Bluffing computer? Computer strategies to the Perudo game

Open access


In this paper we present the elaborated computer strategies which we developed to a less-known dice game, Perudo. Moreover, the related analysis is presented, with the results of our machine players against human players. The main contribution of our paper is a strategy which involves bluffing. An important goal of this work is the remembrance to John v. Neumann; with our means we pay a tribute to the activity of the ”founding father”; on the occasion of his 110th birthday.
