CalWeek 2020

Welcome to GamesCrafters!

The UC Berkeley GamesCrafters research and development group was formed by Dr. Dan Garcia in 2001 to explore the fertile area of combinatorial and computational game theory. At the core of the project is GAMESMAN, a system developed for solving, playing and analyzing two-person, abstract strategy games (e.g., Tic-Tac-Toe, or Chess).
