Magic: the Gathering is a card game that represents a story generally involving two spell-casting demigods who create their own armies and artifacts from a collection of spells. Players construct their own deck of spell cards that they use to defend themselves and defeat their enemies. Sometimes all players create decks using the same “card pool” and sometimes they collect the cards on their own.

Baby Steps is a fan made Magic set made to teach people how to play Magic using multiple levels of difficulty. The beginner level of Baby Steps is a much easier way to play (or perhaps the easiest).

There were some “beginner” level Magic sets made in the past called Portal, but even Portal was much more complicated than the beginner level of Baby Steps.

The cards

Here are links to PDF files that contain the cards. The cards images can be cut out and pasted onto real Magic cards:

  1. Cards 1-9
  2. Cards 10-18
  3. Cards 19-27
  4. Cards 28-36
  5. Cards 37-45
  6. Cards 46-50

Simplified Rulebook (Updated 11/28/13)

I wrote this rulebook that can be used with the beginner version of Baby Steps, which is only six pages (much less than the hundreds of pages that real Magic uses).
