So, this is a game heavily based in statistics, and I find that interaction with fiction and the artistic medium of card art, and game mechanic design pretty inspiring stuff at the end of the day.

What sorts of graphs apply to the design of a card game or the statistical information based around card draw.

I'm going to go look it up and read up on it when I get a chance, but I figured "The hell it can't hurt to just ask."



@why?

Well I wanted to draw something that uses something of the graphs and some of the visual aspects of the statistics involved and take some time to sit down, and really do a nice drawing combining those elements.

Doesn't necessarily have to do directly with card draw statistics but you know...something that's based in design of abilities and balance or what have you.

You may like http://hexmetrics.ni.tl/tools/resourceDraw on my site, and http://hexmetrics.ni.tl/blog/n/using-the-resource-and-threshold-calculator with some other uses; that's about the most complex math that's involved (draw without replacement) without taking specific mechanics into account (though, escalation and deck manipulation abilities are something I'd like to model a little later on).
