How to Beat Rock-Paper-Scissors – Improve Your Odds of Winning the Game.

Rock-Paper-Scissors is suppose to be a zero-sum hand game with a 1 in 3 chance of winning any given round, but is it really a game of chance?

The zero-sum game characterization is based on the assumption that the weapon (rock, paper or scissors) is chosen at random. Most real life experiments will show that, on average, players tend to chose each weapon about a third of the time.

How to Play and Win 2048 – Tips, Tricks and Online Game

2048 is a single-player puzzle game in which the objective is to obtain a 2048 tile. A 2048 tile is achieved by combining matching numbered tiles on a 4 by 4 grid.

There are 4 possible moves:
Left to Right” – Right arrow key.
Right to Left” – Left arrow key.
Top to Bottom” – Up arrow key.
Bottom to Top” – Down arrow key.
With every move a new tile (with a value of 2 or 4) randomly appear in an empty spot on the board.

Tiles slide as far as possible in the chosen direction until they are stopped by either another tile or the edge of the board. If two tiles of the same number collide while moving, they will merge into a single tile with their sum value – e.g.: 2 and 2 becomes 4, 4 and 4 becomes 8 and so forth.
The resulting tile cannot merge with another tile again in the same move.

The game is over when the board is full and there aren’t any possible moves left.

In order to reach the mythical 2048 tile, the player must play strategically and maintain enough room on the board to achieve the tile.
