Got a 19 month old son and I'm working hard to seriously organize my vast collection and prepare to teach him all about the game that really made a mark on me as a kid. It was discouraging that my parents and school teachers saw the cards as satanic (Unholy Strength and Fire Elemental were cards I had to "hide" for fear of being judged) and bad for me, so they never pushed me to get more into the game. My mother feared that my love for the game would lead me to play Dungeons and Dragons and start to attempt to cast real spells and lose my mind (wut?) As such, I never had much pocket change to buy cards, never had the guidance of an adult to help me understand the concepts we well as I should have, and did what they could to keep me from playing it. I really hope to turn the tide and encourage my son to play this wonderful game with me once he's old enough. And hell, if he decides not to play or just isn't interested, then he's got a very large collection that will go towards a college fund, so either way Magic will benefit him!
