  abstract =     "The HUMIES awards are an annual competition held in
                 conjunction with the Genetic and Evolutionary
                 Computation Conference (GECCO), in which cash prizes
                 totalling 10,000 USA dollars are awarded to the most
                 human-competitive results produced by any form of
                 evolutionary computation published in the previous
                 year. This article describes the gold medal-winning
                 entry from the 2012 Humies competition, based on the
                 LUDI system for playing, evaluating and creating new
                 board games. LUDI was able to demonstrate human
                 competitive results in evolving novel board games that
                 have gone on to be commercially published, one of
                 which, Yavalath, has been ranked in the top 2.5percent
                 of abstract board games ever invented. Further evidence
                 of human-competitiveness was demonstrated in the
                 evolved games implicitly capturing several principles
                 of good game design, outperforming human designers in
                 at least one case, and going on to inspire a new
                 subgenre of games.",
