According to some calculations, Hive has not too many positions to check them all out through programming, and basically make the best possible AI for it. Has it been done yet?

    I don't know Hive, but most people in that thread are only talking about the placement of the first three pieces, which probably isn't enough to solve the game. – RemcoGerlich Jul 1 '15 at 11:59
  • @RemcoGerlich oh, now I see. And next pieces' placements raise total number exponentially, I guess. – RomaValcer Jul 1 '15 at 15:59

No, just the total number of placements is far too huge to "solve", and that doesn't even start to take into account movements occurring between placements.
