Group Description

Sure, you may be a winner, but do you have what it takes to make a winner? Since Silas Warner's mainframe RobotWar in the '70s, numerous developers have tinkered with the idea of challenging the player to come up with their own AI, often in a proprietary programming language (sometimes via a slick graphical interface, othertimes through raw code), and then sit back and observe the results when the player's best strategies meet the best of the developers or other players.
