I love TCGs. I started playing the Pokémon TCG when it came out; I transitioned to Yu-Gi-Oh! when it was released; then I discovered MTG by attending events at my local game shop. Now, I have been playing MTG casually for more than 10 years. As an academic librarian, I was immediately fascinated by MTG lore, always reading about characters and different planes. This has led me to play the game more casually and to experience different formats and game styles.

I like staying up-to-date with how the game is developing, and I frequently watch Pro Tours and other matches online to learn from competitive players. Even though I don't play competitively, I like seeing what new strategies are being used, which cards are seeing the most play, and how new players achieve amazing victories.

I enjoy introducing new players into the game and seeing their different takes on the cards. Currently, I am hosting an MTG club at the public library of Malta for anyone who is interested in learning.
