The Oddball Game
Oddball is a game which begins with 15 balls. The object of the game is
to leave only one ball at the end of your last turn. Each player can
remove 1 or 2 balls on each of their turns. The player who leaves the
last ball for his opponent is the winner. You must always take the first
turn then select "YOUR TURN" to indicate that your turn is over and
you are passing play to your opponent (the computer).
