The Guess Your Card Game

In the Guess Your Card game each player draws three cards without looking at them. Each card has a number on it between one and nine. Then all of us place our cards on our heads so that we can only see our opponent’s cards but not the three cards we pulled. Our objective is to guess what cards we have ourselves. The first person to do this wins the game. Throughout game play, each player draws a question at random from a stack of questions. Then each player answers their particular questions based on the cards that they see from their opponents.
As previously stated each card has a number on it between one and nine. Andy’s cards are one, five and seven. Belle’s cards are five, four and seven. Carol has two, four, and six. We are solving for my cards which can be any number between one and nine.
The strategies used for solving the problem are inductive reasoning and deductive reasoning (process of elimination.) As questions are answered we are able to remove numbers from the one through nine answer set.
When Andy pulls the question card, “Do you see two (2) or more players whose cards sum to the same value? We can ignore his three cards (1, 5, and 7) because we know he could not see them, thus his sum of thirteen would not be one of the sums with the same value. Being able to see Belle’s cards (5, 4, and 7= 16) and Carol’s cards (2, 4, 6 = 12), I was able to conclude that my cars should equal twelve or sixteen. This is inductive reasoning. (a + b + c = 12 or 16)
Once Belle pulls the question card, “Of the five (5) odd numbers, how many different odd numbers do you see?” She answers, “All of them.” I was able to see Andy, Belle and Carol cards by using deductive and inductive reasoning along with the process of elimination I realized my first two cards were a three and a nine. I used a system equation to solve for my third and final…...

Guess That Card

...Guess Your Card Steven Colson Prof. Latriece Tanksley MAT-104 August 6, 2013 The name of this guessing game is Guess Your Card. The purpose of this project is to employ various logical methods to figure out which cards each player possesses. The game is completed and won by the first player to correctly state what card he or she has. In this particular game setup there are 4 players, Andy, Belle, Carol and Myself. Each player picks 3 cards without looking at them, cards ranging from 1 thru 9. Andy has the cards 1, 5, and 7. Belle has the cards 5, 4, and 7. Carol has the cards 2, 4, and 6. As of right know I do not know what numbers I have in my possession. Andy draws the question card, “Do you see two (2) or more players whose cards sum to the same value?” He answers, “Yes.” Next Belle draws the question card, “Of the five (5) odd numbers, how many different odd numbers do you see?” She answers, “All of them.” Andy suddenly speaks up. "I know what I have," he says. "I have a 1, a 5, and a 7." To figure out what numbers I have in my possession, I will use the process of elimination. I know the numbers of the other players, and information given by the other players I can solve the answer of what are my card numbers. To first solve this problem, I remember that Andy said that he saw two (2) or more players whose cards sum to the same value. So knowing this I know that 2 of the players’ numbers will add up to the same sum. So I add both Belle and Carol card numbers......

Guess Your Card

...Logic Application: Guess Your Card Jeffrey Self Professor Mune Lokesh Math 104 Algebra With Applications 19 June 2013 In my scenario I am sitting around the kitchen table with three friends and we decide to play the game Guess Your Card. My friends explain to me that in this game each of us in turn will blindly draw three cards from a partial deck of cards. This deck has had all cards above 9 removed, and for this game’s purposes aces are only equal to 1. Without looking at my cards I am to place them facing out on my forehead so the other players can clearly see the cards. Each of the other players is to do the same. The object of the game is to guess which cards you have on your own head using logic to solve the problem. Players draw question cards that reveal information about player cards, and the first to guess their cards based on the information revealed wins the game. My brother Andy has the cards 1, 5, and 7 showing on his forehead. His wife Belle has 5, 4, and 7. My girlfriend Carol has the cards 2, 4, and 6. Andy is selected to draw the first question card, and it asks if he sees two or more players who’s cards sum to the same value. Andy answers affirmatively. With this information I know that I must have cards that equal either 12 or 16. I know this because Belle’s cards sum to 16 and Carol’s cards sum to 12. Since Andy sees two of us with cars of the same value I am able to confirm that my sum must match either Belle’s or Carol’s. At this point none of us...

