Was off doing dad stuff.

Which apparently means that now I have to take the kids to the friendly local gaming store tomorrow and set them up with the Pokemon cards.  Assuming that the FLGS sells Pokemon, of course.  I can’t imagine that they wouldn’t.

PS: Nah, this doesn’t bug me.  These are my and my wife’s children; I more or less assumed from their birth that eventually we’d be picking out which card crack they’d be getting hooked on. I’m mildly surprised it isn’t Magic: The Gathering, but then they’re young.  There’s plenty of time for the hard stuff later.

PPS: If this works out we’re going to use Pokemon Go to get them out of the house more. I already had to run around all over the place just setting it up; it really does look like a sneaky way to make me exercise.  Ach, well, the weather’s finally getting nice.

    Good ole’ Magic…

    I remember when that game first came out…we picked up the starter decks, and built them, and then we got bored. My brother created the Deck of Frustration, a deck solely designed to prevent the opponent from winning, but without a single offensive card. He tried it out, and it worked. His opponent became almost frustrated enough to resort to physical violence.

    A few weeks after that, we took all our Magic cards to the rifle range and used them for target pasties. Shooting Magic cards is surprisingly fun. What was even more fun was showing other Magic enthusiasts the bullet-hole-ridden cards and enjoying the look of shock and horror on their faces.

    Waaaay more fun that the game itself.
