As a child, I played a card game called 'Magic: The Gathering.' Recently I learned of the draft cube format, wherein multiple players 'draft' cards from randomly-created packs drawn from a fixed pool of cards (the 'cube'). This means that I can play the game with my friends, but don't have to constantly buy new cards to keep up with the contemporary metagame. To facilitate the creation and maintenance of my cube, I created an online cube editor using the Ruby on Rails framework.

Since my cube lives in a box that once housed a bottle of Booker's bourbon, it is called 'The Whiskeycube.' Because the website is for creating draft cubes, seemed an appropriate URL.

The website will remain live for the foreseeable future because I very much like The Whiskeycube and would like to share it with others. However, since I don't plan on altering the cube's composition any time soon, I will no longer be adding new cardsets to

The Power Nine are proxied, not real cards.
