Bookstooge Got’s Sol!

Earlier this year I gave my A History of …… Magic the Gathering. Since that time, because I’ve pretty much given up on playing, I’ve slowly moved into the collectible side of things.

The above picture features all the Revised Sol Rings I’ve bought since that last post. While they say things can’t buy happiness, these have certainly brought a level of enjoyment that I don’t get from buying groceries.

So if cardboard pictures don’t make you happy, then buy yourself a bag of chips and cry me a river. Because I’m just chock full of sympathy right now!

    That’s a lot of Sol Ring’s😅😅😅 I used to love Magic the Gathering. I played it a lot at school. In fact there were days were classes had already ended and we stayed at school for hours on end to play Magic. Good times. The fun got ruined a bit because of mr. Suitcase, but overall this is still a really fantastic game😊

  2. What kind of level of excitement do you get from buying groceries? On a scale of 1 to five and a half?

    Buying certain things I don’t really need can make me very happy. It’s the human in me😉

    Ok, this beats me. Why so many of the same card? Or are there differences between them?

  7. There is totally zero joy to be found in buying in groceries! I very much agree with that! I was collecting Paddington books and Harry Potter stuff all summer and that brought me some happy days! Vital to find something fun this year with everything going on!

  8. I don’t think I ever owned multiple copies of the same thing, not at this level anyways hahaha I do prefer collecting the same thing but in different editions though, e.g. various copies of The Killing Joke graphic novel. But I’m with you. Sometimes a little bit of happiness can indeed be bought! 😀

      Outside of MTG, I would never do something like this. Even with the comic cards I collected in the 90’s, once I had the set, that was it. Good move on my part too, as that whole fiasco fell apart like wet cement. The cards are worth less than when I initially bought them 😀 Even the original Marvel Masterpieces by Vallejo…
