Backstory

Hi! I'm Scott, I'm from Victoria BC Canada, currently working for Semaphore Solutions but previously worked for Flytographer and Redbrick. Here's a few Battlesnake related things I made that you may have heard of: - The Redbrick Robosnake, which went 42-3 as a bounty snake in 2017: https://rdbrck.com/news/building-bounty-snake-post-mortem/ - Son of Robosnake, which went a whopping 71-3 as a bounty snake in 2018: https://rdbrck.com/news/son-robosnake-aggressive-bounty-snake/ - Mojave, the prettiest Battlesnake arena that also lets you play snakes from different years against each other: https://github.com/smallsco/mojave/ I was a volunteer at the 2019 event and hopefully will be again at the next Victoria Live!

  • mabel

    Mabel is named after a mouse that lives at Market Square. The way she bravely scurries across the office floor, seeking out food, but shying away from people, was my inspiration for the design of this Battlesnake. Mabel is written in Lua and runs on the OpenResty server, deployed to Heroku using a Docker container.

  • Robosnake Mk. III

    Originally created as Redbrick's Bounty Snake in 2017, Robo picks the snake closest to it and predicts that snake's moves roughly 6 turns ahead. It pretty much ignores all other snakes in play. Written in Lua! More info here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vlEgqnxEWdc
