  • The finite groups Z n arise naturally in the 75-year-old Sprague- Grundy theory of normal-play impartial combinatorial games. Generaliz- ing the Sprague-Grundy theory to last-player-losing ("misere play") games, we describe the still poorly-understood commutative monoids that arise in misere-play solutions, and some recent progress from a BIRS conference held on our subject held in January 2008.
