Bagchal, an ancient two player logical board game that used to be played on a rectangular board containing 25 nodes is getting less popular due to the inconvenience of making board and collecting beads. In this project I worked to develop a computerized version of the game. The game was first developed in non-graphic form where all the legal moves are defined along with various conditions where one player can eliminate his or her opponent. After that, it was converted into two player graphic modes where two people can play with each other, allowing them to choose a team of their interest. Further it was developed by introducing Artificial Intelligence to the computer. At this step I programmed the game to look at the next 3 possible steps before making any movement. Along with its movement it also checks for the movement of the opponent and calculates its best movement.
