While building the arcade game Magic: the Gathering -- Armageddon I, along with most of the team, spent a lot of time playing the card game Magic: the Gathering. A lot of time. For those not familiar with Magic, Richard Garfield created the modern interpretation of collectible card game when he created Magic in 1993. It is a wonderful game and one that I still enjoy playing when I get the chance (which unfortunately isn't often).

A downside of Magic is that you accumulate a ton of cards. A few weeks ago we were cleaning the garage and I decided it was finally time for the collection to go. Having neither the time nor patience to eBay the valuable ones as singles, I sent the most valuable 200 or so to Card Kingdom in Seattle. Huge shout out to Card Kingdom for having a really well designed site, clear instructions, easy submission process, and rapid turnaround. Certainly I could have made more money off of eBay, but the time savings was dramatic.
