Rock, Paper, Scissors


The Crazed Asian Game that anyone can play without any tools. The game is often used as a selection method similar to tossing a coin.

According to Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rock-paper-scissors

The players count aloud to three, or speak the name of the game (e.g. “Rock! Paper! Scissors!” or “Ro! Cham! Beau!” or “Ching! Chang! Chong!), each time raising one hand in a fist and swinging it down on the count. On the third count (saying “scissors!” or “Beau!”), the players change their hands into one of three gestures, which they then “throw” by extending it towards their opponent. Variations include a version where players use a fourth count — “Shoot!” — before throwing their gesture, or a version where they only shake their hands twice before “throwing.” Others prefer a five count cadence by saying “Says Shoot!” before throwing their gesture. The gestures are:

  • Rock, represented by a clenched fist.
  • Scissors, represented by the index and middle fingers extended and separated.
  • Paper, represented by an open hand, with the fingers connected (horizontal).

The objective is to select a gesture which defeats that of the opponent. Gestures are resolved as follows:

  • Rock blunts or breaks scissors: that is, rock defeats scissors
  • Scissors cut paper: scissors defeats paper
  • Paper covers or captures rock: paper defeats rock

If both players choose the same gesture, the game is tied and the players throw again.
