 1   Arimaa / General Discussion / Re: Handicap system for beginners ?  Jun 22nd, 2018, 8:26am 
Started by pago | Last post by DakotaEverard
Arimaa Fast Rules said about handicap the following:
When one player is more experienced or older than another the games can become one sided. To make the game more
balanced the stronger player can play with a handicap by using one less rabbit or other piece. The stronger the piece you
remove the more the handicap. In some cases the stronger player may need to take out more than one piece.
 
About supporting handicap games i.e. arimaa here is article from github
 
Hope this information will be helpful for you. Besides, I would be grateful if you will visit my website

What's your take on this attempt at a playable go variant on a hex board?

I think Nick would agree that Blooms is quite exemplary for an inside out invention with a matching organic behaviour. The basic idea was to reduce the large number of liberties on a hex grid and Nick's solution is brilliantly simple. Characteristically the implications of Blooms' behaviour are, while still under investigation, surprising already, as the article shows. A great find!

At this rate, there could be a challenge to create a game, let AI play itself, and then defeat the AI at the game.

 
Such a game can't be created, an AI that plays itself means it has genetically developed to know how to respond to all moves made (AlphaZero evaluates 80K moves per second - https://www.chess.com/forum/view/general/alpha-zero-stockfish-number-of- moves-per-second-vs-hardware-debate). The only way to beat it would be to either start the game with a forced win for the player, or make the game have some luck factor in it.

 6   Arimaa / Bot Development / Re: Sharp 2015 available for download  May 20th, 2018, 10:57am 
Started by lightvector | Last post by elescondite
That's pretty cool, lightvector.  I downloaded it, though I haven't tried running it yet.
 
My bot (bot_eliminator) is continuing to teach itself the game.  It's a very slow process, though I have been encouraged by recent improvements it has made.  You can see it in its rating, which is gradually improving after remaining flat for quite a while.  I've actually begun working on an improvement to the learning process, but implementing it is going to take quite a bit of time.  If only I could make AI research my full-time day job…
 
Your bot has provided the standard to beat.  Nice work developing Sharp.  My goal continues to be to create a self-taught bot that is competitive with Sharp, and hopefully can beat it someday.  Maybe we can resume the computer championship matches at some point when there is realistic competition available.
 
Until then, congratulations on being the developer of the most powerful Arimaa player in the world.

 7   Arimaa / Events / 2015 prediction contest prizes  May 17th, 2018, 1:23pm

Hi!
 
I don't think the 2015 prediction contest prizes were ever paid out (at least not in my case).  I would like to get that resolved before I run out of Arimaa points.  Thanks!

 8   Arimaa / General Discussion / Lunch with SilverMitt  May 13th, 2018, 10:45pm 
Started by rabbits | Last post by rabbits
I had the pleasure of meeting SilverMitt for lunch just over a week ago.  I was glad that we could meet while we were both still in the tournament and was hoping this picture would include the 2018 World Champion.  Alas, not everything goes according to plan.
 

 
At least we got to play an exciting game against each other for third place.

 10   Arimaa / Events / May 2018 One-day Open Swiss  Apr 15th, 2018, 11:44am 
Started by clyring | Last post by clyring
We haven't had much in the way of events outside the world championships in a few years now. I enjoyed the format of the one-day swiss tournaments that were held in 2014 and think now is the right time to bring them back, starting with an event May 12, which should be around the same time this year's championship wraps up. I'm hoping for a good turnout.  
 
(wiki page for the event)
(registration for the event - It doesn't actually affect anything, but I'll feel better if I know people are coming. Smiley)
