bootwar: Nonparametric Bootstrap Test with Pooled Resampling Card Game

The card game War is simple in its rules but can be lengthy. In another domain, the nonparametric bootstrap test with pooled resampling (nbpr) methods, as outlined in Dwivedi, Mallawaarachchi, and Alvarado (2017) <doi:10.1002/sim.7263>, is optimal for comparing paired or unpaired means in non-normal data, especially for small sample size studies. However, many researchers are unfamiliar with these methods. The 'bootwar' package bridges this gap by enabling users to grasp the concepts of nbpr via Boot War, a variation of the card game War designed for small samples. With the shuffle_cards() function, players can engage in Boot War using a standard 52-card deck, a custom deck created via an anonymous function, or interleaved custom decks where each player has their distinct deck. The package further provides functions like deal_card(), score_keeper(), and play_round() to streamline gameplay and scoring. Once a predetermined number of rounds concludes, users can employ the analyze_game() function to derive game results. This function leverages the 'npboottprm' package's nonparboot() to report nbpr results and, for comparative analysis, also reports results from the 'stats' package's t.test() function. Additionally, 'bootwar' features an interactive 'shiny' web application, bootwar(). This offers a user-centric interface to experience Boot War, enhancing understanding of nbpr methods across various distributions, sample sizes, number of bootstrap resamples, and confidence intervals.
