This is a game that is quick and easy to play, but you must have a winning strategy to reach the finish hole (50) first.
Player 1 selects one of the 8 number ranges possible; such as 1-7. The range stays constant during the game. Player 2 then starts by moving his peg any number of holes within the allowable range. Player 1 then leap frogs player 2 by any number of holes within the range.
Players alternate turns until one player advances to the finish hole and wins the game.
Can you figure out the math such that you can win nearly all the time?
