Product Description

Review

" ""Winning Ways is an absolute must have for those who are interested in mathematical game theory. It is sure to please any fan of recreational mathematics or simply anyone who is interested in games and how to play them well."" -Jacob McMillen, Math Horizons, November 2005
""The effort involved is amply rewarded as we journey from games of early childhood to the frontiers of research, and these seminal volumes are surely destined to remain essential reading for anyone working in combinatorial game theory."" -The Mathematical Gazette, July 2004"

Enjoyable discussion of many interesting games 15 Oct. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Starting with Hackenbush (thanks to Groucho Marx) this book describes and analyzes a great many interesting games. While the authors are mathematicians, and there is mathematics involved, much of the discussion can be followed by the lay reader.
