BEDiM 2013 : DAY 9



(A Blog Every Day in May 2013 Challenge Entry)

I believe today’s post is supposed to involve a picture. Had I went out with my NaNo friends, there would have been a decent chance at me getting a new photo taken. A friend just got a new camera and is sure to be fanatical about taking random pics for some time. As it is, no new pic.

Day 9, Thursday: A moment in your day (this can be just a photo or both a photo and words).

So, I will have to use a stock photo (one not even featuring myself!) associated with today...

Back to Magic

Tonight was the first night playing Magic: The Gathering, at a competitive level, for almost 6 months. I think I played one Friday Night Magic event in between “quitting” and now. It was a draft game, and I got rocked pretty hard. 0-2 my first match (with the first game of the match being relatively close, the second I was crushed).

Match two I went 1-2, so at least I got in a win. I need to learn not to keep shitty hands — like in game three — but thought I would draw into some needed cards. No such thing occurred.

The card winning me my one win for the evening. I never "looked" at it beyond the text. Creepy lol

Third match I got the “By”. This means the game feels so sorry for me that I don’t have to play, and it counts as a “win”. IE: Lowest ranked player gets the “By” from my understandings. So this is technically a 2-0, but unsure if they count them as such.

Basically, I got rocked!

It was a lot of fun, though, playing with my brother and a handful of friends I’d not seen in some time.  It was almost like a Mini Magic Reunion!

So, that was a snippet of my day. I’m sure only 10% of my readers (of 30 followers) will know what the hell I’m talking about. That may be me being optimistic!

Have you heard of Magic: The Gathering? Do you, or have you ever, played Magic: The Gathering? Have you ever participated in any sort of tournament or competition (gaming/sports/etc)?
