During the fall of my junior year at Truman, the Trading Card Games club was struggling with membership. The president was looking at shuttering the club, since he couldn’t find anyone to be on the executive board. I was not an active member then, but I thought it would be unfortunate for such a niche club to close its doors, so I, along with several other veteran members, stepped into one of the open officer positions. Since then, we’ve worked tirelessly to make the club a vibrant place, and the club has fostered a wonderful community for members to share their favorite games.
We play all kinds of trading card games, such as Magic: The Gathering and Yu-Gi-Oh!. We’ve spent a lot of time cultivating a positive atmosphere and a welcoming space for everyone. One of the best aspects of this is our engagement with players of all skill levels; even if you’ve never played before, our members go out of their way to teach you the game and ensure you’re having a good time!
We meet every week, Sundays at 3 p.m. in Violette Hall 1424, to play our favorite games and hang out.
We also have several pay-to-enter Magic: The Gathering draft events each semester. Our next draft event will be Dominaria Remastered at 2 p.m. March 4 in Violette Hall 1424.
If you’re interested in our club, you can reach out to us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’re happy to answer any questions or send you an invite to our Discord server!
