    Rock, Paper, Scissors

    Hello everyone
    I recently found a Computer opponent for this game
    http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/s...-scissors.html
    What do you think? Your "highscore"?

    So far I'm 5-15-15 on the veteran difficulty...apparently I'm rather predictable in my choices...

    Edit: 100 rounds down: 16-39-45

    I started playing veteran and realized just how well it was able to predict my moves... so I made a gut reaction, stopped, and assumed the computer would assume what I was about to do so I could fight back and brought my score up 15-10-15. Pretty interesting game.

    Versus a human being I usually always go with rock.

    Because we do full motions as if striking with a hammer while chanting "Rock, paper, scissors", and during the last stroke where you present your choice many already formed, for instance, paper on the way down. If I take note of it, I then unfold my fist to scissors just as we finish.

    Awesome game did 160-170 rounds on normal and had a 46% loss ratio something like 58/51/64

    An interesting game. But it seems that a human is better able to predict the machine after a period of observation, than the machine predicting a person. After a while the machine is rather obvious.
