  • Welcome back to Game On, I'm Tom Scott.

  • I'm David Bodycombe.

  • And today we have our first elimination match.

  • One of these players is going to be out of the competition.

  • What's the game?

  • It's a number war and it's called Black Hole.

  • They're going to take turns placing counters,

  • 1 then 2 then 3, all the way down to 10.

  • At the end of the game there'll be one place left on the board,

  • that is the Black Hole,

  • which sucks in all the numbers around it.

  • So whoever has the least numbers pulled in is going to be the winner.

  • Simple as that.

  • All right. Let's see how they do.

  • Yeah, I think I'll go first. All right.

  • I haven't worked out whether it's advantageous or not to go first.

  • See, I don't have any strategy, so...

  • You'd think that the person who's going first

  • is going to have the advantage

  • but, of course, when they place their last counter,

  • the other person will have a choice of two spaces left.

  • So they get the last decision if they go second.

  • Yeah. So you have to make sure that if you're playing first,

  • the two spaces you leave,

  • both of them are winning positions for you.

  • And that can be quite difficult.

  • Oh! Okay.

  • Would you favour the mathematician or the video gamer here?

  • I think the video gamer, in a way,

  • because I think they're going to have to think a few more moves ahead...

  • My strategy is winging it.

  • Winging it, I wouldn't recommend as a strategy!

  • I think I would probably mirror for a while.

  • Ah, mirroring! What a great strategy.

  • Throws your opponents off, that does.

  • D'you know what else throws people off?!

  • What, muttering narration?

  • Maybe!

  • Yeah, how do you think we felt?

  • Was mirroring a good idea?

  • It's not a bad idea.

  • I wouldn't have put that in the corner there,

  • because there's only two spaces where the black hole could be in the corners,

  • but it's not a bad idea to sort-of go mano-a-mano for the first few steps.

  • Certainly, you'd think low numbers in the middle of the board makes more sense

  • because they have more spaces around it

  • which are more opportunity for the black hole to be near there

  • so pack the middle of the board with the lower numbers.

  • This is tough. This is tough.

  • Emma's got the face of concentration on her.

  • Shut up(!)

  • (Good move.)

  • So at this point, I would be looking at

  • the possible places that are going to be left

  • and calculating the numbers around them.

  • Yeah, I mean it's certainly quite interesting

  • how the spaces have got a bit compartmentalised there.

  • [inaudible]

  • So we're getting near the end now. That's happened really quickly.

  • I don't like Katie's position here,

  • because that run of blue pieces down the middle of the board,

  • it's quite exposed. There's lots of positions where

  • she's actually going to be losing.

  • I'm going to lose so much no matter what I do!

  • I feel like I've gone into this with the complete wrong strategy.

  • Of winging it.

  • So Emma clustering the numbers together means they're less vulnerable to the Black Hole.

  • Yes. Really, only that space next to the 7 and the 3 at the top corner

  • is her only worry there.

  • Really? Oh, yeah, you're right. Because all the others,

  • there are more numbers of Katie's next to them

  • or it's a draw in a couple of places.

  • Yeah, if she puts that 8 next to the 7 and the 3,

  • she's looking pretty golden at the moment.

  • Ohh! Oh...

  • Well, that's okay. She can touch them...

  • She's got to make sure that hole's filled in though.

  • Oh. Which... which Katie has just done for her!

  • Well, that's sensible play. Tucks another number away from the other places.

  • But Emma must fill in that space below the 7 and the 3 now.

  • Because that's her vulnerability?

  • That's her vulnerability right now. And then she should be...

  • (Emma's got this.)

  • I can actually feel my heart beating.

  • Yeah. I don't know why I care!

  • Now who's taking it seriously(?)

  • There's so many traps here.

  • See, I can't think ahead, I play chess, but

  • I can't think ahead in this.

  • And then it's basically her game?

  • It should be.

  • Ah! No, not there.

  • No! Because now you've got one space with her 7 and 3 and 9 around it,

  • and very little of Katie's.

  • No! No, no, no.

  • No no no, because now Emma's got a place to hide the 10!

  • Either of the two spaces that are left, Katie's 10 is now going to count.

  • There you are. Game over.

  • There it goes. Katie's got to put the 10 up there, and that's the game.

  • Well done Emma!

  • That is nerve-wracking!

  • Also, that is one of those games that is infinitely easier to play

  • on the sofa when you don't have to be in the moment.

  • People in the comments are going to be like,

  • "you should have done this!"

  • Yeah, seriously, I feel like I nearly screwed up with the 9.

  • I was like, "what have I done there?"

  • Hey, I won something!

  • So Emma lives to fight another day.

  • She's going to be in the playoffs in a couple of shows' time

  • but next up it is Steven vs Hannah, for a place in the final.

  • What's the game?

  • It's going to be a psychological war of bidding.

  • Oh, that's -- a psychological war against a magician?

  • That's going to be interesting.

  • [Translating these subtitles? Add your name here!]
