Its been twenty years since I first got pulled into trading card games – time does fly when you’re having fun. Like many thirty-somethings, Magic: The Gathering was my first “poison”, followed by a little-known "customisable card game" Star Wars (by Decipher Inc).

A dozen or so card games later (mostly of the trading or collectible kind), I decided to pull the stops on what has been my longest interest thus far. I quit Magic for good in 2011, having decided that to even keep up with the game on a strictly casual basis (read: once a week meetups with friends, two to three hours tops on Sundays), had become nearly impossible.

(Oh, that and I distinctly remember me obsessing over Fantasy Flight Games’ Blood Bowl: Team Manager Card Game boardgame then. Touchdowns, Skaven, Orcs and Elves, oh my what a game!)
