ahoy

It used to have more than just squirrels in it, there were cats and snakes as well, and probably some other little critters I’m forgetting about now. And green lordish type things like Kaysa and Juniper Order Druid. The new version is going to be entirely squirrels if possible, with Doubling Season and some planeswalkers. [...]

Scars of Mirrodin

Another Magic set is almost upon us and the spoilers are running rampant. So far this set is looking absolutely powerful. Lots of “new” mechanics, I say new because while Infect looks new it’s really just a combination of 2 old mechanics; wither and poison. Proliferate looks like it will be insane with Planeswalkers, and [...]

The Titanic

I’ve finally done it! I built the deck I’ve been thinking of since M11 was released. The Titanic. It was originally 20 Titans and 40 ways to get mana onto the table. Now it’s 20 Titans, 4 Clones, 4 Rite of Replication and 32 ways to get mana onto the table. It’s almost always a [...]

I’ve been so out of touch with Magic over the last (great) number of years and so many changes have been made to the game that it took a while to really get back into and know what was going on. I’ve pretty much caught up on everything so I decided to take the Rules [...]
