The contest is very simple.
All persons will play at the same time. Because my comments are on moderate, each person can comment on this post with their choice. All persons will have a chance to comment before I publish all results for each round. Your first choice will be the only one I will accept - subsequent choices in a particular round will be ignored. It might be possible to finish this in one round, or it may take several.
To repeat. You, the players, will write one word on a comment: say, "scissors." When all persons have written one word (or willingly bowed out), I will publish and declare the winners for that round. Remaining winners will then compete in following rounds, if these are needed.
The choice with the largest number of proponents will wipe out those one step down from that choice. Left over persons will survive, with the winners, to the next round.
Example: Three persons choose 'rock'; one person chooses 'scissors' and one person chooses 'paper.' In that round, rock destroys scissors, so that person is out. Both those who chose rock and that one who chose paper will survive to the next round.
If there the largest number occurs for two different choices, then the superior choice will destroy the other; left over persons will survive.
Example: Two persons choose 'rock' and two persons choose 'paper'; one person chooses 'scissors.' Paper will destroy rock, so those two persons are out; those choosing paper and scissors will survive to the next round.
If the largest group fails to kill anyone, then the second largest group will have considered to have killed all persons in the largest group.
Example: Four persons choose 'rock'; no one chooses 'scissors;' one person chooses 'paper.' In this round, the one person choosing paper destroys the four people choosing rock.
If all persons make the same choice, or if an equal number of players makes each of the three choices, then the round is void and repeated again.
Example: Everyone chooses 'rock.' The round is played over.
Example: With three persons left, one person each chooses 'rock,' 'scissors' and 'paper.' The round is played over.
If one person is chosen without having designated a second person, those still surviving will play for the second position.
If for some reason Alexis accidentally publishes some results too early, due to the nature of blogger, that round is void and will be played over.
Rounds are played until there is one final winner and one final loser. This may not be completed today. Please note, there is a hole in the middle of my day when I will be unavailable.
I will continue to publish comments which do not contain results. If I have missed something in my logic above, please inform me immediately, and I will rule.
