Check out the new Flash Metasquares client put together by Henry Hauser. It supports online play as well as an AI opponent.

MetaTools has made available an official client for the iPhone. It doesn't support online play yet.

In honor of what is roughly the 10th anniversary of Metasquarer, I would like to hold a tournament, with prizes to be determined but probably including involvement in future development of Metasquares and a t-shirt or something. Please see the forums for details.

Build 73 is out! This build features new plugins that allow you to play on a board with random spaces made unavailable, adding variety to the game and foiling the opening books of some bots. The next release is going to be numbered 8.0 and will feature a much stronger AI and the ability to play games with greater than 2 players.

Look for some vast improvements to the AI in the coming weeks. I'm working on an AI using the MTD(f) algorithm that should be capable of beating even the most skilled players. I'm also readying a paper on this approach for publication. I need some volunteers to play against the new AI on different depths. The data gathered from those games will be used to tune the AI and will likely appear, stripped of identifiable information, in the publication. Contact me if interested.

July 24, 2006

Build 72 has been released. This is primarily a bugfix release, though there are a few aesthetic and functional changes. It is strongly recommended that you download this build, as earlier builds will no longer function using the default settings due to DNS changes.
