Today’s show covers a topic my guest James Hsu and I have been planning to cover for a very long time. Because of James’ upbringing in Vancouver, frequent travels to and interactions with Europe,  and newfound home in Beijing, he’s one of the few players out there with an expert knowledge of many different Magic scenes and cultures. In this episode of Everyday Eternal, he provides some fascinating insight into many aspects of Chinese Magic — and why he expects it to explode in popularity in the near future.
Table of contents:

* Cultural Differences between North American, European and Chinese Magic
* Legacy Tournament Scene in China
* Chinese Magic Content Creators and relation with “Western” Scene
* Magic on Chinese Social Media — Bigger than Twitch!
* Why MTG Arena will be a Game Changer in China
* The Chinese Secondary Market
* Discussion of the so-called “Chinese Fakes”
