    Default Rock-Paper-Scissors Season 5

    Welcome back to the fifth iteration of

    ROCK-PAPER-SCISSORS


    After banjo's great resurrection of the game we decided that's now my turn to host it again. For this I will blatantly steal most parts of banjo's last introduction post so if you find any mistakes... they are his, not mine

    The game is based around this snazzy little table:

    Spoiler
    Show




    Basic rules:
    Each round you will be pitted against another player in a four action game of the expanded rock-paper-scissors game pictured above. You PM me with your four choices, and your opponent will do the same. As narrator, I will work out the results and determine the victor.

    Each round will last minimum 48 hours. You can PM me actions rounds in advance if you want, so that you donít miss anything. Otherwise, you will automatically lose the missed round 4-0, and any bets placed on you will be cancelled. the match itself will be decided by dice and the bets are valid. This rule is inserted to avoid any disadvantages for the remaining players who actively fought a player who becomes inactive after a while.

    If you win a game you score three points, one point for a draw, and nothing for a loss. Everyone will play each other once, a league table will be kept, and at the end there will obviously be a winner! I try to draw a trophy for the winner but beware, I can't compete with banjo in this department.

    Betting:
    Yes, I mentioned betting earlier, I guess itís about time I explained it. Each player (and any lurkers not actively participating but wanting to bet) have 10gp to spend each round by betting on the outcomes of matches. Gp cannot be saved, so use the full 10 each round or the rest will be wasted.

    Players can bet on the following things, with the gp reward for a successful bet shown:

    Bet on a player to win Ė 2:1
    Bet on a match to end in a draw Ė 3:1
    Bet on a player to win by a specific scoreline Ė 5:1


    Accumulator - Make two or more bets as an accumulator to multiply your winnings, but every bet needs to succeed else you lose out.

    Don't hesitate to PM me if you have questions about the rules!

    Hall of Fame:
    Winner of RPS Season 1: Yspoch
    Winner of RPS Season 2: Someonenonotyou
    Winner of RPS Season 3: Calar
    Winner of RPS Season 4: Dallas-Dakota


    So, if you are interested, intrigued, or just bored, sign up to this immensely tactical game of skill and brainpower, as itís not all down to luck, honestly.

    Sign up ends on Monday, 17th March, or whenever we have a decent number of players.

    Cuthalion
    Dallas-Dakota
    Sabeki

    Wow... changed the end of sign-ups to next Wednesday. But I'm tinkering we could begin on Moday with this player base already. We have 11 players already, one or three more... I'll change it to Monday.

    What would the rate be on me betting in the first round that I'm going to win the tournament again?

    Most likely I'l end up in last place.

    This isn't random, it's strategy, so the odds might not be quite like that.

    Well, I managed with total randomness (I used Invisible Castle for my actions) 8 draws, 2 wins and one defeat so... it's close to random

    Anyway, we are 13 people now, if there is an uneven number at the begin of the game Dicey McRandom will play against you lot.

    It is an option, I'll take the bet with 1:13, means you get 130 gp if you win the tournament.

    This bet I don't know how to handle... the chance for you winning is nearly 1.

    No, please take an other option, I don't take this bet.

    10 gold on Dicey McRandom winning the entire tournament. Unless he's ineligible for such a win. In which case, I'll put it on myself instead just so I can be double-let down.
