Dice Rolling & Coin Flipping
Extra game effects
|Development code||Wacky Set|
Unglued is a Magic: The Gathering expansion set, the first silver-bordered, Magic: The Gathering expansion set released. It came out in August 1998. Its symbol is a cracked egg. Among the themes of the set were chicken, dice rolling and multiplayer Magic games. Although initially created as non-tournament legal, the "Unglued" set as a whole is not directly banned in the current tournament rules as of 2014.  The lack of the "Unhatached" set exclusion in the current Tournament rules makes this set still playable and valid in one class of the MTG tournaments. The class that by default allows the play of "Unhatched" is "Vintage Tournament" which consist of all years and all formats of deck construction.
Unglued was originally conceived by then-lead Magic designer Joel Mick and fellow designer Bill Rose. Having helped in the creation of many of the expansion sets of the time, they began talking about cards which were cut from the expansion or were unplayable, based on the initial rules of the game. Thinking this through, they conceptualized an expansion where all the cards followed a less serious manner of play.
Unglued was not entirely a commercially successful expansion, but the unique basic land cards - the only cards from the set legal in all tournaments - were and still are valuable. The set also developed a cult following among casual Magic fans, and eventually a sequel set, Unhinged, was released in 2004.
Unglued secret message
All 94 cards in the Unglued set each had a single word printed on the bottom of the card. Alone these single words made little or no sense but when combined in proper numerical order with other cards in the series spell out the following secret message:

In a duel and taking a lickin'...
The wizard exclaimed, "I'm no chicken...."
"I'm facing defeat,..."
"But the next time we meet,..."
"You're in for a nasty butt kickin'."
