Rough, Initial draft at:
http://icehousegames.org/wiki/?title=RockPaperPyramid

`Rock, Paper, Pyramids! is a 3 person challenge game that uses 3 colors x 3
``stacks (total of 9 stacks)
`
Its sort of a multi-dimensional rock-paper-scissors.

`Each person gets a single stack of each color and puts it into a hidden
``pool.
`
Our example will use Black, White and Crystal or (B)(W)(C).
Version 1 (Classic) lasts 9 rounds.

`Each round a player takes one piece from their pool and hides it in thier
``hand.
`
The player then puts their hand/fist out towards the other two players.
When all players have their hands out, everyone reveals simultaneously.
Black captures White. White captures Crystal. Crystal captures Black.

`Large(3pt) captures Medium(2pt) Medium(2pt) captures Small(1pt) Small(1pt)
``capture Large(3pt)
`

`When there is a conflict (Large Black vs. Small White), then the result is
``Null or Neutral.
`
The simplified table of results is as follows.
Where color X would capture color Y
X3 X2 X1 Y3 Y2 Y1
=== === == == == ==
X3 N > < > > N
X2 < N > N > >
X1 > < N > N >

`When comparing all three, this gives five or six possible results depending
``on how you look at it.
`

`In this chart, A is relative. The easy way to calculate the winner is to
``find one piece that is not captured. If all pieces are captured (Standoff),
``the then no one wins. From the piece that is not captured, figure out the
``order of capture.
`
Full Sweep A>B,C A gets B&C
A captures both B and C
Line Sweep A>B, B>C A gets B&C
A captures B, B captures C
Standoff A>B>C>A Null
A captures B who captures C who captures A
Wishbone A>B,C>B, A~C Null
Both A&C capture C, but A to C is Null
Solo, Single A>B,C>0 A gets B
A captuers B, but C captures nothing
Washout A>0,B>0,C>0 Null
No one captures
During the round, compare results.
Variable rule (working on):

`Either the winner takes only the captured pieces, putting thier own piece in
``the discard (as above)
`
or Winner keeps all pieces (A could get both A,B and C)
At the end, add up the point value of all the pieces you've won.
Alternate Version:

`Add 1 red stack (Large, Medium, Small), give one to each player. The red
``piece trumps all other colors, but not size.
