Computer Games II is the second volume in a two-part compendium of papers covering the most important material available on the development of computer strategy games. These selections range from discussions of mathematical analysis of games, to more qualitative concerns of whether a computer game should follow human thought processes rather than a brute force approach, to papers which will benefit readers trying to program their own games.
Next to chess, more has been written about computer Go than any other strategy game. Selections by Bruce Wilcox, a major contributor to the development of computer Go, are included here. This volume also contains papers on Othello, a game of pure skill which has been programmed successfully enough to win against a human World Champion, and Poker, which adds the dimensions of bluff and uncertainty to the challenge of computer game programming.
Games in this volume include: Othello Go Go-Moku Bridge Dominoes Dama Poker Hearts Halma Qubic Push-Over Chemin-De-Fer
Computer Games I, the companion volume, covers the following games: Backgammon Chess Checkers Scrabble
