I went to the M12 release party at Armored Gopher. I chose my colors poorly, didn't get much good stuff, and got stomped horribly, finishing last out of 28 people. I got a pretty good door prize, though. I'm reasonably happy about that. I'm a bit less pleased about the fact that I couldn't find anyone who'd play casually with me. I stood around watching people trading and playing, absorbing a little more knowledge about the card environment. If I can find people I can play with casually and have it be fun, I'm likely to stay involved with this for a while. If I can't, I'm going to get tired of this and become more serious about selling my collection.
