The instruction booklet that comes with Dr. Nim not only describes the extremely simple rules of play, but it also presents a detailed write-up of Dr. Nim as a computer.

Dr. Nim was invented by a computer genius. That is why he is so simple to operate and yet so intriguing to play by both young and old.
