As of the writing of this article, the entire country is under lockdown due to a global pandemic. A curfew has been set to hinder the disease from infecting any more than it already has. Streets, malls, and even restaurants are empty due to a recent executive order to prevent the disease from spreading any further.

And in these trying times, tabletop gamers have found ways to get around this hurdle: going online.

Almost all major tabletop games have online counterparts these days, basically providing an alternative for folk who cannot play in person a way to have their fun in the comfort of their own home. Magic: the Gathering is no different. From Magic Online to Magic Arena and even the free-to-play playtest sites such as Cockatrice and Untap, MTG players are have ways to ensure they always get their dose of cardboard crack.

But there are those who risk it and still go to their LGS to play a few games. Even for only a short period of time, there are those who love the physical company of their friends (and rivals) rather than having a screen divide them.

No matter what your preference, one thing is for certain: stay safe, stay clean.

We can get through this.
