Welcome to CodeCup!
We offer you a challenging programming contest. Anybody can participate; there are no age restrictions or other special requirements. The CodeCup never charges entry fees.
In 2015 the game for the contest is 6561. We have placed a description of the rules online. You can always watch a sample game being played.
After you login in to the CodeCup system you can submit your program. You can find the submission section under "My submissions". Your submission will be tested automatically against our sample players to ensure that it follows the rules. After passing this check your program is ready to compete! Note that your program must be capable of playing both as black and white.
We will hold test competitions every three weeks starting at the end of September. In these competitions you will see how your program performs against other players. You can follow the complete games and use this information to improve your strategy.
The official 6561 competition has been played on January 16th 2016.You can go directly to the final ranking of the programs.
