    About Magarena

    Magarena is a single-player fantasy card game played against a computer opponent. The rules
     
    for Magarena are based on (but not excactly the same as) the first modern collectible card game
     
    . It focuses on an advanced AI and easy to use interface. It is written in Java and Swing. You play a duel against the computer with 40 card generated decks or any constructed deck. At the moment there are about 5000 cards supported. The computer AI is capable and fast. The game fully enforces the rules. It is possible to undo moves. A comprehensive card browser is available. This game should run well on most computers. The minimum screen resolution is 1024x768. A Java runtime 6 is required to play.

    History
    Magarena was developed over a time span of two years. It was designed and developed by ubeefx as a hobby project. The name is a contraction of mage and arena. Development started in June 2009 and was managed at  arena-card-game
     
    . It became open source in November 2010. This generated a lot a valuable input and some nice contributions which finally resulted into the gold release in April 2011. An official fork of the project was started at this site and new developments continue here.

    Giving this game an outstanding AI was one of the main goals that ubeefx wanted to achieve. This is also the main aspect that people like the most about Magarena coming from all feedback. The functional and user friendly UI together with the overall stability of the program are also appreciated.
