Why can't I beat these games?

Recommended Posts

The stone game is unwinnable, it's cheating. 6, computer's turn, it takes 1 for total of 5. I take 1, for 4. It takes 1 for 3, and game ends.

Don't take stones out of the pile. Bash computers face in with your bare fists. Where are my 100$

You can't win the game because the starting parameters are stacked against you. As soon as the remaining stones are a multiple of 4 plus 1 (5, 9, 13, 17, etc) you have lost.

Now have a look at the number at the start and at who starts...
