has shown that the 3x3 Dodgem game has a forced win for the first
player. In Dodgem, two players try to be the first to get all their

the like-colored arrows. Blue goes first. The best first move is
just a few moves, the winning side (Blue) needs to make a rather
weird looking move as shown:
of taking the obvious move of moving its car off the board to the
right, the only winning move is to move downward. This forces red
to take its only remaining move and ensures the blue car to the
left will be able to make it off the board before the red cars leave.
