‘Dear Vlad, thank you very much for a copy of your CTOR game. I find it very helpful in terms of popularization of mathematical biology and development of a player’s thinking process on different levels of the game’s rules. I am sure this can be a very interesting article in our magazine.’
“I know Dr. Bronn for many years, and I am amazed at his perseverance and determination and his efforts directed to the development of CTOR, whose perspectives go far beyond a simple game; CTOR is rather a very interesting and exciting tool for the development, implementation and analysis of different systems of individual and collective thinking. No one knows how this story will end, but it's always worth trying something new, especially if this new is produced by your brains.
“The game has great potential. Despite the simple rules, learning successful strategies is not easy. CTOR can be compared to the most complex abstract game: Go (also known Weiqi, Baduk, and Igo), but it has an additional dynamic component that minimizes the role of standard tactics. And, CTOR has not been modeled on computers like chess, Go or checkers. So, I would recommend CTOR to anyone who loves a fair game without unbeatable bots»
‘Brain study is one of the biggest challenges of our days. CTOR, a game based on deep understanding of human thinking processes, combines simple behavioral patterns of living organisms and complex decision-making processes within communities. Game strategies in this game are much more diverse than those of traditional strategy games like chess or go.’
“CTOR game has no doubt a strong future ahead. The game has incredible research potential across numerous fields, from education to organizational behaviour to mental health”.
Dear Vladimir, your game is wonderful, and it has good prospects. I wish you success and hope you will make it!’
“I started playing CTOR when I was 14 years old at the St. Petersburg Young Pioneer Palace, where the game’s main club was located. A year later, I became champion of Russia. I would say the game had a great effect on my life and helped me develop my thinking skills. Even now I sit down to play sometimes, but so far, I haven’t found any worthy rivals. The release of the game in Canada, the USA, and other countries will incentivize more people to start playing and get better. One day I would be happy to compete for the title of World Champion.”
“You can actually feel yourself getting smarter as you play this game. You can have numerous ‘Aha’ moments and it’s like you begin to recognize how you think, learn and process new information.”
