Hello all! I have a special episode for you today, wherein we have a great big discussion on MAGIC: THE GATHERING – something I haven’t really dived into too deeply before on the show. For most of my life I was very, very skeptical of these games – I still think, for good reason. But I think there was also a lot of good stuff that I really have been missing out on, and I’m actually pretty excited to dive into MTGA recently.
To chat with me about these games is Ryan Bowles and Eli Priest, a couple of cool guys I know who have spent decades playing Magic very seriously. They also have been engaged with me over at the Discord on game design discussions for years, and they’ve both done some game development. That means we kinda “speak each other’s language” well enough to have a productive conversation!
I also wanted to take this opportunity to mention that I will be making a CCG of my own – one that is customizable, but not collectible (no rares/random booster pack type shenanigans). I’ll have more news on that soon, but if you want to be the first to get the details on it, make sure to become a Patron!
