I like it, but as a math undergraduate I wish we have gone through some of the exciting research trend in combinatorial game theory.

Gives a great Basic Overview with basic examples of the Game Theory. However i wouldn't consider it suitable for Professional Uses.

Fantastic Course. Presented in a fun way

This course is interesting, understandable and fairly easy to follow but also offers a lot to learn for a beginner. The instructor is very witty. Most videos are short and to the point. But some explanations especially theory is not as easy. I would recommend anyone planning on this course to finish it quickly and treat it just as a starter to CGT and then decide if you wanna keep moving (I think you might be affirmative because this sure is an interesting course!) I just think more resources could've been added and the theoretical explanations could have been more detailed.

very fun introduction course. it doesn't take much time. however we don't go much in depth, just the concepts are given. The strategy to win at Nim is given as well, but no proof of it, not even as an extra, which is a bit disappointing because it was kind of being the highlight of the course. i guess we have to think by ourselves to understand why it works (or google it...)
i was surprised to discover symbols such as up, down, star, ... and all those surreal numbers... the last lecture leaves us wanting more but alas the course is too short

It's a fine course which enables you to learn some interesting things about simple games and a branch of mathematics most people are unaccustomed with. It doesn't need much previous knowledge, although a decent level of mathematics and mathematical logic is very helpful especially when it comes to understanding new terms and definitions. The professor helps you with simple examples when something seeming difficult to get comes up, but beware his weird sense of humor! Enjoy the course!

The course topic itself and the syllabus was interesting and magnetic especially for someone like me who is equally interested in Economics, Game Theory, Mathematics and Computer Science. But I do feel that the concepts can be dealt with more theoretically so as to build formal background. I know it is difficult to make it mathematically heavy but still some of the concepts should have a theoretical explanation and proofs.
Overall, course was good and I learnt a lot of new things.

This course is interesting but I think, really, more materials is needed if I want to completely understand the concepts in week 6&7.

Nice course and nice lecturer, I have learnt a lot of new things of Combinatorial Game theory. Thank you.

Good course, but a more formal treatment and more quiz questions would be better.

A nice introduction to the topic. Suitable for a beginner.

Could have been a bit more in detail. Was too basic

A good introduction to games without chance.

The course was very easy to follow and it gave me an excellent glimpse of combinatorial game theory. Thank you Professor Tom. However, I was expecting a more challenging level for a university course. I think that expectations were too low and on the quizzes there should have been less multiple choice, or at least more choices, more questions and a harder level. I do not think that as a 14 year old I should complete a 7 week university course in 3 days.

forum is not well maintained
need a bit more mathematical proof, or some concepts/theorems can be confusing
extra problems don't have answers, prove periodicity of subtraction game seems hard and I can't find hints...

I wish this course was offered when I was 14-15 years old. If you have a child of that age, who is interested in mathematics, let her follow this class. I was expecting something on undergraduate level instead.

It is good course but it is not for you if you are seeking a to learn the mathematical definition and the algorithms to solve games problems. It taught you how to play games to have fun with your friends.

The math is interesting but presentation is not good, no one in forum to answer your question too.

Interesting intro course, but I expected more theory during the lessons.

Liked the charisma and jokes of the lecturer However, in a lot of cases easily-understood topics were overexplained meanwhile crucial moments in understanding the materials lacked proper explanation

The course is interesting, but many definitions are not clear enough for me. A bit frustrating.

Sadly, I found the presentation poor: not at all fluent, and under-prepared - sometimes what was said was different from what was written (which was correct), potentially causing confusion. Also, some results were given without justifying them, for instance the concept of simplest number was stated but not proper

I found the course content to be too simple, hence uninteresting.
