Magic Q&A and Winners
Last December, we held a Magic: The Gathering Q&A with Ken Troop, Max McCall, and Michael Gillis. They discussed their love of the tabletop game and its transition to a digital title, the longevity of Magic: The Gathering tabletop and online tournaments, and what Magic: The Gathering creature they would be. Check out the full Q&A recap here and congrats to all our winners for asking engaging questions!
