Winston Draft – The perfect two player game of Magic!
Emrakul or Emra not cool?
Opening loads of Magic The Gathering boosters is fun. The suspense of getting a brand new mythic or playable rare, together with that heavenly smell of a freshly opened pack is the reason most players buy these products. But here at Peanut Headquarters, I prefer to do something more than just opening these things. Why […]
Yu-Gi-Oh The Dark Side of Dimensions – Movie review
The second set of the Shadows over Innistrad-block, Eldritch Moon, started off with a spoiler card with tentacles. Emrakul, the third and lost Eldrazi titan emerged as the shadow over Innistrad. Discussions and rumors were true, the clues were there, but nobody actually believed or wanted to believe this happening. The response to this supersecret […]
Inverting Like a Boss
If you’re a fan of Yu-Gi-Oh, which you probably are to be reading this, you must see this film. It takes only a couple of minutes to take us back to our childhoods. The familiar smug face of Kaiba opens the movie which is shortly followed by the gang. It feels like a reunion with […]

Intro deck guide – Oath of the Gatewatch
Magic: The Gathering recently welcomed in the new set, Shadows Over Innistrad, and with this new release we have the ever present intro packs. Time and again people always ask which intro pacck is best, so I cracked open every deck, grabbed a friend and played tonnes of matches to see which one would be […]
Brewing with Enchantments
With the new expansion set Oath of the Gatewatch, five new intro decks are also introduced. These preconstructed decks, together with two boosters, are an easy way to start playing a casual and fun 1v1 game of Magic, or are great for starting players. The decks are an excellent way to dive right into the […]
Battle for Zendikar has certainly had an impact on standard, maybe not as huge as many would hope, since Jeskai and Abzan still seem to dominate the format, but an impact nonetheless. One of the most interesting things to me is to think of which older cards deserve the spotlight! Today I had a hard […]
