We --- Kenny Young, Kelly Li, Broderick, Phil, Ryan, Jakub (and previously Aja, David, Jack, Mike, Morgan, Nathan Po, Maryia, Martha, Leah, Yngvi, Geoff Ryan, and Robert Budac) --- build Hex players and solvers. Previous projects include Wolve, Mongoose and Queenbee. Wolve 2006, written by Broderick, Phil, Mike, Morgan, Geoff, and Yngvi with assistance from Ryan and Martin Müller, is a revised version of Mongoose. In the UCT search tree it prunes moves via virtual connection and inferior cell information similar to that used by Wolve; it also handles solved states.
