Re: "some obscure board game"

I assumed that the game in question was chess, because the last I heard Go was *waaay* too difficult for brute forcing, er, I mean, sophisticated AI algos.

However, since the casino games in the word's markets *also* appear to be too difficult, despite benefitting from research budgets that chess players can only dream about, I don't think it actually matters. The only way AI is likely to destroy us in the foreseeable future is if we are ever stupid enough to believe that it has arrived and can safely be left in charge of <insert important thing>.
