  abstract =     "Recent works have shown that Genetic Programming (GP)
                 can be quite successful at evolving human-competitive
                 strategies for games ranging from classic board games,
                 such as chess, to action video games. However to our
                 knowledge GP was never applied to modern complex board
                 games, so-called eurogames, such as Settlers of Catan,
                 i.e. board games that typically involve four
                 characteristics: they are non zero-sum games,
                 multiplayer, with hidden information and random
                 elements. In this work we study how GP can evolve
                 artificial players from low level attributes of a
                 eurogame named 7 Wonders, that features all the
                 characteristics of this category. We show that GP can
                 evolve competitive artificial intelligence (AI) players
                 against human-designed AI or against Monte Carlo Tree
                 Search, a standard in automatic game playing.",
