Sharing Passion For Spellfire From Around The World

Today we’re sharing an interview with a true Spellfire fan, someone who started playing the game as a kid and still has a passion for the game today. Meet William! This is his story.

Absolutely, I’m looking forward to sharing my story!

I first learned of Spellfire when I was about 14. A friend of mine invited me over to his house and introduced me to it. I remember enjoying my first experience playing it, but to be honest it took me a little while to buy my own deck and become the fan I am today.

Around the same time that I picked up my first starter deck, a few more friends picked it up and our interest grew from there. Then we started meeting regularly for game nights.

There were! I was lucky enough to have a consistent group of friends to play with and I was aware of other groups not only meeting to play but also to trade. Part of the fun for me was trying to get hold of the rarest cards by attending meets to trade cards with members of the local Spellfire community and later on, with players from other countries. I enjoyed the friendly competition and once I got my collection started, I didn’t look back!

I’ve collected over 500 cards now. I’ve also got a load of unopened booster packs. At this point the unopened packs are pretty rare and worth quite a lot themselves, so that’s why I haven’t opened them yet. It’s pretty tempting though, there might be some rare ones waiting for me inside!

No, I was aware of the bigger international tournaments that were running, but I never entered any. I did play casually in a few local tournaments and even helped to organize a few. But as far as playing goes, I preferred casual games with my friends to the highly competitive environment of tournament play. It was always good fun watching the best players compete though.

Yeah, life got in the way at certain times. After college when I got my first job, Spellfire had to take the backseat for a while. But things did get back on track, a few of my friends are still really into the game, so we meet on the occasional weekend or evening after work for some drinks and some games. Now that I’ve got a family of my own, we’ll play together too. When my kids get a little bit older I can see things getting pretty competitive!

Local communities — I don’t think so. I know there are some online groups where people are still chatting and trading their cards. But the interest is certainly not as big as it once was.

I’m really excited to see you bringing the game back! It played such an important role in my life for many years. It’s wonderful to see so many new champions, spells, and events being created with such high-quality artwork. I will definitely be giving it a try!

When I first heard of the project, I was a little hesitant to see a new development teams take on Spellfire. But as I watch your project grow and after having the opportunity to speak with you today, I can’t wait to see how it turns out.

Actually yes! I already own few of my favorites — ‘Yeti’ and ‘Flaming Sword’. To be honest, I don’t know too much about the world of crypto and NFTs, but this seemed like a great way to dip my toe in. At the end of the day, I love Spellfire and wanted to support its new form in any way I could.

I’ve already been thinking about how they’ll feature in my first deck and I’m looking forward to learning more about how you intend to expand on the original gameplay!
