It looks like “return” has been kind of a keyword in my life and on the Archives lately, or at the very least a bit of a running theme. Me returning to the place I used to live, the return of Project Realm last week and of course my return to the Star Wars universe yesterday: they all certainly seem to reinforce that notion. Today another old friend of mine has returned again, namely the awesome card game Magic: The Gathering. I’ve been playing Magic for years, at first with friends and later also at a local game store, always fairly casual. I loved it then and I still do.
Unfortunately, my friends eventually started playing it less and less and sadly the store closed down a few years ago. While I’ve been trying to keep up with new releases and developments I haven’t actually played any Magic for some time. When I moved to my new place, though, I learned that some people I knew from my time here were playing again and looking for others, also asking if I had any interest.
And so the old boxes opened again and I was met with a lot of nostalgic feelings upon seeing and all those cards again. It did not take long before I began thinking of deck ideas once again. I haven’t even played yet, but I can say for certain I have found my Planeswalker spark once again!
