Magic the Gathering is a trading card game. It was the first of its kind and still considered to be the best. Trading card games combine collectable cards with a strategy game. The best part about a trading card game is that its always changing.
In Magic, you play the role of a planeswalker. Your planswalker is a powerful wizard who fights other planeswalkers for glory, knowledge, and conquest.
Your deck of cards represents all the weapons in your arsenal, the spells you know, and the creatures you can summon to fight for you. You design and build your own unique decks, and each Magic game you play is different. New Magic expansions are released a few times a year, and each new expansion brings new ways to stupefy and defeat your opponents.
