Where's the "strategy" then?

Are we just basically guessing 1, 2 or 3 then?
Suzi, here is the email sent to myself with the first ten answers. Please take a minute or two to read the scientific findings from the UK about this time honored game: pattern recognition, bluff and double bluff are all part of the suggested strategy.

To Win: Paper hides Rock; Scissors cuts Paper; Rock breaks Scissors. Here are some findings on strategy from the UK:

As the house, so to speak, I'll email the first ten picks to myself immediately after posting this thread and will post its date and time line with those picks here as soon as ten individual picks are posted (if there's interest, we'll repeat the routine). One point for your first correct pick, two for your second, three for your third, etc. Play as often as you wish taking turns.

Who will reign as King or Queen of the Paper, Rock, Scissors Game Hill during 2014? May the best strategist win. Enjoy.

But my point is that if the object is not to BEAT your choice with ours, then what IS the point? Kiki chose Rock for #2, which beat your choice Scissors, but you told him that Rock was the wrong choice for #2.

tl;dr version: If we're not trying to BEAT your choice, but only to GUESS your choice, then what is the freaking point here and what does strategy have to do with it?

Maybe you could address this now. Note: I don't need to see the OP again to understand your answer, as long as you understand my question.

You are suggesting people use a strategy of "bluff and double bluff" in their interactions with the content of an e-mail you have written to yourself?

Okay, Suzi. Your suggestion is far superior. In retrospect, mine was wrong.
We'll start fresh with Round #2; my picks are locked in a second email.
Thank you.

Please take a minute or two to read the scientific findings for topic interest sake if nothing else.

That article has convinced you that one can "bluff and double bluff" an inanimate object like a piece of paper with writing on it or a screen displaying text, neither of which can change itself and neither of which are capable of using a strategy of "bluff and double bluff"? This article has convinced you that this is possible [without redefining the words "bluff" and "double bluff"]? ðŸ˜›
