1. ## Interesting game problem (packing)

There is a game called the penny game. In the penny game, you and your oppenent take turns placing pennies on a circular table. You are not allowed to cover up any pennies with a move. If you find that you can not make a move, then you loose. Do you want to go first or 2nd? What if the table is square, triangular, pentagonal, hexagonal, eccetera?

There is a game called the Penny Game.
You and your oppenent take turns placing pennies on a circular table.
You are not allowed to cover up any pennies with a move.
If you find that you cannot make a move, then you lose.

Do you want to go first or second?

You make the first move.
. . Place your penny $(\diamondsuit)$in the exact center of the table.

In the subsequent moves, no matter where he places his penny $(\spadesuit)$,
. . you place yours diametrically opposite his.

Code:


♠
\
\   ◊
\ /
◊ - - - - ◊ - - - - ♠
/ \
♠   \
\
◊

You will always have a move.
