Under the Microscope

I’ve mentioned before that I’m an avid player of role playing games: games that have you take on the role of some character you create as you go off to do…something. I know that doesn’t seem very specific, but honestly, it’s impossible to be more specific given the vast array of RPGs on the market […]

Baseball card RPG, putting old cards to good use

I’m sure I’m not alone in the group of kids that collected baseball cards in the 80s/90s with hopes of cashing them in 20 years later so you could retire. Funny thing is that never happened. The baseball cards from about 1982 to 1995 are probably some of the most worthless cards ever produced…because they […]

Magic: The Gathering, preparing for Gatecrash, Ravnica Returns

Last week, we took a look at the central dynamics present in M13. As a general rule, M13 presented a rather straightforward picture of what each colour can do (which makes sense, given it’s meant more as an introduction than anything else). The only new card mechanic presented was Exalted, a very powerful mechanic that […]
