It was actually that purplish-bluish color, which looks dark blue at one angle and sort of purple at another angle.
And yeah, the lease was up just as I was leaving Vermont, so I dumped it. Totally fun little car, though!
Well we’re not necessarily looking for magic players, specifically. Just people with similar general interests to see movies with, go hang out in bars and talk about dork stuff with, play video games with, blah blah blah. Preferably people of roughly the same age or same domestic responsibilities (ie… “hey I live in SF but I have the wife and three kids and seven pets and I never leave home” doesn’t really help me much).
I don’t live anywhere near there, but the magic card thing made me smile. When I was moving in to my new house and unloading the truck I found cards from when I was playing: I found a couple of Beta and Alpha lands and a few unlimited commons. Man, I sort of wish I’d never sold all that stuff because I could totally get a mint for it today.
Really? Are those things worth serious money now? I’ve got a closetful of the things, very close to a complete set of just alpha/betas sitting around in boxes. None of them are in pristine condition though. I was a player, not a collector.
yeah, they can be Nick. When I sold out, years and years ago, I had 45 moxes and 9 black lotii. at the time the moxes were going for like 50 bucks each and the lotii 90 each. nowadays, last time I looked a lotus was like 300+ and moxes were 150+. I don’t know what they’re worth now.
Whoa, you had way more than me. If I recall the contents of my boxes, I’ve only got a couple of each mox and a few lotii. Part of me is now greedily tempted to turn them into immmediate cash, but I suspect if I’ve sat on them this long, I can sit on them a few years longer.
Dang, those are high prices. I seriously doubt that I would get that kind of money for cards though. My cards are not in great condition and those are retail prices you listed. I think a dealer would have to buy for much lower than retail to preserve their margins.
I think I’ll sit on them until I have a genuine need for some money.
I’m in downtown Oakland, and I still have all my Magic cards. I don’t really play much anymore, as I’ve, instead, become addicted to Pirates of the Spanish Main.
I’m up for boozing and floozing whenever and however. I’d recommend the Oakland nightlife, mainly because I know all the bartenders thanks to a couple stories I’ve written about Oakland’s night life. Lots of rockabillies, no frat guys, and tons of good, solid, blue collar drinking establishments.
Also, Endgame is over here, and it’s a fabulous game store with lots of playing space.
Of course, North Beach is rad too, especially the Gold Spike!
Muddy’s Cafe, 24th and Valencia, in the Mission. Board game night every Friday. (Though by board games, that also includes various card-based games, though not poker, but more like Magic or Apples and whatever that game is called).
