    Real-World, Custom AI Solutions

    I think there are 2 different scenarios for custom AI. One in which the devs just goes, "well we know how to program, so we can AI". Another in which, "we have studied the different AI's approaches and none fits as they are on the project, let us design something more fitting, usually combining some and adding new stuff" I think if they are just coding AI because they know how to code is not the right way to do it. I think first the team needs to have a knowledge of other techniques like FSM that you mentioned and see how those approaches would result in the game. I can't imagine too much an AI that simply has almost nothing from the techniques already existing. I mentioned in a thread here for example, I am working on a card game AI, its the third card game I project the AI for. I made a Decision Tree based on partial results of Minimax (no full data since your cards are unknown), weighting and using that data decide the best plays. Looking from outside it seems a custom AI, but it truly is combining multiple techniques and a little touch of my own :D. Anyway, I think you have probably more experience than me with that, but just putting my thoughts and experience on the subject. I worked some with AI in quality and in games, but some years less experience than you though.

    Writing a 6 by 6 grid version of tic tac toe AI

    Maybe I am slightly late, but if you do read this, I recommend taking a look at the minimax algorithm. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minimax Minimax is basically this, you make a decision tree that counts the number of turns and possible plays, he evaluates the best play to win on turn 1(his turn), then the best play to not lose on turn 2 (it would be your turn), and then after those decisions the best play to win t3 and so on. Minimax leads to the almost perfect A.I in board games if you make the tree until the last level, in your case turn 36, it traces every single possible movement. Being realistic for a good A.I, you probably can make him track just 3-4 levels of decisions, you can also randomize from the top 3 decisions and so on to make it more natural. I have used for card games, tracking 2-3 turns only and it really works wonders in being competitive enough and not un-human.
