Editor’s Note: This is the beginning of a weekly column where our collectible card game expert, Jason Jarusinsky, will delve into, explore, and illuminate all aspects of the collectible card game world. Come on back every Wednesday to Chill With Some card Games!
The mission here at Engaged Family Gaming to make sure that we provide parents with the tools they need to be active participants in their children’s gaming. collectible card games like Magic: The Gathering and Pokemon are very popular and we don’t want parents to be left in the cold. This marks the beginning of a weekly column dedicated to demystifying the collectible card game (CCG) landscape.
I thought I would start by telling you a little bit about myself. I don’t have kids of my own yet, but I have been playing games for most of my life and have always had an interest in helping younger kids get into the games that I play.
Over the years I have played a TON of collectible card games (CCGS). I have played them all at one point or another from Pokemon and Yu-gi-oh to several games that never found a lot of success. Magic: the Gathering, however, has been the one game that I keep coming back to. I look forward to one day teaching my kids how to play. But, in the meantime, I’ll help other parents do it instead!
I will be covering a different topic about collectible card games each week. I’ve got tons of interesting topics lined up, but if there is something that you want me to cover please contact me.
Email me at CCG@engagedfamilygaming.com if you have specific questions you’d like me to write about!
Stay Frosty Everyone!
