Bhoos Game, in collaboration with LOCUS, has announced the second edition of its “Smart Bots Coding Challenge”. So if you’re a programmer looking for some challenge, to meet like-minded coders, or to share ideas, then this might be exactly what you need. And in this post, we’ll be going through all the details of the Bhoos Smart Bots Coding Challenge 2023, including its eligibility criteria, event roadmap, prizes, and more.
Bhoos Smart Bots Coding Challenge 2023:
In case you didn’t know, Bhoos is a Nepali mobile gaming company that has published games like “Call Break Premier League” and “Marriage Card Game” on Play Store and App Store. Whereas LOCUS is an umbrella organization led by undergraduate students of Electrical, Electronics, and Computer Engineering departments from IOE, Pulchowk Campus.
Anyway, the Bhoos Smart Bots Coding Challenge 2023 is a 4-month-long event (or 3 months without the registration period). And this time, the challenge is to build a “29 Points” game bot from scratch.
This 4-player (2 teams) game is quite popular in South Asia. In this, Jack (J) is the highest-ranking card, followed by Nine (9), Ace (A), Ten (10), King (K), Queen (Q), and then eights (8) and sevens (7). On the other hand, the remaining cards (2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, and 6s) are discarded from the game. You can learn more about the rules and objectives of the 29 Points game here.
