Per Game Possible Move Graphs

March 30th, 2006

I’ve been wanting to give turbogears a try and finally had an idea a little while back for a little project to try. The idea was a small online app that will show you a graph with the number of moves available for each player throughout a game of arimaa. The result is the Arimaa Game Grapher.

I also grouped all my arimaa related things together with aka “Janzert’s Arimaa Projects“. :P

What game to host?

July 31st, 2004

Specialist’s have been debating recently on what new game to host on our server. There isn’t really any alternative game besides CS that a significant number of members play. But since we have the power and bandwidth sitting there we might as well use it. So since I’m the one running the beast I’ve been researching some of the different games.
