While surfing Wikipedia yesterday, I stumbled upon an interesting board game called Arimaa. It is similar to chess, based off of the rules of chess, but has a completely different attempt. It is a game meant to be easy for humans to learn and play, but extremely difficult for computers to learn. Once upon a time, someone created a program that he thought would be better than humans at Arimaa. You can download it here. Omar, the creator of Arimaa, played it, and crushed it. Humans = teh awesome! I'd be very willing to try this out with one of all y'all at some point via email.
