About Magic:

Magic: The Gathering (MTG) is a strategy card game first published in 1993 and published by Wizards of the Coast. Since it's introduction, MTG has become a mainstay of gaming conventions throughout the US.

In a common game of MTG, each player takes on the role of a Planeswalker, a magic-wielding being, with the ultimate goal of reducing your opponent to 0 life. Using their own deck of 60 cards, players use different types of mana, magic, creatures, artifacts, and more to build up armies, create defenses, and attack your opponent to ultimately win the game.

 

 

RPGs

We frequently have several RPGs scheduled for the weekend! Sign ups will be available at the convention if you'd like to guarantee a space for you in a certain game. Any and all experience levels are welcome.
