Magic the Gathering

Started playing Magic again.  Doing it online.  My son kept watching me play, so I tried to teach him (he's 6 years old).  So we sat down, and I went over the steps and how to read the cards, such as Mana Cost, Power/Toughness, etc etc. (which he had no problem with).

Today, I played two games against him using some of my old decks.

In the first game, he left me dead, with his Razor Golem equipped with Banshee's Blade, Loxodon Warhammer, and Grafted Wargear trampled over my blocker, leaving me at exactly 0, and him at 31.

Second game was closer, with my Carrion Feeder leaving him at 1 life before he beat me down into -2 life.

It was fun, and helped me to justify having bought so many cards so long ago.
