Excel mini game, AI ver1

AI engine in action for my excel mini game. Will need to define more strategy. 

My plan is to use VBA but after experimenting with excel formula, was able to compute moves and position by aggregating my data using the position of each piece.

Decided to start a side project as refresher for Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI).

They always say that if you want to learn something, building a game is the best way to go. Below is a video demo of the mini game that I created using excel. 

-It’s based on the game called Salpakan(game of the generals).It is basically a cross between chess and battleship.

-the rules is fully incorporated. 

-AI is in place, you can see how P1 piece move from cell to cell.

-Still a crappy AI, need to revise the algorithm. Currently, I’m just ranking the piece based on the position in the board and incorporate randomness on the direction of the movement. 

-will try to improve the AI by building a move datasets then evaluate the move instead of the position of the piece.

-player Vs player is something that I will look into as well. 

-since this is a side project, will post some more update once I make more progress
