in reply to games played with Perl

A prisoners dilema-type game would be a rather straightforward game to code, where perhaps you would build the main game, and define an API that the other programmers would need to write players for.

I very much like your concept, it should be interesting. I just recently heard of RoboCode which sounds very interesting, but alas, i have never coded java.

    You've got the right idea, but what is "Prisoner's Dilema?" I'm not familiar with that one.

    I've tossed around the idea of doing RoShamBo (rock-scissors-paper) or TicTacToe, but those have been my best ideas so far.
      Prisoners dilema is a game theorey game where basically 2 players choose either to cooperate or fend for themselves. This could be expanded to rounds of play. The game itself would be as simple as rock paper scissors (which is a good idea!)

      Heres a link to an more detailed explanation: Prisoners dilema
