Dear Squee Vol. 13
Our favorite Audio Engineer Squee McGee answers the Collective’s most burning questions!!
You in for some games??
You know what…
(End of Article)
It is no secret I am averse to online paper magic(if that statement even makes sense). I miss people, playing in person, and most importantly… a bunch of actual cards in a room duking it out. But the most recent Dear Squee article, which covered waning inspiration triggered me a bit. When I have played online I have thoroughly enjoyed my time… So why not play more often? It is convenient and interactive(insert marketing statement here).
Grumpy Old Man:
I have boiled down all of the above aversion to being a grudgingly old man… You know…
“It’s just not like it used to be.”
“We used to have amazing in person tournaments, and cards were only a nickel!
“Back in my day the game was pure…”
Welp… here is Squee giving himself the proverbial finger. Times have changed!
Everytime I have played an online game I have enjoyed my time and learned something to boot. Of course it is different, but in some very redeeming ways. I get to play games with people I would not have been able to just one year ago, and get to see decks that are outside of my normal playgroup. I can’t emphasize this enough… The meta has expanded in our recent times almost due to necessity, but the games are stronger than ever. Magic is bigger than ever… I am truly blown away that a card game I loved as a kid is still going. End of grumpy old man mode… Squee is back to game.
The box of gold has allowed me to dive into some cards I never planned on having access to(Oh Boo Hoo Squee!). I have some plans for deck updates, and yes I know you all are waiting on the edge of your seats for Rhys’ 248th card. But as of now, I’ll be coming to a game near you with new and improved decks. Just give me a few weeks to sort things out!
Thank you for asking and we will Jam(not jame) soon.
