If you’ve played Magic: The Gathering, you know that it’s a hell of a lot of fun until it’s not. And you know exactly when it stops being fun— when it becomes too expensive to build better decks, too expensive to keep up with friends and locals who spend way too much money on the game, and when it becomes too much of a pain in the ass to keep up with new releases. With the release of five new Commander decks, you might want to pick the game up again, since the recently introduced Commander model is meant for fun, equal, casual play. Don’t worry about whether your opponent has some rare should-have-been-banned card that will wipe you out in one move, just sit down, pour the Mountain Dew and play.
Add this to your Christmas list this year: The Walking Dead version of Monopoly. Sure, it’s pretty much just like regular Monopoly except for the properties and pieces, but maybe in the process, someone might end up with a crossbow bolt in the arm. Never know.
