It actually all started with baseball cards when I was young. Most of the ones I got weren’t of huge players and weren’t worth anything… but I began to love collecting them. I went on and off collecting, but never lost the love of it. When I was in high school I was introduced to Star Wars, which I fell in love with, and shortly after that I discovered the Star Wars Collectible Card Game. I never was really that good at playing the game, but when my love of collecting was combined with my love of Star Wars, it created something in me that is still strong to this day. Throughout the years I have played and collected many more card games like Jedi Knights, LotR TCG, WoW TCG, Yu-gi-oh, Young Jedi, Pirates CSG, etc. Right now I have three games that are currently in my interest. Redemption TCG, Magic the Gathering, and Fight Klub. I’ve actually been playing Redemption for a few years now, and it just doesn’t grow old. Plus unlike other games I’m actually pretty good at it. I’ve even hosted many tournaments, and been to the National tourmanent once. Magic is more of a game to play with friends, and I haven’t collected it as much as other games, but I do find it fun. Fight Klub is a brand new game made by Decipher, the company that got me into this mess with Star Wars. It’s a game where you basically pick your favorite movie charater from the ones available, and match them against each other to see who wins. One of the differences about this game from all the others I’ve ever played is I was able to get in on it before the game was even finished being made by becoming a Founding Mentor. There are a lot of things that are different about this game also, such as the cards are only available online, and you have to be a member to order them. Of course at first that might not seem like a good thing, but it does provide a sense of community that other games might not. Also, you have to be invited to join (and I’m inviting everyone who reads this to go join right now, just say hostsofheaven sent you). Then, not only will you be a part of a community of gamers, but you will be a part of a game that is made for and by the gamers. That’s right, we also get input on the cards in the sets, as well as many other things. So, if you want more info, ask me, and if you’re interested, go join (just remember to tell them that hostsofheaven sent you!).
