Wanderer wins Breakthrough tournament

Wanderer wins Breakthrough tournament Breakthrough is a race type game where two opponents are trying to be the first to get one of their pieces into the enemy’s home (Wikipedia, 2017). Breakthrough has attracted researchers for a number of years (Lorentz and Horey, 2014; Lorentz, 2016; Saffidine et al., 2012).The 20th Computer Olympiad of 2017 included a Breakthrough tournament for the third consecutive time. There were five participants, see Table 1. The three participants from National Taiwan Normal University were all students from the same class on game programming where writing a Breakthrough playing program was one of their class projects. The fact they were able to write such strong programs in such a short period of time is impressive.The results of the tournament are shown in Table 2. The event was a double round robin where each program played every other program twice, once with each color. It is unfortunate that Andrew Lin had to depart before the intended play-off, leaving Wanderer to win the gold medal by default.Table 1Participants in the Breakthrough tournament of the 20th Computer OlympiadProgramidAuthorAffiliationAthenaAthYu-Hsun ChenNational Taiwan Normal UniversityDeep NikitaNikAndrew LinUSALittle GiantGiaShr-Tze WanNational Taiwan Normal UniversityR-SpiritRspChe-Kuei ChangNational Taiwan Normal UniversityWandererWanRichard LorentzCalifornia State Univ., Northridge, USATable 2Cross-table and final standings in the Breakthrough tournamentThere http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png ICGA Journal IOS Press

Abstract

Breakthrough is a race type game where two opponents are trying to be the first to get one of their pieces into the enemy’s home (Wikipedia, 2017). Breakthrough has attracted researchers for a number of years (Lorentz and Horey, 2014; Lorentz, 2016; Saffidine et al., 2012).The 20th Computer Olympiad of 2017 included a Breakthrough tournament for the third consecutive time. There were five participants, see Table 1. The three participants from National Taiwan Normal University were all students from the same class on game programming where writing a Breakthrough playing program was one of their class projects. The fact they were able to write such strong programs in such a short period of time is impressive.The results of the tournament are shown in Table 2. The event was a double round robin where each program played every other program twice, once with each color. It is unfortunate that Andrew Lin had to depart before the intended play-off, leaving Wanderer to win the gold medal by default.Table 1Participants in the Breakthrough tournament of the 20th Computer OlympiadProgramidAuthorAffiliationAthenaAthYu-Hsun ChenNational Taiwan Normal UniversityDeep NikitaNikAndrew LinUSALittle GiantGiaShr-Tze WanNational Taiwan Normal UniversityR-SpiritRspChe-Kuei ChangNational Taiwan Normal UniversityWandererWanRichard LorentzCalifornia State Univ., Northridge, USATable 2Cross-table and final standings in the Breakthrough tournamentThere
