Wizards of the Coast (often referred to as WotC or simply Wizards) is a publisher of games, primarily based on fantasy and science fiction themes. Originally a basement-run role-playing game publisher, they popularized the collectible card game genre with Magic: The Gathering in the mid-1990s. Today they publish board games, collectible card games and role-playing games.
Magic: The Gathering
Magic: The Gathering is a trading card game (TCG) or collectable card game (CCG) created by Richard Garfield and published by Wizards of the Coast (WotC). Often considered the game that put WotC on the map, it has been hugely successful for more than a decade now, making it the most long-lived game of its kind. It has spawned several books and comics, which explain some of the story behind the characters and spells featured in the cards.
