For each of these possibilities there are 3 possibilities for game 2, and thus there are $3 \times 3 = 3^2$ possibilities for the first two games. You can list them
For each of the nine possibilities for the first two games there are 3 possibilities for game 3. Hence there are $3 \times 3 \times 3 = 3^3$ possibilities for the first 3 games. Again you can list them if you want
Do you see now the number of possibilities for 13 games? Penny
