Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


The card game MAGIC: THE GATHERING is a trading card game (TCG) where players are required to build their own deck of cards to play a game. This is a time-consuming and skill-intensive task. In this paper, we demonstrate how a deck building task can be described as a configuration task. Furthermore, we show how this task can be supported in terms of a configurator application. We sketch related configuration knowledge representations, the user interface of our configurator, and point out issues for future work.
