Hello everyone,

Recently I've started to interest programs that play in various games. I'd like to create one, for example one that play checkers.

Do you know any books/tutorials/websites that could help me?

I'd like to discover for instance: recommended techniques how to code complex minmax algorithms, programs that can adjust to opponents' play, how to code managing differrent strategies for play and so on, so on.

Thanks in advance.

Check out Artificial Intelligence — A Modern Approach. It has a nice explanation of min-max and alpha-beta with examples from chess and backgammon.
