Description [en]

Magarena is a single-player fantasy card game played against a computer opponent. The rules for Magarena are based on the Magic: The Gathering.

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 14000 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.

Magarena is a java application that runs on Windows, Linux and Mac OSX. It requires the latest version of Java runtime 8. If you are using the Mac it is recommended that you install the JDK edition of java instead of just the JRE. You will also need approximately one gigabyte of free space on a hard drive to store all the playable card images and two gigabytes if you want to store images for all possible cards. The minimum screen resolution is 1024 x 600.

Magarena History

Magarena 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 it became open source in November 2010. This generated a lot a valuable input and some nice contributions which finally resulted in the gold release in April 2011.

The project was continued in May 2011 under a new maintainer, Melvin. Since then, more developers have joined the project and we release a new update every month.



Internet Connection

Magarena attempts to connect directly to the internet for the following reasons -

• Automatically checking to see whether a new version is available at startup.
• Once per day, if you select "Firemind Top Decks" when starting a new duel or selecting a deck in the Deck Editor it will download the latest top decks from Project Firemind.
• If you choose to download card images.
• If you choose to run a Project Firemind worker.

These may trigger an alert if you have a firewall running.

Download new card images

For obvious reasons the downloaded zip file does not contain any card images - at the time of writing there are over 14,000 cards which can be viewed in the Card Explorer which requires approximately one and a half gigabytes of disk space for the images.

Card images can easily be downloaded using the Download Card Images dialog. Proxy settings can be updated in the Preferences dialog.
