Clobber is a game invented in Halifax by Michael Albert, J. P. Grossman and Richard Nowakowski. The first competitive Clobber tournament was held at Dagstuhl, Germany, in February 2002.


Solitaire version

Erik Demaine and Martin Demaine of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Rudolf Fleischer of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology have studied a solitaire version of Clobber.
The rules of the solitaire game are exactly the same, but the white and black players play as a single player. The goal is to remove as many or few stones as possible from the board by alternating white and black moves.
