I could have sworn I had the link to my program in that last post.

I have seen a number of suggestions to win this game. The first thing I did was start finding winning patterns, such as when you have two rows to keep them even, or other patterns such as 1 2 3, 1 4 5, 2 4 6, etc. Eventually you can find enough of these to make a table of winning combinations. This works, but only for small games. The binary solution is the only truly unbeatable way to play no matter how many rows there are. Juan has the advantage of being able to calculate his moves with this method, so he will win as soon as you make one mistake.

I created a program that will solve any pearl game you can throw at it, with up to 5 rows of pearls. I tested it for about 17 levels of Pearls 3 before quitting. Of course, the game isn`t much fun anymore because you can`t lose. But it`s perfect if you just want revenge on Juan, or need a hint after you`ve gotten stuck at a certain level on Pearls 3. So check it out!

however- i will mention....if you play level three....where at times he will put down 15 or more marbles in the same row....you might hafta do quite a bit of math to solve it.

WARNING! SPOILER!...well....kind of.
If you still haven`t caught on to how to win, I`ll give a hint. The mathematics of how to solve this lies in binary code. yeah. that`s all i`m saying.

HAhA! I finally beat the bastard. Annoying as a motherF`er.

part 3 is the best, though.

This is odd, it doesn`t work every time for the second one. He acts differently sometimes.
Male 1,407
Part 2 is considerably harder, but I finally got it.
Male 21
It is possible......... its easy just begin it with taking 2 from the row of 3. Then leave him with 3,2,1. you can take it from there.

Male 263

Female 15
I`ve played that before. It took me a while to beat it, but now that I know how, it`s fun to frustrate people with it in real life.
Female 19
