The Magic

I have many other interests, and rather than create static pages for them all, I’m going to be relying on the blog structure of categories and tags to keep it all organized. You should be able to find information about the games I like to play, the music I listen to, my enjoyment of gardening, my travels, and more. I’ll go ahead and list a few things right here, though.

Favorite Board & Card Games:

  • Magic: the Gathering I sell my extra rares via CardShark.com; go ahead and check out my inventory! Also check out the magic cards that I have designed myself, using Magic Set Editor. I’ve crafted a set called “Planesthief” based on combining the various guild game mechanics in the recent Return to Ravnica and Gatecrash sets. And I’ve got a start on an “un” set, called “Unprinted“, if you’re up for a laugh. If you are a fan of the “Magic: The Amateuring” podcast, I’ve issued a challenge to them, called “Selfie Planeswalkers“.
