# May the odds be ever in your favor.

Mechanics
You should have three (3) official coins.
Get yourself a partner. He/she is your opponent.
When the game starts, you must battle against your
opponent through rock-paper-scissors (also known as
jack-en-poy).
For every loss, you must give a coin to the other. For
every win, you must accept a coin from him/her. You
must continue the battle until one of you has no more
coins to give.
When you garnered all the coins of your opponent,
proceed to battle against the other players.
The lone winner shall be declared as the Victor.
Happy Hunger Games! And may the odds be ever in

Identification Cards
The manager of a department store chain
wishes to make four-digit identifcation
cards for her employees. How many
different cards can be made if she uses
the digits 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 and
repetitions are permitted?

Identification Cards
Since there are 4 spaces to fll on each card
and there are 6 choices for each space, the
total number of cards that can be made is
6 6 6 6 = 1,296
