what does scoop mean?

Asked by leon_raymond 11 years ago

unfortunately, i'm not too good with the current jargon. What does it mean when you scoop to something?

"Scooping" refers to picking up your cards. It means that you're forfeiting the game.

Hey, be nice. Not everyone knows MtG lexicon. There's a lot of strange terms thrown around out there. And we all learn them somewhere; we certainly don't know them from the instant we start playing. =p Leon just had the guts to say "hey, I don't know what this means" rather than doing what a lot of us do and just pretending until we figure it out.

i;ve been playing since 94 and i didn' tknow what 'scoop' meant. Maybe i could've guessed if i saw it in context, but it's true, this game promotes a weird and richly flavorful subculture that comes with it's own lingo, and not everyone who plays dips into that.

I have a friend whose Dad is a English Prof. and he came with us to FNM so that he could observe our interesting use of the English language.

well emotions don't really translate well over the interwebz, so a lot of people inferred you were being very condescending.

Which I'm afraid I started because I had been having a bad day before I posted, filled with lots of short-tempered idiots, which made me quick to assume you were being condescending when I had absolutely no basis for that.

I'd like to apologize for my jumping to conclusions. Especially since it led so many to make the same jump, apparently. =p
