What Do You Know About Fibonacci Nim?

Dating back to the year 1963, Fibonacci nim was modeled off the original Nim game by a prominent mathematician and made popular by another mathematician. This mathematical game is played by promising kids and maths enthusiasts, who alternately remove coins from a pile of coins. However, another game—with very similar rules—bears the same name, but this is the popular one.
