Always fascinating to listen to Mr. Rosewater

Very good, but not perfect.

If you’re interested in looking under the hood and behind the scenes of Magic: The Gathering, you’re going to enjoy this show. Even if you don’t care about Magic, this is a great resource for the aspiring game designer.

I still love the show, but Mark did something uncharacteristic in 2022 that annoyed me. He did literally TEN consecutive episodes about Unfinity. I fully accept that I’m not going to interested in every episode topic. But if you fully know that a majority of your audience doesn’t care about a particular set, why would you spend ten episodes in a row on that set? Of all people, Mark is the last person I would expect to alienate his audience that way.

How can you not love Mark?

Nobody has a passion for the hobby, and a better insider perspective. I love Mark’s enthusiasm, experience and the breadth of topics covered here .
