Every once in a while I come across something that gives me a bit of a chuckle, whether it's because it's funny itself or because it reminds me of how I used to be. These days I buy my boosters by the case and treat the cards like inventory as soon as they're out of the wrapper. But it wasn't always that way. I remember Christmas morning splitting a booster box of Mercadian Masques or Unglued with my brother felt like a big deal. Some people still feel like that. I came across this Amazon review and it brought me back to a lot of Christmas mornings from my past. Maybe I'll go bust a box just for nostalgia's sake. I may even keep some of the cards and play with them.
No, probably not that. Let's not go crazy.
I enjoy the sentiment a lot. Pro tip for the rest of you- if you don't want people to think you use illicit drugs, insisting repeatedly that you do not use illicit drugs despite no one asking whether you did or not is probably not the way to go about it. This one goes out to all of you lovers of cardboard crack.
So how about it? Got any Magic-related Christmas (or Hannukah, or Kwanzaa, or Wookiee Life Day) memories? Did an entire booster box feel like a big deal? How about a Starter deck in your stocking? A pack at the grocery store? Leave it in the comments and let's see who was spoiled as a kid and who did what I did and mowed lawns for a whole summer to buy a display box of Fourth Edition Starter Decks (I needed lands, OK?)
