Quote from SavannahLion »Closing LGSes does not necessarily equate to the death of Magic, which is what post title suggests:
R.I.P. Magic: the Gathering (1993-2020)
Magic appeared at a time when LGS wasn't even a thing, we all had to play in cramped sports card shops, in the backs of video rental stores and pizza parlors. Heck, I played Magic in a comic book store that was smaller than most bathrooms. We had to stand on opposite sides of the counter.
What kills an LGS, even en masse, is usually a pretty easy answer. So Card Slinger J is probably not too far off on that.
What can kill MtG isn't quite so easy to answer. Equating the closure of approximately 40% (whatever that number ultimately turns out to be) of all LGSes isn't going to equate to the death of Magic.
The title is misleading and... what's the term? Click bait?
