I'm happy to report that Aaron Siegel at Berkeley has written a new
Combinatorial Game Suite which is a dramatic improvement over my
toolkit. In particular,
If you are still interested in doing investigations in combinatorial
games, I highly recommend using his software. It's available at
- The Suite is designed to be more flexible and extensible. For
instance, you can implement the rules to a new game by writing a
plug-in without making any changes to source code.
- The Suite is written in Java making it portable. (It's been tested
on Windows 2000/XP, Linux and Solaris.)
- Aaron has provided additional functionality that were not part of
my toolkit distribution, such as support for loopy games and
- The Suite's has an easy to use graphical user interface.
