Two people are playing a game. The first player announces "January 1". From then on, each player announces a date that's later in the year, subject to the proviso that only the month name or the date of the month can change, not both. The object is to be the one to announce "December 31".
If you're the second player, what date do you announce after the first player has announced "January 1", and what is your strategy from there on?
2nd Player always announces January 30th
Next, 1st player must choose:
a) Month 30th
b) Month 31st
if he/she does (b) announce December 31st - WIN
if he/she does (A)..
2nd Player announces November 30th
1st Player forced to respond with December 30th
2nd player announces December 31st - WIN
