"I picked this idea up, like so many things, from Dan Meyer. He claims that it’s one of those games–like chess or mancala–that just has always existed.
My students have become enamored with the game, which we’ve dubbed “Lone Wolfs.” It’s an unintentionally awesome play on words spoken by a student earlier this year (“We’re just two lone wolfs”) The time spent trying to understand whether that was poetry or paltry grammer was longer than you’d expect.

Choose a positive integer
You lose if you choose the same number as someone else
Lowest number wins"
