ColorShapeLinks is an AI competition for the deceptively simple Simplexity board game with arbitrary dimensions. Creating a competent AI is simple, requiring only one class with one method, making ColorShapeLinks a very accessible competition for student teams, as shown in the following video tutorial:


However, Simplexity's motto for human players, "simple to learn, complex to master", could also be applied to AI implementations. The added complexity over Connect-4 means that, in Simplexity, a less observant player can lose in its turn. Together with arbitrary game dimensions and a short playing time, the challenges for the AI are multifold. The competition will run on two distinct tracks, each offering a prize money of $500 (USD) to the winner  — sponsored by the IEEE CIS Competition Subcommittee. The competition is ongoing, and standings for the base track and two test tracks are updated daily Have a go!
