Magic: The Gathering

Magic: The Gathering is a trading card and strategy game developed by Richard Garfield and published by Wizards of the Coast in 1993. It was originally called Manaclash and brought a fresh approach to the existing role-playing games in that it is much simpler to learn, more portable, and quicker to play.

When you play Magic you are a powerful wizard who is locked in an epic combat with one or more other wizards. To win you must draw mana from the lands you control to summon monsters, cast spells, create enchantments, and wield powerful magical artifacts. The game consists of five different card colors, artifacts, and lands that can be combined into an infinite combination of decks. Typically a two or three color deck is common but some decks are rainbow (all colors), single color, or strictly made up of artifacts. Much of the skill in Magic is based on your ability to build a deck that works well together, meaning that it is streamlined and contains powerful combinations.
