You and an opponent are sharing a regular sheet of paper. You will play an area game. Your opponent goes first and marks a single point in the center of the paper. You will make a mark in a different location and then it is their turn, your turn and so on. The game continues until you each have four points on the paper. As this is the "Voronoi Game", the paper is then divided into 8 areas. An area is created by drawing perpendicular lines between the nearest points (Inspired by Phil's puzzle) until enough perpendicular lines define the area (ensuring that the border defines area that is closest to that receptive point). Is there a strategy that you can utilize to ensure you have the largest total area at the end of the game?
