Lecture no. 12 from the course: The Mathematics of Games and Puzzles: From Cards to Sudoku

Winning Ways—It’s Your Move!

Taught by Professor Arthur T. Benjamin | 47 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Mathematics Courses

Finish this engaging series with a look back at the three categories that most games fall into (games where the last player to move wins, games where the goal is to be the first to create a structure, and games where the player who accumulates the most stuff wins). Cram, NIM, Chomp, Connect Four—play them all. Also, take a look at how computers play games—and how they’ve helped us become better players.
