I just found another strange item while roaming the vast fields of cyberspace, and as usual, I’d like to share. This time around, it’s an outrageous refinement of the traditional Paper Rock Scissors game! If you thought playing with just three possible hand positions was too simple, this is definitely the game for you. As you can see, in this version there are no less than 25 hand positions, and each of them plays an intricate connection with the others. Sponge, wolf, cockroach, sponge, water… these are only some of the keywords to be remembered, along with the appropriate gestures and hierarchies. I wish the best of luck remembering all of them! Have fun!
ps – Here: to make your life easier, I’ve located this convenient flash version! There’s also a useful chart, along with the history behind the Ultimate Paper Rock Scissors available at RPS-25. Finally, if you want to get yourself a cool memory aid that you can distribute to your friends to motivate them towards learning the rules, go order some custom pens and have them engraved with the 25 keywords and symbols!
