Some tools to have fun with scrabble games. Classical scrabble (french, english). Some variations (currently only kelimelik).

Public domain stuff.

You need a dictionary too. (For french, use ODS6.txt.)

Here is a collection, collected from here and there.

Kelimelik hacks

I was bored to have to play with the android device. So I automated things.

kelimelik-0.1.tar.gz has a command line client for the kelimelik game and a bot that plays on its own. As of 2013-11-22 it played 220 games and won 204 (lost 16) (my nickname in the game is sedsedsed). Reasonably good.

There are bugs. The bot never swaps, only skips if it can't play. I lost a game once because of that.

kelimelik-0.2.tar.gz (2013-12-05) is much better! To compile it, you need cairo, X11, and libsndfile. It needs scrabble 0.3 so to play as far as possible from the star, as some kind of mini-strategy. And there is a logging mechanism so that you can replay games. And you can create PDF files of those replays! And there is an interactive GUI that looks like the following image.

As of 2013-12-05 my bot played 673 games and won 628.

All this may fail to work. I had to reverse-engine the protocol. Things may change with time.

kelimelik-analysis.tar.gz has some technical informations on the game (read also the sources of the command line client).

That was fun to analyze and understand.

AZSPCS contest

azspcs.tar.xz: raw dump of my working directories.

The README:

a raw dump of my work on the contest:
http://www.azspcs.net/Contest/AlphabetCity

I finished 16 (C├ędric Roux). Lame. I spent too much time on that
thing for such a bad result.

no doc, no nothing, good luck.

run stuff in contest/05.2.forced.cut.J
that's the thing I'm the most proud of

there is also a GUI stuff in contest/manual, funny
(full of bugs)
