A friend and I entered in our first Magic the Gathering tournament this past weekend. Both of us hadn’t touched Magic in many, many years. We thought it’d be a fun impromptu adventure.
We sat down with six others in a Mini-Masters game. Everyone was awesomely friendly.
I teared open my two booster packs, and rolled up the sleeves of my imaginary robe.
Time to sling some spells.
As I scanned the room for mana cards, a staff member walked up to me and said:
“Do you know how to play?”
Yes, Mr. Staff Member, I know how to play. If I didn’t, I would sit in the beginner area, and not at a tournament table. I don’t see you singling out any of the sea of men around me, some whom were as rusty as I was. You were trying to be nice, but you were very unhelpful in getting women, like me, interested in Magic again.
