I’m really pleased with the progress GXP Blog has made this year. I’ve had the opportunity to review various games, discovered and befriended loads of awesome gamers (you know who you are!), joined some great communities, launched a YouTube channel and most importantly – I’m thoroughly enjoying the journey! But wait, there’s more…

I must admit that I haven’t played an awful lot of golf games in the past. My main experiences were more party-based games featuring Mario or using the Xbox Kinect.

So when I was asked to try out this new game, I thought I’d give it a shot!
As many of you who have been following me on Twitter and YouTube will know, I’m an avid retro gamer! My collection from childhood has given me some great gaming experiences, which I’ll be sharing on the blog and in my videos. Over the years I have unfortunately sold quite a few classics, but I’m on a quest to re-build and improve my retro video game library.
We really enjoy RPGs, so were thrilled when we were asked to try this game! Based on the incredible Magic: The Gathering trading card game, it offers people a chance to learn and play the game who may not be able to attend any organised card games, for whatever reason.
