Business Needs

Magic: the Gathering is a card game featuring collectable cards (TCG – Trading Card Game), currently played worldwide by more than 20 million people. Created in 1993, Magic was the first ever TCG to be produced and continues to be produced to date, having now over 40.000 cards.

With a primary market appraised at about 300.00€ and a secondary market estimated to be above the 10B€ mark, there is a great opportunity to create a single platform, centralized and with an international scope that allows players and collectors to buy and sell cards more easily as well as having access to relevant information about cards, collections, tournaments and auctions.

Solution

The MTG4ALL Web platform was developed with the goal of becoming the main platform for purchasing, selling and trading collectable Magic: the Gathering cards, removing the ‘middle men’ and their respective fees as well as being capable of operating worldwide. With MTG4ALL, players and collectors have the opportunity to register as sellers or buyers and trade their cards and collections on the platform. The MTG4ALL users also have access to an array of relevant information on prices, cards, decks, collections and tournaments, which are available on several languages and currencies as well as access to exclusive auctions inside the platform. Given that MTG4ALL uses Microsoft Azure, it can handle an enormous amount of data for the research and trade of the existing over 40.000 collectable cards, whilst providing a fast interface and pleasant user experience.

Benefits

With the delivered solution, MTG4ALL has the opportunity to offer its users a range of unique services on a worldwide scale. Features such as exclusive auctions and the subscriptions model, eliminate the typical ‘middle men’ fee and in turn cause the card prices to be lower than usual. More affordable card prices aid in generating user interest and keeping the loyalty of the Magic: the Gathering community.
