[GAMES] - Clobber! Science News

[GAMES] - Clobber! Science News online has a story about an interesting new game.

Clobber was invented last summer at a combinatorial game theory conference in Halifax by Michael Albert of the University of Otago, New Zealand, J.P. Grossman of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Richard J. Nowakowski of Dalhousie University. [...]
Clobber is an example of a combinatorial game—one in which two players move alternately and no chance or hidden information is involved. It ends in a finite number of moves, and the winner is the one who moves last.
