Magic the Gathering goes into Space with the "Unfinity" expansion

August 8, 2022 - 10:20am

In July of 1993, then indy publisher Wizards of the Coast released a small, collectible card game by designer Richard Garfield called Magic: The Gathering at the Origins Game Fair in Dallas, Texas. Five years, and fifteen expansions later, Wizards of the Coast released the first of the “Un” expansions for Magic: The Gathering - “Unglued”. The “Un” expansions were sets of humorous cards that weren’t usable in tournaments and introduced interesting new mechanics such as die rolling, acting like a chicken, and even doing the hokey-pokey all in order to trigger card effects.

Keeping with that tradition, Wizards of the Coast has announced the next expansion in the “Un” line “Unfinity”. Unfinity mixes science-fiction with circus, amusement park, and carnival tropes. It will have science-fiction themed, full-art land cards (both basic and new dual lands). Other mechanics will include the return of die rolling as well as stickers for names, art, abilities, and stats allowing players to modify existing cards or even creating their own. The stickers use the same type of adhesive found on “Post-it” notes so it will not harm the cards and is re-usable.

Unfinity is a 224 card seat and is expected to be released on October 7th, 2022.
