If you've read my post about Getting paid to play games, then you must know how excited I was about Moola.com which is the first site (that I know of) who offers people money to play games.
Having played their games for a while now, I have figured out a strategy for playing one of their games named Ro-Sham-Bo-Fu which is an advanced version of rock,paper and scissors.
If you haven't played Ro-Sham-Bo-Fu before then I suggest you try it out first and then return here for your Ro-Sham-Bo-Fu strategy guide.
In each of the 6 rounds of the game you must choose either rock,paper or scissors. Rock loses to paper but beats scissors, Paper beats rock but loses to scissors and scissors beat paper but loses to rock. In each round the grandmaster offers you additional points for not choosing a specific selection (e.g rock) but what this means is that given that most players will want those additional points they are left only with 2 choices of which one always beats the other. My strategy for this is to choose that dominant option (in the case that rock is excluded, you should always choose scissors).
Let's take a look at a potential round where paper is the excluded option.
If paper is excluded then we are left with only rock and scissors of which rock always beats scissors. The wise choice would be to select rock anytime.
- If your opponent selects scissors then you win and gain 3 points while both of you get 2 points for not using paper.
- If your opponent selects rock then you have a tie and the points move to the next round.
- If your opponent selects paper the he wins the 3 points but you get 2 points for not using paper.
