From New Scientist #999, 6th May 1976
To play this vaguely suggestive game you will need nine cards printed with the words:
LOVE AND HATE FEY GUY AGO TONY GUILT NIL.
You and your opponent take it in turns to pick a word until one of you has collected three with a letter in common. Whoever does so first is the winner.
You lose the toss and your opponent snaps up LOVE. Assuming him to be a master at the game, what must you take to stop him winning?
