Robot Tournament

Robot Tournament is easist to install and run with Ruby Version Manager (RVM).. Please Install RVM if you don't already have it. See http://beginrescueend.com/rvm/install/

Create and use the 'robot_tournament' gemset rvm --create gemset use robot_tournament

Install Bundler gem install bundler

Install the bundle bundle install

Start the server like this:

./bin/server

That starts the tournament engine, where you can host battles between rival teams' robots. Robots are built by programmers and have to conform to a simple protocol:

  • uploaded as zip file
  • zip file contains a single folder in the root from which the robot will take it's name
  • the folder contains an executable file, 'move' which will be called by the tournament engine when the robot needs to make a move

See the features for examples, or the folder 'examples'

Use the following command to create and start a tournament:

./bin/create_tournament --name "battle royale" --rounds 5 --duration 10 --game rock_paper_scissors

The idea is to practice and encourage the XP principle of 'release early, release often' by rewarding early competitors with points.
