The Collectible Card Games Thread – Ask You Anything

Welcome to the *CG thread, where we talk all manner of Card Games – Collectible, Trading, Living, and otherwise! Feel free to chat amongst yourselves about the card games you’re playing or anything card game-related that strikes your fancy.

I wanted to take some time this week and get an idea from you all about what you’ve been liking about this series of posts and about CCGs in general. We’re a little over 20 threads in, and I’ve talked in a pretty wide range from the overall dynamics of card games, to the fiddly inner workings of what makes them tick, to the more social/gamey aspects of the medium. But I’d also like to get a feel for what you want out of this thread and what’s connected.

My questions to you:

What draws you to CCGs? What do you feel like is the “hook” that keeps you coming back?

How “into” CCGs are you? How regularly do you play? How much time do you spend finding more information about them?

What have you enjoyed from these threads?

Are there any topics you’d like me to cover? Or anything you want me to come back to in greater detail?

Also, I’m thinking of moving these from an “every week” to “every other week” but if anyone wanted to jump in with their own take on games or on a broader “Tabletop Games” thread in the off-weeks, I’d be cool with that.

Or, as always, feel free to talk about anything going on with you in the world of *CGs.
