My brother wanted me to get Steam so I could play A Mighty Quest For Epic Loot, a game he was excited about. So, towards the end of February I downloaded Steam and went looking around the free games. I saw this thing called Infinity Wars, a dTCG. I didn't read much, but being into MtG I figured I would try it out. It was getting late and somehow I knew that if I downloaded the game I would be up all night, and I had to get up in the morning so I thought I should just put it off.
I pulled an all-nighter and played through almost all of the campaign.
Over the next week or so I pulled a few more all-nighters and became obsessed with the game (did a little of A Mighty Quest as well, but I dropped that after those first few weeks). I dove into the lack of lore and started a fanfic, which I shelved later but am about to get back to.
Simultaneous turns makes this game more exciting and interesting than possibly any other game. The art, the community, just makes it so much better.
Infinity Wars is what makes going back to play MtG with my friends boring. It also is what makes all of those mana floods sad, as I turn 5 lands and say "Trading Post." It has also introduced me to Star Trek (beyond the new movies, which I'm not sure count), made me a better TCG player all around, and has opened up new dimensions and worlds for my imagination to play around in.
I made my brother try Infinity Wars and he plays regularly too (though he's not a fan of PvP, but that's another story altogether).
Keep doing what you do, Lightmare.
