Hidden Information Games Competition (HIGC) tests AI bots on large two-player zero-sum games with imperfect information, such as Poker or DarkChess. The players do not have perfect knowledge about everything that goes on in the game: they receive only partial observations about the world's real state. The goal of the AI is to play the games as well as possible against any opponent.
Both public games are implemented in OpenSpiel and you can run them with just calling
load_game("rbc"). We made an example implementation of the random bots in Python and C++, and provide an implementation of the referee for the tournament. See the competition repository for more details.
The committee agreed upon the rules used in the competition. We’d like to thank to RCI for helping with the computational resources needed to run the competition. Within a few weeks the implementation of the public games will be merged to OpenSpiel master.
The committee selected the games used in the competition. Thank you for your feedback! The games will be now implemented to provide full support in OpenSpiel in the coming month.
