take a look at ths cool effect!: http://www.sandlotscience.com/Distortions/Breathing_objects.htm
It’s pretty much similar to a sine wave in concept.
see if you can beat the comp.! : http://www.sandlotscience.com/Games/21_matches.htm i’m trying right now…comp 1 me 0
That game is impossible to win.
took me 4 shots before understanding, darn I’m slow today.
— SPOILER ALERT —
Now I have 11/14 chances of winning, depanding on the initial number of matches.
nb = number of matches
The trick is to always leave the computer with (nb % 4 = 1) after each of your move.
Your first move is to reduce the number of matches to fit this rule. After that, always eliminate a number of matches as to always comply to this rules (that means that the number of matches that the computer eliminates + the number of matches that you eliminate must be equal to 4).
anyway, that was fun for a while.
let me try that…
you talk too fast young grasshoper…
now this is weird… http://www.eyetricks.com/jesus.htm :o
theeth: wow…i can’t do it.
- SPOILER -
If you start with 17, 21 or 25 matches, you are screwed.
Otherwise, follow those rules.
14, 18, 22, 26 matches: remove 1 match
15, 19, 23, 27 matches: remove 2 matches
16, 20, 24, 28 matches: remove 3 matches
After the first move, your opponent is already doom, as long as you follow that rule:
if he removes 1 match, remove 3
if he removes 2 matches, remove 2
if he removes 3 matches, remove 1
mind over matter
i won!!! LOL. thanx theeth!
