The next generation of this popular game is from Microprose they have released a new version with two translations that coincide with the same game, it may seem that this popular game will grow even more now that it is moving from the printed version to a electronic medium.
For those who are not familiar with this game, the card version go’s like this, you and your opponent play they role of wizards and in your hands you have a deck of magical cards that consist of powerful creatures, magical spells, and lands rich with mana. The more land you dominate and poses the more mana or (magical energy) you gain which means the more powerful your spells will become.
With Microprose’s new version you are able to execute two types of game play, which are duel or campaign, in duel mode you can match your custom built decks against a computer opponent and you can choose from 60 pre-built decks which makes for some serious game play. In the campaign mode it will allow you a bit more variety, in this case the well known planes-walker Arzakon will try and dominate and take control of the land (Shandalar) and it is up to you to stop him in his tracks. The game is just like previous gathering games with a bit more excitement, you can travel through the land of Shandalar, walk through towns, explore old ruins and so forth. The major difference with this version is that instead of slaying dragons and wizards you can actually challenge them to a game of magic cards and if you win you get to add more magic gathering cards to your deck, and if you loose, then you forfeit one of your magic cards.You can learn more about the magic gathering card game and how and when to play those vital cards when you need to.
