0:00 Second day, is we're going to write
0:01 standard Rock, Paper, Scissors.
0:03 And you're going to model this with classes.
0:05 There's going to be a roll and the roll has a name.
0:09 It knows what rolls defeat it.
0:12 And, alright, so you store the name
0:17 that other rolls, that the names of the rolls that you
0:20 can defeat as a roll and the rolls that defeat you.
0:24 Also, we have player concept.
0:26 And the player is really just going to have a name.
0:27 So it says, player Sarah rolls this.
0:32 Player Computer rolls that, and so on.
0:34 Alright, so nothing major there.
0:35 You could also keep a history of the rolls.
0:38 You could show like, sort of replay the game if you wanted,
0:41 and each player could remember what they played
0:43 at each stage, that'd be fun.
0:45 And then the basic program flow looks like this.
0:47 This is not perfectly exactly what you necessarily need.
0:50 It's not totally implemented but, we're going to
0:52 print out the header, we're going to initialize the game here
0:55 by getting the various rolls, in this case
0:58 there's only the three: Rock, Paper, Scissors.
1:00 And then we're going to get the name of the player,
1:03 Add the computer and then we'll have an automatic player
1:06 here, and then we're going to run this little game loop,
1:08 by passing them off.
1:09 And the game loopers need to go round-and-round,
1:11 until somebody has won.
1:13 We'll go around three times, and basically
1:15 just have the computer randomly roll.
1:18 And then have the real player ask them what they
1:20 want to roll, Rock, Paper, Scissors,
1:21 and then have them do that roll correctly.
1:24 And then finally, you can just sort of do this comparison.
1:26 Does the one roll defeat the other?
1:28 I don't know, right?
1:29 And then just do a little output here,
1:31 and increment the count so that you'll know,
1:33 like you just played best of three.
1:35 So you'll know who won, figure out who won and then
1:37 print out so-and-so won 2 to 1 or
1:41 3 to 0 or something like that.
1:45 If you get a tie somewhere in the middle,
1:46 this doesn't work so, you know,
1:48 maybe once you get it working, not considering ties,
1:51 then come back and address the possibility
1:53 there might be ties.
