The applet supports one player and two player mode, and also no players, that is, computer vs. computer, which is not only crazy to watch, but a fun thing to gamble on, if you enjoy such things. A six-move search depth Computer Vs Computer game can get quite intense! On a modern computer, a two-move search depth game will be instantaneous.


Move a piece by clicking on it. It will be backlit in orange, and then click on the target square. If there is a forced capture elsewhere, the piece will be backlit in blue. Watch out! It plays a mean game!

I found this nosing about amongst the code at the old MIT ai (artificial intelligence) FTP server, many years ago. Still works great! Enjoy!

You need Java to see this applet in action!
