Rock Paper Scissor Tour

I saw this game on Women's Tennis Forum and thought it would work on MTF.

1.Sign-Up with your player in top 200.

2.Send Points! Make this an exciting game by putting effort to send.

In a game game you have 3 sets (5 for Slams), and each set will have 13 games for each set; these 13 games will consist of (4) scissors, (4) papers, (4) rocks, and a certain amount of aces...

To calculate your amount of aces available per set you-
1. Have a favorite surface based on your player (e.g. if you player is Federer then you will have 3 for Grass, 2 for Hard and 1 for Clay.
2. And you earn extra aces if you win titles on the surface your playing on (4 for slam, 3 for masters, 2 for 500 and 1 for 250) these extra aces can be used in any set and expire after a year.

S beats P
P beats R
R beats S
A beats S, P, & R
In the event of a tie, there will be a cointoss.

The winner is the best of 3 sets (5 for Slams).

Arrange your scissors paper rocks for each set.
Your points should look something like this:

Novak Djokovic
Set 1: a-s-s-a-p-r-p-r-a-s-r-p-s
Set 2: s-r-p-r-a-s-p-a-s-r-p-a-r
Set 3: r-a-s-p-p-a-s-r-s-p-a-s-r

Roger Federer
Set 1: r-a-p-a-r-s-r-s-p-s-p-r-p
Set 2: r-p-p-s-p-a-s-s-r-s-a-r-r
Set 3: a-s-p-s-r-s-p-a-r-p-r-s-p
(Hard Court Match)

Set 1: 6-1 Djokovic
Set 2: 6-4 Federer
Set 3: 6-4 Djokovic
Final Score: Djokovic Wins 6-1 4-6 6-4

The calender will resemble the ATP Tour.

If your interested in playing please say in this thread and any suggestions are welcome.

Doesn't float my boat at all.

I think there are enough games on MTF to keep me entertained

Re: Rock Paper Scissor Tour

I like the idea, however it really sounds complicated. I thought the same thing about TT and waited a year after I discovered MTF to try, so maybe in a month or so I'll try it.

Horacio Zeballos - Maximo Gonzalez - Guido Pella - Carlos Berlocq - Diego Schwartzman - Facundo Bagnis - all the other Argentinos

Re: Rock Paper Scissor Tour

This has very little to do with tennis, but good luck anyway.
