Block Islands
Each of these four islands contains two stacks of blocks. Your shipmate has challenged you to a takeaway game at the island of
your choosing. You will make the first move, and then turns will alternate. Each turn, a player may remove either any number of blocks from one stack or an equal number of blocks from each of the two stacks. The winner is the player who removes the last block from the island. Which island should you pick, and what block(s) should you remove?
