Magic: The Gathering is the world's premier trading card game. It was the first of its kind, and it's still one of the best and the biggest.
In the Magic game, you play the role of a powerful wizard. Your deck of cards represents all the weapons in your arsenal: the spells you know and the creatures you can summon to fight for you.
Some people play Magic just for fun, coming up with great theme decks or funny combinations of cards to play against their friends. For other players, Magic is a highly competitive game of skill, with professional tournaments as their arena. To others still, Magic is all about collecting and trading cards that feature breathtaking original art from some of today's premier fantasy artists.
