I have a friend who plays Yugioh. He tried to show me and a few other friends how to play once but he forgot to bring the beginners deck for us to try so instead he had to explain all the rules without actually showing us how to play. Ideally someday he’ll get to try again and we’ll get hands-on experience, Yugioh is not meant to be taught via lecture.
He also gave me a card as a present which I keep on my wall. I don’t know if it’s a good card, but it definitely looks cool.

    Unrelated, but when was the phrase “But what do they eat?” coined?

    I’ve only ever seen Shamus use it in a self-deprecating way, but I assume he said it unironically at least once.

      I’m sure it came from a Mr. BTongue Youtube video originally, but I’m not finding it. Shamus linked his own post in the Details Vs. Drama post, which links to The Blistering Stupidity Of Fallout 3 Part 2.

    2. MarcoSnow says:

      It was from MrBtongue’s “TUN: The Shandification of Fallout” YouTube video. It was taken down by YouTube because it contained copyrighted material, but you should be able to find a version with said section edited out. Hope that helps!

  2. My experience with most Card Trading Games: “I have no idea what this card is, what it does, or really even how to play the game…but it sure looks cool.”

      Yeah, the Loading Ready Run people are heavily into Magic the Gathering and while I appreciate the flavour jokes or when they’re doing tabletop in that setting I just cannot follow the actual games (to be fair I usually have them on my second monitor so I don’t devote my full attention to the stream).

      I actually somewhat dodged a bullet because I was getting into MtG at around high-school but lost interest when some people who were playing in my acquaintace circle started building “pro” decks. Basically I wanted to have a bunch of cool creatures and fun spells, they would have weird gimmick decks of the “makes you draw your entire library on third turn” kind and I found that not fun to play.
