Description

Card Vault provides a single, unified tool that enables collectible card and miniatures game players to easily manage their collections AND design winning decks for all their favorite games.

Card Vault has two primary goals for players of collectible card and miniatures games. For the collector, Card Vault enables users to easily track their collections, including their want lists, trade lists, and collection value. However, Card Vault is much more than just a simple database, offering facilities that are specifically designed to make inventory management quick and painless. And it's all managed through an intuitive point-and-click interface.

For the player, Card Vault offers a suite of sophisticated tools for deck design and tuning. Cards can be filtered and sorted on virtually any combination of criteria you want. You can view profiles of your deck, such as mana curves, resource costs, and other key information that influences a strong deck. You can view deck statistics, such as the average twilight cost, composition percentages, or the total army cost for Mage Knight. You can even track the probability of drawing card combinations, allowing you to tune your deck for any number of combinations. Card Vault also monitors your deck against the appropriate rules for the game, flagging all instances where your deck is invalid.

At the heart of Card Vault is a general purpose engine for both inventory management and deck design, enabling Card Vault to adapt to the nuances of each game system. The particulars of each game system are encapsulated in a set of data files that Card Vault uses to configure itself for the game. These data files are separate from Card Vault and provided as free downloads that are retrieved directly by the product. This method allows the data files to be updated regularly as new supplements are released for games, and it allows user to download the specific files for the games they want. Complete documentation on creating and/or customizing data files is also available in the form of the Authoring Kit.
