Per Game Possible Move Graphs

Thursday, 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

Arimaa Branching Factor

I’ve recently been taking a look at the branching factor in Arimaa. You can take a look at my results here.

FAME Scoring

Monday, January 23rd, 2006

Wrote a small page (here) yesterday that computes the FAME score for a given situation in Arimaa. Of course it will probably make no sense unless you follow arimaa rather closely. :) If you haven’t heard of arimaa and ever had any moderate interest in chess you should really go check it out. It’s quite easy to learn and fun, yet still has a great deal of unexplored strategic depth.
