Outcome Uncertainty And Interestedness In Game-Playing: A Case Study Using Synchronized Hex
AbstractOutcome uncertainty is a key-factor to measure the interestedness of a game because people are not attracted by the game where the outcome is easily predictable. To create new variants of classical games is quite easy but to refine solved games, in order to make them much more fascinating, is challenging. We introduce two simple techniques (synchronism and stochastic elements) to refine the game of Hex. Experimental results show an increment of the outcome uncertainty defined as entropic function.
