For Its 25th Anniversary, Magic: The Gathering Returns To Its Roots

Welcome back to Dominaria! For those who don’t know where that is, Dominaria is a fictional plane in the world of Magic: The Gathering, the most successful and popular collectible trading card game. In the lore of the game, it’s the first world where planeswalkers, who can control and shape reality using magic as well as travel to other planes, arose. The game’s fame has fueled an intense speculation among longstanding players and collectors as the new set, titled “Return to Dominaria,” is teased.

Perhaps a little too famously! The new release of cards has already been the subject of a spoiler leak online. Wizards of the Coast, creative directors of Magic, have acknowledged the leak and clarified some of the details. Basically all the leak revealed was some new game mechanics, the number of cards in the set, and other statistics. Most fans give a collective shrug to spoilers, since they’re going to find out anyway.

Having launched in 1994, the fantasy card game is nearing its 25th anniversary – and the game’s makers are planning a huge blowout celebration. Among the many special events Wizards of the Coast has planned, they’ll be releasing stories set within the game’s universe in podcast form. And in a surprise announcement, Richard Garfield, one of the game’s original creators who had since moved on to other endeavors, has agreed to come back on board with the company to guide creative direction.

“Return to Dominaria” is scheduled for release in mid-April, 2018.


Canadian Social Gaming Startup Is Very Successful

Social gaming seems to be all the rage these days. There is a new social gaming company pooping up every day. It is an understatement to say that the social gaming industry has become extremely competitive. This is because of the large number of companies that are battling for a share of this lucrative industry. One of the social gaming companies that has taken the industry by storm since its 2011 launch has been Boom Gaming. It was created by David and Terry Debono. The company is currently headquartered in Kitchener, Ontario.

 

There have been many theories as to why Boom Gaming has been able to take off when so many other social gaming platforms go out of business relatively quickly. One of the reasons that many players use the service is the wide variety of games that are available to play. Players also enjoy the chat feature which allows them to interact with each other while they are playing. This is an essential element of the social gaming experience.

 

Another key factor that has enabled Boom Gaming to achieve such great success in such a short period of time is the amount of ways that you can play games. For example, you can log in from your Android or iOS device. You can also go through Facebook or visit the Boom Gaming website. The Debono brothers believe that accessibility is important for any social gaming site to achieve a high level of popularity. They plan on increasing the number of available games very soon.
