The first.  Lots more options that way.

There is the possibility of AP (analysis paralysis) here, but in my
writeup I mention several possible simplifications, including: use 2
or even 1 pyramid each, not 3; win by getting just 1 piece to the end,
not all of them; have a timer, and if not done in time, a forced move
happens (higher die on your own most advanced piece, lower on on the
lowest opposing piece).
