TGDRT #23: Magic, Drafting & Updates

Episode #23 is live!

Dirk shares his first ‘Magic’ drafting experience, and why the game and format now has its hooks into him. He and Jon then step back and evaluate the drafting mechanic and ponder whether the reason why it works is BECAUSE of a steep learning curve. They then go on to discuss the recent re-release of ‘Age of Empires 2’ and ‘War of the Roses’ before providing brief updates as to what’s new with ‘At the Gates’ and ‘Tomorrow’.

I was worried Dirk wouldn’t enjoy his Magic drafting expereince, as it’s one of those things you either love it or absolutely hate it. I’m glad that he had fun, because while there’s an incredibly steep learning curve, if you can get up over the top there’s some great gameplay to be found at the peak.

  1. Dirk says he can no longer playing Rise of Nations on his current system? Hasn’t he read my excellent guide to Rise of Nations on Windows 8? 🙂
