Dominate! (Or let your computer do it for you.) presented at Notacon 2014

by Paul Jarc,

Summary : Dominion is a deck-building card game–a bit like Magic: The Gathering, except that choosing the cards to include in your deck is part of the gameplay. A random subset of cards is available to choose from, so a significant part of the decision-making happens before the first turn: evaluating which card combos will work well and counteract other combos that your opponents might use. In this session, you’ll choose a strategy for a given set of cards and learn to express that strategy in a simple scripting language. Then we’ll pit our bots against each other to see how they fare. Bringing a computer is recommended.
