Playing Magic – the Gathering can be quite the learning curve. The first few days of staring at those cards can often be frustrating, because it is not easy to decipher what each one means. Everything is jumbled, with the only colors and depictions on the cards distinguishing them. However, a bit of research, some reading, and a bit of patience can open up a whole new world for card gamers.
Magic: The Gathering started as a simple card game that was only playable by offline means. Now it is possible to buy a gigantic starter kit, which includes physical cards, rule books, and digital editions for computers, iPads and other devices. Magic 2015 will be available as traditional cards, on the Xbox, PC; iOs and Android. They will also be available on Amazon Kindle Fire devices.
The goal of this game is not to bring about a few improvements from Magic 2014, but to change the way players view this card game. This is a perfectly refined, thoroughly enjoyable card game that has to be played before it can be judged.
The model for collecting debts is completely changed for this game, which allows players to build a deck from scratch. In the past, players had to choose from pre-arranged decks, but this offers greater flexibility. It means that, after understanding the game, players can pin point cards that suit their playing style to the fullest.
There is exclusive access to some of the cards from the upcoming Magic 2015 Core Card Set. This set is going to come out late in the summer, with around 270 cards expected. All the cards have been specially designed and crafted, ensuring that they add a new dimension to this game.
All of the depth and excitement from the 2013 and 2014 editions of Magic: The Gathering has been retained for this version. Many yearly updates have the problem of eliminating as many good aspects as they do problems, but that is not the case with this game.
Physical vs. Digital -
A beginner might want to start out by playing the game in a physical setting, with fellow Magic enthusiasts as opponents. After getting to grips with the rules, game play and different types of decks, the digital edition opens up a whole new world in this unusual card game.
