AI for Solo War games
I have often espoused the opinion to much scoffing, that all table top war-games be they with figures or board war games, should include a solitaire system with good AI. Most in the industry or simply people like me who love to play games usually disagreed.
Thankfully, these days, there are game designers, who share my feeling – Dan Versen and others feel the same way and back that up by including solo rules and challenging solo opponents.
I have often thought: Would it be possible to make a solo AI for board war gamers, that was not only generic enough that it could be used with most games, but would be challenging too.
Do any of you know of such a system?
I would love to hear from you in the comments section below. Is there some kind of computer software that we could use?
Years and years ago, I used to convert many of my board war games to the computer using the scenario editor of various computer war games I had. Tanks was one of them,and Empire Deluxe was another. The AI of the latter was not very good, so unless you played the vastly weaker side, it made for a boring game.
