My friends and I never learned how to play officially either. We just...well....we really never "battled" anyways...we just collected the cards haha.
There was always this weird 20 year old kid who would try to scam little kids out of their good cards.
I'm sorry man, I had pretty much no internet access and there was lots of family stuff goin on too. Next time most definitely.
@Dhampy: I thoroughly enjoyed the odour, as I usually do when I mark my property.
Oh btw, add me on msn. me bored.
