Magic the Gathering

Sometime in 1995 i had one of those 'Eureka' gaming moments when i was introduced to Magic. Within a week of ripping open my first booster i had a couple of thousand cards and went on to have my life dominated by making decks and playing them at tournements in and around London. I stopped being obssessed by the game some time in 1998 and gave up altogether a year or two later.

I played a Zendikar booster draft last night, my first exposure to a new set in a long time, and despite coming very last i thoroughly enjoyed it. It's amazing to that, after seventeen years, the game feels fresh and interesting. Having a boardgame 'habit' is bad enough for my wallet; i don't think i'll be rekindling my love affair with Green/White weenie decks.
