Why don't you throw coins into wells and make wishes?

My friend and I play a game in which we take turns placing identical coins on a circular table one at a time.

  • I place the first coin on the empty table.
  • The coins are placed flat on the table. They cannot overlap or go over the edge of the table.
  • The person who places the last coin on the table wins.

Which player can always win if they play optimally?