Histology Game

...hisMelissa Rios AP1 – Monday Morning Due April 6, 2015 Unit 3 Assignment 1 Game Instructions I decided to make a matching game called “What and Where? Histology Edition”. The game includes 27 picture cards and 27 word cards, totaling 54 cards, similar to a deck of cards. The 27 picture cards include all the tissues including skeletal, muscle, epithelium, cardiac, etc. The word cards ask “What” (what is the tissue) and “Where” (where is it located). The cards with the pictures of the tissues are laid out on the ground to see, as well as the word cards. All the cards (54) are scattered on the ground, completely out of order. The point of the game is to match the card with its picture. For example, Simple Squamous Epithelium is the WHAT and the skin is the WHERE. A picture of this tissue is found on the picture card, with the highlighted portion to identify. The object of the game is to match as many picture cards with word cards. The person with the most matching cards wins the game. Some cards contain extra credit questions, which allows one extra point for guessing it correctly the first time (no points for each additional attempted time). Each person takes one turn before returning to the original player. If the person matches the picture card with a word card, they gain a point. If they pick 2 cards and they don’t match, they neither gain nor loose points and have to put the card back on the ground and the next person goes. Even if someone gets it right, they......

When Is a Game No Longer a Game

...When is a Game No Longer a Game? Joel AJ Parker Northwood University Video games are becoming a huge part of a person’s life nowadays, especially children. It is no longer the world of board and card games. Many people would argue that video games do not allow a person to use their imagination. However, Will Wright would beg to differ. Wright believes that video games now allow a person to use their imagination to create their own scenarios and customize a “new life” within a game. However, I believe that he would agree that the video game world could be evolving to a point where they are no longer making “games”. There is a controversial online “game” that has the title of Second Life. Some might ask when a game stops being a game? What is the limit for reality in a video game or is there even a limit? There is a certain limit to the reality of a video game; it should no longer be a video game when a person can consider it their second life. Second Life is a computer game that is a virtual world. It allows the gamer to enter a world and design an avatar for the “game’s” virtual world. The game allows players to purchase land, property, cars, and clothing as well as other real life amenities. It is unlike other virtual worlds because it allows for the player to profit from the game; it seems to take over their actual life. Second Life allows the player to convert their “Linden Dollars” into cash via a PayPal account. They are allowed to sell their creations in the......

... Issue  1,  pp.122-­‐128,  2013 THE IMPACT OF VIDEO GAMES ON STUDENT GPA, STUDY HABITS, AND TIME MANAGEMENT SKILLS: WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL? Jordan Weaver, Walsh University, Philip Kim, Walsh University, Richard L. Metzer, Robert Morris University, Julie M. Szendrey, Walsh University, ABSTRACT Playing video games has become one of the largest leisure activities in the world. This study examines the effects video games have on college students, their grade point averages, time management, and study habits. Existing literature has linked video game usage as being negatively correlated with each of these three variables. This research, using a sample of the undergraduate student population at a private university in northeast Ohio, found a statistically significant correlation between video game usage and grade point average. Statistically significant relationships were not found between video game usage and the variables of time management skills or study habits. It is important that college students are aware of these possible negative effects of video game usage on their academic performance. This research can serve as a foundation for future research on the impact of video game playing and student performance.

Octopus Card

...Keywords: smart card, transportation, payment system, technology diffusion, Octopus, Hong Kong A b s t r a c t Although debit/cash cards based on smart card technology promised to bring forth the end of loose change, very few managed to gain critical mass or come close to totally eliminating coins including those supported by major credit card operators (e.g., Visa Cash and Mondex). In this paper, we discuss a specific system – Octopus – which not only gained momentum among the passenger transportation industry in Hong Kong, but also expanded into other payment channels such as fast food outlets and snack machines. We examine the factors why Octopus has been successful despite most micro-payment systems failing to gain critical mass let alone expand their customer base. Finally, we conclude that convenience factors, a specific set of societal factors and its management strategy to expand from a captive market towards a generic micro-payment system had been instrumental to the growth of this e-payment system.

