Restricted (s, t)-Wythoff’s game, introduced by Liu et al. in 2014, is an impartial combinatorial game. We define and solve a class of games obtained from Restricted (s, t)-Wythoff’s game by adjoining to it some subsets of its P-positions as additional moves. The results show that under certain conditions they are equivalent to one case in which only one P-position is adjoined as an additional move. Furthermore, two winning strategies of exponential and polynomial are provided for the games.

We propose a variation of Wythoff’s game on three piles of tokens, in the sense that the losing positions can be derived from the Tribonacci word instead of the Fibonacci word for the two piles game. Thanks to the corresponding exotic numeration system built on the Tribonacci sequence, deciding whether a game position is losing or not can be computed in polynomial time.

A cooperative game is defined as a set of players and a cost function. The distribution of the whole cost between the players can be done using the core concept, that is the set of all undominated cost allocations which prevent players from grouping. In this paper we study a game whose cost function comes from the optimal solution of a linear integer covering problem. We give necessary and sufficient conditions for the core to be nonempty and characterize its allocations using linear programming...
