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? Kelvin Azevedo Santos · 3 years, 11 months ago

@Kelvin Azevedo Santos as I recall from your code, there was a good explanation in code as well. David Mattingly Staff · 3 years, 11 months ago

@David Mattingly Sure, just want to make sure extra info is available if needed - especially if my code stand out Kelvin Azevedo Santos · 3 years, 11 months ago

Now that submissions are closed is it possible to reveal the game ending rules? What is "small probability after a large number of rounds"? Kelvin Azevedo Santos · 3 years, 11 months ago

My team submitted our beta algo by mistake. May we resubmit w/ our completed work? Beta has data management probs so its just broken. Chris White · 3 years, 11 months ago

@Chris White I too would like to be able to change my code after a large part of the community has posted their strategies Xavier Torgerson · 3 years, 11 months ago

@Xavier Torgerson 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. David Mattingly Staff · 3 years, 11 months ago

@David Mattingly Don't feel like you guys can't do a sequel some time that is that separate game, though! Wink wink nudge nudge. Christopher Johnson · 3 years, 11 months ago

@Christopher Johnson Yes, something like this might very well rear its head in the future. David Mattingly Staff · 3 years, 11 months ago
