The hard marketing lesson of Fallen Empires

In the mid-1990s, the Fallen Empires expansion proved to be a bridge too far to cross for Magic: The Gathering, printing an extremely high number of cards.

In 1995, the Ice Age card Chub Toad saw print. It was an in-joke and ended up with a sequel 26 years later.
