If you have the opportunity to play MTG at home you can still enjoy it in Paper. But let's be honest, it gets old playing the same person over and over unless you change decks inbetween matches. Even the same 2 or 3 people.
We used to have 60+ people show up every Tuesday night for that, but now we have angry parents telling us we're disappointing their kids by not letting them come and play.
Except Paper Magic wasn't designed to be a "take home and play" board game
I take great comfort in knowing that anyone who cries the doom of paper magic has no idea how any thing actually functions and can be safely ignored.

Quote from WarMachinePrime »LGS will fail or survive. LGS will return in time. It sucks, it isn't "fair". But its where we are at. Adapt and find your own answers. Patience and persistence is needed. Magic and gaming in general isn't over. Its changing. Hang in there. The LGS had to end at some point. Why do we continue to latch onto things that no longer serve us according to God, especially If it's distracting us from getting closer to Him? Luke 16:13 says that no one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money. It's hard because when it comes to gaming it glorifies ourselves more than it glorifies God. It doesn't necessarily mean that you hate God when it means that He's no longer the top priority to you while you're gaming which also kind of ties into the Lukewarm Christian mindset.

I think this sort of speaks to the "manchild" mentality of young millennials (like myself whose also part Generation X)
Eventually as we get older we have to rely on ourselves more than others just to survive in this ever changing world we live in and I think that's one of the cruel lessons I learned about the COVID-19 pandemic.
It's real easy to allow nostalgia to cloud our judgment on things that don't match what is or isn't culturally relevant by today's societal norms.
I would say no store is worth operating for less than $10k/week.
The question is will it be enough to reach that $1,000 a month threshold in order to break even.
