Yu-gi oh was epic during 2 year of play for a bunch of people, because it was easier to learn than Magic, but it gets boring afterward, from what I gather. I think it's barely popular anymore now too, which goes to show that Magic still rules all, despite being complicated for some people who are used to HP, atk and def with nothing else.

hmm, my area must be weird then, it has died off a little, but not *too* much, you just need to know who plays such. I have been an active Yugioh player for 9 years. Anywho, I like magic, but it just does not have that same value to me as ygo

I think I have forgotten how to play magic too O_O (btw, almost no one I know plays magic, and you get bullied more for magic than yugioh >.>) At least 10 people I know play yugioh

Pokémon too was pretty popular at my elementary school back in 2000ish.

I finally cleared my sig after 4 years you're happy now?

Ztrumpet: blue/white control decks are pretty strong right now, you should try putting some white in there.
Yeah, I was strongly considering doing either that or blue/black, but I decided to place my money elsewhere. :-\

Money was pretty much the reason i stopped playing tcgs. I love deck building and thus i like to have a large card pool to work with. As you can imagine, that gets pretty pricey. i think Magic has endured so long because thet are constantly changing what cards are legal, releasing new cards, and rereleasing old ones. They also try to keep some sense of balance within the game, and are constantly updating mechanics/rules, not so much with yu-gi-oh.

So yea, i still enjoy tcgs, i just wont spend anymore money on them :)

Yeah, money is a big problem if you want to play TCGs.  However, last night I bought a booster pack for $6, and inside was a foil Phyrexian Obliterator, worth $50.

Oh, I love playing Magic! I was just playing it recently with a friend who is a Magic fanatic. Since I'm too poor to buy a deck, he let me borrow one of his 10 or so decks to play. He was nice in teaching me how to play, but he creamed me every time, mainly because I was trying to play his blue/black decks like red decks (trying to kill him as fast as possible). As such, he advised me to get a red starter kit when I can buy cards.

one thing about Yu-Gi-Oh is that the show is REALLY slipping.. I miss the old days with Pegasus and Marik, I hate all this GX and 5Ds crap..

Sir, at some point over the summer, we must have a virtual Magic game over skype... And then, if you have any of the cards, a YGO game >:D

I refuse to play any sort of YGO.  Ever.
But I'd be perfectly open to playing MTG whenever you like.  Hit me up on IRC.

Heh, I still play YGO, but recently I have been limited to playing it on my GBC, DS, and an emulated Forbidden memories...

Qazz and I found a way to play each other virtually.  Is anyone else interested in trying it out?

I know that there is also a computer version with virtual cards, but I realize that you would have to buy the virtual cards or exchange your real cards. So a game over Skype sounds fun. Not that I have cards... :'(
