"No Numeration Without Representation"

A complicated version of "eeny, meeny, miny, moe," some two-player token collecting games, a mystery of identifying a counterfeit coin, and certain magic card tricks can all be explained by letting go of our usual method of representing the numbers involved. After describing each of the problems, we'll pursue a "choose-your-own-adventure" path to showing how nonstandard numeration systems give rise to interesting solutions to the problems.
