Wizards of the Coast is about to release their best game ever, a
series of card games by Richard Garfield known as the DeckMaster(tm)

more than just a new game--it's a new gaming *form.* Not since the
invention of roleplaying has such an innovative concept been
introduced to the table gaming market.
Two hundred and seventy-two pieces of high quality fantasy color art
have been commissioned for this game from over twenty fantasy artists,
including Anson Maddocks, Mark Tedin, Jesper Myrfors, Melissa Benson,
Jeff Menges, Daniel Gelon, and Dan Frazier. Magic: The Gathering
promises to not only provide a fresh face to gaming, but also to be
one of the most visually appealing games every published.
Art originals will be available for purchase at the show.
Also at this event will be an open-house tour of the Wizards of the
Coast office. Here's an excellent opportunity to discuss upcoming
products, old classics, and gaming trends with the Wizards of the
Coast staff. Also, see works in progress--art, text, and so forth.
There will also be demo games of Magic: The Gathering(tm). These will
be orchestrated by the game's designer, Richard Garfield, Ph.D.
This event will be held at the Wizards of the Coast office just south
