Seemingly impossible, until you see Pearls before Swine II! where you can choose who goes first. The complexity is increased, as there are four rows rather than three rows in the first version. The rules remain the same.

Maddening to say the least. If you watch carefully how the genie plays during Swine II, you may be able to see the pattern or logic he uses to win.

I’m sure with some googling you can find the solution, if not I will post the answer here in a week or so.
