The computer challenges the player in a simple two-player strategy game. There's a pile of matches (the player decides the size) and each turn the player and computer may take one, two or three matches from the pile. The player to take the last match loses.


Published in July 1973 as a type-in program in the 101 BASIC Computer Games book.
