This post will lead you to all the information you need to start playing Magic: The Gathering. I’m writing an article myself on how to play this amazing game, but it is still going to take a while before it’s done. So, what’s this all about? Well, yesterday, I was watching Boogie 2988 open some Return to Ravnica booster packs and came across an incredible video. Probably for being tired of people asking him to explain the game, he posted a link to a series of tutorial videos on how to play MTG. If you want to learn how to play the online version of the game, don’t worry, it has the exact same rules and cards. It’s the same game, except one is played with paper cards, while the other is played with digital ones.
The series is called Learn to Play Magic: The Gathering and is divided in several parts. A couple of nice fellas will explain to you the fundamental aspects of the game. After watching all the videos, you should be able to start playing this amazing TCG (Trading Card Game).
***IMPORTANT: I do not own these videos and had no participation in their making. These are official videos uploaded to YouTube by Wizards of The Coast.***
Part 1: Welcome to the Multiverse
Part 2: The Five Colors of Mana
Part 3: Game Zones and Parts of a Card
Part 4: Card Types
Part 5: Parts of a Turn
Part 6: The Next Step
On the description of every video, they tell you to visit http://www.wizards.com/magicdemo for more information. There, you’ll find a demo version of the game, to practice what you’ve just learned. They have also a .PDF with the rules of the game available for downloading.
