Nim is a simple game used for examples in combinatorial game theory. The rules of nim are simple:
- The game begins with some piles of counters.
- Players alternate turns.
- On a turn, a player takes counters from a pile. At least one counter must be taken, but up to 3. All counters must be in the same pile.
- If a player cannot take a counter, that player loses.
