Pick 2 or 3

Players A and B are playing a game:

  • There are 29 pieces on a game board.
  • Players alternate turns, with player A starting.
  • Each turn, the player can pick 2 or 3 pieces.
  • The player who picks up the last piece on the board wins.
  • If only 1 piece is left, then no one can pick it up, and the game is tied.

Assuming that the players will play optimally, which player can confirm their victory?
