Tobi has a point.

Seems like this is a good-vs.-evil team scenario, where Tobi's on the good team. The evil team might try to con the good-team's nature.

Since the teams have agreed to transport the "minimum amount" of fruit, presumably the good-team will actually do this.

Speculation: The evil-team might give the good-team too much fruit on purpose. They could lie and say that it was the minimum amount. Then they could demand that the good-team give them extra on the next round to close the gap.

Round 1, "minimum amount":
Good-team: 10 apples (actual-minimum)
Evil-team: 100 oranges (fake-minimum)

Round 2, "minimum amount" plus balance:
Good-team: 190 apples (fake-minimum + make-up)
Evil-team: 10 oranges (actual-minimum)

Round 3:
Evil-team says, "Screw you guys, we won, we'll only do transfers of 10-at-a-time now.", or something like that.

Tobi doesn't know what a tree is.

Interesting hypothesis, but you assume that they can't cancel the deal or give less fruit when they see how much the other has brought.

I predict some kind of game theory thing where the very last fruit will be worth 99% of the points somehow. Maybe some kind of combination of the pirates dilemma and one those pick up stones games where the first player always loses.

But to be honest... Since the faces are computer programs why should the fruits be something else? :)

I like how Shalhia and Tobi are in kind of a passive aggressive contest where they try to out-nonchalant each other.

"I'm more nonplussed and uninvested in your actions!"
"No, I'm more nonplussed and uninvested in YOUR actions!"

It's even more amazing because I feel like she's the closest we have to a major antagonist right now and THAT'S their relationship.
