I am going to have Introduction to Artificial Intelligence in this semester & I know that our main resource would be "Artificial Intelligence A Modern Approach", since I want to learn deeply and Implement all the algorithms we are going to learn, I want to implement a simple intelligent mini-game for each material in the course.
so my question is that what games would be best for each topic? the only ones I could come up with were a Sudoku Solver and a simple player vs. computer Tic-Tac-Toe.

    $\begingroup$ "Best" in what sense? This seems too subjective to me; what you have seems OK. $\endgroup$ – Juho Sep 11 '14 at 14:49
  • $\begingroup$ think of a game which has an agent that uses something like local search or genetic algorithm, that would be the best choice for that topic. I just want a mean to implement these algorithms. $\endgroup$ – Amen Sep 11 '14 at 15:14
  • $\begingroup$ "Hare and Hounds" comes to mind. Search "Hare games" in Wikipedia. $\endgroup$ – Florian F Sep 11 '14 at 23:58

  • $\begingroup$ like general question but unf agreed it is too broad for se. however two games come to mind that have a long classic history in AI: chess & go. modern algorithms are not simple but one could come up with simple algorithms. also, dynamic algorithms that play video games like pacman are very cool/ advanced, this can be done with genetic algorithms & is subj to serious scientific research. again, simple algorithms may suffice. $\endgroup$ – vzn Sep 13 '14 at 18:56
