It's in the Cards...

I've been in a fairly cranky mood lately. I'm out of school and missed my opportunity to enroll in June summer classes, my job hunt keeps coming up short, and my bus pass expired and I haven't had a chance to get a new one yet so I've been cooped up in the house for a couple weeks.

So I decided to cheer myself up today. Since my sister got me back into the game recently, I went out and bought myself some new Magic cards for the first time since 8th grade (up 'til now I'd been using my old 10-year-old cards and some my sis' gave me). I don't plan on doing so often 'cause it's an expensive hobby to keep up, but I thought it would be fun to indulge myself for once.

And I got a Hobbit card!!! OMG! It was the one card in the set I wanted the most, and there it was right when I opened the pack!

I'm so happy, I could eat lunch. :)

http://www.magicworkstation.com/

It's a free program that's a database of every MTG card evar XD

And let's you build decks and play against ppl online :D

It's a tabletop, so you have to manually declare attackers and tap cards like you do irl (i.e. there's no rules engine, it's just a table to play on in cyberspace :D)
