Evolving Players for an Ancient Game: Hnefatafl
2007 IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence and Games
AbstractiHnefatafl is an ancient Norse gamean ancestor of chess. In this paper, we report on the development of computer players for this game. In the spirit of Blondie24, we evolve neural networks as board evaluation functions for different versions of the game.
