Abstract

Cylinder-Infinite-Connect-Four is Connect-Four played on a cylindrical square grid board with infinite row height and columns that cycle about its width. In previous work, the first player's cannot-lose strategies have been discovered for all widths except 2 and 6, and the second player's cannot-lose strategies have been discovered with all widths except 6 and 11. In this paper, we show the first player's cannot-lose strategies for widths 2 and 6.
