Brilliant Game Frame 1.0 - Dots and Boxes

Hello everyone;

For those of you bored with ordinary programming problems, Arulx, Pranjal and I have designed the Brilliant Game Frame.

In the first issue of the Brilliant Game Frame, you'll develop a bot that plays Dots and Boxes, a strategy game of all time.

For more information, read on..

In the mean time, if you have some strategies to share, use this wiki. We might be contributing to this wiki too.

Suggestions, Requests, Bug Reports and Comments are welcome.

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

  • Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
  • Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
  • Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

We're playing the game on a grid of 9 by 9 dots. In other words, there will be exactly 81 boxes at the end of the game.

There are only 64 boxes at the end of the game. You even included a picture; you could have counted it yourself.

You're correct. I am sorry for the typo, that's extremely silly of me.

I updated the README
