Computer Olympiad

The Computer Olympiads are a multi-games event taking place every year in which computer programs compete against each other. The majority of the games are board games but other games such as Bridge take place as well. The Olympiad is normally held in either Maastricht or London.

For many board games the Computer Olympiads are an opportunity to take the "worlds best computer player" title.
