When I played the novice computer (to a win total of 5): Me: 4 Ties: 8 AI: 5

When I played the veteran computer (to win total of 5): Me: 5 Ties: 3 AI: 0

Not sure how I pulled that one off! :lol:

Novice 10w 9t 4l

So far I'm good at drawing with it. I keep going for what I think is the safe option, and I was usually right.

...

Veteran 10w 13t 8l

Same thing, but with way more loses. I always sucked at these games...
