76: Magic the Gathering’s 25th Anniversary

This year marks the 25th Anniversary of the collectible card game, Magic: the Gathering. Everyone here at DSRA plays MtG and we were all excited to “research” with a Dominaria Booster Draft tournament. We were also delighted to partner with The Nifty Nerd and drink some great planeswalker themed cocktails while we played. Kyle begins the episode with a look at the origin of card games and the use of them in storytelling. Claire then talks about the creation of MtG by Richard Garfield at Wizards of the Coast and explains why it was so crucial for the company at the time. Our hosts conclude with how they were introduced to Magic, how the spells you cast reflect your personality, and their experience playing in the tournament.
