Hi,

This is not a "game problem" per-se, but I am not sure which other forum this question belongs to.

The rules given to Bajr seem nonsensical to me. The pages says X wins when her 3 checkers land on O's start checkers.

So, if (say) there is a winning strategy for X, O will simply leave one checker home and move the other two randomly. Similarly for O.

So this game, under best play, is always drawn. What am I missing?

Thanks, Jo
