I've always thought that the rock paper scissors programming contest hosted by bonanova was one of the funnest.
I've tried this contest before without much success here, but i would like to try one more time before giving up.
the goal is the following. write a program that plays rock paper scissors lizard spock against another such program.
each program will receive as input all it's previous moves, all opponents previous moves, and the round number. the only "strict" rule is no random functions. you are of course allowed to write pseudo random number generators if you really want,
but most code submissions should hopefully be deterministic.
if you aren't much of a programmer, you may submit to me your general idea and ill try to code it for you.
here would be some example programs:
if i == 0:
you may of course write as complicated or as simple programs as you desire. may the best coder win!
