Nebiyu,
a general game playing engine by Daniel Shawul based on Scorpio chess. Nebiyu supports two- and multi-player chess variants, the games of Checkers, Reversi, Go, Amazons, and Hex. Besides the chess engine development, the project also involved modification of the WinBoard protocol to support these variants and games [1] [2]. Nebiyu incorporates several search algorithms, such as alpha-beta for games and chess variants with simple evaluation based on material and piece-square tables, and Monte-Carlo tree search and UCT (Upper Confidence bounds applied to Trees) [3] for games difficult to evaluate statically, while Daniel also reported some UCT surprises for Checkers [4]. So far, NebiyuChess played the WCRCC 2012.
