Magic the Gathering Club

Time: Monthly on Fridays at Lunch

Do you like card games? Are you playing Hearthstone on your phone? Ok, let go of that phone, because Magic: The Gathering is 10 times better than that game, maybe the best game ever! We will practice the basics of magic, one-on-one and multiplayer games, improve our competitive strategy skills, and learn a lot of English vocabulary in the process. We'll see what the club members want - maybe we're just playing casual games at MAIA, or we can go to the card game stores in Worcester and Fitchburg to compete and even win some prizes! If you like strategy games in a fun fantasy environment, this club is for you. Magic: The party club meets in the cafeteria.
