Oops, I forgot to remove the "by unconditional announcement" definition. There are probably many other errors, but here's an update that fixes that one: AI: 1 Co-authors: Aris, Jason Cobb Text: Enact a new power-0.5 rule titled "Clairvoyant Roshambo", with the following text. At every time, the Roshambo Wheel is set to exactly one of Rock, Paper or Scissors. When the Rules do not say that its value changes, it stays the same. If it would otherwise not be set to a value, it is set to Rock. Whenever a player has not done so in the past 4 days, e CAN Commune with the Wheel by announcement, specifying Rock, Paper or Scissors. A player CAN Reach into the Past by announcement at any time. If a player Communes the Wheel at a time T, and does not Reach into the Past in the four days following T, then at time T the value of the Roshambo Wheel is changed to the value e specified. Rock beats Scissors, Scissors beats Paper, and Paper beats Rock. Roshambo Score is an integer player switch. Once per Agoran week, each player CAN Play Roshambo by announcement, specifying Rock, Paper or Scissors, but only if e has not Communed with the Wheel in the past 4 days. When e does so: * If e specifies a value that beats the current value of the Roshambo Wheel, then 4 days later, eir Roshambo Score is increased by 1. * If e specifies a value that is beaten by the current value of the Roshambo Wheel, then 4 days later, eir Roshambo Score is decreased by 1. The Medium is an office, and the recordkeepor of Roshambo Score. A player with a Roshambo Score of at least 10 CAN Transcend Time by announcement. When e does so, e wins the game, and all instances of the Roshambo Score switch are flipped to 0. -- - Falsifian
