The Game of Synchronized Triomineering and Synchronized Tridomineering

Authors: Alessandro Cincotti, Shigetaka Komori, Hiroyuki Iida

Abstract:

In synchronized games players make their moves simultaneously rather than alternately. Synchronized Triomineering and Synchronized Tridomineering are respectively the synchronized versions of Triomineering and Tridomineering, two variants of a classic two-player combinatorial game called Domineering. Experimental results for small m × n boards (with m + n ≤ 12 for Synchronized Triomineering and m + n ≤ 10 for Synchronized Tridomineering) and some theoretical results for general k×n boards (with k = 3, 4, 5 for Synchronized Triomineering and k = 3 for Synchronized Tridomineering) are presented. Future research is indicated.

Keywords: Combinatorial games, Synchronized games, Triomineering, Tridomineering.
