Grundy's Game

Grundy's Game is played with one or more heaps of items. The nature of the items is not important, but in the applet below they may perhaps remind of chocolate squares. The only legal move in the game is to split a single heap into smaller two of different sizes.

To perform a move click between any two (with the above provision) adjacent squares.
