Generation Decks: The Unofficial History of Gaming Phenomenon Magic the Gathering (Paperback)

    Usually Ships in 1-5 Days


    The incredible true story behind the global gaming phenomenon

    Generation Decks tells the story of the mould-breaking fantasy card game Magic: The Gathering.

    The brainchild of misfit maths genius Richard Garfield, Magic combines fiendishly complex gameplay with collectability. When it came out in the early '90s it transformed the lives of gamers who had longed for a game that combined challenging mechanics and kick-ass artwork with a chance to connect and compete with likeminded people.

    Titus Chalk's tale is part biography, charting the author's own relationship with the game, part history, and part love letter to the card game that made it cool to be a geek.
