Icy Minipulator

icyAs well as my youthfull enthusiasm for Fantasy books, computer games and Games Workshop, another dose of fantasy inspiration came from playing Magic the Gathering.

I first started playing whilst perusing another hobby, Laser quest. Many of the regulars also played Magic the Gathering and many a Saturday where spent rotating between shooting lasers and summoning Dragons.

I was so into the game that I used to buy new sets by the case not the packet, which admittedly did mean that I had full sets of

Fallen Empires





And a majority of all 3 Urza’s sets. I even had a few of Alpha,Beta and Unlimited Edition Cards.

This extensive collection including some significantly rare cards meant that when it came time to sell net me a tidy sum, although I’m sure even then I didn’t break even.

M:TG is now available as an online Game on your PC, which I think could be really unhealthy for your bank balance, as well as for various console devices and soon tablets, but whilst intriguing as these are this takes the collecting aspect take away which for me was one of the most fundamental parts of the hobby.jesters

Whilst I have out grown M:TG and mostly retired from Laser quest, I do still have a folder or two of the cards kicking about the house, and when working in store was often tempted to buy myself a new starter pack “just see if they were the same”

    Yes. I still get together and play me some MTG with friends every now and then it’s nostalgic. I remember the first time I started actually playing; it was around the Prophecy, Onslaught. Good times.

    I have to agree with you. MTG played a huge part on my obsession with Fantasy.
