I used to excuse the casual racism in this blog which shows up in this post again towards the end because the rest of the writing is often interesting. However, the https://educationrealist.wordpress.com/2015/09/20/education-proposals-final-thoughts/ was the final straw for me.

This reminds me of Nim where you have three or more groups of objects. Players take turns removing objects from one group until someone takes the last object. That player wins or losses depending on how you want to play.

It's fun to play in class. It has accessible mathematical analysis which, of course, closes the game.

A more simple version is to put all the objects in one group but limit how many can be taken at a time until someone is forced to take the last one. Kids will usually analyse this one on their own.
