Cats Den


The standard format of the game will be used in play. Prizes will be awarded.

In the game, Magic: The Gathering, each participant plays as a powerful wizard known as a “planeswalker” as they try to defeat their opponents and ultimately win the game using a combination of luck and skill. Competitors possess cards, which represent different weapons that can be used against their opponents. Players start off with 20 life points that diminish as certain cards are played against them.

The game was created by Richard Garfield and released in August 1993. Some of the awards the game is accredited with include The Mensa Select Award, being inducted into the Games Magazine Games Hall of Fame, and several Origins awards.
