We say that a player can force an outcome in a 2 player game if they can always achieve that outcome no matter what their opponent does.  For example, the first player in a game of connect 4 can force a win, and both players in a game of tic-tac-toe can force a draw. 

 

We will play some 2 player games, including a non-random poker variant, and try to determine which players could force a win or a draw.  I'm pretty sure no one will have played these before so it will be new and exciting for everyone!
