For my first attempt at creating a text-based game in C++, I made a simple game of Rock, Paper, Scissors. To run this simple two-player game all you need is a compiler. The easiest way to compile is using an IDE such as Code :: Blocks by creating a console project and build and run. You may add or change the functionality of the code by adding features such as hiding players selections to make the game fair and or adding a play again function.
using namespace std;
