Episode 53 – Would you like to play a game?

Once again, spoiler season is upon us and once again, Magic delivers.  Personally, I always expect that maybe this time I won’t be as excited for the new mechanics, the new art, the Thing That Seems Too Good To Be True But Actually Isn’t, and the Thing That Doesn’t Look That Good Yet But Then OMG This Is Exactly What Was Needed In My Bew 42 land Swans Kiki Jund Affinity deck.  And yet, I’m always excited.  Every time.  That’s why I’m still here.

And, to be 100% serious, is actually Important.  To have something that lets us unplug and unwind.  To give us reasons to go out and meet new people and have new experiences.  To give us all a shared language that’s one of happiness.  So yeah, we get a little political in this one, and a little philosophical too.  Because play and rest and happiness are all just as important as the Big Important Things that might be otherwise occupying our time and minds and hearts.  If you feel like listening to us talk about a game for 90 minutes is a guilty pleasure, let Amie and I remind that there is no such thing and take a well deserved break with us.
