Faster Than Light (Steam version). An free expansion was released a few days ago.

Also trying to build a bot for General game playing. I learned how to work around the Multi-armed bandit problem we stumbled in the rumble a long time ago. Someone suggested priority battles should be based on sampled variance to minimize error in scores. But sampled variance also has an error and variance. You need variance to choose where to sample, but need samples to calculate variance.

Nope. Follow the link for a description.

GGP bots are designed to be able to play different games, all with the same engine (same source code). It can play tic-tac-toe, checkers, chess...

The server gives the rules of the game at runtime, the bot processes the rules and figures out how to play it at runtime. And then it plays it against other GGP bots.
