A deceptively simple strategy game.

It seems simple enough: One player creates a bridge from the top to the bottom of the game board by connecting circles. The other player creates a bridge from the left to the right by connecting X’s. Whoever builds their bridge first wins.

However, the game is not as simple as it first appears. No, the first person to move will not always win. No, simply blocking your opponent is not an effective strategy. And yes, the computer can apply graph theory better than you can.
