Nineteen is played on a 3x3 hexagonal board.
- TURN - On each turn, each player must do one of the following actions:
- Remove one stone
- Remove two adjacent stones
- Remove three stones forming a triangle
- GOAL - Loses the player that removes the last stone
One possible opening move: removing 3 stones.
Some words from the author: The player who takes the last piece loses, he doesn't win. If it is a win to take the last piece, the first player has a simple winning strategy: Take the center piece and then mirror your opponent's moves.
