Mini Project 1 - Adversarial Search

[ CSE 573 2004 Autumn Home | Problem Sets | Mini Project 2 ]

In this project you should pick a game (some suggestions below), implement board manipulation functions, implement a min-max or alpha-beta search algorithm and explore some interesting ideas as time permits. For example,

Regardless of what you choose, your objective should be to conduct an experiment so that you can report on it in your report.

I think it is a great idea if several groups choose to do the same game. You could have fun by pitting the programs against each other in a tournament (note that this isn't a subsitute for some controlled experiments as a basis for your report). But even if you don't choose to battle the programs, you could probably save considerable time by sharing the job of building infrastructure (board viewer etc).

Here are some resources that you may find helpful when considering which game to choose.
