There is a new game where you can win $10k for writing the best bot for a 2-player game Terminal: https://terminal.c1games.com. There are some smaller local competitions, mainly for universities. In short, it's a tower-defense game where you build towers to defend against minions sent by your opponent, and at the same time you attack with minions too.
I have some experience with games like this (we had a few 24-hour game-bot competitions in Poland), so I think I can share some knowledge and intuition. I will stream on Wednesday (1pm CEST), Friday and Sunday. You can see the exact time on my Youtube channel as a scheduled event. If you miss it, you can watch a video later.
I talked with contest organizers and they encourage the stream, but ofc. you shouldn't expect to hear something enough to get top1.
