Yesteday, Magic: The Gathering Head Designer, Mark Rosewater, issued a public apology on Twitter after conducting an insensitive game as a means to reveal his preview card, Fabled Passage, from Core Set 2021.

In the past, Rosewater has played games with his Twitter followers as a way to encourage engagement and generally have more fun with card previews. This time however, Rosewater received backlash over his choice of game, Hangman, to unveil the reprinting of Fabled Passage, to which he issued a prompt apology, stating that it was “an insensitive decision on my part in the current climate.”
