Battlesnake Training Program

Make and train your first Battlesnake!

  • Register a default Starter Battlesnake

    Follow the instructions in the Quick Start Coding Guide and then Register your Battlesnake to your account.
  • Run a Test Game

    Go to the Play Game page and create a game with just your Battlesnake. This is a quick test, so don't worry if it runs into a wall or itself! Make sure a game loads successfully, and change the colour of your Battlesnake to confirm you can make modifications.
  • Complete the first Solo Challenge: Avoid Walls

    First step - program your Battlesnake to just avoid walls, then go to Challenges and complete 'Avoid Walls'.
  • Complete the second Solo Challenge: Avoid Yourself

    Next, improve your Battlesnake code to avoid its own body, then go to Challenges and complete 'Avoid Yourself'.
  • Complete the third Solo Challenge: Avoid Other Snakes

    The third challenge puts two copies of your own Battlesnake on the same board. Update your code so that your Battlesnake will not run into an opponent, then go to Challenges and complete 'Avoid Other Snakes'.
  • Complete the fourth Solo Challenge: Find Food

    Update your Battlesnake so it will find and eat food. Go to Challenges and complete 'Find Food'.
  • Enter an Arena

    Time to join an Arena! Arenas run automatic games against other Battlesnakes with a ranked leaderboard. You can watch games and make code tweaks. Choose an arena from the drop-down menu 'Arena', and then click the button 'Manage Battlesnakes' to add your Battlesnake to the Arena!
  • Enter a League
