Scripting Game Event #3

The next Scripting Game is sure to be a great time.  The goal of this scripting game is to learn how to create scripts and functions.

You will create a script that can play Rock, Paper, Scissors against other scripts.  In a nutshell, your script will receive information about the state of the game, and it will return a single string (either rock, paper, or scissors) to indicate which move to make next.

The beginner category will be provided with script template files about a week before the event.  Your job will be to fill in the missing parts.  The advanced category won't receive script details until the event itself.

This time, your script will not be judged by people - instead your script will literally compete against the other scripts in an automated Rock, Paper, Scissors tournament.  Winners from each category will be able to select from valuable prizes from our swag sponsors.

Bring your laptop and join in the fun!

    The exercise was fun, attendance was a bit low to foster a lot of competition.
