The game of Drips is a real challenge!

It's a game for two players, who take turns to remove as many drips as they like from a single drip trail. The person who takes the very last drip wins. You can play the game against a friend (using coins for drips) or against the computer with the interactivity on Wild Maths.

Once you've played a few times, can you find a winning strategy? You might might find some inspiration in this article.

Have fun!
