The Fifty Game

The Fifty Game

The Fifty Game 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?  A unique Creative Crafthouse game designed by Stephen R Bradd of Illinois and made in Florida.The alder playing board measures 7″ square.  A wood cover encloses the game.  Playing pegs are hand turned.  All text is laser engraved onto the board.

Trying to see how the pieces fit and re-assessing where they can go if they do not fit is a good exercise to check and re-evaluate the choices. Each piece can only come in one place, so there is no compromise and negotiation that takes place in so many other aspects of modern life. This forces the player to continually re-evaluate his decisions and learns to be patient with the process because it is an integral part of the game.
