very fun introduction course. it doesn't take much time. however we don't go much in depth, just the concepts are given. The strategy to win at Nim is given as well, but no proof of it, not even as an extra, which is a bit disappointing because it was kind of being the highlight of the course. i guess we have to think by ourselves to understand why it works (or google it...)

i was surprised to discover symbols such as up, down, star, ... and all those surreal numbers... the last lecture leaves us wanting more but alas the course is too short

Excellent! An interesting subject taught by a very good teacher.

I like it, but as a math undergraduate I wish we have gone through some of the exciting research trend in combinatorial game theory.

Tom Marley was fun. He is like a little kid in a candy store.
