It’s the classic Rock, Paper, Scissors (RPS) Game with a twist. We write programs to do our battling for us and there are two more added elements – Dynamite and Water Balloon.

  • Dynamite beats rock, paper, AND scissors
  • Water Balloon beats Dynamite

This will be my second year competing in this competition. Last year, I placed either 14 or 24. I don’t remember. And it doesn’t matter because I rummaged through my files and found the same bot and it came in 29th place. So, I have some work cut out for me.

Last year was the first time I ever messed with C# and AI. I’ve taken a few more programming classes since then and have learned a lot. So, I am much better prepared this time around.

You should participate also. And get a free t-shirt and stress ball from Microsoft while you’re at it. ;]

Good luck everybody!
