I had a go at playing this game today. It looks very good and as an exercise in AI it seems more difficult for computers to master than chess (and yet can be played on a standard chess set).

Arimaa (pronounced Ah-REE-ma) is a very deep strategy game with simple rules. It was designed to be:


Playable with a standard chess set.
Easy to learn.
Difficult for computers (the $10,000 programming challenge is still available).
Fun and interesting for humans.


Has anyone else given it a go?
