TripleA New World Order 1939 AI vs AI

This post is about the game TripleA, which is an online, local network, or single player war game like the tabletop box game Axis and Allies. The first video below is a 1-hour AI vs AI screen capture of the New World Order Lebowski Edition 1939 European theater scenario. There are many other TripleA game scenarios here.

About the game scenario:

New World Order Lebowski Edition 1939: The idea is to create a map focusing on balance and gameplay; this version adds 3 new powers to spice up diversity playing, thinned out the old units structure a bit to simplify things and better represent national advantage. Turn orders: Germany, Poland, Finland, Russia, Romania, France, Italy, U.K., Spain, Greece, Turkey, and U.S. Source: Axis & Allies Wikia.

About the AI:

The AI plays an odd strategy game, particularly against another AI. But this video will give you a very good insight into how the game is played. The music and sound affects are turned off around the 7 minute mark, and the Show AI Battles is turned off after the second complete round so that you can see non-combat movements more easily.

Redux: An Update to “The Bet,” by Anton Chekhov

Most of this post is a repost from 2013. I have settled on doing this with Scions, and now only needed to decide who to use. I am thinking Hat and Basile Berry. Cheers, jhpiii

An Update to “The Bet,” by Anton Chekhov:

"Anton Chekhov's Short Stories, Norton Critical Editions" by Anton Chekhov, and Editor Ralph E. Matlaw

“Anton Chekhov’s Short Stories, Norton Critical Editions” by Anton Chekhov, and Editor Ralph E. Matlaw

I have settled on doing a rewrite of “The Bet,” by Anton Chekhov. And as such, I have sought out readings of the story, as I have always found good audio readings of short stories, and novels for that matter, to be much more enjoying and informative than simply sight-reading. The main update to this original post is this LibriVox recording of “The Bet, by “The Bet,” by Anton Chekhov, read by: William Coon. You can find the “Anton Chekhov’s Short Stories, Norton Critical Editions” by Anton Chekhov, and Editor Ralph E. Matlaw here.

If you like audiobooks, you should get to know LibriVox. Their recording library has gotten large enough now that one could most likely spend the rest of one’s free time listening through all the recordings. My favourite LibriVox recording is the novel “Bridge of Birds,” by Barry Hughart, and read Julie Davis of Forgotten Classics. I’m not keen on podcasts, but Ms. Davis has made an absolutely fantastic recording of one of my most favourite novels. Also, as far as I know, Ms. Davis’ recording of “Bridge of Birds,” by Barry Hughart is the only audio recording of the novel available to the public. Come to that, I think I’ll do a “No Plot Spoiler Book Review” of “Bridge of Birds.” It’s been a bit too long since I posted one of those.
