How great a role does chance play in ball games? Is it really an advantage to bluff at poker? What are the principles behind non-attacking queens in chess, and the faulty coin among twelve? What mathematical theories underlie games of pure skill, and what fundamental paradoxes of mathematics are brought to light when you study simple automatic games? This book shows how mathematical analysis can throw unexpected light on games of chance, of skill, of choice and on puzzle games.
