"However, a recent addition to the weekly tournament at my local comic book store mentioned that he knows plenty of people who buy the cards but never learn how to play.Why is that?"I'm guessing they're looking for the in-game loot cards

It's why Vegas casinos can make so much money. People find the chance at winning to be thrilling, and this applies to putting down $60-80 on Booster Boxes for a chance at the super-rare, super-valuable loot cards like mounts (rather than the hundreds of dollars it takes to buy one off of eBay).The funny thing about it is, if they had just gone straight to buying off of eBay, most of these folk probably would save money in the long run.

I know that people don't understand why people do this open big amounts of boxes at a time for those big super rare rares. Well I for one am aMagic the Gathering card game player and I open approximately 2-3 boxes worth of the product at the time of release.Cracking packs just tends to have that giddy child like feeling about it and to me I find very relaxing. I also though do play the game because Magic unlike the WoW TCG doesn't run promotionals such as this one to drive sells to non-TCG players. I have to also say the WoW TCG is no different then the Magic TCG other than some slight rule and priority differences that I played WoW for a while but will never go back.

You can also sell the rares, epics and legendary quality cards that you pull from the packs as well.

technically, in magic you can be resource starved when you don't get a land card. in wow tcg you can play useless cards face-down as resources. (+1 wow tcg)I do think in magic though there's a lot more variety that can be done since you can specialize in one colour or across 2-3 other magic types. (+1 magic)
