Problem 4
Let be a positive integer. Two players and play a game on an infinite grid of regular hexagons. Initially all the grid cells are empty. Then the players alternately take turns with moving first. In his move, may choose two adjacent hexagons in the grid which are empty and place a counter in both of them. In his move, may choose any counter on the board and remove it. If at any time there are consecutive grid cells in a line all of which contain a counter, wins. Find the minimum value of for which cannot win in a finite number of moves, or prove that no such minimum value exists.
