It seems to work! It didn't loop! Is there a way to represent the matchboxes (the game positions) in memory so that the 90 and 180 rotations of a same position would automatically be the same matchbox object ?

I played ~40 games and then it got stuck in a loop of "MENACE resigns" on an empty board. I didn't touch the settings. Cool project :-)

I think I've fixed that. Let me know if you still have the same problem after refreshing the page.

The online version of MENACE is really glitchy. Whenever you change the settings, it just keeps going in the corner. For instance, I changed it to get 1 bead per victory, and it just kept going in the corner every time. It made its second move, and then it just stopped playing after that. I put x's all over the board until I won. This happens with a lot of the custom settings.

Cool, thanks! Also thanks for translating the site to German, really useful.

I would like to build my own menace. Would you happen to still have a document template with the possible game states in matchbox size? This could save me some work ;)

If you take one bead out on a loss and put three in on a win, then a careful human player (by judicious choice of moves) can win almost three times as much as losing, without letting the machine "catch on"

I've also made a physical MENACE since writing this. I plan to make a video at some point: I'll let you know when I do...

Oh, I just read further and saw that Oliver made the physical MENACE. I shall menace him instead!

I would love to see a game being played with this machine. Could you make a Youtube video of a game in progress, so we can see it in action? How long does a typical game last with a trained engine?

There may be a mistake in the source code somewhere. I will look into it.

Whenever the board turns into two opposite corners, and I have played in bottom middle and center, Menace stops playing for some reason (aka I get a free move).
