NeighborCard: The first mini game in NeighborStar
This mini game is an extension of the rock-paper-scissors played by two or more people.

Game Philosophy: Managing Conflict & Communication
A competitive attitude deflects attention from the win-win alternative. Collaboration works when the groups are willing to focus on a larger shared goal. It is much harder to develop and maintain a collaborative arrangement, but in the long run the joint payoffs are much greater.

Game Rules:
A card set contains 12 cards: 4 Rock, 4 Scissors, and 4 Paper
Each player has a starting HP of 500
Rock defeats Scissors; Scissors defeats Paper; Paper defeats Rock; Loser HP -100
If both players choose the same card, the game is tied
A game dice with 6 game formula:
1. Paper defeats Rock: Loser HP -300
2. Scissors defeats Paper: Loser HP -300
3. Rock defeats Scissors: Loser HP -300
4. If both players choose rock, Both HP +200
5. If both players choose scissors, Both HP +200
6. If both players choose paper, Both HP +200
When the game over, the remaining HP will be contributed as Starfruit to the player’s NeighborStar

How to Play:
Step 1: Each player draw 6 cards randomly from the card set
Step 2: Each player put 1 card onto the table
Step 3: When both players are ready, the game dice is thrown and the formula is announced
Step 4: The HP of both side is adjusted based on the game formula of the dice
Step 5: Repeat Step 2 to 4 for until one side’s HP drop to 0 or all the cards have been used up
