    Not sure where the correct forum is but since there's a VS Card game thread here... :cool:


    Any of you guys play ? :dunno:

    I quit a long time ago but thinking of coming back in Time Spiral. The set looks kickass.

    I'm also thinking of trying to eBay my old cards but I'm having a hard time setting up a Paypal account.

    I played a long time ago and quit because of the green involved with being competitive.

    Well ironically, I'm trying to come back to try and make some money out of it :dunno:

    1. Sell old cards
    2. Buy new cards
    3. Win tourneys
    4. ???
    5. Profit

    Although I haven't really tried that before :noes:

    I have played somewhat competitively at Magic for quite a while, one of my friends is up for Rookie of the Year for the Magic Pro Tour. I wouldn't recommend doing it personally. I think it isn't worth the time, you could make more money selling stuff on ebay, I would play for fun because Time Spiral is a badass set (I judged at my local prerelease) but stay away from making it too serious, makes it lose the fun.

    I played a looooooooooong time ago since Alpha and Beta.......ah the good days without a new expansion every month or so.
    Even had THE Black Lotus.

    Sadly, I stopped playing pretty much all card games bout 3 years ago. Sold all my MTG cards.....got a decent price for all of them too.

    I doubt i'll play again

    Cool ! So how do I start becoming a Pro or anything at all ? I've been to some pre-release tournaments though but that's all. I'm planning to try the FNM thing. But I'm not really sure what's next after that.

    Also, I've been thinking of buying boxes then selling singles. Do you think that would be a good idea ? :dunno:

    I would only take it seriously if you have tons of time to dedicate to it. Start by visiting magicthegathering.com and the archives of some of the pro tour players and just start playing all the time

    Oddly enough my friends and I go through phases, we played like every night at the beggining of this summer and then stopped for like a month and now we were talking about playing tonight. I think it's a great game and love playing, when we play we usually use mostly older cards and make our own deck (the average deck price in our group is getting up to 80 bucks now)

    I use Apprentice and the software doesn't prevent anyone from doing anything wrong (like more than 4 copies, etc etc).

    It's just a small program to play online IP to IP. And you should just keep an eye on your opponent to see if he's cheating.
