This workshop will focus on the two-player games such as Nim, Northcotts, Turning Turtles, and Nimble. It will propose a sequence of games to participants and will lead them to unveil the mathematical structure that allows for winning strategies. Results of initial explorations will be used by participants to understand subsequent games, understanding both invariants and variations. Binary numbers and nim-sum are the main mathematical concepts underlying the analysis. Classification of moves into P or NP (favoring previous or next player) will also be explained in the workshop and applied by participants.
