Players of the famous Magic The Gathering card game spend coupious amounts of time and cash to create the perfect deck of cards. All for a chance to win cash prizes and “fame”, if you can call it that.
Like any sort of organized sport *snicker*, you’re not going to be respected until you have a documentary about the happenings between players and the impact it has on them.
Thankfully, two brave nerds, and fellow Magic The Gathering players, took it upon themselves to make such a documentary. Covering the “professional” tournament held from Sept. 2-4, 2011 in philadelphia, PA, Nathan Holt, his brother Ben, and friend Shawn Kornhauser filmed this weekend sausage fest.
Seriously! I didn’t see a single female player on the convention floor, somebody must have cast their cockblock card that weekend.
Regardless, this is a fan-effing-tastic short doc. It’s really fun to watch, even if you’re not a aren’t a Magic nerd.
Special thanks nerdbastards fan, Beth Kellner who found this gem of a video. Infinity fairies indeed.
