Hello dear aigames.com users,
You guys are currently going crazy with the Warlight AI Challenge and some bots are doing very well playing this game. As you probably know, we're going to host the finals of this competition in May and then some of you will take some of the prize money.
After the finals are over, this competition will still be available to play, but we'll be hosting another one as well, which we are currently working on. Some rumors we're already going around, but we can confirm that this will be a poker competition. Keep an eye on the forums for further announcements on what form this poker competition will take.
But now back to why I'm creating this discussion. We are looking to continually create new competitions. Some will be other forms of old competitions, like multiplayer Warlight for example, but we also want totally new ones. Any suggestions for new competitions can be posted here and we would be very happy to discuss this with you all.
Help us out and maybe everybody will be creating bots for your competition in the future!

well, captain obvious ideas for competitions: - battleship - tron
those aren't quite unique, but do have challenges like the current Warlight competition

If you do another thing like Warlight, you should see if you can reduce the randomness, 6 armise should be able to take 2 armies. I know Warlight has a way to limit their randomness, maybe they could help.

Wow Jim, that's great! When will it be announced, after Poker?

Hi guys! My proposition is the football competition. It may be games 3x3 plus goalkeepers. You need to control few players at time and develop team-playing strategy, so it will be interesting)

Other possibility: battling with tanks / robots / ...
Something like RoboCode would be nice
If you guys are ambitious you could go for a "team based" battle with several units,
perhaps with something goal oriented like capture the flag,
or go for a basic RTS game (with map, resource gathereres, fighters, ...)

It's been kind of quiet here for some time so I thought I'd pop in and ask: Is there any new competition coming up soon? I'd love something like Amazons (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gameofthe_Amazons). That's a game that hasn't been analyzed to death and it's also quite difficult to write a computer program for. AND it's scalable, so if you want quicker games you can scale it down to 8x8 instead of 10x10.

Thanks, great suggestion, hadn't heard of it before.
The reason things have been quiet lately is because we're working on a new platform, but once that's finished you'll be seeing more games than ever before. In the meantime we're working on a new game for theaigames as well, which should be done pretty soon.
