We had 440 individual and team submissions to hunger games, many of them exceptional examples of game theory analysis and machine learning. Way to go all you Brilliant folks!
Over the next two weeks we will be examining each submission and actually running the game, letting all your algorithms duke it out. After the game is run (or during, if it takes a very long time - there are some complex algorithms!), we will post the current standings. The final results will be posted before September 1st, and most likely well before. We will then be in contact with the finalists for their short interviews, after which we will award the prizes and t-shirts.
In the meantime - in the Brilliant discussion forum there is now a Hunger Games strategy week discussion, where all of you can discuss what you did and why if you so desire. While this is a little like shopping after you bought something, it can still be a lot of fun to toss around your ideas. Please upvote those posts that give strategies you like, and we'll see in the end how those strategies actually did!
