Magic: The Gathering – Complete Player’s Guide

I was out looking through the magazines at Chapters (opposite Mic Mac Mall, Dartmouth, NS) on Tuesday evening and noticed that Beckett have a Magic: The Gathering magazine out. Apparently, the last tine they published a MTG related magazine was 3 years ago. It looks like this new version my be the start of a new set of issues, judging by the request(s) for future content. Although, the publishers information appears to indicate that it will be published bi-anually.

If you want to take a look at it check out a ‘flick-through’ I did on video and posted to YouTube.

Harbourview Weekend Market

I took a trip down to Harbourview Weekend Market  http://www.harbourviewmarket.com/site/ this afternoon and I am pleased to report back that one of the vendors, Third Eye Blind Games and Collectibles, sells Magic: The Gathering cards. From what I could determine, Booster Packs for the current block, including Rise Of The Eldrazi, were on sale along with some boosters from the previous block. They also have single cards on display.

So, if you find yourself with an urge to splurge on a few Magic cards, and it’s a weekend, then check out Harbourview @ 42 Canal Street, Dartmouth (former Value Village location).

Rise Of The Eldrazi – Release

Today, as we all know, is the release of the latest set in the Zendikar Block, Rise of the Eldrazi. So, I popped into D & M Cards over in Burnside to buy a couple of Booster Packs. When I got back from my other tasks I decided to film the opening of the first pack and post it on YouTube. Check it out.

I also found myself over at the Mic Mac Mall later in the day, but did not see any RotE stuff in either Zellers or Toys R Us.

Update:

Here is the opening of the second packet.

UPDATE: Thanks to Malcolm at D&M for updating me with the location information.

D & M Sports Cards are located at 201 Chain Lake Drive, Unit 16, Bayers Lake, Halifax, NS. It seems that I must have just missed the new store as it’s on the same block as the Dragon Buffet King, directly behind the Mcdonalds.
