It’s the return of Roshambo in the Cloud! The Rock, Paper, Azure team is back with the latest version of the on-line competition and a six-week sweepstakes where you could win one of five $50 Gift Cards weekly and even a Microsoft Surface at the end of the six-week run!
The Rock, Paper, Azure game engine is hosted in Windows Azure (of course!) and manages the rounds, pitting each participant’s entry against everyone else in the game to generate the live leaderboard. Every time someone joins the game or updates their entry, rounds are set in motion, and the leaderboard is updated.
It’s an easy three-step process:
Each week for six weeks - beginning this Friday, December 21st, 2012, through Friday, January 25, 2013 - five entries will be drawn at random (at 2 p.m. ET) to receive a $50 Best Buy card. You just need to get in the game to be eligible - heck, just deploy one of the sample pre-coded bots, and you're in the running!
If you do manage to be in the top 10 at the end of any given week (2 p.m.. ET), you'll automatically be entered into the Grand Prize drawing at which three winners will be randomly selected to win
Be sure to read the full contest rules for details, and do note this sweepstakes is open only to legal residents (age 18 or older) of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia
