I've written a program that can play mini optimally by brute forcing the whole game tree. If anyone is interested I could set up a bot account that would play games if invited. And any human-parseable insights that I get out of it I would share. All I know so far is 2+O is a draw.
I should clarify that I have not and would not use it myself during games. I would only use it in games that a separate bot account is playing.
Personally I am welcomed such researches/bots.
Same research is interesting about Polyomino Penta. How you can estemate computational complexity of Penta variant?
From random sampling of the game tree, I estimate the total number of mini games, after picking an opening pair, at 1012 and the number of penta games between 1047 and 10^55. Penta would need something more clever than myself armed with a computer crunching through the tree all the way to the end.
That's meant to be “1012 and the number of penta games between 1047 and 1055”
