Hint for Puzzle #10: Number Game Call Out 50
The player will win if he shouts out 50. We need to think under what circumstances within the rules of the game will allow him to shout out 50, as in what numbers being called out by the opponent will permit this. How he can force his opponent into that position.... and work backwards to the beginning to find out how the game must start for our player to win.
