I have to express my immense gratitude for mentioning Dragon Warrior Monsters. I played this game when I was 10 and it was one of my favorite games of all time. Except I never got to beat it because my copy was stolen and I couldn't remember the name. I've spent over a decade trying to figuring out what the hell that game was called until you mentioned it out of the blue.
So thanks, and now I'm going to find/play me some Dragon Warrior Monsters.
I think I may have miss typed my email. I in jest meant to write in first time listener, long time caller, suggesting I send in questions without listen to the answers.
I think at the end of the day, I don't enjoy the card games. I tried setting my own goals and got decently ranked but could keep going. Also I don't play magic because I never clicked with the meta game. Now D&D I like. Maybe it was because of the socialization aspect of it.
