M is for Magic Club

M is for Magic
At Cedar Ridge Academy Private International Therapeutic Boarding School, students have the opportunity to join clubs. Magic club is just one of the many clubs that we have here. Some of the other clubs are boxing, technology club, life-time hobbies, and basketball. Through clubs, we learn great therapeutic skills.

Magic the gathering is a card game. There are spell, instant, creatures, and lands cards and some other ones. Your goal is to build a deck out of the cards that you have. When you feel your deck is ready for combat, you battle your opponents, and your goal is to reduce their life to 0 from 20 or have them run out of cards to draw. You start out with seven cards in your hand and then you draw a new card each turn. You use your creatures to attack as well has defenders from your opponents creatures. You use artifacts to help boost your creatures up this means that they are stronger or they have more abilities. The spell cards are good for making your opponent’s creatures weaker and countering your opponents attacks.

A Magic Game
We have magic club on Mondays at 8:00-9:00. This is a really great time to have some fun with your peers and it helps bring people together in a fun and productive way. Every once in a while the people that are in the magic club will go to magic tournaments to play agents outers from all over. Lots of people have their own magic cards and they get together on the weekends and battle with each other. They also trade cards with each other to make there decks as good as they can get.

The Magic Club
Just like in all games there are conflicts that will come up during the game. We all learn how to deal with the conflicts that come up when we are playing in the right way. Something that we learn to do is to talk to others about what is going on for us in the moment. This helps work out the conflicts before they turn into something bigger. This is a good way to learn how to handle situations that may come up later in life. You will be able to use some of the same skills that you learned here later on in life.
