Magic as Garfield Intended: Smells Like 1994
Back when everyone was just starting to figure out this game called Magic: The Gathering, local game stores didn't exist, and we leaned on counters in comic and sports card shops, picking our own packs out of the booster box because you made your own luck
lthough it has been over two decades since Magic: The Gathering was released, the appeal of playing with the "original" sets from the first two years of the game continue to draw people into what's known as the Old School format.
It hasn't been quite a quarter of a century, but it's getting awfully close now; calling Magic an "old" modern game is becoming somewhat reasonable, as it predates even a classic-turned-mainstream such as Settlers of Catan.
