Magic Card Guest at Boxboro

A couple of weeks ago, I was an artist guest at Star City Games Standard Open held at Holiday Inn in Boxborough, Massachusetts. This was my first experience with a Magic crowd and signing their cards and such. Turned out to be a great bunch of people who were there for only one thing : to game! When the card contest started, the hush that fell over the room was so noticeable it was as if everyone had suddenly disappeared from the hall.
