Magic: The Gathering is the first, and most widely played, collectible trading card game. Players take on the role of Planeswalkers – powerful mages who battle others for glory, knowledge and conquest. Each player controls an arsenal of weapons, which includes spells, creatures, and artifacts gathered from a vast multiverse of unique fantasy worlds. With over 10,000 different cards available, Magic offers an unrivaled depth of game play with many levels of choice and customization for its players. The cards feature unique illustrations by top fantasy artists inspired by familiar elements of myth and legend. These elements weave together to provide a strategically rich and satisfying game play experience.
