About Magilogical

Magilogical is an epic battle between Wizards and Dragons for supremacy over the Mythical Land of Ict. By using spells based on the rules of Logic you must defeat your opponents and emerge victorious.

About Here Be Dragons

The #HereBeDragons project was created to introduce children to concepts of computer science through a fantasy world of wizards and dragons. The project introduces concepts such as binary, algorithms and computational thinking.

The Magilogical card game introduces the concept of Logic Gates - a fundamental building block of electronics and computers - through a fun and easy-to-play game which could be described as Top Trumps with a Twist.

The images below are intended to give an indication of what the final game will look like - they are not final designs. More images will appear as the designs are completed.

The game is designed so that it can be played by children as young as 5 but would be suitable for all ages. The game was created to be used with children in Year 5 (9 -10) as part of their Computing Curriculum.

The game takes between 10 and 30 minutes to play.

Rules

The youngest player selects whether to play as the Wizards or the Dragons.  

Each player receives their 16 Character Cards and holds them face up. The 16 Spell cards are placed in a pile face down on the table. Player One (Wizard) selects the top Spell Card and places it face up so the other player can see the spell.  

  • If the Spell Card is the Spell of Not: Wizard chooses one category from their card and one category from the Dragon’s card - the wizard must lose the round to win the battle.  
  • If the Spell Card is the Spell of And: Wizard chooses two categories from their card and two categories from the Dragon’s Card - the Wizard must win both rounds to win the battle.   
  • If the Spell Card is the Spell of Or: Wizard chooses two categories from their card and two categories from the Dragon’s Card - the Wizard must win one or both rounds to win the battle.  
  • If the Spell Card is the Spell of Nor: Wizard chooses two categories from their card and two categories from the Dragon’s Card - the Wizard must lose both rounds to win the battle.  
  • If the Spell Card is the Spell of Nand: Wizard chooses two categories from their card and two categories from the Dragon’s Card - the Wizard must lose one or both rounds to win the battle.  
  • If the Spell Card is the Spell of Xor: Wizard chooses two categories from their card and two categories from the Dragon’s Card - the Wizard must win one and lose one round to win the battle. The losing card is placed on the Discard Pile.  

The Dragon now selects a spell. Repeat until either the Wizard or the Dragon has lost all their cards.
