|A two-player game where the players alternate marking squares in a grid until there are none left. The first player chooses any single row or column and marks as many squares (at least one) as desired. The second player (the computer in this case) responds with a legal move, and play continues in this manner until no one can move. The player who moved last is the winner.|
