    My Experience With Magic

    I started playing MTG December 2010 on my PS3. I first downloaded the demo from the Playstation Store and after I understood how to play and rules of the game, I was hooked. I love how it uses strategy because it reminds me of playing chess. I find the entire game captivating...

    I started playing just last week

    and I love it! I went to the Khans of Tarkir prerelease at the weekend and had a lot of fun. I won 2 rounds, lost 3 and drew 1, and all 6 of my opponents complimented me on my deck. I'm so glad my husband persuaded me to pick up his spare deck so he could try out his tweaks to...

    Magic Is Awesome!

    I got cards when I was 17, was about the time of ice age. I never actually played then, and now 10 years later I am ACTUALLY playing. However, all my cards are not usable and had to start from scratch. Only 3 are still usable. So now I have only been playing about a month, in...

    What a Specific Group!

    I started playing Magic in the 4th or 5th grade. My dad supplied with cards, and i played tournaments at my afterschool program with the boys. I was never as good as them, but I slowly trained and got a lot better. Once I got to middle school, I was forced to give up the game...

    I Love This Game So Much.........

    I now work in a gaming store, just to earn money to pay for the cards.  Heck they could just pay me in booster packs.  I'm often the only girl in a tournament, but I just don't care.

    I love this game so much!

    I am addicted. I own over 7000 cards. I love the deck building, the new people you get to meet playing the game, and the lore behind each of the characters is beautiful. I have a youtube channel where I post some videos about MTG and more if you want to check it out. https://www...

    Oh What A Fun Game

    Back in 2004, when I was a freshman in high school, I tried to play MTG in hopes of growing out of Yu-Gi-Oh. But once the workload of my prep school increased, I realized I didn't have time to play. So, I put my little collection in a small card box and put it on hold. About 6...

    How Did You Get Into Magic?

    I play Magic in LA and run a large meetup group for magic...I keep wondering what can we do to reach out to more female players? As I have maybe 4 ladies a year come by to play out of our 52 meetings. So what can be done in your mind to make Magic a more popular game with you...

    I Love Magic.

    I started playing Magic because my ex-boyfriend played. Now I still play, a year later. I'm not great and I'm not bad. I usually make my older male friends help build me decks. Big perk - guys just give you cards. I was given 5 plainswalkers. 2 Jaces, and 3 Lilianas. People are...

    Oh Ladies, Why Can't You Play Magic With Me? It'd Be So Much More Fun.

    I find it rare to meet other ladies who play magic the gathering, especially where I live. It's a shame that more ladies don't play magic. All the guys I know are arrogant when they play magic.
