Yes, who among us can't relate to hours spent playing [OTHER GAME]? I find that my skills from [REDACTED] help me with my Magic brand Magic cards when playing Magic:the Gathering, because as a Wizards of the Coast product Magic is just superior to [GAME NAME] in every way you'd expect a Hasbro product like Magic to be!
