The Devil says that if you beat him at quarter placement game you can go to heaven. The rules of the game are this:
There is a large circular table. You and the devil each have an unlimited number of quarters. You take turns placing the quarters on the table. The quarters must be laid flat on the table, they cannot hang off the edges, they cannot overlap, but they may touch. A player loses when he cannot make a legal play (i.e. when it is a player's turn, and there is not enough room on the table for them to play another quarter).
The devil plays first, and you realize that you will lose.
What was the devil's first play, and what is his unbeatable strategy?
Edit: Oh god, I forgot to put some important rules, let me fix that.
so im sure this isn't right, but givin the stipulations in the rules of this game my best bet would be :
