Available 01 February 2013

Magic: The Gathering (Magic) was first introduced to the market by Wizards of the Coast back in 1993. The game is designed for two or more players each using a deck of printed cards - although in more modern times the game has added the option of virtual cards which can be played over the Internet. The new Gatecrash series focuses on five guilds; the Orzhov Oppression, Dimir Dementia, Gruul Goliaths, Boros Battalion and Simic Synthesis - each having its own intro pack...

Each of the new intro packs for Gatecrash features a ready-to-play 60-card deck which includes one foil premium card, two sealed 15-card booster packs, a strategy insert, and a Magic "learn to play" guide.

Not only will these new packs appeal to gamers who have been there since the start, but it also offers a leg-up for new gamers who may have been put off in the past by how complex everything appeared. Yes, it's not simple to jump straight in, but that's the beauty of this card game. While there is an element of luck, strategy and experience help to ensure you gain the advantage over your fellow gamers.

As you'd expect, Wizards of the Coast has spared no expense - the cards are as lush and beautifully designed and illustrated as fans have come to expect.

These new cards are well worth picking up and adding to your collection - or giving as a gift to someone as an introduction to playing the game.
