Toads & Frogs
In this
game, the Toad and Frog players take turns moving one of their pieces within its horizontal row of lily pads. Toads only move to the right and frogs only move to the left. A piece moves one lily pad per turn, but it may instead jump over an opposing piece that is in its path, provided that the lily pad beyond is vacant. The object of the game is to be the last player to be able to make a legal move. If it is now the Frog player’s turn, which frog should be moved to ensure a victory?
