OK, so the back story for this is me and my friend often decide things on a quick game of rock paper scissors. I think on this occasion it was for who would get up and answer the door when the pizza came. The point is, on this occasion, we drew 17 times in a row before we broke the dead lock.
How do I find the odds of drawing n games of rock, paper, scissors?
We were playing the normal rules of rock, paper, scissors and, for arguments sake, there were no tactics or mind games going on - just random choices by both my friend and I (though I think some kind of subconscious thing must have been at play because my gut tells me the odds of this are astronomical).
