Summary We research a combinatorial game based on the Cookie Monster problem called the Cookie Monster game that generalizes the games of Nim and Wythoff. We also propose several combinatorial games between this Cookie Monster game and Nim, and discuss the winning positions of these games.

Emptying Sets: The Cookie Monster Problem
Given a set of integers $S = \{k_1,\ k_2,...,\ k_n\}$, the Cookie Monster Problem is the problem of making all elements of the set equal 0 in the minimum number of moves. Consider the analogy of
