Friday nights are magic

Friday nights can be eventful even if your not a party, pub, nightclub person.

This Friday evening having been asked by Andy I went to his and my 1st Magic The Gathering card competition in the Chimera shop, where you hand over money for sealed packs of cards and then make your own deck there and then to play with.
I have played Magic with friends only, well 2 friends before and like most people acquired 1000's of cards in a fad that lasted about 2 years before I stopped and lost touch, so I did not know what to expect.
Andy started the evening with 7 players, unfortunately a odd number, fortunately for me 6 out of the 7 players me included in that 6 had also not played for a while and like me had never played in tournaments, so apart the one player that travelled around the Midlands playing in tournaments we were all on level playing field.
With a bit of luck like in all games I managed to win enough games to get to the playoff final with unsurprisingly the regular tournament player as my opponent, he trounced me destroying me in record time to win, still I came second so I should be proud of that, and I won even more cards as my prize and enjoyed the evening as well.

Andy is now trying to fix up regular tournaments, I think I may well give them a go for while.
