Welcome to the game of Konane!

Konane, or Hawaiian Checkers, is a simple strategy game similar in many ways to checkers. The AI behind the game above is a simple minimax agent using a custom board evaluation function.


The leftmost menu sets the depth of the AI's minimax search, the right most menu sets the color of the AI's opponent, and the center menu sets the number of players. In two player mode, two humans play. In one player mode, the custom AI's opponent is a human of the color specified. In zero player mode, the custom AI's opponent is an AI (of the color specified) that uses a simple move maximizing cost function. (To make the game more even, the move maximizer reaches two levels below the specified search depth of the custom AI. Note that because the move maximizing reaches 2 deep, it becomes very slow around depth 4 or 5.)
