This document is in progress. Hopefully the others on the site here will help me write it so we get all the details down for you. :)
Now, I might not be the best of all people to be writing this guide, but I had to start by learning from Robert and Nad as most people I have run into have, so, perhaps I can help shed some light on how to get started playing the game we’ve all come to call “Heek.”
The game is similar to that which we already know as Rock, Paper, Scissors; the difference being that instead of those three objects, we have a Book, a Beetle, and a Pen. In a simple two-player game, the Pen beats the book, and the book beats the beetle, and the beetle beats the pen.
(The analogy, which is based off some information learned in Gahreesen, is this: The Pen writes in the Book; The Book crushes the Beetle; The Beetle eats the ink from the Pen.)
The difference in this game derives from the fact that you can play with up to five people in a given round, and there is a Ranking system associated with your success in the game. (But if you just like to play, you can completely ignore the ranking system part of it.)
Playing the Game
There isn’t much to playing the actual game. Once you have everyone who wants to play seated at the Ahyoheek table, each player can cast their “object.” (To do so, you just click on one of the buttons on the console in front of your seat.)
After the first player has made their choice, a counter in the center of the table starts counting down from five, giving all other players 5 seconds to make their choices as well.
Once either everyone has selected a play, or the timer runs out, the table gives points to each person for every object on the table that they beat, and subtracts them for each object that they lost to. Then, the table adds up the points and announces the winner by adding a light of the same color as their play to the display in front of the winning player. (A red light for a round won with a Pen, a green light for one won with a Book, and blue for a Beetle.) Should you win three rounds with a given object, you’re declared the winner of that match.
Upon winning a match, you receive all the rank points that were bet on that round. Each player bets a number of points equal to their rank on each game that they participate in. (you must make at least one move to “participate” in a game.) For more information on the ranking system, see the Ahyoheek notes text.
