And how satisfying, to be able to stun some friends one afternoon by beating them consistently at dots and boxes, because I happened to remember the theory behind the game. And how did I baffle them once when I solved a (supposedly very tough) nim-like problem in a newspaper in an instant, because I could remember Sprague-Grundy theory.
I can't recommend these splendid volumes enough.
They have given me countless hours of joy.
well worth the effort. You can always tell the work of a genius because it illuminates the landscape and shows us things we have never seen before. I design games for a living and this book rocks! Hackenbush, Nimbers, games with 1/2 move advantage. Well illustrated. ONLY PROBLEM: Where are volumes 2-4?
