The Pearls Before Swine game is a game of "NIM", a two-player mathematical game of strategy in which players take turns removing objects (pearls in this case) from distinct heaps.

A normal play game may start with heaps of 3, 4 and 5 objects:

Nim has been mathematically solved for any number of initial heaps and objects; that is, there is an easily-calculated way to determine which player will win and what winning moves are open to that player. In a game that starts with heaps of 3, 4, and 5, the first player will win with optimal play, whether the misère or normal play convention is followed.

OK....are you tired of losing? Here's How To WIN!


1. Take 2 from A (top row of 2).
2. Pirate takes 1 from B (second row of 4).
3. Take 3 from C (botton row of 5).
4. Pirate takes 1 from B.
5. Take remaining pearl from A.
6. Pirate takes 1 from B.
