Alumni Wins MTG Award

Last modified date

Congratulations to PSU English alum Dan Bosco who was recently awarded the MTG Content Creators Award for best single magic article with his blog post: “Magic is a Sport and Requires Good Sportsmanship.” 

“A four-player game requires interaction, politics, and sometimes even teamwork. But if one person is mentally clocked-out, checking their phone, arms crossed and just waiting for it to be their turn again, the other players lose 25% of their gameplay experience. 

Even though Commander is usually a free-for-all, it is still a team activity. It requires four players who all share a common goal: maximizing the fun for all parties involved. You can’t only be invested in a game when you’re winning. If that’s how we all played, we would be better off playing Solitaire on our computers.”
