Alternatively, node initialization (sometimes referred to as priors [3]) initializes the win and visit counts of nodes at the time of their creation with win values that reflect the strength of the node, again determined by the evaluation function. In all three of our programs we have seen that it is necessary to use one of these techniques. In the case of Amabot, progressive widening is used. In fact, since Amabot possesses such a mature and accurate evaluation function and since Amazons allows so many legal moves, especially in the early parts of the game, we push progressive widening a bit further and do some forward pruning.

To overcome these difficulties PPA does not memorize a best playout and does not use nested levels of search. Instead of learning the best playout it learns the moves of every playout but only for the winner of the playout. NMCS has been previously successfully adapted to two-player games in a recent work [5]. PPA is a follow-up to this paper since it is the adaptation of NRPA to two-player games. In the context of GGP we look for general enhancements of UCT that work for many games without game-specific tweakings.

Playout. Following a playout policy, the game is played from the selected leaf to some terminal state. -H. Hsueh et al. 4. Backpropagation. The result of the playout, also called reward, is updated from terminal state back to all its ancestors in the selected path during selection. Recently, several researchers applied MCTS to CDC. This paper briefly reviews the work in [33, 34]. In [33], their program DIABLO used non-deterministic nodes, so-called in their article, to contain all inner nodes for all the possible outcomes of the flipping actions.
