Good Day and Happy Tuesday MTG peoples,

Here at MTG Realm, we like to push away from the game table and have a look around from time to time to see what is happening now strictly with our favourite card game but what may be happening on the peripheral to the game. To this end, we have some short tid-bits of news 'n' updates - we start with the overseers of Wizards of the Coast or rather their corporate masters, Hasbro . .

Magic, Games Again Key to Hasbro
business article from ICV2, Published: 10/18/10, Last Updated: 10/19/10 03:58am

Magic: The Gathering was cited in the company’s conference call as one of three Hasbro “mega-brands” that helped the company perform well in Q3, along with Nerf and Playskool. “Magic: The Gathering again this quarter was a standout performer,” Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner said. “The team has done a great job reigniting this brand over the past few years.”
Iron Man and board games such as Operation, Scrabble, UBuild, Bop It, and games based on Toy Story 3 were also cited as strong performers in the quarter.

Next up, books you can get at your local bookery shoppe . . .

Now he must turn to a former enemy for help: the dragon Nicol Bolas, perhaps the only being in the Multiverse powerful enough to get him back on his feet.
