    Yeah, my cousin (who goes to a Catholic school) had the same thing happen to him. They banned magic/pokemon cards there.

    Okay, I recently went to a cardstore that was overrun by pokemon players. I began to play magic against the owner (my red/green deck slaughtered him!) when a nine year old comes up to me. "Oh, magic," he says "I used to play that, when I was seven." That's funny.
    But also worrisome, the reverse conversion is dangerous. I think magic will last longer because it doesn't advertise as much, so those who join, do not join to "be cool" they join cause they like it. Pokemon, on the other hand...

    My brother, btw, has found what I consider the only legitimate use of pokemon cards: he begs them off kids at school until he has a deck, then he trades up, a little each time. He just sold one of his three free decks for about $50. Now that's worthwhile pokemon...
