After all of the heroes have acted, then the environment has its own turn. Again, the sequence is: start of the turn, play a card, end of the turn.

“Not all of our intelligence is under our conscious control,” said Brooks. “There are many layers of intelligence that don’t require introspection.” In other words, the emphasis on common-sense reasoning doesn’t apply to some efforts in the AI field.

Formed in 1994 during the internet’s Wild West days, the W3C’s original intent was to provide the unifying rulebook the web’s disparate developers could use to build compatible applications. The browser wars of the late 1990s saw Microsoft and Netscape continually trying to one-up each other by adding new, unique features to their respective browsers.
