I'm building a new open source Arimaa bot!
 
https://github.com/ajzaff/bot_zoo
 
I started bot_zoo a two weeks ago as hobby project, and it's  coming along nicely! My intent is to build as strong as possible a core engine, then optimize the evaluation bits (static eval, and move orders) using self play building on some previous work of mine (https://github.com/ajzaff/arimeval).
 
I'm not sure if this qualifies me for the 2021 bot championship but it's likely I wouldn't be ready anyways Smiley
 
Current engine features:
 
* Movegen
* Alpha beta negamax search
* Iterative deepening
* Transposition table
* PV move order
* Aspiration windows
* Null move
* Quiescence
* Parallel search with variance-boosting lazy SMP (https://www.chessprogramming.org/Lazy_SMP).
* Arimaa Engine Interface
 
How does it play?
 
Beginner level play capable of seeing up to 3 move ply. The good news is, I think I'm already at the point where I can't improve it much without hand tuning but we'll see.
 
If you are interested in seeing the bot development on Github, please let me know so I can make the switch to 100% on Github development.
