New to Magic
Put simply, 'Magic', as it is commonly known is a strategy card game, considered as a 'Mind Sport' like Chess, Scrabble or Bridge.
Magic has been around since 1993, created by Maths professor, Richard Garfield. It is now played by over 20 million across the five continents either casually or competitively, by all ages and backgrounds. It is printed in 11 languages by Wizards of the Coast, a subsidiary of game giant Hasbro.
It is very versatile: and can be played 1 on 1 or multiplayer, making it fun for all to play.
