The Game of Synchronized Quadromineering
Authors: Alessandro Cincotti
Abstract:In synchronized games players make their moves simultaneously rather than alternately. Synchronized Quadromineering is the synchronized version of Quadromineering, a variants of a classical two-player combinatorial game called Domineering. Experimental results for small m × n boards (with m + n < 15) and some theoretical results for general k × n boards (with k = 4, 5, 6) are presented. Moreover, some Synchronized Quadromineering variants are also investigated.
Keywords: Combinatorial games, Synchronized games, Quadromineering.
