What Is BattleSnake?

BattleSnake is a programming competition held in Victoria, BC. Teams of students and developers build web-based AIs for the classic arcade game "Snake".

Multiple teams will compete on the same board at the same time, and the winner will be the last team slithering!

There will be over $5,000 in prizes given away throughout the day, across two tournament divisions. The Classic Division will feature familiar gameplay mechanics and have a grand prize of $500. The Advanced Division will offer a higher level of competitiveness and a $1,000 grand prize.

BattleSnake is being held at the Victoria Conference Centre, located at 720 Douglas St.