The Game of Nim

...The Game of NIM Brandy Perdue, Ashley Howell, Arnitra Harris Math 213: Math for Elementary Educators January 18, 2016 Rachel Tomor The Game of NIM The game of NIM is a game of logic and strategy in which two players alternate in choosing an element to remove from the predetermined set. The game is concluded in these situations when the goal has been reached. To this game there are different strategies that may be employed. Game 6a In this game the rules were to only add the numbers 1 or 2 until the number 21 was reached. This game was difficult to gauge with it being the first played. Two out of three on our team began with random guessing. Those same two, when nearing the end, tried to take it slow so that it would work in their favor, however, both lost. The strategy of the other team member was to keep the result of their move as an odd number. That member lost the game as well. Game 6b The rules for this game were to add the numbers1, 2, 3 or 4 until the goal of 104 was reached. Realizing that this game had the potential to drag on, all team members chose to start by adding the highest number allowed. In doing this, two out of three members experienced a win. Game 6d Game 6D we were only allowed to subtract the numbers 1 or 2 and the loser was the first to go into negative numbers. All there members were winners in this game. There were two strategies used to win this game. One was to subtract and keep an......

Credit Cards

...Final Draft Although there are many advantages of possessing credit cards, most Americans should not use them; because they do not use them properly to where they become liable or subject to overwhelming debt, which could damage their credit history. Personal credit card debt has doubled in the past four years and personal bankruptcies are at the highest ever, and still more Americans are spending money that they do not have. Credit cards allow and encourage individuals to buy more than budgeted, and this is obviously a situation, which is best to avoid. Knowing when it is a bad idea to use a credit card can help you to avoid adding debt to your credit card. It is no doubt that the use of credit cards have eased the rate in which people obtain goods and services, but the use of credit cards have done more damage to the finances of Americans credit card users than good. Credit cards have become a problem for most American credit card users and there are even cases that some Americans have committed suicide because of the heavy debts he or she owes the credit card companies. Should Americans continue using credit cards? The answer is definitely no as the detriment that comes with using credit cards outweighs the benefits. Credit cards are a huge convenience in everyday life, yet most people are irresponsible when using them. The convenience of possessing credit cards increase the risk of overspending because people can convince themselves to spend more than what......

Second Guessing Second Life

...Second Guessing Second Life We have been deluged recently with stories about the amazing virtual world of Second Life and the brave opportunities it creates for brands. It is hard to believe, but it has been little more than a year since the first major brand, US retailer American Apparel, opened its doors for virtual business on the site. The store sold virtual American Apparel clothing designed to be worn by the avatars that users create to populate Second Life. American Apparel was soon joined by other brands. In October 2006, Starwood, the owner of hotel brands such as Westin and Sheraton, premiered its Aloft hotel brand on Second Life. Starwood saw its virtual hotel as a way of generating early customer insights about its venture long before any of the hotels opened. A month later, Pontiac, the US car-maker, launched Motorati Island. According to Mark-Hans Richer, marketing director at Pontiac, it was designed to 'empower the car community in Second Life and develop with them in a unique and meaningful manner'. From April, Second Life boasted the ultimate marketing patronage when Coke launched a 'virtual thirst pavilion', where visitors could compete to create a virtual vending machine selling not Coke, but, according to the firm's website, 'the essence of Coca-Cola: refreshment, joy, unity, experience'. It all sounds pretty amazing, until you visit Second Life. Having spent last weekend walking around its virtual universe, I have to report that the......

...The Video Game Industry An Industry Analysis, from a VC Perspective Nik Shah T’05 MBA Fellows Project March 11, 2005 Hanover, NH The Video Game Industry An Industry Analysis, from a VC Perspective Authors: Nik Shah Tuck Class of 2005 Charles Haigh Tuck Class of 2005 • The video game industry is poised for significant growth, but many sectors have already matured. Video games are a large and growing market. However, within it, there are only selected portions that contain venture capital investment opportunities. Our analysis highlights these sectors, which are interesting for reasons including significant technological change, high growth rates, new product development and lack of a clear market leader. The opportunity lies in non-core products and services. We believe that the core hardware and game software markets are fairly mature and require intensive capital investment and strong technology knowledge for success. The best markets for investment are those that provide valuable new products and services to game developers, publishers and gamers themselves. These are the areas that will build out the industry as it undergoes significant growth. • A Quick Snapshot of Our Identified Areas of Interest • Online Games and Platforms. Few online games have historically been venture funded and most are subject to the same “hit or miss” market adoption as console games, but as this segment grows, an......
