Two Zendo-inspired games

LW has often discussed the inductive logic game Zendo, as a possible way of training rationality. But I couldn't find any computer implementations of Zendo online.

So I built two (fairly similar) games inspired by Zendo; they generate rules and play as sensei. The code is on GitHub, along with some more explanation. To run the games you'll need to install Python 3, and Scikit-Learn for the second game; see the readme.

All bugfixes and improvements are welcome. For instance, more rule classes or features would improve the game and be pretty easy to code. Also, if anyone has a website and wants to host this playable online (with CGI, say), that would be awesome.
