Aaron Siegel has come back from Israel where he gave five two-hour lectures on misere games.

  1. Normal play
  2. Octal games and misere play
  3. The periodicity theorem
  4. More examples
  5. Further topics

Students and faculty from the Weizmann helped Aaron prepare excellent notes that are now available (PDF).

Many thanks to Aviezri Fraenkel at the Weizmann Institute for creating this opportunity to spread the word about misere games and their intriguing algebra!
