The research should be done in proper manner before creating your internet marketing strategy. I believe that the paid marketing options are very popular nowadays because they are able to get you instant results. That’s why I suggested the PPC Adwords Campaign Management approach to my sister for her newly launched blog.

More moves which do not work in this position:
 
1. rd6s Ee6w Rf6x Ed6w         Ec6x rd5n  (from first post)
2. rd6s Ee6w Rf6x Ed6w         Ec6x dd7s  
3.          Ee6s Rf6x Ee5n Ee6e Ef6x rd6e  
4.          Ee6n Rf6x Ee5s Ee6e Ef6x rd6e  
 
All this moves have in common:
- the gold rabbit is captured passiv with first step
- the gold elephant captures itself with third step
- the 4th step pull by captured elephant is not allowed
(- all 4 steps are used  
not neccessary; reproduced bug with 3 steps in other position)

Thanks @eykca. Yeah the traps actually slide open to drop pieces into the storage drawer below.

I certainly don't think we need such a high standard to say that computers have passed up humanity at playing Arimaa, but let's say we really do want the Challenge to measure this standard.  My hunch is that software which can beat three top humans each two games out of three (after having been exposed to community play for two weeks) must be very close, even if it isn't all the way there.  If humans soon discover a reliable way to beat such software, it is probably due to a minor quirk that can soon be fixed rather than seriously flawed strategy which worked only due to surprise.  Our understanding of Arimaa is probably mature enough that there isn't some strategy trick nobody has thought of yet, which pushes a bot past us only temporarily without heralding the end of human dominance.  In all likelihood, the error of the current format would only be in awarding the prize one year too soon.

 
Looks like this was largely correct.

Curious if anyone has made progress on this challenge. I found this interesting tutorial the other day that could be used as a starting point:

Note: for some reason the link above includes a space that you have to remove for it to work. I can't seem to get rid of it in this post.

Thanks eykca. Would love to play a game with a human. I mostly play on my iPhone, but that doesn't build up my profile on this site. Need to make an effort to climb the bot ladder here too. I kinda wish there was a club nearby (I'm in southern California) to play someone in real life. To solve this problem I plan to teach some friends and family.  Anyway, hope to see ya online soon!

I was playing around with the custom position setup feature. It's awesome! It's exactly what I was looking for to help work through problems in the Arimaa: Strategies and Tactics book. It is very similar to the Analysis Board feature on Lichess.
 
Is it possible for the custom board setup to have a START from this position feature and then have a move list off to the side. That way if I want to work through a variation, I can then snap back to the starting position.  
 
The only other thing I was thinking about, and this is just me listing pie in the sky stuff, is a rough computer analysis of the position. That way if I'm working through a problem from the book and I pull my patented "why don't you just do this" the computer can quickly show a refutation.
 
If I worked on something as hard as I am sure you have on this, I wouldn't take "just add this" stuff very well, but I got the impression you wanted some feedback and the such. Again, I greatly appreciate your effort, it makes me want to keep playing the game.
