Game Theory and Rock-Paper-Scissors


This is an amusing infographic about some “strategies” for the game Rock-Paper-Scissors. 

http://flowingdata.com/2010/07/30/how-to-win-rock-paper-scissors-every-time/

Although this graphic is a bit facetious, the author points out that there can be some real psychology behind playing the game.

I always thought it would be fun to bulid a simple computer simulation of the game, program different “players” with different strategies, and then run a bunch of tournaments and see what happens.

Thanks to Calvin for pointing me to this!
