I've been playing some brain game and i've seen this one "The Game of Marienbad" ,where there's a traingle

like figure formed from sticks above each other (( 1-3-5-7 )) .you and "M" will have turns to pick as many

sticks as u wish ,but from a single row.and the loser is the one to pick the last .

So i was wondering ,what is the best strategy to use if you begin first or second.

the two above posters got it; how about something more challenging?

you can pick up sticks along any of the three main lines. the goal is the same, force your opponent to pick up the last one.
what's the optimal strategy?
