and the second para. should be:"Since the sum row has 1's in the 2^2, 2^1 and 2^0 columns, we must change the 1 in the 2^2 to 0 and the 0's in the 2^2 and 2^0 columns to 1. That is, pile's 4's binary expansion should be changed from from 100 to 011, and so player A should remove 1 stick in the 4th pile. This new positionn (2,2,3,3) has a Grundy number of 0."

Sect 5.1, Exer.37: Break into case for 3 different values for smallest and largest: if 1 and 2, then each die can be 1 or 2-- 2^3 choices-- minus the case where all are 1 or all are 2, and so answer in this case is 2^3 -2; if 2 and 4, then each die can be 2 or 3 or 4-- 3^3 choices-- minus the cases where all are 2 or 3 and all are 3 or 4-- 2x2^3 possibilities, and so answer in this case is 3^3 - 2x2^3.
