Discover Segfaults on other Planets!

We at Missouri S&T ACM SIG-Game are excited to announce our newest game: Mars! Mars will be the twelfth MegaMinerAI hosted by ACM SIG-Game.

What’s MegaMinerAI?

MegaMinerAI is an artificial intelligence (AI) programming competition held in Rolla, Missouri on the campus of Missouri S&T. Competitors are given 24 hours to learn the new game, develop a strategy, and implement their AI. At the end of 24 hours, an automated tournament is run, and prizes are awarded to the top three student teams. Non-student teams are welcome to participate as well, but will be ineligible to win prizes.


Registration is $24 per team. This semester, teams will receive a $4 discount for each of their team members that is also a paid member of Missouri S&T’s ACM student chapter. Interested in joining Missouri S&T ACM? Check out their website!
