This blog discusses the social aspects of Magic the Gathering. This includes reflections about the Magic community, reviews and stories about conventions and local game stores, and personal stories about experiences playing Magic. Secondly, I’ll occasionally be posting about games such as Final Fantasy, World of Warcraft, other board and card games, and more. My content focus is firmly situated on my personal and social experiences rather than in providing any sort of instruction on how to play, what the best classes are, or what the best cards or DPS rotations are.

The name ‘Nichole Bolas’ is a take on the legendary Nicol Bolas planeswalker/elder dragon from Magic the Gathering.

A few facts about me:

  • I began playing Magic the Gathering in April of 2021 with the release of Strixhaven and have since developed an addiction to building subpar EDH decks.
  • I’ve been playing World of Warcraft since just before the launch of Cataclysm and Final Fantasy XIV since it’s (second) launch.
  • My first video games were Final Fantasy I and The Legend of Zelda.
  • I also play D&D, occasionally stream on Twitch as craftysloth, have a bunch of writing projects, my Master’s in Library and Information Studies, and love collecting books and new socks.
