Does anyone in the ken still play Magic the Gathering (MTG)?
« on: September 23, 2013, 09:04:55 PM »
I have been in Yamanashi for over 2 months and have been eager to get back into my favorite hobby.  Is there any interest in possibly playing regularly?

I am a competitive player who also enjoys casual formats and have a few EDH(commander decks) with me.  My wife also plays although less competitively then me but she also likes casual formats.

I am assuming that you found the old threads about this. The only people I know who are still here are Amanda, Chris, JD and Paul.
I am sure one of them will chime in soon enough.

Me and my wife play at home.  We don't really get out that much, so not sure we'd be able to play with you   :oops:

I'm the Amanda Fred mentioned. There used to be a group that would meet once a week, and hold the occasional draft, but last summer a bunch of the group left and it kind of died.

I didn't attend the group very regularly, usually only for the occasional draft.  I am normally happy to play, but cannot commit to doing so on a regular basis.  I also don't have any decks.

Thanks for the responses.  Maybe sometime we can all meetup and play.  I found a few local shops that do weekly tournaments so I will hopefully be able to get to some of them.  In the future would anyone be interested in a draft/casual game if we gave everyone enough notice?

I would love to do an occasional draft.  That is pretty much what I did with the previous group.  Someone would usually buy a box or two and we'd all buy packs off of that person and then play.

Where are you living? If you're close to Yamanashi-shi and we could do it near here, it's certainly a possibility.

Yeah, we used to play in Kai on a weekly basis for some time.
I've always been pretty casual and not really interested in buying new sets though...

I am in the Navy and I play quite a bit online, and goto the Grand Prixs when they are here. I don't know of any place local, but am interested if anyone knows of a place.

There are a few, feel free to PM for and I can fill you in.

Both my wife and I enjoy a good Grand Prix, Are you heading out to the next one? Kobe if I recall correctly.

I'm JD, I was a dci judge a long time ago, and have about 18,000 cards collecting dust upstairs.  I rarely look at the forum anymore so I only just now saw this thread.  I live in Kai shi along with Paul.  I don't buy new cards anymore as it's just too expensive to keep up with the trends, so competition is out, but I'll play casual with you anytime.
