I’m really enjoying the renaissance that trading card games are having right now. Magic still feels like the “grown up” version for adults, but I find Pokemon and Lorcana very accessible for playing with your kids. I’m still not sure I completely understand the pure collector side of the hobby, since the deck building aspects of the games are where most of the fun is. Being able to solve the puzzle of putting together a competitive deck is where a lot of the challenge and reward is for me.

In this modern age of too much screen time I appreciate having more choices that require direct social interaction around a table without phones in hand.
