Expats in China are nothing if not creative, as most recently demonstrated by the following collection of hilarious China-life-inspired Magic: The Gathering cards.
For those that are unfamiliar with Magic: The Gathering, more commonly referred to as ‘Magic,’ it's basically the greatest trading card game ever created (and don’t take our word for it: Nerdist, Arcade Sushi and The Top Tens agree). Released on August 5, 1993 by Hasbro’s Wizards of the Coast, Magic is the first modern trading card game, according to Guinness World Records.
There are numerous formats for playing the celebrated fantasy card game, which, for the sake of space and time, we won’t get into here. (Although if you are curious, here is a full list of rules and game styles, courtesy of the creative warlocks over at Wizards of the Coast).
The China-themed, 100-percent-non-canon Magic cards we are sharing with you below were discovered today on WeChat and appear to have been made via mtgcardsmith.com, a website that allows you to create your own quirky fantasy trading cards.
Now, sit back with us and enjoy ‘Middle Kingdom: The Gathering.’
