Kidding, kidding. ;-)


My boy has started doing the Yugio (yeah, I just butchered the spelling of that :-o ) card game though. :-o

I played Magic online when playing it online first got popular. I played for awhile using Apprentice (I think that's what it was called) and then shortly with the official game. I started playing Magic during the Beta run and sold my collection for a profit right about the time Fallen Empires came out. That kind of sucked the wind out of my sails and I tried to get back into it online but just couldn't ever rediscover the magic. :-D

I'm close to the same boat as Amazinz, although I started in the Unlimited era instead of Beta and hung around playing until Ice Ages. I continued to run a Card Shop after I quit playing and sold my ownership in late 1998. The last set I actually remember coming through the shop was Stronghold. The game had simply become to splintered for me to hold any appeal. There were only a few dozen players left in the area who would play Type I tourneys and the Type II tourneys grew old real fast for me because the variety of decks people would use were usually limited to a couple archtypes.

I played magic online beta for a good 5 months. I got really good at it when it was free so when it went live I was able to win a lot of tournaments. I was ranked in the top 50 (it helped that I had friends ranked higher). Made about $750 then quit since it was eating up all my time.

Prior to that I did play Magic fairly competitively but got tired of traveling from place to place just to play. If I went back it would be online only.

When I played I preferred tangibly owning the cards, so I stayed away from online. I quit about 4 or 5 years ago, although I kept my cards. Couldn't bring myself to give them up.
