Pearls Before Swine

Pearls Before Swine is a silly little Flash game that made the rounds a few years ago, but has kind of disappeared.

It’s really simple, it’s based on the game Nim. The gist of the game is this: you have three rows of pearls. You and the computer player take turns taking as many as you’d like from any one row, and the one who takes the last one loses.

It’s that simple… and it’s that hard. Unless you have a firm grasp of the rules of Nim, you’re going to lose at this game a lot. And then you have to put up with the actually kind of annoying laughter from your opponent. But if you win… oh man. I won’t spoil it for you.

You can try your hand at it here. But I wouldn’t budget more than about 10 minutes for it.
