Calendar Game (Posted on 2011-01-02) Difficulty: 2 of 5
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?

There is no other strategy than the one presented by SH and me.

Once ian20 response was chosen, there is no way A can cause B to become short of  a MM,MM+19 response.
