“Magic: The Gathering,” commonly referred to as Magic.
The game, which began in 1993, is a complex strategy game made up of spells, creatures and the resources needed to power them, all printed on collectable cards, Richter-Freund said.
“Some people spend money putting rims on their cars; I spend money on Magic cards because that’s what brings me joy,” he said. “I used to work a kind of crappy job, and after every paycheck I would buy new cards for my deck. It was a little bit of motivation.”
Michael Dunagan, the club’s president, said that while he founded the club for enthusiasts of all collectible card games, at the group’s Friday night meetings gamers rarely play anything but Magic."
