<P>Nim is a game for two people, but here you will be playing
against a machine!</P>

<P>In this version of Nim there are always 5 rows of sticks, but
you get to choose how many sticks are initially in each row. </P>

<P>The players take turns removing some
of the sticks (up to all) in a row. The winner is the player
who takes the last stick.</P>
