Ultimate Nim

Hey everyone! This is my first post in #CosinesGroup, and I really don't know what to write here. I hope my post doesn't sound too spammy. Anyways, I recently stumbled upon this awesome app for iOS which I'd like to share with the community.

Most of you have probably heard of Nim games. If not, you should check it out here. There's another version of Nim, called Misère nim, where the last person to remove a stone loses.

The app I found today, Ultimate Nim is designed to play a game of Nim with the user. You can switch modes from Normal Nim to Misère Nim. You can also choose a suitable difficulty level.

Unlike most of the other puzzles / games available in AppStore, Ultimate Nim always starts with a winning position, which essentially means you can always win if you play optimally! You just have to figure out a winning strategy, and that's your challenge! ;)

*P.S: * Note that this app isn't free, it costs $1\$ 1. That isn't too costly, I believe.

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

  • Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
  • Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
  • Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

I just spent $1 to play a game at which I always lose!
