Starting on Friday at 6:00 pm a server will open up that coordinates matches. The game will be announced at that point, and skeleton code for a bot will be provided. The game is relatively simple, requires two bots for a match, involves chance, and is a partial information game. Each match will involve ~30 actions per player, resulting in quick matches. NPC bots will be provided to play against, in addition to bots run by the players. Statistics will be collected on all games played and published to help in improving player bots. The event will end after 48 hours, Sunday at 6:00 pm.
Note that there is no requirement for players be on site at any point during this competition, but there will be a collaborative environment and activities related to this theme at the space all day Saturday.
