Describe

Describe

With this command you can play various games with people. At the moment the only command available is the old-time favourite rock-paper-scissors.

You'll first need to challenge someone, and your opponent will have to accept the challenge. Then you both decide what move to make, and the winner gets a shiny point.

You can find out how many points you have with 'status' as argument, and with 'abandon' games can be ended.
