Trained Minesweeper Agents

A version of minesweeper that lets you train agents with rules, and they get to play

Figure out an interface for training agents to play the game Minesweeper. You reward them for behavior that will tend to find mines without blowing them up. Some versions may offer optional agent-communication. Like so many lemmings, they appear on the field and start executing the plan. You score based on how efficient they are and how many are left after the bombs have all been identified.

       I've never understood why mines get so dusty in the first place.

       The miners never remember to wipe their feet.

       That pun was the pits, [Ian]. Down here at the coalface of this goldmine of wit, we expect more gems.
