- Partisan game
combinatorial game theory, a game is partisan or partizan if it is not impartial. That is, some moves are available to one player and not to the other.
Most games are partisan; for example in
chess, only one player can move the white pieces.
Partisan games are more difficult to analyze than
impartial games, as the Sprague-Grundy theoremdoes not apply. However, the application of combinatorial game theory to partisan games allows the significance of "numbers as games" to be seen, in a way that is not possible with impartial games.
