'Approaching Midnight the Ultimate' printed from http://nrich.maths.org/
What would happen if we introduced further complexity to the Approaching Midnight game
, such as players get to pick which steps they use from a pool and then that step cannot be used again? Would this make a good game?
You may like to explore this idea or one of your own.

2D – could you play a version of the game going down a staircase rather than on a straight line?
Try playing a sequence of games with different start times (pre-declared) and the loser of each round gets to pick who goes first in the next round.
A random number is added to the step that you choose.
