Ten Packs: A Gatecrash Draft Strategy Guide

Pro Tour Champion Luis Scott-Vargas, Pro Tour Top Eighter Melissa DeTora, Magic Hall of Famer Raphael Levy, and Pro Tour Gatecrash Champion Tom Martell each examine ten packs of Gatecrash as if they were each the first packs opened in a high level competition.

Product Description:
There are many authoritative books on card games and chess, but only a handful on the dozens of other games known to mankind. This excellent handbook by R. C. Bell is a basic reference to board and table games from around the world, and one of the two or three finest books ever written on the subject. Originally published in two volumes in the 1960's, it is now available for the first time in a corrected, one-volume edition.
Mr. Bell's encyclopedic work provides the rules and methods of play for 182 different games: Ma-jong, Hazard, Wei-ch'I (Go), backgammon, Wari, Continental draughts, Pachisi, Japanese chess, Bidou, Domino Loo, Cribbage, and many others. Volume one is divided into chapters devoted to race games, war games, games of position, Mancala games, dice games, and domino games; volume two follows the same arrangement and then proceeds to games with numbers, card games requiring boards, and games requiring manual dexterity. Additional information is furnished on making boards and pieces, and on gaming-counters.
Game players, toymakers, and historians of culture will welcome this guided tour of games from Egypt, Meso-America, the Orient, India, Persia, Rome, Africa, Victorian England, and many other societies. Over 300 illustrations, both photographs and line drawings, add an illuminating counterpoint to the text.

Magic The Gathering Strategy Guide 1: How to Draft: Take your game to the next level with this intermediate step-by-step player's guide (Crystal Ball Magic)

By Todd Rosen

Released: 2018-12-03
Kindle Edition (50 pages)

Magic The Gathering Strategy Guide 1: How to Draft: Take your game to the next level with this intermediate step-by-step player s guide (Crystal Ball Magic)
 
Product Description:
Are you an intermediate Magic: The Gathering player looking to hone your drafting skills?

Fed up of getting half way through a draft only to find your picks dry up, and you just can't work out why?

This systematic, step-by-step strategy guide is the first in a series of self help tutoring manuals by Todd Rosen. In under a year, Todd taught himself the rules of the game, and then elevated himself from FNM chump to genuine GP contender.

How did he do it?

By learning from the best. Hour upon hour spent watching Twitch streams of pros playing all different formats, including sealed, draft, standard and modern. Yet more hours spent practising against friends and foes at his local game store, and later on, further afield at PPTQ and GP level competitions. And let's just say a few more hours on MTGO, grinding leagues against other players from all over the world.

If you follow the advice in this book, you will improve at the game you love. That is a guarantee. All it takes is hard work, concentration, and adaptation. Be prepared to rethink some of the seemingly obvious decisions you make while drafting. Be prepared to still lose along the way. It's a long road to the top, and even the best players lose to variance. That's part of what makes Magic: The Gathering such a fascinating strategy game that we all love to play and watch.

Enjoy the book, enjoy Magic, and enjoy the rest of the Crystal Ball Magic series, available at www.crystalballmagic.wordpress.com.
