Default CFP: Octi Tournament Computer Olympiad

Challenger: Donald Green

OCTI is a simple, yet deep game of strategy designed to give humans an edge
over computers. The basic premise of the game is that players build their
pieces as they play. On each turn, a player must decide whether to move a
piece, improve a piece, or add a new piece to the board. This simple
framework creates an extraordinary array of strategic options and plays to
"human" strengths: long-term planning and heuristic reasoning. GAMES
MAGAZINE named OCTI "Best Abstract Strategy Game of the Year." For a
description of the game and other reviews, visit

OCTI AI Tournament Computer Olympiad 2004

Competitions will be held for the following OCTI variants:

I. OCTI on a 6x7 board

II. OCTI on a 9x9 board, playing to capture all three enemy bases

Each game will be played under a two-hour time limit for each player.
Robot-designers need not be in attendance in order to compete. For the 9x9
games, basic rules apply (i.e., no wrap-around board, no super-prongs).

The OCTI tournament is sponsored by prof. Donald Green (Yale University). He
offers $1000 to the winner of each OCTI tournament.
