I want to create a AI for chess like game.
Could anyone point me to sources of information what should I know before implementing anything like that.
Some details about the game. There are 5 figures that can make moves and each of them can make a move based on cards that player own. After taking a move card is discarded and player must take another from the deck. Game is won after "king" is taken from the board or king's square is occupied by opposing king.
Any guidance is appreciated :)
