Description Edit | History

Yavalath is an abstract strategy game for two players. Players strive to make a straight line of 4 pieces of their colour, but lose if they make a line of 3 before doing so.

The board (a hexagon 5 spaces on a side) is initially empty. Players take turns placing a piece of their colour on an empty cell.

Yavalath was invented / discovered by a game-generating computer program developed by Cameron Browne as part of his Ph.D. research.

8 Yavalath AI Player
Yavalath AI player in Java. The AI uses an enhanced version of UCT since Yavalath is a "Monte Carlo resistant" game that gives misleading results from strictly random play, as losing moves are more numerous than winning moves. The enhancement is to filter out losing moves from the playouts and choose a winning move if one exists.
