CCC Says: "Recently, I’ve started getting back into card games. I’ve not actively engaged in card games in a long while, but over the past couple of months I’ve started to rekindle an interest in them, thanks to my piqued interest in Blizzard’s card collecting game Hearthstone. I began to reminisce about the fun I used to have with the Pokémon and Yu-Gi-Oh card games of old, as well as the recent introduction of Magic: The Gathering into my life at the end of 2012. As a substitute to not being able to play Hearthstone at the time, I bought Magic 2014 on Steam during the Winter Sale. I also bought it as some sort of means to get into the flow of digital card gaming, and to refresh myself with some of the basic card game tropes of which Magic and Hearthstone seem to share. Now that Hearthstone’s in Open Beta, all that practicing (and a lot of trial and error) seems to have paid off slightly."
