Appellant challenges the Examiner’s determination that “a set of rules qualifies as an abstract idea.” Br. 6 (citing Research Corp. Techs., Inc. v. Microsoft Corp., 627 F.3d 859 (Fed. Cir. 2010)). See also id. at 8 (arguing that “the Examiner has not identified clearly what the ‘abstract idea’ is” and that “[g]ame rules are submitted to be concrete, rather than abstract, because game rules set out how the game is to be played by all of the players.”).
...
Appellant argues that the Examiner’s admission that the method of claim 1 sets out physical steps and the Examiner’s determination that claim 1 is claiming an abstract idea are contradictory. Br. 4. See also id. at 8 (arguing that because claim 1 contains physical steps, this should end the inquiry into whether claim 1 claims an abstract idea). We find no contradiction in the determination that a method claim which includes physical steps is wholly directed to a patent ineligible abstract idea. See, e.g., In re Grams, 888 F.2d 835, 840 (Fed. Cir. 1989) (“The presence of a physical step in the claim to derive data for the algorithm will not render the claim statutory.”). Further, we agree with the Examiner that the claimed physical method steps are not tied to a particular machine and do not transform the cards into a different state or thing.

We have held that mere ‘[data-gathering] step[s] cannot make an otherwise nonstatutory claim statutory.”’ In re Grams, 888 F.2d 835, 840 (Fed. Cir. 1989) (quoting In re Meyer, 688 F.2d 789, 794 (CCPA 1982))).

Appellant did not challenge the Examiner’s taking of Official Notice or otherwise persuade us or error in that finding. See In re Fox, 471 F.2d 1405, 1406-07 (CCPA 1973) (affirming rejection under 35 U.S.C. § 103 without citation of any prior art based on facts that were unchallenged by the appellant); see also In re Ahlert, 424 F.2d 1088, 1091 (CCPA 1970).
