Hi,

It occurred to me that we can reformulate the winning condition as follows: a player wins by connecting a set of three sides such that the shortest peripheral path covering these sides covers more than (n + 1)/2 sides, where n is the total number of sides.

Thus: nonagon -> 6 sides, heptagon -> 5 sides, pentagon -> 4 sides, triangle -> 3 sides.

This is similar to the winning conditions of Begird and Generalized Atoll.

Note too that 5-Y has a very easily stated win condition: connect any three sides, not all adjacent.

I thought this was called "Spanning-Y":

On a board of 2X+1 sides, form a group that skips less than X consecutive sides.


Or, "Free-Y":

On a board with 2X+1 edge cells, form a group that skips a maximum of X consecutive edge cells.



Free-Y is simply Odd-Y aka Spanning-Y taken to the logical extreme.
