# Blotto Games

Colonel Blotto is a game in which you assign soldiers to fields.

In this instantiation, there are 10 fields and 100 soldiers. You must specify how many soldiers to send to each of the 10 fields. You don't know what the opposing general will do. Then, in each field, the soldiers face off: whoever has more soldiers wins the battle. Whoever wins more battles wins the war.

For example, a valid strategy would be "10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10". Another strategy would be "1 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11 11". The second strategy will lose in the first field, but win the other 9, and therefore win the war.

Note that the order of the numbers matters. Strategies will be ranked by points. You recieve 2 points for winning against another strategy and 1 point for drawing, 0 for a loss.

Below you can enter your own strategies. These will be entered into a round robin tournament against all other strategies in the database, and the top strategies will be displayed here. Upon successfull submission, the table should be recalculated. You might have to refresh.

If you change the web address so that it ends in "index.php?author=youridentifier", you will be able to see your previously entered strategies.

# Submission Form

 Author: This is a unique identifier that represents you. You can see all of the strategies you have entered by adding "?author=yourauthorname" to the end of index.php in the address above. This is a primitive security feature so that you can see your own strategies but no one elses. Strategy Name: This is the name you want to give your strategy. It will appear by this name in the standings. This is public to all. Keep it PG. Strategy: Enter your strategy here, as a series of 10 integers separated by spaces. E.g. "10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10". The sum of your numbers must be 100. Use single spaces to separate, with no spaces before or after.
