Magic The Gathering is a card game that geeks used to play at my University.
As I was forking my spare money out for a Comic Collection I really coudn't afford the added expense of buying Magic Cards.
That didn't stop it from being a really popular phenomenon that's still alive and well today.
Now you can play Magic without having to spend, spend and spend some more building your deck of cards thanks to this XBox LIVE Arcade title.
You're a Planeswalker... a wizard who walks the land looking for other wizards to duel.
You start with 7 random cards from your deck and battle it out. You need land to fuel your creatures and spells as you attempt to whittle away, or pound your opponent until they are at 0 health.
Some people might swear "Pokemon"' is just for kids but there's a reason why the franchise is so huge.
There's a reason the "Magic" franchise has been so popular, even as a trading card game. There's fun to be had here and at 800 MS points you'll struggle to find better value for your MS points on XBox LIVE Arcade.
Make sure you grab the 2012 version (as there is an older one which was great fun also) on the marketplace.
This version gives you multiplayer, coop and some Deck Management ability.
Well worth checking out.
