What is Byo Magic?
You know how to play Magic: the Gathering? Good, you’re almost on your way to participating in Byo Magic. The game works like this. A group of people (in this case, 8) each download a MtG card making tool and make 45 of their own Magic: the Gathering cards. This is done with the goal of each person combining their cards to make one large pool of 360 cards. The group then splits the cost of purchasing around 400 similar card sleeves and printing the cards at Kinkos on heavy cardstock (usually no more than 2 or 3 bucks a person) and having them cut. Afterward, each card in put into sleeves with a real M:tG card behind it. Once done, the pile is shuffled and each player is dealt three piles of 15 cards each. The players use these piles as if they were booster packs and play a normal booster draft with those cards! It’s a pretty simple process and a whole lot of fun!
