Magic the Gathering
With the creation of Magic: The Gathering™, Wizards of the Coast introduced an entirely new game genre. Combining the fascination of trading cards with the excitement of fantasy games, Magic draws it players into a universe of infinite possibilities. Prepare to meet the challenges you will encounter in the strategic world of trading card games.
In Magic, you play a powerful wizard battling for control of a sphere of Dominia. Drawing from your deck of illustrated cards, you combat other wizards by summoning creatures and casting spells. By trading cards with other players, you can create a stronger deck to defeat your opponents. And the more you play and trade, the more Dominia's ever-changing adventures will intrigue you. In Magic: The Gathering, you'll never play the same game twice!
