MTG April Fools

Happy Friday MTG peeps,

This weekend, countless Magic: the Gathering players are heading to their local gaming stores to partake in the Shadows Over Innistrad PreRelease event.  Wishing all players the best of luck, have a fun time and may the odds be forever in your favour.  If you happen to find yourself in Central Ontario over the weekend, drop by OMG! Games, here in Barrie, Ontario, Canada-Land where, at midnight tonight, right after Friday Night Magic, they will be starting prerelease tournaments all weekend long.

Anywhoos, back to the title of today's post to MTG Realm - 'April Fool's Day.  This interesting day probably has something to do the ancient Roman festival of Hilaria, held on March 25th, but here in North America today, it is all about fun and frivolity.  Here is a quick roundup of some related posts to our sister blog, MTG Realm on Tumblr -

Magic: the Gathering - TCG: TINY CARD GAME
All the fun of your standard Magic deck, now in super-concentrated form.  Travel Edition includes everything you need to play head-to-head.  Pick up a Expansion Pack to customize your MtG-TE deck - available only during April Fool’s Day.

Considering it has the word “Gathering” in its title, you’d think Magic would be more of a travel game. Not that it’s difficult to carry around, but it is challenging to play in an impromptu location. You’ve got your deck with you. Your friends have their decks with them. Now all you need is 2 feet of lateral space on a flat surface each, and you’ll be good to go. It doesn’t sound like much, but it is. Those of you who end up at tournaments playing with mats overlapping your neighbors’ know what we’re talking about. And your tray table on the airplane just isn’t going to cut it. So if you can’t get more space, what’s your other option?

Smaller cards. That’s why ThinkGeek and Wizards of the Coast have come together to released a new Magic: The Gathering - Travel Edition just in time for the summer travel season. With 120 mini cards, MtG-TE has all the fun of your standard Magic deck, now in super-concentrated form. The carrying case itself turns into a Battle Board with an integrated playmat and life counters for a head-to-head duel. And don’t fret that you might not be able to read the abilities / flavor text on your mini cards. MtG-TE comes with 2 pairs of Battle Magnifier goggles, also handy for reading the small print on those commercials for prescription drugs where the side effects are nausea, vomiting, and spontaneous combustion. If you enjoy MtG-TE, we encourage you to pick up a expansion pack and build your own travel deck that’s a force to be reckoned with.
