Clearer exposition than Winning Ways Dec 18 2013
By Alexandre Sierra Ballarin - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
More like a textbook for use in a course than the seminal work Winning Ways. The best option is to have both, but I'd start with this one.
Approachable alternative to On Numbers and Games Oct. 19 2013
By Frog Bomb - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book gives the reader a first look at a mathematical field known as "combinatorical game theory," which is (in short) the mathematical theory of board games and paper-pencil games. The field is surprisingly deep, and this book is very good at introducing the reader to it. No real mathematical knowledge is needed to understand the theory other than basic arithmetic, however it does help to know proof techniques and have some mathematical skills. If you do not like math, do not get this book! Although this text is approachable, this doesn't mean that it's for everyone! However, I enjoyed it immensely and would recommend it to anyone who wants a bit of a challenge but not something that is incomprehensible.
