    I used to love that game! Back in the day.
    I still have my "very special" decks.
    A BB counter app would be a great idea. I don't know of one but if I run across anything I'll be sure to post it.

    This app would be a good addition for the current list of BB apps. I haven't played a serious game of MTG in about 6 years but like alleycat, I still have my decks together. I used to carry an app like this on my old handspring visor. The app required you to either press a plus or a minus sign to increase or decrease by a single increment or to tap on the number in the middle of the screen to adjust the number beyond a single increment. The app also included a twenty sided die and a token counter. If I can find this app, maybe somebody can convert it over to the BB.

    Yes MtG is still around and Wizards of the Coast, now owned by Hasbro, is still selling new editions; they're up to 10th.
    I did a search and found an app for a Palm but nothing for the BB. (I think I searched for "Blackberry counter software" and that was the only result).
    But as I said, keep me "posted," I'd still be up for a game if I could find anyone else interested out here in the woods.

    MIGHT have a card that's worth $1700 in near mint condition lying around somewhere? MIGHT have sold it? That's a rare piece of memorabilia, it's hard to believe you wouldn't KNOW for sure what it's status is.

    MTG is still very strong new sets core sets are now all blackborder Black lotus is 2000ish white order but if first edition means beta then it's closer to 4k in any kind of decent condition. I have played since 4th and the only reason not since release was that I hadn't found it yet lol You can find events weekly and FNM is big at alot of card shops. There is also still a pro circut as well.

    I wasted hundreds into that game.. I was very addicted.

    Still got an unopened display case of Ice Age boosters if anyone wants to buy it

    Trouble is I just dont know anyone who plays it now, and it just started getting silly.

    I wouldnt have thought such an app would have been that hard to make, gl.

    Oh lordy...this game.

    I have a funny story about Magic the Gathering.

    So the year is 1995 and I'm sitting in the Dunkin Donuts on boston road and Burke ave in The Bronx eating my usual saturday morning meal. Now this store has an entrance on each side of the building, one facing the street and another facing the parking lot behind the building.

    I'm sitting there...eating my food when someone appears at each of the doors in a black trenchcoat, shades and a black suitcase. Just standing there...staring at each other across the store...
    They both open their doors and walk in slowly...

    *at this point I'm about to **** myself cause I'm thinking they're mafioso settling a problem or something*

    They each walk over to the same table, glaring at each other meanly like the frickin terminator in their shades. Then they both SLAM their suitcases down on the table they are standing at!!!!

    *I jumped up grabbed my coffee and sandwich and ran for the door at this point...I didn't wanna get shot or caught up in some mess*

    I could see from outside the store that they opened the suitcases up roughly while still staring each other down. i just knew that they were gonna whip out guns and shoot up the place...

    Then...they reach into the suitcases and start throwin down.....CARDS!?!?!?!
    I'm like WTF!??! They're playing frickin D&D or something!?
    So I go back in and they're throwin down cards and shouting at each other and I see the name of the game on the cards...sighed...and left.

    That had to be the strangest experience I had at that spot.
    I stopped going there Saturday mornings to eat...just couldn't get back in the groove after that experience.

    =p

    "I MIGHT have a Michael Jordan rookie lying around somewhere." LOL.
    You are right, long since sold. It was in poor condition, but I was still able to get a few hundred for it. I got it from a WoC guy at an E3 mid 90ies after we played a game and I beat him. It was in very poor condition, which is probably why he gave it to me. It was my prize. They were developing an online game at the time and I was a tester.

    Not sure why I did not do this earlier, BUT lets move this to BB Games.

    hey guys ... quick idea on your counter app. Someone should PM dmglakewood (I think thats his id), the app developer that made storm slider and other apps. I would be willing to bet he could make this pretty easily. Worth a shot.
    Check out my themes ...

    So, I recently decided to get into BlackBerry app writing, and being a Magic player myself, I thought it would be pretty nifty to have a life counter on my phone (instead of just dialing my life total as a number, haha), since I can never find my dice.

    So I started writing one today. It's usable, but before I go posting it, I thought I'd ask some questions. (That, and it's on my laptop, which I don't feel like getting out to post it tonight. I'll do so sometime tomorrow.)

    The main screen features just two buttons: "Standard Game", and "2HG Game". The only difference is, one starts your life counter at 20, and one at 30, respectively.

    The 'in-game' screen has a few things: The current life total, a plus and minus button, an edit field for 'change value', and two more buttons: "Roll a d20", and "Flip a coin".

    The '+' and '-' buttons add or subtract from your life total by whatever value is entered in the 'change value' field. Roll a d20 pops up a dialog with a number 1-20, and flip a coin simply tells you heads or tails.

    On BBs with full keyboards, + and - are bound to the + and - buttons, r to 'roll', and f to 'flip'. On the pearl style keyboards, D/F is 'flip', E/R is 'roll', O/P is +, L is -. The volume up down buttons on the side just add or subtract 1 from your life total. (I also don't know how it behaves on much other than a Curve or Pearl, since I don't have the emulators for stuff like the Storm yet, haha)

    Are there any other things you guys think might be cool to have? I'll post what I have sometime tomorrow :]

    Cheers!
