    This is exactly why I don't really understand trying to compete against a supercomputer at something that's math/strategy based. What about something more unique? Like poetry? Give it a parameter - "autumn" or something of that nature (no pun intended) - and compete against a human opponent to write meaningful poetry in a limited amount of time.
