Ai Ai Download Page
AiAi is a Java-based general game playing engine based on Mogal (a GGP designed and developed by Stephen Tavener and Cameron Browne). Games can be hand-coded in Java (for efficiency), or assembled from blocks using a scripting language based on JSON.
Note: as of 4th April 2020, you’ll need Java 11 to run Ai Ai. If you want an older version that runs in Java 8, follow this link: Last Java 8 release of Ai Ai
The current list of games in Ai Ai, ordered by BGG rating, is here: Ranked Games in Ai Ai.
Ai Ai Reports
Ai Ai has quite a lot of analysis functions. If you’re very, very patient (overnight is best) you can produce a detailed game report. Here are some examples: Ai Ai reports

As of 24th January 2019, Ai Ai also supports turn-based online play. Quick summary:
- Run online.jar
- Click the button on the left to create an account
- Check your email (including spam folder) for a confirmation link
- Log in, and start playing. If you want someone to challenge, I’m mrraow
You’ll find a little more on Ai Ai here:
AiAi allows you to play games against a variety of AIs, mostly variations of MCTS (Monte Carlo tree search). It also contains analysis tools for game authoring; though these are more for my benefit than anyone else’s at present.
AiAi is still very much in a state of flux, and rather lacking in documentation at present but I will link documentation here as I write it. Questions and comments welcome, and may well encourage me to write more!
I have added some threads to BGG for announcements, suggestions, and bug reports:
Announcements – subscribe to this thread to be notified when I update Ai Ai
Suggestions – any suggestions for improvements/new features should go here
Bug Reports – find a bug? Report it here. I will probably ask you for a save game file if it is a problem with a specific game.
FAQ – living FAQ; I will update the top post with questions and answers.
The latest version of AiAi will always be available here:
