A TCG is a special kind of game in which each individual player plays using his or her own custom set of cards chosen from their collection. One way to think of it is that it's kind of like collecting baseball cards except you can pull about 60 of your favorite cards out of your collection and play a game with them against your buddy who is playing with about 60 of his favorite cards he pulled out of his collection. There are several factors that make this kind of game appealing to people-The ability to customize your own deck. Your deck is something unique that you yourself created. Playing with a deck you customized and created for yourself can be very satisfying, especially when you win. In practice, your deck is a lot like your WoW character. It's something you can spend a good amount of time on and take pride in.-Every match is different. As I just pointed out, your deck is yours alone. And each and every opponent you face will have his or her own deck with different characters, abilities, and strategies from the opponent you faced before.-The social aspect. Getting involved in a TCG involves going out on a regular basis to your local hobby shop and interacting with other players face to face. Playing games, trading cards, and making friends. -It's fun. This point kind of speaks for itself.That said, as with any other game, your millage may vary and you might not have fun playing the WoW card game or TCGs in general. If that's the case, then this simply isn't the place for you. Move along, and we wish you well in your future endeavors. However, if you have a hobby shop close enough and a little spare cash for a starter deck, I highly recommend you try it out for yourself.
