Winning and losing positions in the well-known two-player game, Nim, are defined recursively as a two symbol sequence depending on a $k$-parameter set known as the subtraction set. In this paper, we write the recursion as a nonlinear dynamical system defined on the phase space $\mathbb Z_2^{s_k}$ with the binary sequence for Nim generated by the appropriate initial conditions. The transient dynamics and Garden of Eden points are completely determined for arbitrary-sized subtraction sets. A characterization of cycle lengths for two parameter subtraction sets is determined. Extensions of the two parameter case to an arbitrary-sized subtraction set are explored.
