The original collectable card game (CCG), where players purchase packs of randomized cards and assemble decks used to compete against others. Created by the Washington-based company Wizards of the Coast, Magic: The Gathering achieved great popularity in the early-to-mid 1990s, and paved the way for other CCGs such as Legend of the Five Rings and Pokemon. Magic: The Gathering still remains popular to this day, although not to the same level as it used to.
The player's Magic: The Gathering collection contained over a thousand cards.

Strictly for the socially inept. Magic: The Gathering is occasionally used in conjunction with the Yorkshire word chuffing:
My mom approves of Magic: the Gathering, it keeps me away from girls.

I reckon this dork is going to offer me his Magic: the Chuffing Gathering Black Lotus for $200.

A card game where the winner is decided by who can cough up the most money to go to a comic book store and buy the grossly overpowered older cards. The #3 cause of prolonged virginity in 20+ year-old males, only behind Everquest and Dungeons and Dragons.
I play Magic. I also cry when I masterbate.

In my opinion the game is fun until you det good at it, then it's really boring. It is really nerdy and is a fucking money toilet. This is from a former player. Most players of Magic are either gay or can't get any women, like my brother. Not starting Magic is a good idea.
Hey Josh, I started playing Magic and my girlfrend dumped me but at least i can whack off to my new Glissa Sun-Seeker.

A card game produced by Wizards of the Coast for proud nerds to play everywhere. Requires mass amounts of money to win, and sometimes ends up in nerdfights, which are slightly more dangerous than sorrority girl ticklefights. There's nothing wrong with the game if you're into that sort of thing, but most people on UrbanDictionary would gladly kick in the face of anyone seen carrying around a deck.
Nerd 1: Hey, let's go play Magic and pick up some fine ladies!
Nerd 2: Awww riiiight.

A card game, played by spending lots of money on pretty pieces of cardboard.
