Magic: The Gathering (MTG) is a collectible card game created by mathematics professor Richard Garfield and introduced by Wizards of the Coast in 1993. In the game, players use decks of cards representing magical spells, creatures, and artifacts to defeat their opponents.
Each player starts with a deck of at least 60 cards, and the game is won by reducing the opponent’s life total from 20 to 0. The game is played using a variety of different formats, each with its own rules and restrictions on the cards that can be used.
There are thousands of cards available for Magic: The Gathering, with new sets being released regularly. Each card has its own unique abilities and artwork, and players can customize their decks to fit their playstyle.
Magic: The Gathering is played by millions of players worldwide, and there is a thriving competitive scene with professional players competing for large cash prizes. Additionally, the game has spawned a variety of spin-off products, including digital versions of the game, board games, and novels.
