Horrible Game Experiences: Collectible Card Games

Hey PI-Fans, Continuing our series of Horrible Game Experiences; last week, we talked about Awful Board Game Experiences. This week, it's all about Collectible Card Games. The joy of CCGs is they can be played quickly and anywhere: over a lunch break, after school, a short session after work. But as with all games, things sometimes turn iffy and at times, get very awful. Presenting the worst ever CCG Experiences ever!

You Get Schooled by An Arrogant Player Getting schooled is one thing, but getting schooled by a douchy uber-player is [...]
