Day 175 of 362

Wow... that was a long night (and a very short nap)...

Got home last night (this morning) at 2:30AM. I promptly went to bed, only to wake up at 6:30AM as we have a bit of shopping to do before we open at 11:00AM. It takes a toll on me, but I don't really mind.

We had fun at Friday Night Magic last night, and then the Gophers weren't in the mood to stop, so we held an after-FNM event last night that ran kind of late. I'll be honest, the after events are usually more fun than the actual FNM events. Most of that is due to an air of greater casuality. We're not really playing for much (usually packs) and it seems to make things relax a bit. There's more table talk and more giving each other rafts of poopage than in the FNM events. The after-FNM seem more fun because we act more like good friends having a great time, and that's what our hobby, and our business model, is all about...

Games are meant to be played... with friends... laughing... joking... having a good time.

So get together with some friends and see what we mean... and if you're not having fun, then you're doing it wrong... =)

  1. The after-drafts are definitely more of a blast than the regular FNM. I look forward to them even though I have the prospect of only a couple of hours sleep that night.

    I really liked how Ash said how genuinely fun the draft was.
