I don't think that game is actually possible to beat. No matter what you do, that weirdo can beat you. But keep trying guys, lol.

Interesting game. ;-D

I lost a few, but I'm going to give it some more thought after I get caught up. :-)

welll... .if you wanna figure it out for yourself, stop reading now...

let him go first. for me he just kept taking all but one of the longest row. take the whole shortest row.
next he did his thing and then I reduced it down to three rows, with 1,2 and 3 marbles.

whatever he does, knock it down to 2 and 2
it should be simple from there :)

That's how I beat him. I let him go first. He took out all but one on the biggest row. I eliminated the row of just 3. He took 1 out of the row of 4. I took 3 out of the row of 5. He took 1 out of what was left of the row of 4 which left 2. I took out the last one in the row of 6 which left only 2 on 2 rows. He took one, and I eliminated the opposite row which left the last ball for him. :-)

I keep trying my own ways, but I just can't get it done.

I know I hvae to get it to {3,2,1}, {2,2}, {3,3}, but I can't get it to that. I had him at 1,2,3 a couple times but I screwed it up :*)
