    Alright I find this situation pretty funny and VERY do able.

    1) Me and my friend decide that if we play each other and we play down Team Galactic's Wager we will go in the order Rock-paper-scizor over, and over. So that means 1st time we both play rock, 2nd time paper 3rd time scissors and repeat. This means this game can go on FOREVER. I don't think the judge can do anything about since well, this is possible to happen

    2)Someone vs Someone. Someone plays down TGW, but they keep tieing. And you know how the story goes.

    Discuss...

    1) you and your opponent get DQed

    2) tis extremely unlikely you will tie more than 10 times. if they kept tying beyond that, i would suspect something is up and DQ them.

    1) Thanks for telling the public, now judges will know to look out for you.

    2) Yeah... the most ties I've ever gotten is 5. It's unlikely.

    Then we can worry about it if it actually happens, which it won't.

    Same thing can happen for high roll to see who goes first.

    We'll cross that bridge if/when we come to it.

    We have ways to deal with people like you.........Muhuyahayaha


    On a serious note though....look at the floor rules. If you are "disruptive" to the event, you can be penalized or even DQ'd.

    eventually, one of you will forget the pattern. you are only human, not robots.

    So...if you keep going in a pattern, why don't you change the pattern and throw out what will beat the opponent?

    I think that the pattern would get fairly obvious after the first twenty throws or so.

    But this does make you think...

    What is the probability that a game of Rock-Paper-Scissors could last an entire one round?

    Assuming that each throw is just as likely as another, the chances of a tie are 1/3. If one game lasts five seconds and the round lasts twenty-five minutes, then:

    25minutes = 1500seconds = 300games

    (1/3)^(300)= My TI-83 says zero, but you know that it's slightly larger than that.

    I don't get it! Why can't people just play RPS without trying to cheat! Do you know how boring playing RPS for several minutes would be?! And someone would mess up and throw the wrong hand sign.

    Even if you wanted to tie at RPS everytime, I'm sure any reasonable Judge would see that you and your friend are both obviously conspiring to rig RPS to stall. Even then it's a matter of going into Sudden Death then presuming you're both tied with Prizes, which then might going into DQing both of you for disrupting the game.

    And imo, the odds of this happening between 2 random people are almost non-existent. 3-6 ties, maybe. But anything longer (like 10+), there's something fishy going on.

    Chuck Norris says fight your opponent to decide the TRUE victor of the battle!

    And doesn't POP BAN the right to wager/bet on the outcome of a game when TGW could very well decide it?

    Thats why they should roll a dice.

    As has been said in several other threads, dice rolling is NOT a good idea. It defeats the purpose. If the card was intended for dice rolling, it wouldve said that.
    There's some STRATEGY to RPS, thats why it has you play that.

    ...Not if you keep throwing "rock" every time. ;)

    Lawman said it just right, though: there are ways to deal with stuff like that...heeheehee.
