I was taught to play magic this summer at a camp in the USA by of all
people, another leader:) I thought it was a good game and it taught you
to think, it taught me how to lose but thats another story. I was one of
those people who played D&D and I don't see the problem with it as long as
you didn't take it to seriously which I suppose can be said about magic.
I always bring my chess board, batgammon(?) and a deck of cards to camp
for a rain activity and the chess board gets used the most.
