I don't understand how the game works:
- is k a number given, e.g. one can take 100-k stones, the first who exceeds this
range, looses - or the last who is within the range wins?
- or is it that the person who can't take the last k <= 15 stones wins?
- or anything other?

a hint to optimize is:
1. a starts with a number z
2. b will add 1+x (that is x is in range [0..15])
3. a will now add 15-x
--> step 2 and 3 can be controlled by a to generate 16, except when b chooses to pick an 8 (x=7)
--> based on that one can optimize it, but in an interview? ... one need to think a while about it, and that's not yet the complete coded solution
