The Mana Pool
Join Brian, Mike, Dirk and Chewie as they discuss all things Magic: The Gathering. Since there are plenty of tournament and strategy podcasts out there, we've decided to focus on the fun of the game in all its many forms, from Prereleases to multiplayer free-for-alls to whatever else we can come up with. Give us a listen!

Episode 123 - Backdoor Shenanigans

Hey there, fellow geeks. This is Dirk. I got roped into writing the show notes again since Brian didn't feel like getting around to them (Brian: hey! I'm a busy guy, what with all of this.. stuff... and other stuff!) So anyway, this wasn't a shorter episode, so let's get to it.

 

We have the usual opening; we're still brought to you by Cardshark and all of that jazz. We've gotten some emails. Brian says a special thank you to those that have congratulated him on his proven ability to reproduce. There were some other opening parts, but none that really excited me.

 

Then we're off to the best part of the episode: the actual content! In this one, staying true to our commitment to report on games of all shapes, sizes, types, and historical significance, we go over some card games from Brian's past. He and I played a few games of Lord of the Rings TCG, so we go over how the game works and he runs through how the games turned out. It was actually a lot of fun to step back and give this game another go, so listen in. Then he and Mike talked about the Star Wars CCG, but that's their thing- I kind of almost fell asleep while they were playing.

 

Chewie, the most quiet member of the cast. Gets in a few words in Chewie's Corner. He goes over video games and other things that have struck his fancy. There's some talk about Magic in there, but don't worry; we're over it quickly. Finally, we wrap up with our standard last segment and close it out.

 

You're in for a treat this time. Pick up your headphones or whatnot and turn up the volume, because The Mana Pool is on- We're Game(c)!
