On Friday I posed this puzzle…
John and Joan decide to play several games of cards, with a stake of £1 per game. After several games John has won three games and Joan has won £3. How many games did the two of them play?
If you haven’t tried to solve it, have a go now. For everyone else the answer is after the break.
The two of them played nine games.
