In fact it always keeps the score at 0 for both players. It's fully 
functional otherwise, but it's bothering me that I can't get it to work.

I was actually thinking of making a simple rock paper scissors game so I
went ahead and cobbled it together, using a design with a class and
generally a structured approach.. It keeps the scores, too, and you can
set both players to be AI, or one to be AI, or both to be humans:

(it needs python3 but can be easily changed to work with python2.x)
