You've proven yourself that you could code a MTG engine. In my position, I would now either move on to something new, or keep improving/refactoring the exiting.And I do agree with this. New = fun. On a side note I'm learning Clojure, a Lisp-like language that runs on the Java Virtual Machine. Clojure can use Java classes and likewise, Java can use Clojure. Clojure's name comes from "Java" + "closure". Clojure.org
