Explore Simple Game Algorithms with Color Walk: Part 2

In this series we are taking a look at different game algorithms using the simple game Color Walk as a sandbox for exploration and discovery. The last post was an introduction that described what Color Walk is, explained how to get it running on your own setup, and presented some brainstorming of possible algorithms to explore. This post will start digging into the simplest of those algorithms: round-robin, but first, we need to build up some tooling around the Color Walk JavaScript code to make it easier to test out our algorithms and benchmark their performance. We'll use the round-robin algorithm as a vehicle to help develop this tooling, so we have something to play with while getting the benchmark tooling up and running.
