comment Small World: Why does it use 3-point coins?
Another possibility is component efficiency (although base 2 is the best). The game comes with 35 (1VP) coins, and 20 (3VP) coins. If your next lowest denomination coin is 5VP instead of 3VP, you need 4 * (#Players = 5) + 4 * (#Races in Sideboard - 1 = 5) 1VP tokens. A grand total of 40 1VP tokens instead of only 20 1VP tokens using 3VP as your next denomination. (5VP) wouldn't be a component of a base10 numbering system, which is extremely inefficient with components, requiring 90 possible 1VP tokens.

comment Most human-like chess AI
@BrianS, Wikipedia says that Alan proposed the imitation test. Alan argued that machines could play a good game of chess, but was explaining that machines can imitate thinking.
