Coding Sheep Intelligence

Foxes vs Sheep

For the last couple of days I’ve been working with javascript to develop sheep intelligence in the classic and ancient Scandinavian board game ”rävspelet” (sometimes identified with the old norse ”halatafl” and closely related to the English board game ”Fox and Geese”)

I’m very pleased with the result because I think they play really well. You play the foxes and you can chose to face sheep of four levels of difficulty. It’s not that hard to beat them at the two easier ”lamb-levels” but try to beat them on any of the two more advanced levels. Can you do that? Click on [this link] or on the picture above to play!
