Approaching Midnight: What Next?

Clock face

If you have enjoyed Approaching Midnight then have a go at changing its settings (for example, change the start time, the time steps, who starts etc.) and see what happens. (You'll need to scroll down the interactive to see the 'Settings' button.)

Can you still find a winning strategy?

Here are some questions you might ask yourself:

  • If you are trying to win, does it matter whether you go first or second?
  • Does the start time affect who wins?
  • How does changing the smallest step affect my winning strategy?
