Any Magic Users?

Postby frogimus » Mon Feb 05, 2007 10:35

Magic The Gathering (the card ggame) has an online version for windows, but I got it to run in gnome/wine (KDE was sluggish running it). But the tutorial doesn't seem to work with wine so don't bother trying that.

It's free at magicthegathering.com

You can run a free account.

LMK if any of you register or already play. Watch for frogimus

You know they have been talking about this forever around place and I still have never seen it or really know what it is about.

It's a game more my pace. I thought there was a setting for "dead spectator" in Nexiuz cause I'd get killed as soon as I logged on.

Magic is more of a strategy game. It was the first card-based game. I remember it being new when I played D&D 20 years ago. My 7-yo son is into Yu-Gi-Oh and someone got him to try this. It's a lot cheaper than YGO. Especially since you can play the online version for free. If you buy the right box set (the one that comes with the rulebooks and CD-ROM) then you get an activation code that basically gives you the same deck online.

Magic is a card game that Mega Geeks like me love to play when were not feverishly sitting around a college dorm playing Dungeons and Dragons. 8)

I call dungeon master :P, I play other card games / role playing games but not magic as it is too expensive.
