Let there be a pile of $2018$ chips in the center of a table. Suppose there are two players who could alternately remove one, two or three chips from the pile. At least one chip must be removed, but no more than three chips can be removed in a single move. The player that removes the last chip wins. Does the first player (the player who starts playing the game) have a winning strategy in this game, that is, whatever moves his opponent makes, he can always make his moves in a certain way ensuring his win? Justify your answer.
