Although my first attempt at joining an EDH Commander based Magic the Gathering Playgroup in Austin was a total bust, this week was a success. Attempt number two turned out to be fantastic. This place was legit! The only real issue I have with Mothership Games (aside from their name being way too awesome) is the location. For me it is a bit of a drive. A little over 30 minutes. 45 if you get caught up in traffic. But, I will say that it is totally worth it. This place is exactly what I was looking for in a playgroup environment.
People start showing up at about the time I am looking to play and the people are all really nice. Most of the players that I played last night were all very skilled. I did managed to win one 3 player game, but for the most part I got my face handed to me. Which is exactly what I am looking for in a group. When you are the top dog it is no fun. And this place seems to have a lot of well rounded players. I am excited to be stepping back into the game after a few months break since the big move. But now that Sarah and I are all settled in, it is time to get back to it! Hopefully I make a few solid friends along the way. And if my guess is right, then it is safe to assume I will. Everyone there was very genuine and cool. If you live in the Austin area and are looking for a fun EDH playgroup to join, I highly recommend Mothership Games! Not only are the players cool, but the store rep was very attentive and his beard should be hugged by everyone ever!
