Board Game Computer Opponent Help/Suggestions Please

We've just been asked to develop a board game & we're looking for someone who has experience of and enthusiasm for programming computer opponents. Can't give away much at the moment - it's a version of a successful board game from the past but, as far as we know, no-one has written a computer opponent for it. Glenn has ideas for algorithms (based on playing the game) but hasn't taken it any further at this point due to other commitments. We'd welcome any ideas and if you're interested in actually joining the team, please PM me or Glennx.

Thanks

If this is a paid gig, the best guy around for this type of stuff is Andrew Stuart at Scanraid. He programmed Caveman Test for me in a few days. His e mail is andrew @scanraid.com
He is sometimes from the UK (when not on the beach in Mexico) so that should make it easy for you to work with him.

Thanks for the tip! Looking at his web page it certainly looks as though he may have the kind of skills we're after.

If you need *serious and very good* code, feel free to contact me.
I am working on some advanced artificial intelligence code for one of our upcoming PC game.

Thanks Exosyphen! We're still discussing legalities but will certainly be speaking to you once that's all sorted.
