Last year, Dr. Heidenreich of Loras College explained how to use win ratings between Magic The Gathering decks to predict what mix of decks would be played in a tournament. This time we'll actually try it out! We'll begin by playing a quick tournament using supplied introduction Magic decks and then use the data we collect from that tournament to predict which would be popular over the long haul. Decks will be provided, but a basic understanding of the game is assumed. For ages 10 and up. Snacks will be provided.
