I watched the BGG TV interview they did with one of the designers of the Magic Boardgame and it looks interesting. I think I'm done buying those types of games because they're not gonna get much play in my house, but it looks like it'd be a lot of fun at a Con. Minis, cards, AND dice. I wonder why it took them so long to come out with this.
Magic's been around for twenty years! Holy shit. I'll never forget that first gaming convention post-Magic where there were just HUNDREDS of people paired off into Magic games, and it seemed like the end of an era. Things balanced out, but what a goddamn phenomenon.
