To indicate the level of laziness here, the alt surrendered and is replaced by AI, and since TBest is a member he has autopilot. So TWorst can just spam the Run+Commit shortcut to make a turn pass.

Still a lot of times to hit the shortcut tho.....

And if that's possible, it makes me wonder how long a man could stay on a raft with a chicken.

Senet is most likely the oldest known board game in the world. It was played in Ancient Egypt and game boards have been found in Predynastic and First Dynasty burials dating as far back as 3500 BCE.

You're welcomed! Glad I could help.

In senet older than go? I think the origins of go have been fabled to be anywhere up to 6000 BCE ... but no one can tell for sure.

If surrender when only 1 AI is left is set to No, and AI takes over when surrender is enabled is set, both players have 0 units and 0 income ... is that an infinite loop game? There's probably a routine to detect and stop that, else it could potentially just suck up all the CPU cycles.

I submit that Hide and Seek is unquestionably the oldest game in the world

AI's will VTE. In a tournament there is a random winner.

https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=22554222 when both become AI, the game is VTE

EDIT: MP doesn't work, but SP might???

EDIT: SP AI vs AI advances about 1 turn per second.

TBest's game ... "Sorry, this game's history cannot be downloaded."

From 2017 ... there are likely some others that are "older" though likely not many if any that have a higher # of turns.

The SP game is at turn 750 rn, I kinda assume it will keep going forever, but if it doesnt it should stop around 1k turns I think

There is a 1000 turn limit to downloading it. (My fault, that restriction. I think you know why)

If you want a game thats not just a guy playing his alt since 2017, here's a 4 year old big diplo game I hosted that's still going strong:
https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=12321956. It was originally an 18th century era diplo, but now it's modernday in it lol.

This post was made before btw. Fizzer responded that he is apparently still playing a game from 2014 or so with someone, not automated. I don't have the link though.

Cute that those 3 players were a few territories each and ~100 income have been hanging out and chilling with the big boys who have incomes in the thousands for 3.5 years.
