Games of no chance : combinatorial games at MSRI, 1994 by Richard J Nowakowski( Book )

23 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in English and Italian and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Combinatorial games are finite, two-person, full-information games such as chess, checkers, go, domineering, dots-and-boxes, nim, and many others. This volume, arising from a workshop held at MSRI in July 1994, represents a significant addition to the literature of combinatorial games
The game of cops and robbers on graphs by Anthony Bonato( Book )

14 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the first and only one of its kind on the topic of Cops and Robbers games, and more generally, on the field of vertex pursuit games on graphs. The book is written in a lively and highly readable fashion, which should appeal to both senior undergraduates and experts in the field (and everyone in between). One of the main goals of the book is to bring together the key results in the field; as such, it presents structural, probabilistic, and algorithmic results on Cops and Robbers games. Several recent and new results are discussed, along with a comprehensive set of references. The book is suitable for self-study or as a textbook, owing in part to the over 200 exercises. The reader will gain insight into all the main directions of research in the field and will be exposed to a number of open problems

Lessons in play : an introduction to combinatorial game theory by Michael H Albert( Book )

12 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Starting from the very basics of gameplay and strategy, the authors cover a wide range of topics, from game algebra and surreal numbers to special classes of games. Classic techniques are Introduced and applied in novel ways to analyze both old and new games, several appearing for the first time in this book. This book makes an excellent guide for undergraduates or for self-study by the enterprising reader, with a generous collection of exercises and problems scattered throughout the book."--Jacket
