Sergei Bernstein and Nathan Benjamin brought back a variation of the “Rock, Paper, Scissors” game from the Mathcamp. They call it “Rock, Paper, Scissor.” In this variation one of the players is not allowed to play Scissors. The game ends as soon as someone wins a turn.
Can you suggest the best strategy for each player?
They also invented their own variation of the standard “Rock, Paper, Scissors.” In their version, players are not allowed to play the same thing twice in a row.
If there is a draw, then it will remain a draw forever. So the game ends when there is a draw. The winner is the person who has more points.
They didn’t invent a nice name for their game yet, so I am open to suggestions.Share:
