Abstract

In many sports games, we would use a coin or the game of scissors-paper-stone to decide which side will begin first. We consider the game of scissors-paper-stone when two teams are composed of N respectively. We continue the game of scissors-paper-stone until the winner of the two team is decided. Using sample spaces and enumerating the elements we calculated the mean number of the game when N = 1, N = 2 and N = 3. In case of N = 1 and N = 2, we simulate the game and find the mean and variance when the repetition number n = 20; 30; 50; 100; 150; 200.
