We start by exploring and analyzing the various aspects of Penney’s game, examining its possible outcomes as well as its fairness (or lack thereof). In search of a fairer game, we create many variations of the original Penney’s game by altering its rules. Specifically, we introduce the Head-Start Penney’s game, the Post-a-Bobalyptic Penney’s game, the Second-Occurrence Penney’s game, the Two-Coin game, the No-Flippancy game, and the Blended game. We then analyze each of these games and the odds of winning for both players.
