Game 3: Kung Fu Masters
You are two kung fu masters who have met for the first time. Because of circumstances, you must fight to the death.
Take up a fighting stance, then meet each other’s eyes. Each of you must now play out the fight in your mind. Imagine what your opponent is going to do, how you counter, how they, in turn, counter you, and so on and so forth.
If you reach the conclusion that you will lose the fight, nod in acknowledgement of their superior skill and back down. You will spend your next 10 years training to defeat them. This is an honorable loss.
If you reach the conclusion that you will defeat them, strike now! As soon as you move to strike, they have the initiative and will defeat you. This is a dishonorable loss.
If you both back down at the same time, this is a friendship move. You will train together and become brothers-in-arms.
If you both strike at the same time, this is a mutual kill. Sad for you.
If one strikes and one yields simultaneously, the one who strikes is the winner, and must live with the regret of what they have done.
