The Finisher

This past weekend was the PrePrerelease, featuring several of our favorite Magic personalities like Olivia Gobert-Hicks, Daniel Holt, Jaime Topples, and Vince Chandler aka PleasantKenobi. And while the show itself was a smash, what was even more of a smash… is the “smash” that occurred later when a fanfiction of PK and Tomer Abramovici of Budget Commander fame surfaced during the same weekend. And future MTG fanfics can’t be far behind. So as we fade to black on this episode, tell me the pitch for your future magical Magic fan fictions.

The Finisher

Link: https://kotaku.com/truck-carrying-gaming-dice-spills-onto-highway-rolls-a-1838218869 

On Friday, September 13, a truck bound for the Georgia-based tabletop and video game company Trivium Studios took a turn too sharply, spilling 216,000 gaming dice onto Interstate 75 in Atlanta in what could be the biggest unintentional dice roll ever. A representative commented, “Though unfortunate it happened, nobody got hurt and we now own an unofficial world record for the largest dice roll in history!” Considering the average roll of two six-sided dice is seven, and approximately 216,000 dice were rolled, Trivium estimates the roll totaled 756,000. The truck was undamaged, having made its saving throw. Now, this is big news, or maybe huge or gargantuan news based on how big this creature is, but tell me: the next time gaming “spills” into mainstream, how would you like to see it happen?

The Finisher

A lot happened today, a *lot*, but probably the biggest news overall is that the Magic: the Gathering Twitch is now a baking channel. Because for 30 minutes leading into today’s cavalcade of announcements, the Magic team were making gingerbread cookies in anticipation of today’s Throne of Eldraine announcements. So set your hot takes to 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes until golden brown and tell me: what’s the next dish you’d like to see served cold on Twitch.tv/magic?
