1. What does MTG stand for in gaming?

Magic: The Gathering

To Planeswalkers around the world, MTG stands for Magic: The Gathering. Magic is a popular collectible card game (CCG) that allows players to assume the role of dueling wizards, who cast spells and summon creatures to defeat their opponents. Initially released in 1993, MTG has spawned a series of knock-offs and competitors, but it continues to be one of the world's best-selling CCGs.

Before playing a game of Magic, players (who are sometimes referred to as Planeswalkers) must construct a deck composed of land cards and spell cards. Land cards provide the energy that players use to cast their spells. Spells allows players to summon creatures, enhance their own abilities, or hinder their opponents, all in service of reducing an opponent's life points to 0 (thereby winning the game).

Magic's initial release (Magic: The Gathering Alpha) contained 295 unique cards that players could use to construct their decks. Nearly 30 years later, MTG now contains over 20,000 unique cards. While Magic's depth might seem overwhelming, new players can learn the game by visiting their LGS or downloading and playing Magic: The Gathering Arena.

2. What is mtg short for?


In business settings, especially, mtg is often used in place of "meeting." You may encounter this abbreviation in work emails, calendar invites, and chat messages.

For example, a co-worker who asks whether you are "Free for mtg at 4 o'clock?" wants to know whether you are available to meet at 4. (In some nerdy workplaces, this could instead be a request to play Magic: The Gathering.) Workplaces that hold meetings frequently are most likely to use the mtg abbreviation - because their employees need the extra time for their incredibly worthwhile meetings.

3. What does MTG stand for in U.S. politics?

Marjorie Taylor Greene

In U.S. politics, MTG refers to "Marjorie Taylor Greene," who is a Republican politician. Greene was elected to represent Georgia's 14th congressional district in November 2020 and first took office in January 2021.

Greene is most well-known for publicly supporting far-right conspiracy theories, including QAnon, Pizzagate, and the regular occurrence of false flag shootings. For example, Greene has claimed that multiple school shootings, as well as the 2017 mass shooting that occurred in Las Vegas, were false flag operations.

Because of Greene's connections to extremists and her endorsement of violence against her fellow Representatives, in February 2021, the House of Representatives voted to remove Greene from her places on the Budget Committee and Education and Labor Committee. The move to remove Greene garnered bipartisan support, with 11 Republicans joining Democrats to censure the freshman Representative.
