    1. Too much. :) Not sure really, it depends on the month. Usually, ~20-40$, based on the number of drafts we do.

    2. I buy boosters at my local shops, cards on Ebay, and boxes whereever they're cheapest online.

    3. I perfer boxes, but buy boosters more often.

    4. Nopes.

    5. Nah. My friends loan me their's on the rare occassion that I decide to play.

    6. Nope.

    7. Yah, off Ebay.

    8. Um... Yah. :) Off Ebay.

    9. Oh, YEAH. They'd better. We don't have anywhere else to run our drafts, and we can't very well just hang out with each other to play if we don't have a functional venue!

    2) Do you buy magic at a local shop or on the net?I used to go to this really crappy local place where I had to explain 27 times what it was I wanted (they kept the Magic cards behind the counter, and the store people didn't know the difference between boosters, precon decks, and tournament packs..), but then I discovered online shopping..:)
    3) Do you prefer sealed boxes or just buying a couple boosters every now and then? I bought a whole big box of Invasion (had to split it with my brother, though), because the set is so darn cool, but it's fun to buy boosters now and then, too.. so basically I do some of both

  15. Mr_Pestilence Wumpus

    1) For packs, singles, tournaments, sleeves, etc., around $200 a month - more when new releases come out (I usually get 2-3 boxes).
    2) I by locally and nationally.
    3) I like boxes when they are released, and then singles and few boosters each week.
    4) Nope. No vices other than Magic. (Well, there is that fixation w/ Wendy's spicy chicken sandwiches.)
    5) Nope. I played in high school, but I don't have time now.
    6) I have a DCI number, and play in 15-20 sanctioned tournaments a year, including PTQs, pre-releases, etc.
    7) I buy singles.
    8) Where I can find them.
    9) If I play, I try to buy something out of courtesy. If more people did this, more retailers might provide play space.
