When the Nazis came for the communists, I said nothing; I was, of course, no communist.
When they locked up the Social Democrats, I said nothing; I was, of course, no Social Democrat.
When they came for the trade unionists, I said nothing; I was, of course, no trade unionist.
When they came for me, there was no one left who could protest.
This is why we must fight for all

Assuming this isn't a hoax (though it sure sounds like it), a card game is no way to make a mutual, major life-changing decision.

my first thought is that it was a hoax.

and if it is true... well get good at the game...win and then problem solved.

Not a hoax.
We both played with new and unseen decks last night and she says I did really well for a beginner.

Her interest in the FSP has gone way up since I mentioned the game nights and such. She also likes a Harry Potter card game.

Since I took an "interest" in MtG, she has been almost giddy. I've challenged her to find one of my hobbies in which she can take an interest.

I advocated for Halo once. Regretfully, things didn't work out.

As a rule, women who have moved tend to point out that they have _more_ friends than ever here, more of a social life, and more community than they have found elsewhere.  YMMV, but I think that's pretty true of any of the women who have wanted to find others to hang out with... and even the casual friendships found far exceed the usual number.  We've had quite a few weddings where half the crowd (or more) was FSPers, and we have pretty regular parties for most holidays and whatever occasions we can make up.

I'm quite serious when I say that couples who come visit usually end up with the wife being ready to move right away.  That's only gotten more and more true as the women here have gotten more and more active (politically, but also just socially)

Yay.

Dude, we need some kind of monthly tourney or something for this.  There are so many MtG folks in this state now, that I can't imagine NOT filling a large room with folks.

They certainly wouldn't all fit in my house, eh.

Tell your wife that if she moves, I'll lend her the Power 9.

Otherwise, I'll lend YOU the Power 9.

Either way, I win.

If that doesn't do it for her, tell her I'll supply her drinks (her choice) for the first two Magic "n00b nights" that happen in Derry every week. Literally, every week, between 10 and 20 people gather to have fun play Magic and teach new players the game. If she's good, she can play on Monday's where the "hardcore people" are. If she's interested in safe, social environment, she won't be able to beat Barskey's place.

Finally. Here's the gotcha.

If you or your wife have questions, e-mail m e. kevin@foreverdean.info

I have an old Magic: The Gathering Encyclopedia.  It's fantastic, I bought it years ago so it's not been updated since the late 90's.  It's got pictures of every card, the old ones, the funny ones, the ones that don't make any sense, and the ones that make you do stupid tricks that MTG has outlawed.

it's neat looking through it.  I think I'll put it up as a prize at some point if there's ever a charity game set for a liberty activist or program in need.

That might tip the scale to get her to Liberty Forum. I've been trying to get her there for years now. Either way, I want her to see it so we know what we're playing for.
