So it goes like this. Last August, I went to PAX. I played some card games while there. So when Tribe One and I went on our first of three straight tours together, I said to him, “Hey Tribe. Will you teach me how to play Magic?” It seemed like a good idea. Touring is a lot of waiting around, a lot of sitting at a hotel, a lot of mindless boredom. This figured to be a good way to kill some time, and since we’re basically in a new city every day, a good way to incentivize our travel by getting boosters in each new city. I still remember what he said to me. He said, “You have no idea what you’re about to do to yourself.”
Cut to three months later, and I’m utterly obsessed with Magic. It’s bad. I’m talking deckbuilding and buying boosters almost daily, bad. But I love it. It’s the only tabletop game I’ve ever gotten this deep into. So thanks Wizards. For the horrible sickness I am now afflicted with. And the hours and hours of fun.
To satisfy our horrible urges to play, me, Mikal kHill and Tribe One play online with each other, almost nightly, via google hangout. And in a weird way, it’s brought us all closer together. So we obviously had to make a mixtape for you. Hope you enjoy it.
I’ll be doing a bunch of shows in March, around the south and the east coast. Check me out!
