(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
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)?
