Game of Chips

Discrete Mathematics Level pending

Two players, A (first player) and B, take alternate turns in playing a game using 2016 chips as follows: the player whose turn it is, must remove \(s\) chips from the remaining pile of chips, where \(s \in \{2, 4, 5\}\). No one can skip a turn. The player who at some point is unable to make a move (cannot remove chips from the pile) loses the game. Who among the two players can force a win on this game?
