Ultra chess engine contest
I posted a contest on another forum a little bit ago, to award 25 dollars to the first person to create a chess engine for the new game ultra chess. Ultra chess was created by me and a few chess buddies. It has 14X14 squares (196), and 3 new peices. It is really neat, and challenging, with alot more variations and combinations of moves than normal chess. I am updating the contest to 50 dollars for the person that creates the first ultra chess engine. The engine must search 2 depth - 4 depth. The engine must be graphical in some way, it can be text for all I care, with the pieces being represented with letters, BB would be black bishop for instance. This isnt really about making money, but for the challange of it. However I decided to add a little incentive. If you would like the game information, even if you dont want to make an engine, or if you do, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and i will send you the game info. It is REALLY easy to understand, not complicated at all. I am in the process of making an engine myself, however I lack the chess programming theory to do it. I am learning though. BTW, this is WAY better than Omega chess, which is 10X10 and includes 2 new pieces.
