    Post Introduction and other games you play

    Since we have awhile before Hex comes out and a tight community is important to the game. Tell us about yourself and what other games do you play?

    Im 27, married and have 2 boys (age 5 and 2) with my first baby girl on the way and will be here next month. I'm a car salesman.

    I dabble in multiple MMO's but I do not have one I would call "home". I also like Starcraft 2 but I seem to like watching the pro matches more then actually playing. I also am wanting to start playing DOTA 2 when I have the time.

    I'm 27, engaged, no lil'un.

    I play a lot of table top RPG, I played MTG from ice age - Ravnica(sp?) although never really competitively just with friends.
    I also own Fantasy Flight LCG base sets for GoT and Cthulhu, but only really play those with friends on occasion.

    So I'm mostly casual when it comes to gaming.

    Video game wise i like to watch a lot, SCII, LoL, Dota2 now. And i play all those very poorly. MMO wise I played WoW from Beta but haven't had a subscription in ages and it never much kept my interest enough to play the expansion. I like Star Trek Online, and i'm playing the new Neverwinter MMO!

    I love writing and reading too, so I'm really excited about the lore side of this.

    Hey i'm 20 year old college student.

    I've played a lot of online video games moving from Dota, to wow, to starcraft 2, and then to league of legends.

    Haven't played a TCG in quite some time and am looking forward to playing competitively through PvP and hopefully PvE.

    I'm so excited for Hex I check the website daily just to read more about the game and talk to my friends about it non stop haha.

    Looking forward to playing with you guys in September!

    Currently WoW is occupying my video game time... but I do enjoy the occasional console game as well.

    I enjoy WoWTCG, my first exposure to a TCG, but just dont have the time to trek out to shops and find games these days. Still play it with friends occassionally.

    Otherwise I prefer quick "sit down"/party type games... several of CZE's products (Penny-Arcade, Food Fight, Epic Battle Wizards) and some others like Cards Against Humanity

    I'm a 32 y/o Peri-Operative Nurse in the US Army. I have 3 kids with the two oldest boys at 8 and 5 and a 3 y/o girl.

    I play a wide range of video games, currently including Minecraft, Defiance, Trials Evolution, and Heroes of Might and Magic 6. I also play D&D and Pathfinder online using RPTools and Roll20 with friends from all over.

    I played Magic from revised to 6th edition. I haven't touched TCG much since, just Pokemon which I play with my 8 y/o son.

    36 year old Operations Manager for a small town garbage business.

    6 kids (5 girls, 1 boy) just celebrated my 14th anniversary. The oldest girl and maybe the next one down will be dragged into Hex too if past games I've played are any indicator...

    I played Magic off and on since Fallen Empires (Some of my fondest memories of college were sitting at a table with 4-6 of my friends and a deck that had 150-200 cards...until my friend's 60 card deck showed us better). Each time I get back into TCG's (Magic specifically) I raise my level of play towards serious competitive play. My first serious tournament with Magic I took a Psychatog deck that was 'obviously the best' as it had just won some major pro tour event. I ended up last place in a field of 63. Yeah, I was that bad. I've dabbled with other TCG's, but nothing stuck like Magic.

    I've been a gamer for my whole life. Tabletop RPG's (GURPS, West End's Star Wars, Shadowrun, Robotech, etc.), Video games (the Final Fantasy franchise, Starcraft, SC2, everything from Archon to Torchlight 2, etc.), MMO's (WoW was a staple in my home for a few years, a number of f2p here and there), regular board games (ANYTHING strategic in nature, Risk, Axis and Allies, Fortress America, chess of course), Tabletop miniatures (Warhammer 40k mostly). Yeah, sometimes I feel it's easier to name the games I HAVEN'T touched at some point or another. Pitting my brain against another human being is one of my great thrills in life. Seriously.

    Hex blew my mind the moment I saw it. Sucked over here by an ad on...some website, can't remember. 45 seconds into the 'how to play' video and I was desperately trying to figure out how to reach in and pull that game into my world. I haven't been this excited about the release of a product in years. September can't get here fast enough! My friends WILL and HAVE heard about this. They may stop answering my calls if they don't pledge quick. Good luck Crypto!

    I'm 28, father of a 3.5 yrs old girl and a 5 months old boy. I work as a marketing manager.
    Playing MTG since Odyssey block (2001-ish), but played MTG based computer games even before.
    I was never a huge fan of MTG. I used to say, that quitting MTG is easy, I done it like ten times.
    But I'm on a constant lookout for a new/better/fresh TCG. I was hoping Carte will be that one.
    I was really dedicated to it. I became VIP of the Closed Beta (that title was given to 2 players including me), than community helper after the english release, admin of the Carte wiki (http://carte-tcg.com/) and was also quite pro. I grinded myself into top10 worldwide (6th IIRC) at the very beginning. Then the non-asian Carte community started to dwindle, and people started to quit the game, due to some reasons I don't wish to discuss in here… Long story short: even if I'm theoretically a community helper still, I play very little Carte, I did not start the client in the last 3 months. I definitely hope, that HEX will not follow Carte into the oblivion.

    Its funny how many of the Hex fans are ex-MTG players I still really enjoy Magic, I just do not have time to go to a local game shop and play. Oh and MTGO is horrible and super clunky/difficult to deal with.

    I cant wait for Hex!

    Hi, I'm a 21 year old Package Investigator for an international athletic apparel store. I am not married, but will be engaged soon (hoping she says yes!). Oh and I have a cat. She's nuts.

    Currently my job takes up a lot of my time, but I do meet up with my friends to play MtG now and again. When I have free time, I am usually playing a console/handheld game, writing or reading. I mainly play RPGs, but I do occasionally like shooters or puzzle games.

    I played Magic when I was first in elementary school, but my young self just did not get into it that much. After I graduated from high school, a buddy of mine introduced it to me again and something in me just clicked. I've wanted to play DnD or Pathfinder for ages now, but I can't seem to find players for it, even when I say I'd DM/GM.

    What drew me into Hex was the fact that I can't play MtG as much as I'd like. I know I can certainly play MTGO, but frankly, the client it terrible. I would rather take two of my decks and play myself (which I've done. Really hard keeping certain knowledge from myself at that point). Everything I've seen so far about Hex just blows me away. An engaging storyline, single-player support, and it's something new. Something that hasn't been done before. I used to play Shadow Era, a TCG for mobile devices, and I liked it, a bit, but it felt like it was just missing something. That something, I believe, was just taking advantage of it being a digital game. I believe Hex is going to revolutionize how TCG's are done.

    September, you had better hurry up and get here so we can all play this!!

    32, Sr Web Dev/Team Lead. I played Magic for many a year until I just didn't have the time and my other friends who played dropped out of the scene. Played MtgO for a good long time, but it never really aged well.
