The example

0 -> 1, 3
1 -> 2, 4
2 -> 0, 3
3 -> 1, 4
4 -> 0, 2

is consistent, and it has 5 automorphisms, but it isn‘t the usual „Rock-Paper-Scissors-Lizard-Spock" game.

The examples are unusual.
0 -> 1
1 -> 2
2 -> 0 with rps would mean
„rock beats paper and paper beats scissors and scissors beats rock.

For my understanding:

„(0,1,2) is a losing position since the possible moves result in the positions (0,1,1) or (0,0,2)“

(0,1,2) can result in the position (0,0,1), too?
