New Article from the Midlothian Exchange
"New game exercises the brain"

Who was the first woman to dunk in a professional basketball game? Which college coach earned her eighth national championship in 2008? What are the squares called that mark six feet away from the basket? If you answered Lisa Leslie, Pat Summit and blocks, respectively, you could be well on your way to beating your opponent or the computer in a new computer game by Ronald Robinson Entertainment.
Ronald Robinson Entertainment is an independent video game company developed by Chesterfield resident Ronald Robinson. The new game ‘Show Me Your Game’ is the company’s first on the market and is directed toward young women with an interest in basketball.
“I’ve been [working on] this game for a couple of years now,” Robinson explained. “My daughter plays basketball and I said ‘You know what? There’s not a whole lot of [computer] games out there for females.’”
The computer game is based on the school-yard game H.O.R.S.E., which is played by two or more players. The first person shoots the basketball from whichever position on the court they choose. If they make the shot, the next person must shoot from the same spot. If they make the shot, it’s the next person’s turn; if they miss, they earn a letter. The first person to spell H.O.R.S.E. loses the game.
In the computerized version, there is a two-player and a one-player mode. In the one player mode, each missed shot earns a letter; in two-player mode, the game is played traditionally. A shot is made or missed based on if the player answers a trivia question about women’s basketball correctly or incorrectly.
“My daughter, she knows how to play the game, but she doesn’t know the history of the game, so I devised a game to show her, you know, a lot of people paved the way for [her] to be where [she] is today,” Robinson said.
Robinson came up with the trivia questions and answers on his own through books and online research. He came up with a total of 200 questions, but with little background in computers, Robinson says he needed a little help making the game a reality.
“I came up with the concept and I found an independent graphic artist that did all of the drawing for me … Then from there I found a programmer and told the programmer how I wanted the player’s knees to bend, dribbling, different ways that the ball should go into the basket … I envisioned the whole thing,” Robinson said.
To add a little more excitement to the game, there is a shot clock, which gives the player 20 seconds to answer the trivia question. When the clock runs out, the question is automatically counted as incorrect. Incorrect or unanswered questions are thrown back in the pile and can come up again until they are answered correctly, in fact, a player doesn’t know if they’ve gotten the question right or wrong until their computer player shoots the ball. Each game is a fairly fast play, though the more knowledge you have about the game, the longer it takes to accumulate letters and come to the end of the round.
Parts of the game may look familiar. There is a scorers’ table where the questions pop up, players take their shots from the foul line, and if you look carefully, team jersey’s for player one are in orange and white and read “Chiefs” on the back This is because shooter one is based on Robinson’s daughter Rachel who played girls’ varsity basketball at Monacan High School. Player two wears a maroon and white jersey reading “Wave” and is based on his younger daughter Courtney.
Robinson, a security specialist with Richmond Public Schools by day, is working on more trivia games involving football and possibly racing for the future. Still, he says there’s nothing like seeing that first creation to fruition.
“I never thought I could do a video game,” Robinson said. “To go from laying in bed and thinking about a concept … to putting your hand on it, that’s exciting.”
