My name appears somewhere in Football Manager 2007 credits since I was a researcher for the game’s player database. I still actively play FM, currently leading Bohemians FC and Ghana National Team in FM 2017.
A game I made in 2011/2012 as a part of a graduate software design course was based on Landau’s license plate game (I wrote about it in math.e (in Croatian) and Mathematical Intelligencer (in English)). The game, originally written for Linux (Ubuntu) and recompiled as a demo for Windows, has several difficulty levels and a multiplayer mode. I am not developing it anymore, and it would be great if someone wanted to continue with it: maybe turning it into a phone app?
The game’s name is Dau (its old website is still available on web archive) and the source code, ‘deb file and some of the windows version files are available here. Be warned, it’s a mess. The game’s manual is also available.
Games, Sports, Hobbies
I play board games and chess variants: shogi is by far my favourite (My love for chess, shogi and go is a few orders of magnitude greater than my playing skill, though). I would also like to have a go at designing a board game or a card game.
I’m an amateur radio operator as well, E73HS and a member of ETF Sarajevo Radio Club. I am not very active at the moment, but that should change in due time.
And yeah, I solve maths problems as a hobby. I used to was Bosnia and Herzegovina IMO (International Mathematical Olympiad) team member in 2006 and 2007, and I still enjoy solving and creating Olympiad problems and teaching contestants a thing or two about combinatorics and/or number theory.
