- Who wins the game? 1 answer
There are 50 lucifers on the table.
The rules are:
-You must take 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 lucifers each turn.
-After player 1 has taken some amount of lucifers, it is player 2's turn, and vice versa.
-The player who takes the last lucifer wins!
Find a strategy that you can almost always win.
Hint: It has to do with the amount of maximum lucifers you can take.
Here is a different game:
If the player picks the last lucifer, he loses!
(this one is a little harder)
