In November 2011 the Computer Olympiad took place in the nice Dutch town Tilburg. This time, also "EinStein würfelt nicht" was played in the event. Six teams competed, two each from the Netherlands, the U.S., and Germany. A very special participant was the program "MeinStein", written by Theo van der Storm. Theo passed away in 2009. But the bot was allowed to play, operated by Theo's friend Jan Krabbenbos.
A report on the tournament was written by Wesley Turner. It can
be found in the June 2012 issue of the ICGA Journal. Here are
some pictures from the event.
