I know this was originally done for a competition in the computer club I was a part of, displayed at the annual 4-H fair in August. It's fair to assume it was completed during the intervening four months, while I was 14 years old. The computer plays against you with decent AI. Given the simplicity of the game, it has a fair chance of beating you.
There's not a lot more to say that's not in the video. Just be sure to watch far enough to hear the awesome sound effects! See the source if you're curious: https://gist.github.com/1299983
