# Hunger Games Aftermath discussions

For all of our Brilliant people - there are now two discussions over in competitions about Hunger Games. One is about what happens next and one is all about strategy.

Oh I got the pun, whether intentional or not. Aftermath. After. Math.

My code contains a link to my website: www.kelvinsantos.com There is a good explanation of what my algorithm does there.

Will it be considered?

as I recall from your code, there was a good explanation in code as well.

Sure, just want to make sure extra info is available if needed - especially if my code stand out

Now that submissions are closed is it possible to reveal the game ending rules? What is "small probability after a large number of rounds"?

My team submitted our beta algo by mistake. May we resubmit w/ our completed work? Beta has data management probs so its just broken.

I too would like to be able to change my code after a large part of the community has posted their strategies

This will not be allowed. Part of the game was deciding to either a) anticipate the strategies of the population and adjust b) design a learning algorithm that just tries different strategies and see how it does.

Knowing other players strategies (if they post them in the discussion) would be in essence a separate game.

Don't feel like you guys can't do a sequel some time that is that separate game, though! Wink wink nudge nudge.

Yes, something like this might very well rear its head in the future.
