Frankly, I could ONLY play Magic on a four-bit screen.

I picked up the old Microprose Magic games for the PC for cheap, and found myself enjoying it a lot more than I expected. The variety of cards made for a nicely complicated challenge, and the fact that ALL the cards were right there for you to examine and choose from was the deciding factor. You could play right away without having to hunt through eight thousand booster packs for the three cards you needed.

(Alternatively, there were single-player modes that started you with a very basic deck and challenged you to go out and find better cards, and tournaments where everyone started with random cards.) Fun stuff, and I was disappointed that the recent "Encylopedia" version had no one-player modes -- and also disappointed that the single-player is unplayable on my Athlon 1300 due to speed issues. I'd need to jack it down to about 500 MHz to slow it down to semi-normal speed, and I hate futzing around with the bios more than I need to.

I played Monster Rancher 1 and 2 until my fingers bled, but I never got into Pokemon, largely because I don't own an N64 or a Game Boy. My wife has the latter, but I don't use it. (Now, SNK vs. Capcom: Cardfighter's Clash on the NeoGeo Pocket Color... mmmmm. THERE's a portable card game.)

ObPokemonSnap: If you enjoy the photograph-interesting-critters aspects of Pokemon Snap, check out Fatal Frame next month on PS2. Think "Pokemon Snap meets Resident Evil" and you're on the right track. Zombies and spectres and mystically-charged cameras, oh my!

IIRC, there was an older Magic game that had all the cards, and was free. And had online play. I'd have to research that further, though.

The new Magic PC game also has online play, and it's free, but you have to pay for the digitized versions of the cards. Supposedly you can redeem the cards for real cards. I'm skeptical, and some interesting concerns have been raised regarding the game.

That's not entirely true. On a whim, while I had extra cash in my pocket, I've bought a couple sets of Pokemon cards. Keep in mind though, I have full intentions of reselling them on the net or to a card shop, which I should get to once I break a lazy streak.

Just to go along with the original topic, I've only played two pokemon games in my life. Those two being Pokemon Snap and some Pokemon game for the Gameboy, Red or Blue I'm assuming. Like the cards, I bought Snap on a whim, to have a game for my N64 which I bought on the same day. I'm damn close to beating it, but I eventually got sick of it and haven't played since.

What's the world coming to, when CRZ abandons the Pokemons in his sig box?

They fell out of the Lycos Top 50 for the first time since they started charting their most popular searches! But IT'S ONLY A COINCIDENCE!!!

Speaking of which, you did realize we sent you the Gameboy game so that you could import our Pokemon into Stadium and use them, right?

I'll try it this weekend. I promise.

You know, we could have this conversation in AIM if you were on, Rico.
