(42S) NIM
This implementation of the strategy game Nim is how it was played in the film L'Année dernière à Marienbad using 4 heaps with 1, 3, 5 and 7 objects (e.g. matches or coins).
However it is not played using the misère game condition. But this isn't difficult to change.

It's a boring game: you always have to start. The calculator always wins.

Example:
XEQ "NIM"
1 3 5 7
A B C D

1 D
1 3 4 6
A B C D

1 C
1 3 3 1
A B C D

1 B
1 2 3 0
A B C D

1 A
0 2 2 0
A B C D

2 B
0 0 0 0
A B C D

If you wanted to play using the misère game condition the last move would have just taken 1 object from heap C.
