I was able to connect with several Magic Players today at the house. Three people showed up to play MTG in real space with cards. The event was set up after a consensus with the other players at the last meeting. It is very hard for everyone to get together as people have busy work schedules and unanticipated conflicts arise. Overall, my decks did somewhat poorly and I feel many need to be reconstituted to be more competitive, but I managed to win one multiplayer round and a single player match. My island denial deck is probably the most competitive one on one deck I have. Still it was fun.
Everyone won rounds. Hopefully, everyone enjoyed the rounds. We played for about 5 hours, so it was quite a Magic marathon.
We held a drawing for a Saviors booster pack and a few simple items were given to players who showed up. The somewhat phallic art on the life counter card proved to be a constant source of amusement.
Despite schedules, we will try to meet again.
I also set up MTGO in the living room. I felt if we had a large number of players show up, it might be nice to provide people with something to do while the match resolved, but with the group that we had, it proved unnecessary.
