Most of this week have been half days at my school due to finals, so I've been spending a lot of time hanging out with friends. Usually when any of us get together, we do the same old stuff - play StarCraft, Rock Band, hit up Jack in the Box for some curly fries...usual nerdy stuff. But yesterday I think we did one of the nerdiest things we've done in recent memory.
Three of us were just hanging out being bored, since we were waiting for our fourth member to show up with all the Rock Band gear. We were in the room of the friend who owned the house, and the same friend randomly decides to clean his room up a bit. He found his old Yu-Gi-Oh cards under his bed (he has like thousands...) and we all started reminising on the years we were all obsessed with it. Before long, the three of us had built seperate decks and began three way duels until the fourth friend showed up. It was actually some of the most fun I've had in a long time...it was a fun wave of nostalgia.
My own cards have been lost to the ether, and I have no idea where they've gone, but I'm considering tearing the house apart to find them, if they still exist. It's probably pretty geekish to admit it, but how many of you still own your Yu-Gi-Oh cards, and how many more of you actually still play the game?
