Magic: The Gathering is the landmark trading card game from Richard Garfield that was loved by Wizards of the Coast’s then-CEO Peter Adkison when he saw it in the early 1990s. It changed so much about the very idea of trading card games when it was released in 1993. By 2015, the game had amassed 20 million players.
Fast Forward to 2020. Wizards is the Coast is on a roll. There’s a Magic: The Gathering movie franchise in development. There’s a new game studio in Austin. And the Russo Brothers are creating an animated series based on Magic mythology for Netflix. Expect much more to come.
So welcome, Wizards of the Coast. We’re so glad to have you aboard for the 9th Annual New York Game Awards!
