Is always great to find the interesting bts that goes into my favorite card game. I love how I can learn more about game design so that I can someday make my own game. (Also codenames for v-z are vault wakeboarding X-country yo-yo and zorb)

This entire podcast is basically just Maro repeating himself, making the same 3 points over and over again. The podcast would definitely benefit from more structure, because Mark’s ad libbing skills aren’t the best. But if you’re looking to learn about MTG history and game design, this the...Read full review »

Cool podcast thank you for going back to pre-pandemic type episodes!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mark you’re a great podcaster and a poor interviewer. For the love of phyrexia stop the interviews and get back to magic content!!
Kkjhgfddddddssssss via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/20/20
I really like your normal content more than the interviews. I like some of the interviews but other interviews I just don’t listen to. I like your old content more and the new black green episode is great. I just wanted to voice my opinion. This show is amazing though and I will always love it no...Read full review »

I used to love listening to Mark pontificate about the history of magic. However, the continual use of the “he” pronoun and the “goodbye guys” at the end of the cast threaten to make it almost unlistenable in the present historical context and with our current political and social climate. Please...Read full review »

If you’re at all interested in the history and what goes on behind the scenes with the best game on the planet, this podcast is for you! I appreciate Maro’s honesty and candor talking about the game we all love. Keep up the great work!

I thoroughly enjoy when this podcast is going over the design of the set because I am big into Magic’s design history. When Mark started doing interviews as opposed to the other kinds of episodes he did, I decided that I didn’t want to here Mark networking his way around during the pandemic. He...Read full review »

I used to listen to this podcast all the time. Problem was, my drive to work was only a few minutes, so I started biking instead. This is great content, there’s rarely an episode I’m just not interested in at all, and learning about the back end of magic is very fun.

I love his voice and and his amazing energy!

I love hearing about game design and Mark Rosewater’s frank and enthusiastic manner is a perfect look into one of my favorite games!
Steel Rabbit via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/14/20
I enjoy magic content but skew more towards limited podcasts. I cannot stand the sound of this man’s voice. When he calms down it’s fine but as soon as he gets excited its just screechy nerd voice that fries my brain and gives me physical pain.
Sbress via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/27/20
I really like this podcast. It provides insight into the development of magic sets, and is very fun.
the super nerdy science dude👽 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/01/19
Mark Rosewater might be a little too eager, a little too excited and a little too nerdy for many tastes but dig through the waffle and this is a man with a huge amount to give. Loads of really inspiring and insightful comments, understanding of how people work and (if you love the game) a behind...Read full review »

I have only been playing for about two years, but listening to this podcast has made me a better, more knowledgeable player. I loved the guild podcasts especially. It’s interesting and helpful. Definitely watch.

It is an amazing podcast, I listen to it all day

Imagine how much someone must love their job, that even on their drive to work they’re producing content about their work. MaRo’s passion and genuine enthusiasm are impossible to contain, and he always has something to teach to aspiring designers or fans in general. If you’re into game design or...Read full review »

Great source of history from someone who was there from the beginning. If you want to know how and why they make magic this is the show for you. Great insight into the bigger picture. While there are some amazing episodes here... the content could come out less frequently with a more interesting...Read full review »

Awesome! Great way to understand the stories and depth underneath making cards, and magic in general!

This show is the best show ever. So far
Toshi Kitty via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/03/18
A great and enjoyable look into game design, Magic, and more. My one major issue is that when he goes over cards from old sets, he says the CMC of each card twice, in 2 different ways. This is entirely unnecessary and fairly annoying, as even the newest Magic players understand how to read mana...Read full review »

Can be difficult to follow. He bounces forward and back in his descriptive narrative about magic. Knows practically everything about the historical development of the best game ever made.

Even if you don't play Magic you're going to fall in Love with the voice and stories that Mr. Rosewater will weave. Better than sliced bread!Read full review »

Mark Rosewater is the of (un)official historian of MTG. I love hearing him talk about days past as well as how the design process works. If like Magic: The gathering, you'll love hearing baout it first hand from one of the driving forces of the game.Read full review »

One of the designers of Magic the Gathering discuss how this game is designed and developped. It is a great source of information about the game, but it says even more about creativity and design that keeps human psychology in mind. I know of no product where the makers are so honest and...Read full review »

I have been a listener for a few weeks now and I have enjoyed each and every episode. I've been playing MTG since Beta, but I haven't played an actual game in over 15 years.

This podcast is quite good. Sure, some times the topics aren't my cup of tea or I'll completely disagree with his ratings on top 10s or showdowns (IE delirium/emerge/madness in Innistrad Showdown... Mark, players like complex mechanics!!) but Mark gives amazings perspective on what it...Read full review »

If you enjoy Magic the Gathering in any way, Mark is going to do his best to give you what you want somewhere along the line.

During his ongoing career with Magic, Mark Rosewater has been considered both an end-bringer and a savior of the beloved collectible card game. Who better than him to offer insight into the creative process as well as the trials and triumphs along the way to keeping the magic alive.

I have never been more inspired to follow my dream of one day working for wizards of the coast creating the wonderful game I love so so much. Very clear and concise with his speech which is HIGE and on top of that it could be one of the most informative podcasts I've ever listened to. 6/5...Read full review »

Mark talks and talks and talks and you can't help get captured by his enthusiasm. I am so happy Magic is in his capable hands. The podcast gets a little bit repetetive at times and sometimes you get to hear a story three or four times. Still premium MTG content.Read full review »

Mark does a great job talking about the history of magic (even if it goes off topic a bit) and designing board games in general. His podcasts offer a unique look into the history of magic, including the more successful blocks and the less successful blocks (kamigawa). All in all its a great...Read full review »
