Magic the Gathering

Magic the Gathering is a battle between wizards, known as planeswalkers, who employ spells, artifacts, and creatures in order to defeat their opponents. Although the original concept of the game drew heavily from the motifs of traditional fantasy role-playing games such as Dungeons & Dragons, Magic has substantially more cards and more complex rules than many other card games. Prizes for Magic the Gathering at Comicpalooza will be provided by Ettin Games.
