(The Reverse Experience - play Reversi and Othello, select strategy scenarios
The Reverse Experience is a very special Reversi / Othello player.
It includes a powerful game-search engine allowing for customization of the game's various play strategies. The computer will select from different strategy scenarios that it will play against you, depending on the level you choose. So game play will be different with each level. Everything is fully documented.
Which should make it a little more interesting, we thought, and could also serve as a nice example of board game evaluation theory. This will also introduce you into the field of strategy scenario variation - learn how to choose from a variety of strategic options.
An evaluation window will show you precisely how each move was calculated internally, explain briefly the strategy you're exploring, and you can compare the impact of the different board evaluation strategies on the total move score.
The game's evaluation strategies are based on IAGO, the first computer software beating an official human world champion in a board game. The game contains a link to an article by Paul S. Rosenbloom where he explains how he set up IAGO with different strategies, their background theory, and how they offer advantages against human systems thinking.
The game and its download are free for personal use under the terms of the dna license included with the program's installer.
