Downfall (or Downspin/"New Downfall") is a two player game published in 1970 with perfect information.* The rules are quite simple and generally we play with ten disks each in the normal order.

I am interested to know if anyone has already solved this game (or a variant of it) to find out which player should win and what the best set of moves is.

Also - do different editions have different wheel configurations? From what I could find out they all had the same configuration.

* In practice, due to the design of the game then it can be hard to remember all the information. Also note that some variants have a randomised starting position or four players.
