Unfortunately, this game wont last long unless playing with friends

Post by Hagardunor »

I did not take me a long time to find out lielow playing pages already published online (although I was just looking for the official website, which as far as I understand does not exist).

These will for sure be used by cheaters to help them in their moves, as it is already the case for Puissance Quatre.

So I may not play much with this interesting game except with friends.

I actually talk with the designer of Lielow quite often, and I am not aware of what you're talking about. What are "playing pages"?

The playing pages won't offer much help at competitive levels, if you mean the computer opponent that you can play against online.

FWIW, the O'dwyer program is deterministic (ie. will always make the same move in a given board position), and, while on average quite competent, there are several lines in which it quickly blunders. As P1, you can win in at most 8 moves, and as P2 in at most 6. The AiAi engine is probably a bigger problem, but if my experience from other games is any indicator, it is probably weaker than a competent, dedicated human player, even at high thinking times. I'm personally weaker than the engine, but it can sometimes hang a mate in 2.
