Don't think of it as being outnumbered. Think of it as having a wide shot selection!

Re: Magic:The Gathering

Thanks for the info Richard. I'm glad someone finally took my question seriously.

Sometimes I get a strong hankering to play Magic again. I need to find a place that hosts draft tournaments, because that is when I have the most fun with M:tG.

Re: Magic:The Gathering

Yea. Happyjosiah and I just starting playing Magic. Well actually Happy has played it before he just recently brushed me up on the rules. I've madea couple of decks which I think are pretty good.

It's a fun game. I wish I was good/rich enough to play it on a professional level so that I wouldn't have to worry about a job as much. I'm still waiting on Heroscape to go professional.

check local shops for FNMs. many do drafts at least 50% of the time.

it's generally not worth it. 1 out of every couple million has enough connections and skill to make a living, and even then it's not much of a living.

if you wanna play a game professionally for a living, you're much better off with poker. most professional m:tg players have switched over since the returns are so much higher for such a simpler game.

Re: Magic:The Gathering

Could anyone direct me to a reliable resource for pricing Magic cards?

That is to say, I have a collection, and if I wanted to know it's approximate worth to the current market where should I go?

Thanks,

Re: Magic:The Gathering

www.starcitygames.com and www.blackborder.com were 2 sites I used often. I know there are a couple others but I can't think of them. Once I get home from work I'll check my bookmarks. Those should help you get started.

Re: Magic:The Gathering

Try www.magictraders.com they're generally pretty reliable. Starcity tends to overprice singles, so they're not the best place to go for accurate pricing.

I don't need no instructions to know how to rock.

Re: Magic:The Gathering

I run the Magic: the Gathering meet-up in Seattle. We have 193 members but average attendance is ~20. I also run small events in my house and have judged at other events.

If anyone on here lives near Seattle and wants to know where to find a game, just let me know when you're available and I can recommend a few groups.

Re: Magic:The Gathering

I've recently got into the game and am currently battling a MTG online addiction. The first step is admitting I have a problem.
