 Posted: Wed Sep 06, 2000 6:42 am    Post subject: 1 NINJA COMBAT This is a two player game similar to Rock, Scissors, Paper; you'll do well if you can guess what your opponent will do. The game can last for several rounds, so you'll have time to detect patterns in your opponent's player and take advantage of them, maybe. Each player represents a Ninja warrior with 25 strength at the beginning of the game. On each round the players simultaneously tell the referee how much strength to use in an attack on the other player. The strength used is permanently gone from the game. You can't use more strength than you have left and you don't have to use any if you don't want to. If one player uses more strength than the other, the player using the lesser amount must use three more to roll away from the attack. The first player who loses a round and doesn't have three strength left loses the game. If both players reach zero strength at the same time then the game is a draw. Sample game: code:``` 1> Player A uses 3, player B uses 2. Player B loses the round and 3 more strength for a total of 5. Strength remaining: A=22, B=20 2> Player A uses 3, player B uses 4. Player A loses the round and 3 more strength for a total of 6. Strength remaining: A=16, B=16 3> Player A uses 5, player B anticipates this and uses 0. Player B loses the round and 3 strength for a total of 3. Strength remaining: A=11, B=13 4> Player A uses 0, player B uses 2. Player A loses the round and 3 strength for a total of 3. Strength remaining: A=8, B=11 5> Player A uses 1, player B uses 1. Strength remaining: A=7, B=10 6> Player A uses 2, player B uses 1. Player B loses the round and 3 more strength for a total of 4. Strength remaining: A=5, B=6 7> Player A uses 3, player B uses 3. Strength remaining; A=2, B=3. 8> Player A uses 1, player B uses 3. Player A loses the round and can't pay the 3 extra strength. Player B wins. ``` The obvious strategy here is to win each round by a little or lose it by a lot. If you can detect a pattern in your opponent's play you can take advantage of it. Of course, your opponent might be setting you up for a sudden change of strategy. For face-to-face play a referee isn't need. Players can use pennies or Risk pieces for strength, hide the amount to use in a fist, and open them simultaneously. Kids can drag out their worthless pog collections and use those. I'll referee a game in this thread for the first two players who sign up. Post your intent to play here and email me your first round strength to use. Whenever both players' decisions are in I'll post the results of the round here. I check my email several times per day. If anyone else wants to referee a game in another thread please feel free to do so. Feel free to experiment with different rules if you like.
