What are your views on card games and people who play them?
Posted 12/3/13
The title really speaks for itself. Just curious...

Also, if you are a card game player, do you hide the fact that you enjoy playing card games? Why or why not?

I really enjoy card games. I used to play a lot of Yu-Gi-Oh! and even a little Duel Masters, but now I really only play Magic and Yomi (if that counts). It's not something I hide, but I usually don't bring it up in conversation unless I have reason to believe the other person may also play. As for the games themselves, I really like the fact that everybody gets the opportunity to build their own unique decks. I'm not a competitive player, so deck building is more about the thematic value for me. Each of my decks has some sort of story or theme. My personal favorite is based around the idea of a group of human cultists who sacrifice themselves in order to summon powerful demons. The deck itself is very hit or miss, but playing it is incredibly satisfying since it feels like a real war is being waged between myself and my opponent.

I actually really started to get excited while I was typing that out, haha. If there is one thing I hate about card games, it's the cost. I've put quite a bit of cash into making my decks, and for that reason I do try to avoid trying new TCGs. I also think they're a fun, low key, social activity that can easily be enjoyed with a group of friends. My friends, and I will often catch-up over a few games of Magic when we're all back in our hometown.

Lots of my friends play Magic. Seems fun, just too much money required to not suck.

Just give me Dominion and I'll be happy.

Use to play pokemon and yugioh but the power creep killed it for me. Still play magic casually with friends all the time.

I personally love trading card games, but there's something of a curse with me...everytime I start playing and really enjoying a game, the company making the game ends it. >.< Although I do play a game of Pokemon with my cousin every now and then, all the other TCGs, like MegaMan: NT Warrior, Zatch Bell!, and InuYasha, all end up getting canned. I'd love to play Vanguard since I've got a few cards, but it'll be the same story. Lol.

Ah.

Well, I don't think anything of it. It's just like playing anything else in my eyes

I have never really played any card games seriously.

I did play Yu-Gi-Oh! with my little brother while he was growing up because he was into it. I doubt we ever played correctly however.

I don't think down on people who play them, why should I? If they are enjoying themselves why would it bother me? Just because i never personally got involved in them doesn't give me the right to judge.

I'm sure I could get into them if i sat down and had someone go into detail what was going on. I'd be willing to give it a shot.

I've loved every card game I've ever tried and I never worried about hiding it.

Throughout high school I played a lot of MTG, but never had a chance to play Pokemon or Yu-Gi-Oh!, unfortunately. I got really into the DBZ card game for a while and I'm sad that my cards burnt up when my mom's house burnt down. T-T

Lately I've been playing some Hearthstone and I really dig it. I'm sure I'd like it a lot more if more of my friends had access to the game.. I'm the only one among us that has it. (I'm antisocial, even in online games, so I tend to just play stuff with my friends).

It's a pretty peaceful, relaxing hobby and it's usually pretty easy to get along with fellow players. ^^

I was an anti-social type of guy for a while, but I had a friend drag me along to this group that plays magic, I ended up making friends with pretty much everyone there.
I think it's great fun, whether playing, or just chilling with the friends it helped you make if you're playing IRL.
