I hadn't heard about it either before last week. I was looking for a game that was longer and a little bit more interesting than tic-tac-toe, but still fairly short and simple.
I'd like to write an article, possibly a series of articles, on algorithms for board game AI, and I was looking for an interesting game to implement where minimax, without having to cut it off at a certain depth. The games with the simplest rules are often abstract games, so I googled abstract games, and this was one of the first ones that came up.
That's super fascinating! I'm looking forward to your next articles :)
