What is Rock Paper Scissors?
Players challenge each other to a game, which is played until a winner is decided. Players select to throw either a rock (represented by a closed fist ), paper (represented by a flat hand ), or scissors (represented by a hand with two fingers extended ).
If the two players throw the same item, the throw is a draw, the game continues and the players throw again. If the two players throw different items, one of the players will win and the game ends.
Rock will beat Scissors (a rock can smash a pair of scissors).
Paper will beat Rock (paper can wrap up a rock).
Scissors will beat Paper (scissors can cut paper in half).
All players start at Level 1. Players move up the levels by winning games in succession. The winner of a game proceeds to the next level, while the loser returns to Level 1.
The winner of a game at Level 10 will win 1000 RewardsCentral reward points.
In simple terms, to win 1000 RewardsCentral points, you must win 10 games in a row.
What's the difference between a throw, a game, a level, and a tournament?
A throw is a single challenge between two players. For example, Player 1 is playing against Player 2. Player 1 chooses Rock and Player 2 chooses Rock. That would be 1 throw, and in this case, the throw is a draw.
You can think of it like this: you "throw" your selection to the opponent. Eg. you "throw" a rock.
A game is played until there is a winner. So if the first throw is a draw, the same players will play a second throw, and a third, until a winner is decided.
Most games are decided within one or two throws. You have to make selections for 8 throws in case your next game lasts for 8 throws.
If throw 8 of a game is a draw, both players lose (there's about a 0.01% chance of this happening).
Your level is your overall standing in the tournament. You start at Level 1, and you have to pay 1 game token to play the game at Level 1. If you win a game you proceed to the next level, with a free pass to play the next game (no game token required). From Level 5 and above, you have the chance to win points. If you are on Level 10 and you win a game, you win the grand prize!
If at any time you lose a game, you are out of the tournament, and you will have to pay another game token to play again.
You will only be challenging players on the same level as you.
A tournament is a succession of winning games against many different opponents. If you lose a game, then you are out of the tournament. If you win a game, you move up a level and you are still in the running for the tournament prize.
How do I play the game?

Do I get any points at all if I don't get to Level 10?
