    Abstract

    The Strategy Game Description Game Language (SGDL) is intended to become a complete description of all aspects of strategy games, including rules, parameters, scenarios, maps, and unit types. Our aim is to be able to model a wide variety of strategy games, simple ones as well as complex commercially available titles. In our previous work [1] we introduced the basic concepts of modelling game rules in a tree structure and evaluating them through simulated playthrough. In this paper we present some additions to the language and discuss and compare three methods to evaluate the quality of a set of game rules in two different scenarios. We find that the proposed evaluation measures are complementary, and depend on the artificial agent used.
