Lumiappaday #225: You Can’t Beat Me demoed on the Nokia Lumia 900

This is not the most thrilling looking game but it is a fun simple brain teaser. It’s called “Can You Beat Me?” I remember playing a game with the same premise called ‘Pearls Before Swine‘ but stripped back to just a clean appearance. Basically you are taking ‘pearls’ out of three different boxes per each turn. The aim is to leave the opponent with the final pearl. I’m not sure if there’s an actual name for this game.

The game title is oddly slightly different to the tile.

I’d love for this game to evolve with some animation and colour.

Developer Blurb:

Can you beat me? This simple game can make you must think double to get high level. Just use the “Nim number” algorithm and you win.
