Learning the Ropes

I am still adjusting the advertising life and getting use to how things work.  Today I learned to play the game Magic the Gathering.  In the advertising world this is called product familiarity or research, to the rest of the working world it is called dicking around.  The reason I am learning to play this game is it is one of the core products for our clients...I am not going to say what other products they have as I am sure I will soon be posting about these Adventures as well.
Anyways back to the game.  Manny aka "Manchild" was kind enough to let me borrow one of his pre-made decks to teach me the mechanics.  This is a whole new world for me and I must say I am a little addicted.  I now know what they mean when they refer to this game as "Cardboard Crack". 
One of the coolest things I learned today; there are powers and creatures that can bring cards in your "Graveyard" back to I could have used these powers about a hundred years ago.
Although I was using a pre-constructed deck and I learned about the graveyard tricks, I was no match for the Manchild today. 
I must go now and perfect my game.
