#Giveaway version 4
#Trying to lose as many rounds as possible and get to the bottom of the leaderboard
#This is difficult already with some of the (inadvertantly?) really bad RPS programs out there
#But it could get much more difficult fast if any clever folks start 
#really trying to be bad

#BADCHOICES algorithm is based on "Really losing program" by Gandaro
