I believe that the trading card game of the name "force of will" is a clone of magic the gathering because of the almost exact abilities like flying.
Zarroette

Con

Thank you, SQzombie, for instigating this debate.


Definition

A key term in the resolution is "clone", of which my opponent has not provided a definition for. Allow me to provide a reasonable definition:

Clone -- a person or thing that duplicates, imitates, or closely resembles another in appearance, function, performance, or style [1]

As you can see, the minimum requirement of Pro is that Force of Will TCG "closely resembles" Magic: The Gathering.


Counter-Arguments

Now, since it has been established that both card games needs to "closely resemble" each other, in order for Pro to affirm the resolution, the meagre argument that they closely resemble because "the almost exact abilities flying", is insufficient to affirm the resolution. The reasons beings:

1) Pro has provided a bare assertion, which is a logical fallacy [2]. This occurred due to Pro not providing evidence that (1) there are abilities in both games, and (2) the abilities closely resemble. Not a shred of evidence is provided for either facet.

2) In the case hat Pro can affirm the above, the TCGs are not wholly about abilities, meaning that there are other factors that into consideration, and in reality, are actually different. For example, the colour types for MTG has: White — Plains, Blue — Islands. Black — Swamps, Red — Mountains and Green — Forests [3], whilst the colour types for Force of Will has: Light, Fire, Water, Wind and Darkness [4]. Evidently, these are not the same, hence they do not closely resemble.


In short summary, Pro has yet to provided enough positive impact to affirm the resolution. Since I am Con, and I do not need to prove the inverse of the resolution to win, I await elaboration.
