Scissors beating (cutting) Lizard ? No, that could not be appropriate content for GW. Elephant 21:49, 14 February 2010 (UTC)

"two rewards for approximately 1/2 of his tokens"[edit]

I'm not sure about the phrase "a player will gain two rewards for approximately 1/2 of his tokens". I work out that for every Lunar Token you spend you are likely to receive 1/2 a Lunar Fortune and 1/2 a Sugary Blue Drink....

Cost: 1 Lunar Token

1/3 Win - 1 Lunar Fortune, 1 Sugary Blue Drink

1/3 Draw - 1 Lunar Token

1/3 Lose - Nothing

Average Net Cost = 1 - 1/3 = 2/3 Lunar Token

Average winnings = 1/3 Lunar Fortune, 1/3 Sugary Blue Drink

2/3 Lunar Tokens - 1/3 Lunar Fortune, 1/3 Sugary Blue Drink

x 3/2 =

1 Lunar Token - 1/2 Lunar Fortune, 1/2 Sugary Blue Drink

So surely it should say "a player will gain 2 rewards (i.e. 1 Lunar Fortune and 1 Sugary Blue Drink) for approximately 2 of his tokens"? --Combatter 09:31, 3 February 2012 (UTC)

But as 1 Fortune = 3 Tokens, the main article is correct. Your math is somehow stating that 1 apple = 1 banana. 87.66.35.72 23:38, 3 February 2012 (UTC)
Eh? --Combatter 00:50, 4 February 2012 (UTC)
Math was fine. Conclusion was also fine, but who cares about the sugary blue drinks ^^
Game Lunar token spent Outcome Lunar token rewarded Lunar fortune rewarded (also number of drinks)
1 1 Win (33% chance) 0 1
2 1 Lose (33% chance) 0 0
3 1 Draw (33% chance) 1 0
...
Tokens spent over 3 games: 3
Tokens given back over 3 games: 1
Ultimate tokens spent over 3 games: (3-1) = 2
Lunar fortunes won over 3 games: 1
Cost in lunar tokens of 1 lunar fortune: 2/1 = 2
